Dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity, pH on total scale, nutrients, and other variables collected from surface discrete observations using Niskin bottle and other instruments during the R/V Savannah cruise SAV1803 (EXPOCODE 33H620180308) in the west coast of Florida, Gulf of Mexico from 2018-03-08 to 2018-03-13 (NCEI Accession 0189038)

This NCEI accession contains the surface discrete measurements of dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity, pH on total scale and nutrients during the R/V Savannah cruise SAV1803 (EXPOCODE 33H620180308) in the west coast of Florida, Gulf of Mexico from 2018-03-08 to 2018-03-13 (NCEI Accession 0189038). Increasing amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide from human industrial activities are causing changes in global ocean carbon chemistry resulting in a reduction in pH, a process termed ocean acidification. In support of the coastal monitoring and research objectives of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP), the South Florida Project Cruises (SFP) are utilized to collect water samples to measure surface water inorganic carbon and hydrographic parameters including nutrients. Samples are collected from seven stations on a bi-monthly basis to monitor the outflow of the Shark River Slough (SRS) into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Water samples are sent to and analyzed by scientists at the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) for dissolved inorganic carbon, pH, total alkalinity and nutrient concentrations. These data are used to observe the effects of the SRS on acidification in the coastal ocean.
