Short summary
We report the most comprehensive data set of surface seawater pCO2 and air-sea CO2 fluxes in the East China Sea (ECS) based on 24 surveys conducted in 2006-2011. We categorized the ECS into five different domains characterized by different physics and biogeochemistry to better characterize the seasonality of the pCO2 dynamics and to better constrain the CO2 flux. The annual average CO2 influx into the entire ECS shelf was 6.9+/-4.0 mmol m-2 d-1, about twice the global average in an ocean margin.
