Abstract:

This project is directed toward the deployment and testing of highly capable suites of chemical sensors in the upper ocean. The overarching goal of this project is a demonstration of the efficacy of SEAS-II sensors for real-time observations of critically important macronutrients, micronutrients and CO2 system variables in seawater. As a second-generation chemical sensor, SEAS-II will explore paths toward improved analytical sensitivity, rates of analysis and reliability.
