Short summary
We rigorously tested emerging methods for measuring the rate of photosynthesis in the ocean using autonomous robotic platforms. We found similar accuracy to traditional, labor-intensive, ship-based measurements across a variety of ocean conditions. Photosynthesis is the basis of nearly all life, both on land and in the ocean. Our results suggest that by scaling up existing technologies, we can greatly improve global monitoring of one of life's key processes.
