National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity, pH and other variables collected from surface discrete measurements using Coulometer, alkalinity titrator and other instruments from Jarvis Island in the Pacific Remote Island Areas from 2016-05-16 to 2016-05-23 (NCEI Accession 0175229)

This archival package contains the the National Coral Reef Monitoring Program carbonate chemistry data from Jarvis Island in the Pacific Remote Island Areas in 2016. This project monitors changes to coral reef carbonate chemistry over time, at US affiliated coral reef sites, through quantifying key chemical parameters that are expected to be impacted by ocean acidification. This effort addresses OAP programmatic themes 1 and 5 by maintaining the coral reef portion of the OA monitoring network and developing a procedure for data synthesis, assimilation, and distribution. Incorporating an interdisciplinary approach, this project will collect, process, analyze, and steward dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and total alkalinity (TA) water sample data to document seawater carbonate chemistry at Class 0, II, III climate monitoring sites in coral reef areas of the US Atlantic and Pacific regions. The data are available in Excel and CSV formats.

Measurements drawn according to procedures in the Guide to best practices for ocean CO2 measurements (Dickson et al., 2007). Borosilicate bottle were rinsed and filled from bottom, leaving a minimal amount of headspace while making sure no bubbles were introduced. Then 0.2 ml of saturated HgCl2 solution was added, bottles were sealed with glass stoppers lightly covered with Apiezon-L grease, and were stored at room temperature to be sent to PMEL for analysis.; Replicate information: duplicate samples analyzed; Standardization description: Each coulometer was calibrated by injecting aliquots of pure CO2 (99.999%) by means of an 8-port valve (Wilke et al. 1993) outfitted with two calibrated sample loops of different sizes (~1 mL and ~2 mL). The instruments were each separately calibrated at the beginning of each cell with a minimum of two sets of these gas loop injections.; Standardization frequency: 1) Gas loops were run near the beginning of each cell; 2) CRM is supplied by Dr. A. Dickson of SIO, were also measured near the beginning; and 3) Duplicate samples were typically run throughout the life of the cell solution.; CRM manufacturer: Andrew Dickson's lab at Scripps Institute of Oceanography; Poison name: saturated Mercury Chloride (HgCl2); Poison volume: 200um; Poison correction: The DIC values were corrected for dilution by 0.2 ml of saturated HgCl2 used for sample preservation. The total water volume of the sample bottles was 540 ml. The correction factor used for dilution was 1.0003705.; Uncertainty: plus/minus 0.1%; Method reference: Dickson, A.G., Sabine, C.L. and Christian, J.R. (Eds.) 2007.
