CO is one of the most important species to understand the photochemical processes associated with the marine colored dissolved organic matter cycle and global carbon cycle in surface seawater. In June/July 2002, a high-density dissolved CO dataset was obtained along the salinity gradient in Delaware Bay using a similar automated analytical system coupled to the ship's underway pumping system, sampling at ∼ 5 m. CO concentrations in surface seawater indicated the diurnal cycle, high in day time and low at night time, and were highest at the surface and decreased with depth, consistent with photochemical formation of CO in the surface and near-surface waters. This is an abstract of a paper originally presented at the 225th ACS National Meeting (New Orleans, LA 3/23-27/2003).
