Carbon Dioxide, Hydrographic, and Chemical Data Obtained During the R/V Maurice Ewing
Cruise in the Atlantic Ocean (WOCE Section A17, 4 January21 - March 1994), ed. A. Kozyr.

Based on the comparison of the TALK data with other cruises and the analysis of the internal
consistency among the four variables of carbon system measured during the A17 section, we would suggest
to apply the following corrections for the data in the CDIAC database:
1. According to the comparison between TALK measured on A17 and recent cruises (CITHER-3, FICARAM-2, and FICARAM-3),
a correction of -8 µmol/kg is proposed for TALK.
2. Based on the internal consistency check carried out among the four carbon system variables, we propose to modify
the pH measurements adding by stations the values gathered in Table 3.8. (see section 3.7 of NDP-084).
