Measurement of CO2 in Marine and Coastal Waters in Latin America and the Caribbean

Within the framework of the regional project RLA/7/025, REMARCO researchers were able to standardize protocols to study the chemistry of carbonates, including sample collection and preservation, spectrophotometric pH analysis (X2), total alkalinity (x 3), carbon dissolved inorganic, estimation of uncertainty of the parameters of the CO2 system. This becomes one more achievement for the Latin American and Caribbean region to advance in the report of the SDG 14.3.1 indicator.
