• Uncertainty propagation added to four public software packages that make CO2 system calculations

• New type of diagram helps to assess how propagated uncertainty changes with different input uncertainties

• Uncertainties from the constants often dominate propagated uncertainty, so that measurement uncertainty plays little role

• Relative uncertainties are larger for CaCO3 saturation states than for CO32- because of uncertainties in solubility products
