Aragonite Saturation State in Deep Sea Coral Habitats collected from Nancy Foster in Gulf of Mexico from 2017-08-14 to 2017-08-30 (NCEI Accession 0209115)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The dataset contains 17 depth profiles from 20-1000 m depth on the West Florida Shelf. Parameters include aragonite saturation state, total alkalinity, DIC, temperature and salinity. The data were collected using a CTD rosette aboard a NOAA-led research expedition in August 2017 entitled ‘Southeast Deep Coral Initiative: Exploring Deep-Sea Corals Ecosystems of the Southeast US’. The NOAA-led survey explored deep-sea coral habitat along West Florida shelf, using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Odysseus aboard NOAA ship Nancy Foster. The cruise report for the expedition is hosted online here: https://doi.org/10.7289/V5/TM-NOS-NCCOS-244 (Wagner et al 2018).

Purpose These data were collected to support the study of Lophelia pertusa coral reefs, which are considered essential fish habitat in the Gulf of Mexico. Deep water corals are sensitive to carbonate chemistry. The data provided here can serve as a baseline for August 2017 to understand how aragonite saturation state is changing over the short and long term.

Processing Steps
  • Parameter or Variable: TEMPERATURE - BOTTOM WATER [WATER TEMPERATURE] (measured); Units: degrees C; Observation Category: in situ; Sampling Instrument: CTD.
  • Parameter or Variable: SALINITY (measured); Units: psu; Observation Category: in situ; Sampling Instrument: CTD.
  • Parameter or Variable: tCO2 [DISSOLVED INORGANIC CARBON (DIC)] (measured); Units: umol/kg; Observation Category: laboratory analysis; Sampling Instrument: Coulometer for DIC measurement; Sampling and Analyzing Method: The lab used a closed cell acidification module and procedure to convert all dissolved TCO2 in the sample to CO2 gas which was then analyzed in a UIC coulometer. This measurement is independent of temperature..
  • Parameter or Variable: total alkalinity (measured); Units: umol/kg; Observation Category: laboratory analysis; Sampling Instrument: Coulometer for DIC measurement.
  • Parameter or Variable: ARAGONITE SATURATION STATE (calculated); Units: omega argonite; Observation Category: model output; Sampling Instrument: CO2calc; Sampling and Analyzing Method: The following constants were used in all omega aragonite calculations in CO2calc: K1, K2 from Mehrbach et al. 1973 as refit by Dickson and Millero 1987; KHSO4 from Dickson 1990, and air-sea flux from Wanninkhof 1992..
