14.3.1 An increase in anthropogenic carbon (ΔCant) of ~1 μmol kg-1 yr-1 was estimated for subsurface winter-mixed layer waters of the Rockall Trough between 1991 and 2010. This equates to a calculated pH reduction of 0.02 pH units per decade.
Decreases in pH were also calculated for deeper water masses over the 19 year period including Labrador Seawater (LSW) at 1500–2000m deep a decrease in pH of ~0.015 units per decade was calculated.
