Information on CO2 Instrumentation
International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) website (click on Sensors in lefthand menu) - includes instrumentation information for measuring dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), pH, total alkalinity, pCO2, and particulate carbon

REQUIRED SOFTWARE

CO2SYS (Sabine)

CO2SYS_calc_XLS: Pierrot, D. E. Lewis,and D. W. R. Wallace. 2006. MS Excel Program Developed for CO2 System Calculations. ORNL/CDIAC-105a. Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Department of Energy, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.


SEACARB (Gattuso)

The software package seacarb will be used during the course. All participants are invited to download and install, before the course starts, the following software on their laptop:

1) The version of the R program suitable with the OS installed on your laptop. Versions for Mac OSX, linux, unix and Windows are available here.

2) The R package seacarb. To do that, launch R, go to "Packages & Data:Packages installer", click on "Get list", look for seacarb and click "Install selected".

3) seacarb manual

Matlab Scripts (download matlab files to the right)



OCEAN DATA VIEW (Schlitzer)

Download ODV 4.2.0. Choose the version for your computer (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux) and follow the installation instructions. People need to register to get access.

Download the CARINA data and follow installation instructions.

Download the GLODAP data and follow installation instructions.

Participants new to ODV are strongly encouraged to try running ODV on the CARINA and GLODAP datasets before they come to the course. The getting started document and the ODV User's Guide should help you get acquainted with the software. Context-sensitive help is available from inside ODV. Participants are also strongly encouraged to bring their own data. Practicing the import of new data into ODV will be part of the course.
