The co2sys_xls_program directory consists of the new CO2SYS Program Developed for CO2 System Calculations in MS Excel. The EXCEL Macro spreadsheet calculates the concentrations of inorganic
carbon system parameters if two of the parameters are provided along with temperature, pressure, total phosphate concentration, and total silicate concentration. The four inorganic carbon parameters are:
TA = total alkalinity
TCO2 = total inorganic carbon
pH = acidity
pCO2 or fCO2 = partial pressure of CO2 or fugacity of CO2.
