Abstract
This dataset includes measurements of calcification, linear extension, and surface area for four species of Caribbean reef-building corals (Siderastrea siderea, Pseudodiploria strigosa, Porites astreoides, and Undaria tenuifolia) after a 93-day ocean acidification (280-3200 μatm) and warming (28°C and 31°C) experiment. Both calcification, measured using a buoyant weight method, and surface area, quantified using image processing software on photos taken of each fragment, were assess every 30 days throughout the experiment. Linear extension was quantified at the end of the experiment for total linear growth. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'. The most current version of this dataset is available at: https://www.bco-dmo.org/dataset/735583
