An observation-based global monthly gridded sea surface pCO2 product from 1982 onward and its monthly climatology (NCEI Accession 0160558)

Peter Landschützer, Nicolas Gruber & Dorothee C. E. Bakker
This NCEI accession contains observation-based pCO2 data and a derived monthly climatology. The observation-based pCO2 fields were created using a 2-step neural network method extensively described and validated in Landschützer et al. 2013, 2014, 2016. The method first clusters the global ocean into biogeochemical provinces and in a second step reconstructs the non-liner relationship between CO2 driver variables and observations from the 4th release of the Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (SOCAT, Bakker et al. 2016)....
