Data are pH (total scale, SeaFET), salinity, conductivity, temperature, depth (Seabird 37 CTD) and Oxygen (MicroCAT C-T-ODO) from instruments moored at three sites along the north shores of the northern Santa Barbara Channel Islands, California, USA. At Anacapa Island (ALC), in a marine reserve with kelp forest habitat; at Santa Cruz Island (PRZ), surrounded by a large shallow eelgrass bed (Zostera pacifica); and at San Miguel Island (SMN), in open water over a sandy bottom. pH sensors were deployed at all three sites in 2012, with CTD and Oxyten senosrs added to moorings at ALC and PRZ in May 2013. Benchmark samples for SeaFET sensors calibration were collected 1 to 8 times during each 2 - 3 month deployment via SCUBA, free diving or from a pier with a GO-FLOW (General Oceanics) bottle (see methods). Oxygen data were validated by Winkler titations, with concentrations reported in various units and as saturation.

Data are presented in: Kapsenberg, L. and G. E. Hofmann 2016. Ocean pH time-series and drivers of variability along the northern Channel Islands, California, USA. Limnology and Oceanography. 61: 953-968. DOI: 101002/lno.10264.
