Short summary
pH in coastal waters can be highly variable. A means to measure this variation is needed. A fully autonomous submersible fluorescence-based pH monitoring device incorporating additional sensors for temperature and salinity was deployed in or adjacent to a shallow estuary for week-long intervals. Results and calculated aragonite/calcite saturation values are presented. The device is well suited to continuous flow-through or stand-alone measurements with a precision of at least 0.007 pH units.
