Comments P.126 left column 2nd paragraph: "The net CO2 flux into the oceans is determined at 0.975 x 10^14 mol CO2/yr (primary source Etcheto and Merlivat, 1988), while other literature data range from 0.74 x 10^14 mol CO2/yr (cited by primary source Merlivat et al., 1991) to 1.75 x 10^14 mol CO2/yr [primary source Quay et al., 1992 (Fig. 4 A and Tab. 3 B)]."
