Trans Pacific uwpCO2

In 2004, the CO2 group at PMEL began deploying underway pCO2 systems on container ships, allowing us to document the annual and seasonal changes in surface pCO2 all the way across the equatorial Pacific basin. From 2004 to the present, we have collected pCO2 along 18 transects from Long Beach, California to New Zealand/Australia, and on 10 transects from Long Beach to Hong Kong.
