The hydrogen-ion activity is indicative of a solution's acidity or alkalinity, which is expressed as pH. The right pH electrode must be selected carefully in line with the measured medium as it will be directly in contact with it.

As such, the NOC has a heavy requirement for seawater analysis. However, in addition to analytical work at the NOC's facilities in Southampton and Liverpool, the organisation's researchers also need to be able to analyse samples on board a variety of research vessels.
