The world's oceans are an important sink for increasing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Since the middle of the 18th century, the world's oceans have absorbed about 41% of anthropogenic CO2. As CO2 forms carbonic acid in water, CO2 absorption also has an effect on seawater pH. This decrease in seawater pH - of about 0.1pH units so far - is also known as ocean acidification and it amounts to an increase in acid concentration of approximately 30%. In order to track corresponding changes in the carbonate system there is a need for innovative sensors.
