About the Reykjafoss
In February 2011, the Global Carbon Group and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) center at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML), in collaboration with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, outfitted the commercial cargo ship Reykjafoss with an automated system to measure surface pCO2, temperature and salinity levels in the sub-polar North Atlantic.
About this Web Site
This web site provides access to the Reykjafoss data. The data are organized by year and by cruise. For each cruise, a graph showing the pCO2 values plotted on the cruise track is shown. Next to each graph are links to the comma-delimited data file and associated Readme text file. To download a particular file, select the year from the drop-down list box and click on GO. Select a cruise, right-click on the link to its data file and select the download option. The same procedure can be applied to download the Readme files. The Realtime Display link consists of plots of the data as they are received and is mainly used for troubleshooting. The realtime data has not been quality controlled and should not be used for scientific purposes. The Realtime Display plots represent raw (unprocessed) xCO2 data as a function of time and location. Other links in the menu bar on the left provide contact information and return access to the AOML GCC homepage
