This report summarizes the results of the deliberations of the SCOR Working Group 75 on methodology for oceanic CO2 measurements at meetings in Hamburg (1983), Lake Arrowhead (1984), Les Houches (1985) and Woods Hole (1988). It reviews the scientific and technical basis for oceanic studies: measuring equipment, procedures, ocean carbon standards and intercalibration. The report describes the state-of-the-art methodology and recommends a program dedicated to determining the diurnal, seasonal and interannual variability of the oceanic carbon cycle. The framework of a global CO2 survey as an international effort is adopted by JGOFS (Joint Global Ocean Flux Stuy) in the world hydrographic program of WOCE (World Ocean Circulation Experiment).
