Main Research Interests
Carbon dioxide chemistry of seawater In situ measurement of seawater pCO2
Current Research Projects
High-precision in situ pCO2 determination in surface seawater, and general carbon dioxide chemistry of seawater in the NZ region. 2 years from July 1, 2000: Kim Currie, Keith Hunter and Burns Macaskill (NIWA).This project is part of a joint University of Otago-NIWA programme. Our role is to characterise, through pCO2 measurements, the CO2 chemistry of the New Zealand oceanic region, and develop a better predictive capability for the role of this oceanic region as a sink for fossil fuel CO2.
