Annual mean sea surface dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) for the present day (1990s) from the Global Ocean Data Analysis Project climatology. Note the missing data in certain oceanic provinces including the Arctic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Malay Archipelago.
This model shows the global carbon cycle (in Gigatons of carbon per year), with estimated natural fluxes. Developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
