Hakai Institutes Burke-o-Lator pCO2/TCO2 Analyzer Discrete Sample Analysis Protocols

Katie Pocock, Wiley Evans, Alex Hare & Burk Hales
The Burke-o-Lator (BoL) pCO2/TCO2 analyzer measures carbon dioxide partial pressure (pCO2) and total dissolved inorganic carbon (TCO2) both continuously from a flow-through seawater stream and from seawater collected in discrete samples. The Hakai Institute operates BoL units at shore-side facilities along the Pacific coast in Alaska and British Columbia, and our discrete sample analyses of seawater marine carbonate system parameters are conducted using this instrumentation. This protocol is intended for BoL users that are familiar...

Chemistry and discharge data were collected from the stream outlet stations of the seven focal watersheds at...

Surface water CO2 parameters collected by Alaskan citizens around the northern Gulf of Alaska from April 2015 to August 2017

Hakai Institute
pCO2 and TCO2 measurements were made on surface seawater collected by tribal citizens and non-oceanographic agencies around Kenai Peninsula in the northern Gulf of Alaska from 2015 to 2017. Seawater was collected using bucket grabs or Niskin bottles and drawn into 350 mL amber glass bottles. Sample bottles were rinsed 3 times and then carefully filled with sample seawater as to not introduce bubbles into the sample. Sample temperature was then recorded using NIST traceable...

The effort to collect these data is a collaboration between the Sitka...

Dissolved organic carbon fluxes of seven watersheds in a bog forest ecosystem at Calvert Island, British Columbia, Canada

Maartje C. Korver
The coastal temperate rainforest of western British Columbia is a major store of carbon and an important contributor to the global carbon cycle. The flux of dissolved organic carbon from wetland-dominated soils is of vital importance for coastal freshwater and marine ecosystems. The objective of this study was to investigate the relation between discharge, DOC concentration and organic carbon flux for seven wetland and bog forest dominated watersheds for a summer and early fall rain...

Hakai Institute
The macrocystis canopy production dataset is a component of Hakai Institute’s Nearshore research and monitoring program. This dataset documents seasonal and annual changes in Macrocystis pyrifera biomass, density, productivity and reproduction on the Central Coast of British Columbia during the primary growing season (April to October) from 2014 to 2018. Density and morphometric measurements of kelps in situ were quantified within three to five permanent monitoring plots to determine kelp size structure, growth rates and...

Seascape connectivity data from a sub-tidal Zostera marina meadow, Choked Passage, Calvert Island, 2015

Hakai Institute
This dataset was used to determine how seascape connectivity alters the nursery function of seagrass (Zostera marina) meadows for young-of-the-year (YOY) rockfish. Here, the influence of seascape connectivity was assessed via the configuration and composition of adjacent habitats (kelp forests, sand), as well as allochthonous subsidies entering the seagrass food web. Data was collected in an extensive, sub-tidal Z. marina meadow in Choked Passage, on the Central Coast of British Columbia (51.675 °N, -128.119 °W)...

Stage-Discharge Time Series - Calvert Island - Archived Version 2.0

Hakai Institute
Streamflow calculation; a component of the Kwakshua Watersheds Program In natural streams it is not possible to continuously measure stream discharge, thus an indirect approach was used, where river height (stage) was continuously measured at a gauging station using a pressure transducer, with periodic manual measurements of discharge along the range of potential stages to develop a stage-discharge rating curve. Low flows were manually measured using the velocity-area method, with either a Swoffer Current Velocimeter...

Watersheds of the northern Pacific coastal temperate rainforest margin

Hakai Institute
This dataset is a polygon representation of watersheds draining to the rainforest margin along the Pacific coast of North America. Watersheds are discrete spatial units of topography that organize the flow of water and materials from land to sea, as well as the movement of biota between marine and freshwaters. As such, watersheds are fundamental geographic units of analysis used by diverse disciplines of science and management. However, regional scale watershed analyses are often hampered...
