"Micro-pHAT: A re-envisioned sensor design for measuring seawater pH and Total Alkalinity in situ." The overall impact of the Anthropocene era on the oceans has several branches including over fishing, warming, deoxygenation, and acidification. One of the main sources of perturbation is increased emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere. The oceans play a key role in global carbon cycle and absorb and store a fraction of this excess CO2. (Gale Hoare, 2012). One of the greatest challenges in quantifying the oceanic component of the global carbon cycle is a lack of tools for making measurements on fine-large scales in both space and time. This research proposes to explore a new pathway for measuring the inorganic CO2 system in seawater that can easily be integrated on autonomous platforms for more broadscale observational needs. (Wolf-Gladrow et al. 2007). Zoom Meeting ID: 916 5866 2086, Passcode: GuilMS
