ABSTRACT :

This presentation will give examples on how multi-parameter platforms have been used in a variety of applications ranging from shallow coastal on-line observatories down to measuring at full ocean depth. Focus will be on projects in which optode technology (primarily for CO2 and O2) has been combined with other sensors to study different aspects of the carbon system including primary production/consumption, air-sea exchange, leakage detection from underwater storage of CO2 and measurements from moving platforms like gliders and ferries. The performance of recently developed pH optodes will also be discussed.
