Monitoring of the ocean response to climatic and anthropogenic forcing is critical to understanding the impacts on the global carbon cycle and its ecosystems’ responses. Fundamental changes in the oceans’ biogeochemical cycles, driven largely in response to increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations, are already underway. Increasing evidence of large-scale ocean acidification and resultant deoxygenation has emphasized the need to understand the impacts on biogeochemistry and ecosystem dynamics.

A large number of Sea-Bird instruments/equipment are suitable for integration with biogeochemical sensors:
