Real-Time Provisional High-Resolution Record of Surface Seawater Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Content Collected from Fanny Bay Oysters, British Columbia, Canada

This dataset includes continuous sea surface measurements of partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2), sea surface temperature and salinity collected from the Fanny Bay Oysters, British Columbia, Canada.

The Burke-o-Lator (BoL) pCO2/TCO2 analyzer measures carbon dioxide partial pressure (pCO2) and total dissolved inorganic carbon (TCO2) both continuously from a flow-through seawater stream and from seawater collected in discrete samples. The BoL is paired with a SBE 45 Thermosalinograph to measure seawater temperature and salinity.
