Time-series data of bromocarbon compound concentrations - bromoform (CHBr3) and dibromomethane (CH2Br2) concentrations. These were collected at the Rothera Time-Series (RaTS) site, Marguerite Bay during the 2008-2009 field season.

|Lineage:||Sampling was carried out from a small RIB using a Niskin bottle hand
winched to depth. The air and water samples were analysed using a Markes Thermal Desorpiton Unit (TDU) and UltrA autosampler coupled to an Agilent gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). The simultaneous collection of air and
surface water data can be used to calculate the direction and rate of flux of the bromocarbons across the sea-to-air interface.
