pH Observatory

Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Zbigniew Kolber
Lead Scientists: Jim Barry, Francisco Chavez, Ken Johnson, Chris Scholin, Perter Zehr  

Kolber’s lab will be initiating a program to quantify the effects of increasing CO2 in the oceans. They plan to identify the key biological variables affected by pH, quantify their role in the oceanic energy and carbon cycles, design sensors to measure them in situ, and ultimately deploy a pH observatory as part of the National Science Foundation Ocean Observatory Initiative.
