Abstract

This dataset contains 201 measurements (188 from CTD rosette, 13 from underway) of seawater dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and total alkalinity (TA) from the Celtic Sea (50 N, 8 W). The samples were collected during RRS Discovery cruise DY033 in July-Aug 2015, as part of the UK Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry research programme (UK-SSB), in order to constrain the interior DIC and TA inventories. Measurements were carried out using VINDTA 3C instruments (#024 and #038, Marianda, Germany) at the University of Southampton (UK). Updated from v1 (doi:10.5285/50fbe4de-f777-1cde-e053-6c86abc0a855) on 17-07-2017 to include an additional 44 measurements (44 from CTD rosette, 2 from underway). Bad results resulting from technical issues during analysis have been removed from these results, so there are no recognised issues. The data were collected as part of the SSB research programme in the CaNDyFloSS: Carbon and Nutrient Dynamics and Fluxes over Shelf Systems (NE/K00185X/1) research programme component. SSB was co-funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). The programme took a holistic approach to the cycling of nutrients and carbon and the controls on primary and secondary production in UK and European shelf seas, to increase understanding of these processes and their role in wider biogeochemical cycles. The British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) created the metadata entry and is responsible for holding master copies of the data.
