To our knowledge, the FHL Ocean Observatory serves as the only multi-sensor array (~2 m from the surface) in the San Juan Islands archipelago that monitors for temperature, salinity, pH(total), carbon dioxide, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll concentration, turbidity, and current velocity. In addition to the suite of ocean properties listed above, we also monitor the microplanktonic community using a camera system called the Imaging FlowCytoBot (IFCB). The IFCB is an automated imaging flow cytometer that is designed for the continuous monitoring of phytoplankton and microzooplankton. Using a laser-triggered, high resolution camera, the IFCB generates images and optical data of individual plankton and other particles in the size range of >10-150 mm. Data produced by this project may be of interest to chemical and biological oceanographers, and climate scientists interested in the role of biogeochemistry in the global/regional climate system. This dataset includes pH, pCO2, temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen data recorded from 2018-2020. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
