Abstract

This dataset contains 325 measurements of the stable isotope composition of dissolved inorganic carbon in seawater in samples collected during cruise D379 in the Northeastern Atlantic and Nordic Seas in August 2012. Sample analysis was carried out at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre - Isotope Community Support Facility in East Kilbride, UK. The results fall in a range from -0.58 to +2.37 per mille, relative to the Vienna Peedee Belemnite internation standard. The measurement precision, calculated from measurements of samples collected in duplicate, is 0.07 per mille.
