Alliance for Coastal Technology (ACT) demonstration projects are designed to characterize performance of relatively new and promising instruments for applications in coastal science, coastal resource management and ocean observing. ACT has evaluated four commercial pCO2 instruments that are capable of being moored for weeks to months. This document is termed a “Demonstration Statement” and provides a summary of the results for the Contros HydroC™ /CO2. Briefly, test instruments were mounted on surface moorings in a temperate stratified estuary (Twanoh Buoy, Hood Canal Washington; August-September 2009; http://orca.ocean.washington.edu/mooringDesign.html;) and a coral reef (Kaneohe Bay Hawaii; October-November 2009; http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/co2/coastal/HI/). The sites were chosen based on existing moorings and the expected rapid changes in seawater temperature and pCO2. Water samples were collected to determine pH and Total Alkalinity (TA) for calculation of pCO2 (CO2Sys; Pi.....
