A pressure- and temperature-independent property of seawater that determines in part the carbon content of seawater. Carbonate alkalinity is the sum of the concen- tration of bicarbonate plus two times the concentration of the carbonate ions.

alkalinity


A measure of the capacity of a solution to resist changes to pH when an acid or base is added. Since a solution that contains carbonates is better able to resist a change in pH, alkalinity is expressed as the concentration of calcium carbonate in the solution. In Ontario, lakes and rivers that flow over limestone bedrock are able to resist the effe [..]
