Short summary
We have reconstructed maps of air-sea CO2 fluxes at high resolution (4 km) in the offshore Benguela region using sea surface temperature and ocean colour data and CarbonTracker CO2 fluxes data at low resolution (110 km). The inferred representation of pCO2 improves the description provided by CarbonTracker, enhancing small-scale variability. We find that the resolution, as well as the inferred pCO2 data itself, is closer to in situ measurements of pCO2.
