NOAA Coral Reef Watch Monthly 25 km Ocean Acidification Product Suite from 2005-01-01 to 2005-12-31 covering the Greater Caribbean Region (NODC Accession 0075253)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

The NOAA Coral Reef Watch Experimental Ocean Acidification Product Suite (OAPS) offers an important synthesis of satellite and modeled environmental datasets to provide a synoptic estimate of sea surface carbonate chemistry in the Greater Caribbean Region. This tool complements ongoing geochemical surveys and monitoring efforts in the region by providing estimates of changing ocean chemistry on a broader spatial and temporal scale than shipboard observations alone can permit. The maps presented here are monthly averages of daily estimates derived according to Gledhill et al., 2008. Near-real-time estimates are modeled from daily fields of NOAA Optimum Interpolation Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer - Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AVHRR-AMSRE) SST, Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model + Navey Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation (HYCOM + NCODA) modeled sea surface salinity (SSS), NOAA National Centers for Environmental Predication (NCEP) sea-level pressure (SLP), and estimates of atmospheric CO2 derived from the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory GLOBALVIEW-CO2 reference marine boundary layer (MBL). The parameters provided in this data set include sea surface temperature (SST), sea surface salinity (SSS), partial pressure of carbon dioxide for seawater (pCO2sw), total alkilinity (TA), total inorganic carbon (TC), pH, aragonite saturation state (SSA), bicarbonate ion concentration (HCO3), and carbonate ion concentration (CO3). All parameters are provided at monthly, 25km resolution.
