Calibrated pH (Total scale, SeaFET sensor) an disoolved oxygen (miniDOT)data were collected from Arroyo Quemado Reef in the Santa Barbara Channel (site ID: ARQ). pH data are accompanied by in situ temperature and associated carbonate chemistry parameters. The SeaFET instrument is located about 4 meters from the surface, with other moored instruments. Associated carbonate chemistry parameters were calculated with the CO2calc programs from USGS, and include: partial pressure and fugosity of CO2, concentrations of bicarbonate, carbonate and hyrdroxide ion, Omega (saturation state) of calcite and aragonite. Dissolved oxygen sensors (miniDOT, PME) were added in 2014, and are mounted near the ocean surface and near the seafloor, and also report temperature. All data have been interpolated to a 20 minute time interval for compatibility with other SBC LTER moored instrument data. Data coverage is 2012-07-30 to 2017-03-10.
