PEACHESEA - Ocean Acidification Analysis
The Ocean Acidification Analysis service (PEACHESEA) is aimed at companies, particularly those in the aquaculture sector, as well as to researchers and other national or international institutions interested in monitoring acidification conditions in natural waters, with special focus on marine waters.
Both the methodology and the precision and accuracy of the determinations made by this service have been validated in international intercomparison exercises organized by the reference laboratory for this type of analyses, the Marine Physical Laboratory (Scripps Institution of Oceanography – University of California, San Diego), which is the institution that manufactures and distributes certified calibration standards globally.
The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP) has also validated the precision and accuracy levels obtained by the team that manages the service through numerous national and international campaigns.
Objectives & Tasks
It has been conceived with the aim of offering observation of ocean acidification as a comprehensive service. Thus, in addition to analytical services, it offers comprehensive environmental observation services, ranging from consultancy and deployment and management of observation equipment to laboratory experiments in controlled environments.
