Abstract:

A seagoing gas chromatographic system for the rapid and precise determination of dissolved gases in sea water is described. Separate instruments are employed for total inorganic carbon, and for nitrogen, oxygen, and argon analyses. Factors affecting the design, calibration, and shipboard operation of the system are discussed in detail. Results of intercomparisons with other analytical techniques confirm the accuracy of the gas chromatographic method. Profiles of ΣCO2, O2, and N2 measured aboard ship are presented and discussed.
