ABSTRACT

An autonomous in-situ Raman/SERS sensor for the detection of chemicals in seawater has been constructed and successfully tested in the harbor and offshore under harsh field conditions, during October - January 2012-2013. Applying integration time of typically only 10 s, the sensor was able to detect various PAHs in situ, such as fuoranthene, biphenyl, phenanthrene and fluorine in the Mediterranean Sea.
