Short summary
Using a small research vessel based out of Cambridge Bay in the Kitikmeot Sea (Canadian Arctic Archipelago), we were able to make measurements of surface ocean pCO2 shortly after sea ice breakup for 4 consecutive years. We compare our measurements to previous underway measurements and the two ongoing ocean carbon observatories in the region. We identify high interannual variability and a potential bias in previous estimates due to lower pCO2 in bays and inlets.
