NCCOS National Status and Trends Special Study: Assessing Land Based Sources of Pollution in Tinian, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, from 2013-08-27 to 2013-08-30

Metadata Updated: November 15, 2023

This tabular dataset is the result of field sampling of coral tissues (Pocillopora damicornis) and subsequent laboratory chemical analysis for pollutant levels. The pollutants analyzed included trace elements (Al, Ar, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Mn, Hg, Ni, Se, Ag, Sn, Zn), PAHs, PCBs, pesticides (chlordanes, DDT, HCH), and organotins. For a complete description of the field and laboratory techniques see Whitall et al. 2016. Keywords: Coral Reefs; Pollution; Metals; PCBs; PAHs; Pesticides; Mariana Islands; Tinian

Lineage Coral samples were collected using standard NOAA National Status and Trends (NS&T) Program protocols. Briefly, samples were collected by SCUBA divers using steel clippers. Coral samples were frozen (-15°C) at the CNMI DEP or the CNMI Division of Fish and Wildlife labs in Saipan and were kept frozen during shipment to the contract laboratories in Texas (contaminants Laboratory analyses were conducted following the protocols of the National Status and Trends Program. For a complete description of the methods see Whitall et al. 2016.
