New insights into global geochemical cycles can be realized through use of in situ nutrient sensors. Although a number of technological advances have been made, there remain challenges to synoptic, long-term nutrient sensing in marine systems. Resources must be expended to address critical sensor development needs that include reductions in size, cost, power consumption, reagent use, and waste generation, and increases in long-term reliability.
