Short summary
The Papagayo upwelling system is a natural laboratory for studying ecosystems' response to ocean acidification (OA). We measured pH and pCO2 in situ with high temporal resolution and compared them with data available from upwelling season. Local coral reefs are exposed to acidic and undersaturated waters in upwelling and non-upwelling events. These restrictive conditions occur alongside local stressors, potentially decreasing reefs' resilience and increasing their vulnerability under future OA.
