Excess dissolved inorganic carbon in the deep Greenland Sea / Leif G. Anderson, M. Chierici, E. Fogelqvist, T. Johannessen.

Title: Excess dissolved inorganic carbon in the deep Greenland Sea / Leif G. Anderson, M. Chierici, E. Fogelqvist, T. Johannessen.
Author(s): Anderson, Leif G.
Chierici, M.
Fogelqvist, E.
Johannessen, T.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Cambridge: Sea Ice Group, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge
In: ESOP. European Subpolar Ocean Programme. Sea ice - ocean interactions. Volume 2. (1996.),
Abstract: Data from the carbonate system and the transient tracers, CFC-11 and CCl4, in the Greenland Sea and western Eurasian Basin are used to deduce the sources and magnitude of excess dissolved inorganic carbon in the deep Greenland Sea. From salinity data the relative amount of advective water is estimated to be about 20 per cent below 1500 m. Data from the western Eurasian Basin, collected during the Oden-91 cruise, are used for the advective source waters. A simple mixing box model is applied to estimate the evolution, since pre-industrial times, of CFCs as well as anthropogenic total dissolved inorganic carbon in the deep waters of the Greenland Sea and the Eurasian Basin. In order to explain the measured CFC data, a renewal rate by convection of between 0.5 and 1 per cent is needed below 1500 m in the Greenland Sea and between 0.2 and 0.5 per cent in the eastern Eurasian Basin. This corresponds to formation rates which sequester anthropogenic carbon dioxide.
