The potential of using remote sensing data to estimate air–sea CO2 exchange in the Baltic Sea

Gaëlle Parard et al.

Data sets

Remote Sensing data to estimate pCO2 and Air–Sea CO2 exchange Gaelle, P., Rutgersson, A., and Charantonis, A.-A.

Short summary
Coastal environments and shelf sea represent 7.6 % of the total oceanic surface area. They are, however, biogeochemically more dynamic and probably more vulnerable to climate change than the open ocean. Whatever the responses of the open ocean to climate change, they will propagate to the coastal ocean. We used the self-organizing multiple linear output (SOMLO) method to estimate the ocean surface pCO2 in the Baltic Sea from remotely sensed measurements and we estimated the air–sea CO2 flux.
