New Seafloor Carbonate Synthesis Product

To interface with whole-earth scale models, such as climate and circulation models, ocean substrates data have been gridded from dbSEABED at the global scale. The grid resolution is low (0.1 degrees), as for most of the models. Leads of this mapping project are seeking collaborations with chemical oceanographers.   

The carbonate synthesis follows early work by Archer (1996, "An atlas of the distribution of calcium carbonate in sediments of the deep sea." Global Biogeochemical Cycles 10, 159-174), but with a number of changes:
