Measurements of the total inorganic carbon in the water of Baffin Bay are interpreted to reflect increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel combustion. The increases are indicated by differences at various depths in the alkalinity and total inorganic carbon values after correction for calcium carbonate dissolution and decay of organic matter. These differences are comparable to the changes reported for GEOSECS Atlantic and Pacific Stations.
