Site visit to coral calcification monitoring stations to measure coral and algal 
calcification rates. Coral drilling to obtain samples for Sr/Ca temperature 
proxy work.
Information to be Derived
Mass of calcium carbonate gained per unit time for coral Siderastrea siderea and 
crustose coralline algal communities on nylon tiles. Hourly temperature data for 
past 6 months. Coral growth rates from coral cores extending back approximately 
100 years. Sr/Ca-derived sea surface temperature estimates using coral cores 
extending back approximately 100 years.
Measured buoyant mass of n = 10 colonies of Siderastrea siderea, and dry mass of 
crustose coralline algae gained on n = 10 tiles. Maintenance of station. Coral 
coring of at least 3 coral heads.
