This dataset was assembled for the purpose of testing the mutual consistency of the TA-TCO2-pCO2 observations in surface ocean water using an inorganic carbon chemistry model.

The potential alkalinity-salinity relationships in 33 oceanic regions were obtained using this datasat. These relationships were used to map the distribution of the total alkalinity (= potential alkalinity - nitrate concentration) over the global oceans.

Associated dataset: LDEO surface gridded carbon parameters.
