NOAA Data Report ERL AOML-27
Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorologicl Laboratory
From February 24 to May 19, 1992, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Climate and Global Change Program sponsored a major cooperative effort with the U.S. Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (U.S. JGOFS) to study the role of equtorial processes on CO2 cycling in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific during the 1991-92 El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) event. The NOAA Ship Malcolm Baldrige performed four transequatorial sections in the region and this report presents hydrographic and chemical data from that cruise including tables of the following data from each station: hydrography from each CTD cast at the bottle trip depths, dissolved oxygen, fCO2, DIC, pH, TALK, nutrients, and TOC. Descriptions of the sampling techniques and analytical methods used in the collection and processing of these data are also presented.
Our thanks to the officers and crew of the Malcolm Baldridge, Dennis Frazel, Jia-Zhong Zhang, and Betty Huss. This research was supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate and Global Change project. We thank Dr. James F. Todd of the NOAA Office of Global Programs and Neil Andersen of the National Science Foundation for the efforts in the coordination of this joint study.
