This dataset contains area-normalized calcification (mg cm-2 d-1) and biomass normalized calcification (mg mg-1) for Pocillopora meandrina, massive Porites spp., Acropora pulchra and Millepora platyphylla, as a function of pCO2 (408 µatm versus 913 µatm) and temperature (28.0°C and 30.1°C), collected and measured in Moorea in 2011. These data were published in Brown & Edmunds (2016) Marine Biology, Fig. 1. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Coral calcification : insights from inorganic experiments and coral responses to environmental variables Holcomb, Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)Coral calcification is examined using a laboratory model and living corals. In the laboratory model, abiogenic aragonite formed at high saturation state (Ω>~20) had a granular appearance and was enriched in trace elements, ...

Community production modulates coral reef pH and the sensitivity of ecosystem calcification to ocean acidification DeCarlo, Thomas M.; Cohen, Anne L.; Wong, George T. F.; Shiah, Fuh-Kwo; Lentz, Steven J.; Davis, Kristen A.; Shamberger, Kathryn E. F.; Lohmann, George P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-01-31)Coral reefs are built of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) produced biogenically by a diversity of calcifying plants, animals, and microbes. As the ocean warms and acidifies, there is mounting concern that declining calcification ...
