1. Physical oceanographic data from Eulerian measurements at the SIB site (data in Fig. 3 of the paper)
2. Biogeochemical data from Eulerian measurements at the SIB site (data in Fig. 4 of the paper)
3. Metabolic rate data (NCC, NCP) from Lagrangian and Eulerian methods along with associated environmental and ecological conditions (data in Figs. 2, 5, and 6 of the paper).

This data was collected as part of "Observations and Modeling of C System Dynamics at Palmyra Atoll: In Support of the Development of Management Strategies for Ocean Acidification Impacts in the Tropics", a proposal by Robert Dunbar (Stanford University) and Jennifer Smith (Scripps Insitution of Oceanography) funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The goal of this project was to better understand the carbonate chemistry and community metabolism of a relatively undisturbed, isolated Pacific coral reef in order to better understand and anticipate how coral reef ecosystem function may change with ocean acidification.
