A study on the distribution characteristics of pH in the Amundsen Sea in 2011.
To investigate the controls that affect inorganic carbon in the water column of the Amundsen Sea, hydrographic survey using IBRV Araon was carried out from December 20, 2010 to January 22, 2011. At each site, 374 samples for pH were collected from Niskin bottle to 250 ml polypropylene bottles on board. Accurate measurement concerning spatio-temporal variability in CO2 in the water column is highly important to understanding of global carbon cycle and reliable prediction for the future atmospheric concentration of CO2. From flux study perspective of CO2, the Amundsen Sea of the Southern Ocean has known as sink for atmospheric CO2 owing to high biological production. But there wasn't enough data, and sea ice have an ambiguous role of air-sea CO2 exchange so that further research must be conducted.
