Calibrated pH (Total scale, SeaFET sensor) data was collected from Santa Barbara Harbor/Stearns Wharf in the Santa Barbara Channel (site ID: SBH) along with 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. Data have been interpolated to a 20 minute time interval for compatibility with other SBC LTER moored instrument data. Data coverage is 2012-09-15 to 2015-04-29.
