database for marine carbon
In this work we present the data synthesis project CARIMED (CARbon in the MEDiterranean Sea), we aim to create a uniformly formatted consistent quality controlled public database for carbon relevant variables from hydrographic cruises covering the whole water column and the different basins in the MedSea. Both primary and secondary quality control (QC) of the data has been performed following the experience gathered in CARINA and GLODAPv2. The motivation for this initiative stemmed from two CIESM (Mediterranean Science Commission) workshops, the first one in Menton (France) October 2008 (CIESM, 2008) focused on the impact of OA on biological, chemical and physical systems in the MedSea, and the second one in Supetar (Croatia) May 2011 (CIESM, 2012) focused on designing the Mediterranean Sea repeat hydrography program (MED-SHIP). The unresolved issues regarding the CO2 system in the MedSea were summarized in Malanotte-Rizzoli et al. (Oc Sc, 2014), one of them the temporal and spatial ...
