Ocean gliders have clearly become nowadays useful autonomous platforms addressed to measure a wide range of seawater parameters in a more sustainable and efficient way. This new ocean monitoring approach has implied the need to develop smaller, faster and more efficient sensors without reducing key features like accuracy, resolution, time-response, among others, in order to fit the glider operational capabilities. This work is aiming to present the latest development stages of a new spectrophotometric pH sensor, its integration process into a Wave Glider SV3 platform and the preliminary results derived from an offshore mission performed in subtropical waters between the Canary Islands and Cape Verde archipelagos.
