Dear Isogeochemists,
 
I have some questions concerning ocean pH.
 
- What causes main changes in ocean pH?
- What is the expected seasonal variability?
- How does it change with depth? Is it more constant at deeper levels?
- What is the relation between ocean pH and salinity/temperature/alkalinity/nitrates...? Can it be calculated from these parameters?
- Is there a database with gridded ocean pH's  from different depths (preferentially including the Baltic, Black Sea, Caspian Sea, Mediterranean), annual and seasonal?
 
Hope someone can help me!
Kind regards,
 
Kenneth Mertens
