Approximate Summary Carbon Budget for the Exclusive Economic Zone of North America (a-d)
This table appears in chapter 16 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.
(a) Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) excludes EEZs of the Hawaiian and other islands.
(b) Positive fluxes are a source to the coastal ocean, while negative fluxes are a sink.
(c) The accumulation of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) is reported with a negative sign to illustrate that all fluxes balance.
(d) Tg C, teragrams of carbon.
|Process||Flux (Tg C per year) (b,d)|
|Input from land||106 ± 30|
|Uptake from atmosphere||160 ± 80|
|Burial||−65 ± 55|
|DIC (c) accumulation in coastal waters||−50 ± 25|
|Inferred open-ocean export (residual)||−151 ± 105|
