Beam Attenuation Coefficient (due to particles) to Particulate Ogranic Carbon regression

Regression between Beam Cp and POC for the Pacific Ocean based on data from Antarctic Polar Front Zone study (RV R.Revelle cruises: KIWI-06, KIWI-07, KIWI-08, & KIVI-09), and EqPac study (RV Th.Thompson cruise TT-012).

Beam Attenuation Coefficient profiles were measured using a SeaTech transmissometer interfaced with a CTD.

Particulate Organic Carbon concentration were determined by filtering water samples from Niskin bottles on the CTD rosette.

Data from equal depths were extracted and used for analysis.

A Model II regression has been applied.
