Hofmann lab contributes to study of global ocean pH dynamics
Hofmann et al. (2011) PLoS ONE paper about SeaFET data makes it into the media
The SeaFET and SeapHOx pH sensors developed by Prof. Todd Martz at Scripps Institute of Oceanography have been a critical part of Hofmann lab research for the last three years. They have been deployed by Hofmann lab researchers in various coastal locations locally and globally, and are now being incorporated into the Santa Barbara Coastal LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) project. Prof. Hofmann has been instrumental in promoting their use in coordination with ocean acidification field studies, and she is lead author on a new study that brings together data from reseearchers who have deployed these sensors at their own study sites around the world. The Consortium for Ocean Leadership has a write up about the paper, and the paper is freely available online via open access.
