Processed CO2 measurements during the 2021-2022 Saildrone 1079 mission (Eastern Tropical Atlantic area)


In the framework of the EuroSea project (Task 7.3), a demonstration mission in the Tropical Atlantic has been conducted to enhance and optimize the network design of the Tropical Atlantic Observing System (TAOS) following an integrative multi-platform approach. One Gen6 Saildrone Explorer USV equipped with a CTD, wind, and carbon measurements systems sailed to the Cape Verde region where it acquired data between September 2021 and February 2023. Objectives for this mission include developing an integrated multi-platform approach to improving carbon monitoring, data quality, and regional upscaling from moored instrumentation, biogeochemical Argo floats, autonomous surface observation, and remote sensing products. The present dataset is also part of the SOCAT 2023 database.
