Summary of conditions in the eight tanks assigned randomly to create four treatments of ambient or high temperature and ambient or high CO2. These tanks were used to examine the responses of four species of calcifying coral to temperature and CO2 concentration. The experiments took place in Moorea, French Polynesia in January and April, 2011. These data were published in Brown & Edmunds (2016) Marine Biology, Table 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 biomineralization, climate proxies and the sensitivity of coral reefs to CO2-driven climate change DeCarlo, Thomas M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2017-02)Scleractinian corals extract calcium (Ca2+) and carbonate (CO2−3) ions from seawater to construct their calcium carbonate (CaCO3) skeletons. Key to the coral biomineralization process is the active elevation of the CO2−3 ...
