National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Calcification data derived from coral core measurements for Cheeca Rocks and Little Conch Reef in the Florida Keys between 2003 and 2011 (NCEI Accession 0177876)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This archive package contains long-term calcification data from coral cores extracted from Cheeca Rocks and Little Conch Reef in the Florida Keys as part of the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program’s (CRCP’s) National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). Corals annually form bands within their skeletons that manifest as high-density lines perpendicular to their growth axes. By precisely measuring the spacing and density of these bands, scientists can obtain a record of linear extension and skeletal density, respectively. Linear extension and skeletal density are, in turn, used to calculate annual calcification. Cores are collected by diver, underwater, using a pneumatic drill rig. Once removed, the small (~5 cm diameter) lesions are plugged with epoxy, and the resulting cores are analyzed using computed tomography (CT). Coral core data included herein were collected at long-term monitoring sites by the Acidification Calcification and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team (ACCRETE), based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML).
