Abstract
    This report represents a summary of the discussions and recommendations, made during a meeting of the Carbon Dioxide Sub-Group of the Joint Panel on Oceanographic Tables and Standards in Miami, Florida, September 21-23, 1981.Comparisons of the dissociation constants of carbonic acid indicate substantial agreement between various available sets of data, but it was agreed that data for the dissociation constants of boric acid needed closer scrutiny. Studies of the solubility product of calcite and aragonite in seawater still show unsatisfactory agreement, particularly for aragonite.Recommendations are presented for a formula for the solubility of carbon dioxide, the measurement of pH, and further work on the dissociated constants of carbonic acid and boric acid, as well as on the solubility product of calcium carbonate in seawater.
