Common approaches were used to calculate the anthropogenic CO2, equations were proposed to characterize anthropogenic variations in pH values (ΔpHant) in the Pacific Subarctic. For the treated area, the temporal and spatial ΔpHant variability was analyzed in 1986 and 2001–2004. From the ΔpHant values, the influence of pH variations on iron solubility in seawater was considered.
