Biogeochemical Cycling in the Gulf of Mexico

SABGOM model domain with water depth

Domain of the South Atlantic Bight and Gulf of Mexico (SABGOM) model showing water depth (m). For analysis, the Gulf was divided into five subregions used in this study, which are Mexico Shelf (MX), Western Gulf of Mexico Shelf (WGoM), Northern Gulf of Mexico Shelf (NGoM), West Florida Shelf (WF), and open ocean. Arrows indicate the Loop Current (figure from Xue et al., 2016).

CMS: Simulated Physical-Biogeochemical Data, SABGOM Model, Gulf of Mexico, 2005-2010

This dataset contains monthly mean ocean surface physical and biogeochemical data for the Gulf of Mexico simulated by the South Atlantic Bight and Gulf of Mexico (SABGOM) model on a 5-km grid from 2005 to 2010. The simulated data include ocean surface salinity, temperature, dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN), dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2), air-sea CO2 flux, surface currents, and primary production. The SABGOM model is a coupled physical-biogeochemical model for studying circulation and biochemical cycling for the entire Gulf of Mexico to achieve an improved understanding of marine ecosystem variations and their relations with three-dimensional ocean circulation in a gulf-wide context.
