Seawater carbonate chemistry and coral physiology in 22-month mesocosm experiment


This dataset includes physiological parameters of three Hawaiian coral species (Porites compressa, Porites lobata, and Montipora capitata) over 22-month mesocosm experiment. The corals were exposed to one of four treatments: control, ocean acidification, ocean warming, or combined future ocean conditions.

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Gattuso et al, 2022) was used to compute a complete and consistent set of carbonate system variables, as described by Nisumaa et al. (2010). In this dataset the original values were archived in addition with the recalculated parameters (see related PI). The date of carbonate chemistry calculation by seacarb is 2023-10-17.
