“Ocean programs generally focus on open ocean processes, thus missing the CO2 exchange along the ocean margins that can affect the CO2 content of air entering or leaving North America. Coastal upwelling and biological production rates are high in these regions, which also receive large carbon fluxes from rivers. In addition, a large fraction of the ocean's surface waters may acquire the chemical and biological characteristics that control net CO2 exchange via margin processes. Thus, the inf1uence of nearshore processes may extend beyond the geographic boundaries of ocean margins. The North American Carbon Program therefore requires
marine observations and diagnostic models focused on understanding the role of coastal systems on adjacent ocean basins and on atmospheric CO2 distributions.”
