National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity and other parameters collected from surface discrete measurements at coral reef sites in the Florida Keys, Florida Bay, U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas, and the Caribbean Sea from 2017-01-05 to 2017-12-03 (NCEI Accession 0162411)

This archival package contains carbonate chemistry data collected at both random locations and existing long-term sites in the Florida Keys, Florida Bay, USVI, St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas as part of the NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). These data are collected and analyzed to assess spatial and temporal variation in the seawater carbonate systems of coral reef ecosystems and include two types of sampling methods. The first method is collected by hand at the surface, either from the boat or by SCUBA divers. The second method uses subsurface autosamplers where water samples provided in this dataset were collected at a depth of 15m. Samples are either collected singularly or as part of a diurnal set. The samples are processed by the Atlantic Oceanographic Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) where they are analyzed for total alkalinity (TA) and dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC). Using the analyzed TA and DIC, alongside temperature, salinity and depth data, AOML staff calculated other important carbonate chemistry system parameters such as pH, pCO2, and aragonite saturation and reported the results in this dataset.
