Abstract
    Continental shelves and coastal areas are sites of severeal processes which can drastically influence the surface seawater pCO2 distribution and result in relatively important air-sea CO2 fluxes. We present here some data obtained in the English Channel, in the Gulf of Biscay and in the Celtic Sea which illustrate the effect of those coastal processes. It is in particular pointed out that upwelling and riverine input, which generate relatively important primary production, can also be sources of CO2 to the atmosphere.
