Field Activity 09FSH01

Identifier 09FSH01
Purpose Establish baseline levels for pCO2, alkalinity, and pH for coastal waters. Assess radon levels.
Location Cedar Key to FL Keys
Summary Approximately 1,800 data points were collected underway over a 1,300-kilometer (km) trackline using the Multiparameter Inorganic Carbon Analyzer (MICA). 8 discrete water samples were also taken at specific localities to corroborate underway data measurements.
Info derived Ocean chemistry (alkalinity, pH, Total Organic Carbon, Dissolved Inorganic Carbon, pCO2). Surface water radon.
Comments Additional Equipment: Radon sampler
