I am an amateur Oceanographer seeking to develop data gathering techniques for water quality, bathymetry, etc. from a solar powered kayak platform. I will need to gather data and store it for distribution and sharing. I can couple all data with a GPS reference in a PC Platform. Would the Auduino series be a good starting point to expect future development on? It looks very capable and convertible.

Arduino would be great for this.
I would suggest that you start with either Atmospheric Monitoring with Arduino or Environmental Monitoring with Arduino. Both are short and inexpensive.
If you enjoy those, and decide Arduino is for you, I'd suggest picking up some of our other Arduino books.
