The report describes a semi-automated system for the continuous measurement of the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the surface of the oceans. It consists of an infrared gas analyzer measuring the carbon dioxide concentration of an air stream which is continuously equilibrated with a seawater sample stream. A detailed description is given of the complete system and its component parts. Topics covered include design criteria, description of the components purchased or designed and constructed, and the accuracy, performance characteristics, and reliability of the system and its components. The calibration of the system and corrections for instrumental and operational errors are discussed and the methods employed for processing and presenting the data are given. Fully documented computer programs for data processing are presented. Author
