Variation in Carbonate Chemistry throughout the San Juan Archipelago
Due to the dynamic nature of the water masses in the San Juan archipelago, the carbonate chemistry has not yet been well defined in space and time. For this short-term study during a neap to spring tidal cycle in mid July 2011, we analyzed water samples as far west as Kellett Bluff and as far east as East Sound for dissolved ...
Variation of environmental forcings and the potential for changes in carbonate chemistry of the San Juan Archipelago
The carbonate chemistry of the San Juan Archipelago is extremely varied between regions of low to high tidal flushing. Salinity seems to be a driving parameter of the carbonate system through its effects on alkalinity. Freshwater from the Fraser River may control the environmental characteristics of water moving through the ...
