Dr. Zhaohui Aleck Wang - Dept. of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Abstract

The marine CO2 system plays a critical role in the global carbon cycle and ocean carbon biogeochemistry, thus regulating the Earth climate. Development and deployment of in situ sensors hold an important key to improve our observing capability of studying the marine carbon cycle, which is widely accepted as a research priority in marine sciences. This seminar will present the latest development of in situ sensing technologies for primary marine CO2 parameters (i.e., dissolved inorganic carbon or DIC, pH, alkalinity, and partial pressure of CO2 or pCO2), and showcase how new technologies may be able to help to advance cutting-edge science in ocean carbon biogeochemistry.
