Re: carbon constants



Hi Bob,

        The example calculation you did is backwards from the one that
would be most informative for our problem, since our simulations are done
by fixing atmospheric pCO2.  The critical issue is the effect on oceanic
DIC for a given pCO2.  I would be very interested in seeing how much
difference leaving out the extra terms makes for that.  Will it have a
significant impact on the comparison of model simulations with DIC
observations?

Thanks!  Jorge
