This dataset reports ocenanic CO2 parameters measured on discret samples collected at the SOLEMIO station (Bay of Marseille - North Western Mediterranean Sea - aprox. 65 m depth). The SOLEMIO station is part of the French national network of coastal observation SOMLIT (Service d’Observation en Milieu LITtoral – http://somlit.epoc.u-bordeaux1.fr/fr/). Measurements of carbonate chemistry parameters are not routinely measured within the framework of the SOMLIT network.

Samples for dissolved inorganic carbon (TCARBN) and total alkalinity (ALKALI) were collected into acid washed 500 cm 3 borosilicate glass bottles and poisoned with 200 mm 3 of a 36 g.m 3 HgCl 2 , as recommended by Dickson et al. (2007). Samples were stored in the dark at 4 °C for 1–6 months before analysis. Measurements of TCARBN and ALKALI were performed simultaneously by potentiometric acid titration using a closed cell following the methods described by Edmond (1970) and Dickson and Goyet. (1994). Analyses were performed at the National facility for analysis of carbonate system parameters (SNAPO-CO 2 , LOCEAN, Sorbonne University – CNRS, France). Average accuracy of ALKALI and TCARBN analysis was 2.3 and 2.6 μmol.kg 1 , respectively, validated using Certified Reference Material (CRM) provided by A. Dickson’s laboratory (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego).
Dissolved oxygen (DOXY) has been measured by winkler titration with potentiometric endpoint detection.
