Carbon sensor package

Securing the Package

On the WHOI dock, research assistant Katherine Hoering and MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Sophie Chu test a self-contained package of sensors that can fully characterize the CO2 system in seawater. Marine chemist Aleck Wang developed this instrument in collaboration with WHOI engineers for his lab’s research on ocean acidification and the carbon cycle. The instrument, which will be attached to a buoy, can measure and record transmit the pH level and total dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and transmit the data back to their lab in real-time.
