Development and Application of the Carbonate Measurement System to Monitor Ocean pH and Alkalinity

Nand, Vikashni


Anthropogenic carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is taken up by the oceans. The most profound change has been the decline in ocean pH as it is likely to impact calcifying marine organisms.. In chapter 2, a method utilising purified Bromophenol Blue (BPB) as an indicator to make simple one-point alkalinity measurements via spectrophotometric detection was developed. Our purified BPB dye was characterised over a range of temperatures and salinities and using the absorbance ratio (R (t) =...[Show more]
