High-resolution record of 8-m seawater CO2 content entering Fanny Bay Oysters in Baynes Sound, British Columbia, Canada from March 2017 to November 2017

Baynes Sound, located on the northwestern side of the Strait of Georgia, has been a site for shore-based and high-resolution measurement of surface seawater CO2 content since March 2017. Measurements of in situ temperature, salinity, and CO2 partial pressure are made near-continuously from a seawater intake line at the Taylor Shellfish facility Fanny Bay Oysters with an intake 300 m from shore and at a depth of 8 m in Mud Bay, a peripheral bay on the eastern side of Baynes Sound. The effort to collect these data are part of the Hakai Institute’s directive to advance the understanding of carbon cycling in northeast Pacific coastal settings with specific emphasis on sea-air CO2 exchange and ocean acidification. This data contribution consists of measurements collected from March 7, 2017 to November 7, 2017. Type of Study: Continuous data record Temporal Coverage: March 7, 2017 to November 7, 2017 Spatial Coverage: Seawater drawn from 8-m depth approximately 300 m from shore in Mud Bay; eastern Baynes Sound; northwestern Strait of Georgia; 49.4731°N, 124.7864°W Geographic Names: Baynes Sound; northwestern Strait of Georgia; British Columbia coast; North Pacific Ocean Location of organism collection: N/A Platforms: Shellfish aquaculture plant; Taylor Shellfish Fanny Bay Oysters Version: 1.0 Submission Date: November 9, 2017 Variables: Partial pressure of carbon dioxide: Abbreviation: pCO2 Unit: µatm Observation type: measurements from continuously flowing seawater stream In-situ/Manipulation/Response variable: In situ observation Measured or calculated: calculated from measured CO2 mole fractions (xCO2) and ambient atmospheric pressure.
