This dataset contains data collected from three sites on the eastern side of St Martin, Caribbean. A sheltered site (Galion Bay), exposed site (Orient Bay) and a site with strong unidirectional flow currents (Islets de L’embouchure). Monitoring of diurnal pH, waves, vegetation cover, light and temperature were conducted at each site. Additionally, an experiment was conducted at the unidirectional flow site to investigate the influence of water residence time and vegetation on diurnal pH fluctuations. Detailed information can be found in the published paper.
