attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String Calcifying cnidarians were collected from the back reef (~ 4 m depth) on the
north shore of Moorea, French Polynesia, during January and April 2011.
Fragments of Acropora pulchra, Pocillopora meandrina, massive Porites spp.
(15% P. lobata and 85% P. lutea [Edmunds 2009]), and Millepora platyphylla
were used to evaluate the effect of pCO2 and temperature on calcification.
Massive Porites spp. and M. platyphylla were sampled using a pneumatic drill
(McMaster-Carr, part #27755A17) fitted with a 4.1 cm diamond tip hole saw
(McMaster-Carr, part #6930A43). The hole saw was used to remove cores ~ 4 cm
diameter and ~ 3.8 cm long from adult colonies, and the holes were filled with
non-toxic modeling clay (Van Aken Part #10117). To increase the likelihood
that cores were genetically distinct, one core was taken from each colony,
with sampled colonies distributed over 3 km of reef.

Freshly collected cores were placed in bags filled with seawater and
transported to the Richard B. Gump South Pacific Research Station where they
were immersed in tanks supplied with a constant flow of seawater from
Cook\u2019s Bay. Cores were prepared by removing excess skeleton extending >
1.5 cm below the living tissue, and attaching the cores to numbered polyvinyl
chloride (PVC) pipes (4.4 cm diameter and 2.0 cm long) with epoxy (Z Spar,
#A788). To eliminate the possibility of fouling organisms accessing freshly
cut skeleton, bare skeleton was covered in epoxy. A plastic screw was epoxied
to the bottom of each core that was later used to attach them upright in racks
placed in the tanks used for incubations. Following preparation, cores were
returned to ~ 4 m depth in the back reef, where they were left to recover for
6 weeks. Recovery was evaluated from the presence of healthy c 124 oral tissue
covering the formerly damaged edge of the skeleton.

Single branches of A. pulchra and P. meandrina were cut from colonies using
bone shears, with each colony sampled once. Sampled colonies were ~ 10 m apart
to increase the likelihood that they were genetically distinct. Branches were
transported to the Richard B. Gump South Pacific Research Station where they
were immersed in flowing seawater. Similar to the methods used for coral
cores, branches of A. pulchra and P. meandrina were attached using epoxy to
pieces of PVC pipe to make nubbins (Birkeland 1976). Care was taken to cover
freshly fractured skeleton with epoxy, and to avoid damaging coral tissue
during preparation. A plastic screw was attached to the base of the nubbins
and used to hold them upright in plastic racks. Prior to beginning the
treatments, coral cores and nubbins were placed in 150 L tanks under ambient
conditions of 28.0\u00b0C, 370 micro-atm pCO2 and where illuminated with 400 W
metal halide lamps (True 10,000K Hamilton Technology, Gardena, CA to an
irradiance of ~ 600 micro-mol quanta m2 s-1 (measured with a 4p LI-193 quantum
sensor and a LiCor LI-1400 meter) for 5 d to recover from the preparation
procedure. The sampling method limited tissue damage to A. pulchra and P.
meandrina, and therefore a shorter acclimation period was needed in comparison
to massive Porites spp. and M. platyphylla.

Experimental conditions and maintenance

Treatments were created in 8 tanks (Aqua Logic, San Diego), each holding 150 L
of seawater and regulated independently for temperature, light, and pCO2.
Tanks were operated as closed146 circuit systems with filtered seawater (50
micro-m) from Cook\u2019s Bay, with circulation provided by a pump (Rio 8HF,
2,082 L h-1). Light was supplied 147 by 400 W metal halide lamps (True 10,000K
Hamilton Technology, Gardena, CA) at ~ 560 micro-mol quanta m-2s-1 (measured
with a 4p LI-193 quantum sensor and a LiCor LI-1400 meter) in the range of
photosynthetically active radiation (PAR, 400-700 nm). Lights were operated on
a 12hr light-12hr dark photoperiod, beginning at 06:00 hrs and ending at 18:00
hrs. Temperatures were maintained at 28.0\u00b0C, which corresponded to the
ambient seawater temperature in the back reef when the study was conducted,
and 30.1\u00b0C which is close to the maximum temperature in this habitat
(Putnam and Edmunds 2011). pCO2 treatments contrasted ambient conditions (~
408 micro-atm) and 913 micro-atm pCO2, with the elevated value expected to
occur within 100 y under the \"stabilization without overshoot\"
representative concentration pathway (RCP 6.0) (van Vuuren et al. 2011). pCO2
treatments were created by bubbling ambient air or a mixture of ambient air
and pure CO2 that was blended continually and monitored using an infrared gas
analyzer (IRGA model S151, Qubit Systems). A solenoid-controlled, gas
regulation system (Model A352, Qubit Systems, Ontario, Canada) regulated the
flow of CO2 and air, with pCO2 logged on a PC running LabPro software (Vemier
Software and Technology). Ambient air and the elevated pCO2 mixture were
supplied at ~ 10-15 L min-1 to treatment tanks using pumps (Gast pump
DOA-P704-AA, see Edmunds 2011).

The temperatures and pCO2 levels created four treatments with two tanks
treatment-1: ambient temperature-ambient pCO2 (AT-ACO2), ambient temperature-
high pCO2 (AT-HCO2), high temperature-ambient pCO2 (HT-ACO2) and high
temperature-high pCO2 (HT-HCO2). Treatment conditions were monitored daily,
with temperature measured at 08:00, 12:00 and 18:00 hrs using a digital
thermometer (Fisher Scientific model #150778, \u00b1 0.05 \u00b0C), and light
intensities at 12:00 hrs using a Li-Cor LI-193 sensor attached t 170 o a
LI-1400 meter. Seawater within each tank was replaced at 200 ml/min with
filtered seawater (50 micro-m) pumped from Cook\u2019s Bay.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_description String The LI-193 Underwater Spherical Quantum Sensor uses a Silicon Photodiode and glass filters encased in a waterproof housing to measure PAR (in the 400 to 700 nm waveband) in aquatic environments. Typical output is in micromol s-1 m-2. The LI-193 Sensor gives an added dimension to underwater PAR measurements as it measures photon flux from all directions. This measurement is referred to as Photosynthetic Photon Flux Fluence Rate (PPFFR) or Quantum Scalar Irradiance. This is important, for example, when studying phytoplankton, which utilize radiation from all directions for photosynthesis. LI-COR began producing Spherical Quantum Sensors in 1979; serial numbers for the LI-193 begin with SPQA-XXXXX (licor.com).

attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String While coral reefs have undergone unprecedented changes in community structure in the past 50 y, they now may be exposed to their gravest threat since the Triassic. This threat is increasing atmospheric CO2, which equilibrates with seawater and causes ocean acidification (OA). In the marine environment, the resulting decline in carbonate saturation state (Omega) makes it energetically less feasible for calcifying taxa to mineralize; this is a major concern for coral reefs. It is possible that the scleractinian architects of reefs will cease to exist as a mineralized taxon within a century, and that calcifying algae will be severely impaired. While there is a rush to understand these effects and make recommendations leading to their mitigation, these efforts are influenced strongly by the notion that the impacts of pCO2 (which causes Omega to change) on calcifying taxa, and the mechanisms that drive them, are well-known. The investigators believe that many of the key processes of mineralization on reefs that are potentially affected by OA are only poorly known and that current knowledge is inadequate to support the scaling of OA effects to the community level. It is vital to measure organismal-scale calcification of key taxa, elucidate the mechanistic bases of these responses, evaluate community scale calcification, and finally, to conduct focused experiments to describe the functional relationships between these scales of mineralization.
This project is a 4-y effort focused on the effects of Ocean Acidification (OA) on coral reefs at multiple spatial and functional scales. The project focuses on the corals, calcified algae, and coral reefs of Moorea, French Polynesia, establishes baseline community-wide calcification data for the detection of OA effects on a decadal-scale, and builds on the research context and climate change focus of the Moorea Coral Reef LTER.
This project is a hypothesis-driven approach to compare the effects of OA on reef taxa and coral reefs in Moorea. The PIs will utilize microcosms to address the impacts and mechanisms of OA on biological processes, as well as the ecological processes shaping community structure. Additionally, studies of reef-wide metabolism will be used to evaluate the impacts of OA on intact reef ecosystems, to provide a context within which the experimental investigations can be scaled to the real world, and critically, to provide a much needed reference against which future changes can be gauged.
