Dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total alkalinity (TALk) and other data collected for the data validation and internal consistency for the Gray's Reef MAPCO2 Mooring in the South Atlantic Bight, Georgia, USA (31.400, -80.868) from 2018-07-25 to 2021-06-18 (NCEI Accession 0250709)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This dataset contains discrete bottle sample data for total Dissolved Inorganic Carbon (DIC) and Total Alkalinity (TAlk) samples, which were collected for validation and internal consistency analyses at the Gray's Reef MAPCO2 system off the coast of Georgia, USA in the South Atlantic Bight (31.400, -80.868). Samples were collected and immediately preserved with 0.2 µL of saturated Mercuric Chloride from 2018 through 2021. Samples were transported to the Cai-Laboratory at the University of Delaware for analysis. DIC is analyzed via a nondispersive infrared laser LICOR analyzer after 1 ml of 10% H3PO4 is injected into the sample and the CO2 gas is “stripped” out. TAlk is measured via Gran titration with HCl to an end-point of pH 3.2. The method precision is >0.1%. This effort was conducted in support of the coastal monitoring and research objectives of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP).
