Contributions to SOLAS science

WG by WG:

  • 1. Surface ocean systems VOS line data (continious measurements)
  • 2. Interior ocean carbon storage Repeated section 75 N (discrete measurements)
  • 3. Carbon cycle climate sensitivities and feedbacks Mesocosm experiments (experimental data)
current vos lines vos volunteer observing ships

G.O. Sars Data

Barents Sea, Nordic Seas, North Atlantic

Current VOS Lines(VOS = Volunteer Observing Ships)

Station M

Total: 28

CaCO3 export productionData from Model output





ballast effect

Heinze, C., 2004, Simulating oceanic CaCO3 export production in the greenhouse, Geophysical Research Letters, 31, L16308

acidification feedbacks, A1B scenario:

less CaCO3 production ca. -20 ppm

and less particle ballast

ca. +20 ppm

compensate each other


vos line and other underway data
VOS line and other underway data

Data holdings from: Nuka Arctica, Trans Carrier and Norcliff VOS line

Plus additional underway measurements from various cruises (continious from R/V GO SARS)

Typical parameters:
