Isotopic characterization of carbon in the dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) pool is fundamental for a wide array of scientific studies directly related to gas hydrate research. In order to generate integrated and internally consistent data of delta (super 13) C of DIC in pore waters from Hydrate Ridge, we used the modern continuous flow technology of a GasBench II automated sampler interfaced to a gas source stable isotope mass spectrometer for the rapid determination ( approximately 80 samples/day) of delta (super 13) C DIC in small-volume water samples. The overall precision of this technique is conservatively estimated to be better than + or -0.15% (1 sigma ), which is similar to the precision of methods in current use. Here we present the data generated from Ocean Drilling Program Leg 204 pore water samples.
