Supplementary data:


As ocean acidification (OA) sensor technology develops and improves, in situ
deployment of such sensors is becoming more widespread. However, the scientific
value of these data depends on the development and application of best practices
for calibration, validation, and quality assurance as well as on further development
and optimization of the measurement technologies themselves. Here, we summarize
the results of a 2-day workshop on OA sensor best practices held in February
2018, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, drawing on the collective experience and
perspectives of the participants. The workshop on in situ Sensors for OA Research was
organized around three basic questions: 1) What are the factors limiting the precision,
accuracy and reliability of sensor data? 2) What can we do to facilitate the quality
assurance/quality control (QA/QC) process and optimize the utility of these data? and
3) What sort of data or metadata are needed for these data to be most useful to future
users? A synthesis of the discussion of these questions among workshop participants
and conclusions drawn is presented in this paper.
