Ocean carbonate parameters on the Canadian Atlantic Continental Shelf F. Cyr, O. Gibb, K. Azetsu-Scott, J. Chassé, P. Galbraith, G. Maillet, P. Pepin, S. Punshon, and M. Starr

Short summary
The ocean absorbs large quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere as a result of the burning of fossil fuels. This, in turn, causes ocean acidification, which poses a major threat to global ocean ecosystems. In this study, we compiled 9 years (2014–2022) of ocean carbonate data (i.e., ocean acidification parameters) collected in Atlantic Canada as part of the Atlantic Zone Monitoring Program.
