Ocean data base on climate relevant sulphur gases
The first database containing mainly seaborne measurements of the gases carbonyl sulphide (OCS) and carbon disulfide (CS2) is accepted as of February 2020 in the journal Earth System Science Data (ESSD, data accessible from PANGAEA). Oceanic emissions are a major uncertainty in the atmospheric budget of both gases. This database addresses this gap by facilitating the identification of global patterns and supporting model evaluation. The database compiles concentration data from seawater and the marine boundary layer from over 40 cruises from 1982 to 2019. The “living data approach” of ESSD enables regular updates.
