Working Group 13: Carbon dioxide in the North Pacific
  • Acronym: WG 13
  • Parent Committee: POC
  • Term: Oct. 1997 - Oct. 2001
  • Co-Chairs:
    Richard A. Feely (USA)
    Yukihiro Nojiri (Japan)
Terms of Reference
  1. Review the present level of knowledge on the processes controlling CO2 in the North Pacific, and identify the gaps and problems;
  2. Review the existing methodology of the CO2 measurements including the prepara-tion of standards and reference materials, and advise on the intercalibration and quality control procedures;
  3. Identify and encourage ongoing and planned national and international CO2-related scientific programmes in the North Pacific region, including long-term time-series observations;
  4. In coordination with TCODE, identify available and suitable data sets on the oceanic CO2 system, and recommend the mechanisms of data and information exchange;
  5. Develop a symposium, workshop or an annual meeting session on the CO2 study in the North Pacific.
