Purpose
The goal of our new effort is to document current and future calcification
rates as seawater conditions continue to change due to sea surface warming and
ocean acidification.
Information to be Derived
Mass of calcium carbonate gained per unit time for coral Siderastrea siderea
and crustose coralline algal communities on nylon tiles.
Summary
Initial mass of n = 10 colonies of Siderastrea siderea
Notes
22 ft Whaler also used.
The stations will be used to monitor coral growth rates in the Florida Keys,
with sites stretching from Fowey Rocks in Biscayne National Park, south to
Dry Tortugas National Park.
