Abstract

The Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (SOCAT, www.socat.info) and the Global Data Analysis Project version 2 (GLODAP2) are synthesis activities by the international marine carbon community. SOCAT version 2 brings together 10.1 million, quality-controlled, surface water fCO2 (fugacity of carbon dioxide) values from 1968 to 2011 for the global oceans and coastal seas (Fig. 1). GLODAP2, to be made public in autumn 2014, has full depth inorganic carbon parameters, nutrients, oxygen, transient tracers and ancillary parameters from 775 cruises globally from 1972 to 2013 (Fig. 2). It puts GLODAP, CARINA and PACIFICA in a coherent framework, while adding 170 new cruises.
