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 ...
Spatial and Temporal Variability in Carbonate Chemistry in San Juan Archipelago
This is the first study that characterizes the carbonate parameters in the Salish Sea surrounding the San Juan Archipelago. Water samples were collected from 9 sites on multiple days and analyzed for total alkalinity and dissolved inorganic carbon. Results show high spatial and temporal variability in carbonated parameters. ...
