This dataset consists of data collected from the Salish Sea, British Columbia, specifically nearshore locations in Baynes Sound and Okeover Inlet; mostly via small skiffs and hand deployment of Niskin bottles. Some samples were collected from the CCGS Vector between 2015-2018. These data are used in "Using Endmember Models to Estimate Seasonal Carbonate Chemistry and Acidification Sensitivity in Temperate Estuaries" (2021) published in Geophysical Research Letters. Discrete total alkalinity (TA); dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC); dissolved oxygen; salinity; and nutrient samples were taken, 5L Niskin bottles and analyzed at the Institute of Ocean Sciences; Sidney, Canada. CTD profiles were recorded with each cast. A total of 578 DIC and TA pairs were sampled with a 20% replication rate; and the pooled standard deviations (of difference between replicate pairs) were calculated to be 2.1 umol/kg and 3.9 umol/kg respectively.

The samples were stored at room temperature and moved to cold storage on-shore before on-shore laboratory analysis. The samples were analysed for DIC using a VINTA sample handling system in conjunction with a coulometer (UIC Inc.) to quantify total CO2 purged from the acidified sample.

  • Parameter or Variable: Total alkalinity; Abbreviation: TA; Unit: umol/kg; Observation type: profile; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: in-situ observation; Measured or calculated: Measured; Calculation method and parameters: Concentration (umol / kg) = concentration (umoles/litre) / density (10 C;S); Sampling instrument: Niskin bottle; 5 L; Analyzing instrument: In-house automated sampler with Metrohm Dosimat 665 and LabView TM software; Type of titration: Potentiometric multi point titration; Cell type (open or closed): open; Curve fitting method: Gran point; Detailed sampling and analyzing information: Seawater samples were collected from standard depths in 500 mL borosilicate glass reagent bottles. 5 mL of water was removed to allow room for thermal expansion and the sample was preserved within 30 minutes of collection with 0.1 mL of a mercuric chloride saturated solution; then sealed with Apiezon M grease and the ground glass stoppers secured in place with rubber bands. The samples were stored at room temperature and moved to cold stoage on-shore until on-shore laboratory analysis. TA in the sample was determined using an open cell automated potentiometric titration with a Metrohm Dosimat 665 dosing unit controlled by LabView TM software. The multi-point titration; using 0.1N HCl titrant containing 35 g of sodium chloride per litre of acid; was performed in a temperature controlled flask held at 25 C with Gran endpoint determination.
