Short summary
We used a recently developed tool – FluxEngine, to calculate monthly net carbon air–sea CO2 fluxes for the extratropical North Atlantic Ocean, European Arctic, and global values, using several available parameterizations of gas transfer velocity on different dependence of wind speed. The aim of the study is to constrain the uncertainty caused by the choice of parameterization in the North Atlantic, a large sink of CO2 and a region with good measurement coverage, characterized by strong winds.
