This archival package contains the carbon chemistry measurements of a laboratory experiment study to understand the effects of ocean acidification on winter flounders. To address the goals of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OA), the James J. Howard Laboratory constructed an OA experimental system to conduct OA experiments on commercially important species native to Atlantic waters of the NE U.S. The species of interest exhibit a broad range of ecological and life-history types from entirely marine to entirely estuarine. In order to conduct OA experiments on several different species, the required experimental system was able to mimic both estuarine and oceanic conditions. This system was designed to produce 5 pCO2 concentrations above an ambient pCO2 treatment and 5 temperature regimes. The system is also capable of manipulating dissolved oxygen, salinity, and other biogeochemicals common to a benthic habitat. The analytical laboratory conducts analysis according to the guidelines developed by the ocean acidification subcommittee of the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Program. When followed correctly, these guidelines should produce data with a high degree of accuracy and precision.

  • Parameter or Variable: Dissolved Inorganic Carbon; Abbreviation: DIC; Unit: umol/kg; Observation type: Dissolved inorganic carbon; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: Manipulation condition; Measured or calculated: Measured; Sampling instrument: manual; Analyzing instrument: Carbon Coulometer (UIC, Inc.); Detailed sampling and analyzing information: Column samples were collected by hand using a tube attached to the bypass at the base of each CO2 addition column. Experimental container samples were extracted and transfered to sample bottles using a 60 mL syringe. All samples were collected in a 300mL glass BOD bottle by filling from the bottom of the bottle. A 25mL sample was extracted with a syringe, weighed, and the added to 8.5% phosphoric acid in an acid stripping chamber. The empty syringe was reweighed to get sample weight. Sample CO2 was transferred to the coulometer using a CO2 free gas. Coulometer had been modified with an emulator chip to give output in counts.; Replicate information: no field replicates collected; Standardization description: Three calcium carbonate standards were created and analyzed to produce a standard curve. A CRM was also analyzed at the beginning and end of a daily sample analysis. The standard curve was used to determine the measured value for the first CRM. The % difference between the measured CRM value and its true value was used to adjust the sample values calculated from the coulometer output and the standard curve. The difference in the measured value for the second CRM compared to its true value was used to determine measurement uncertainty.; Standardization frequency: Daily; CRM manufacturer: Dickson Lab at UCSD; Poison name: Saturated solution of mercuric chloride; Poison volume: 0.06mL; Method reference: SOP 2 in Dickson, A.G., Sabine, C.L. and Christian, J.R.

The spectrophotometer was then used to determine absorbances at wavelengths of 434, 578, and 730 for a sample without and then with 2mM m-cresol purple dye added. The absorbance values were used to determine pH according to the citation given below; Replicate information: no field replicates; Standardization description: A tris buffer obtained from the Dickson lab at UCSD was analyzed to check the functioning of the instrument and quality of the dye solution; Standardization frequency: start of experiment; Temperature of standardization: 25 C; Temperature correction method: NA; At what temperature was pH reported: provided in data file; Method reference: SOP 6b in Dickson, A.G., Sabine, C.L. and Christian, J.R.
