Research project: RAGNARoCC: Radiatively active gases from the North Atlantic Region and Climate Change

Currently Active: 
Yes

This NERC funded consortium project investigates the variability of anthropogenic CO2 uptake by the North Atlantic Ocean, using observations and modelling approaches.

The project will contribute to new observations of greenhouse gas fluxes in the N Atlantic. In addition, RAGNARoCC will make new observations of the carbon inventory along two deepwater sections in the North Atlantic. Novel data synthesis and modelling approaches will be used to produce regional flux estimates and determine the skill of current coupled climate-carbon models.

The air-sea flux is related to the net rate of increase of carbon in the basin as a whole (storage), minus the net transport into the region as measured on a hydrographic section.
