Ocean properties vary on a number of time-scales and it is necessary to obtain high quality, high resolution (both spatial and temporal) biogeochemical measurements in order to tease out human from naturally-induced changes. In this regard, biogeochemical ocean time-series represent one of the most valuable tools scientists have to characterise and quantify ocean carbon fluxes and biogeochemical processes and their links to changing climate. In recent years, the importance of biogeochemical time-series has been underscored in light of issues of global, regional and local climatic and societal relevance. Ship-based biogeochemical monitoring is critical to understand ocean changes, but these are costly and therefore have limited temporal resolution. Ocean technology has leapt to the aid of scientists by providing them with cost-effective tools that can take measurements of essential biogeochemical variables autonomously, i.e. sensors on autonomous platforms. These autonomous measurements.....
