    Laruelle, Goulven G.; Cai, Wei-Jun; Hu, Xinping; Gruber, Nicolas; Mackenzie, Fred T.; Regnier, Pierre (2018-01-31)
    It has been speculated that the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) in shelf waters may lag the rise in atmospheric CO2. Here, we show that this is the case across many shelf regions, implying a tendency for enhanced ...
