The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String Cultures:\u00a0Pleurochrysis\u00a0carterae\u00a0cultures were maintained in
exponential growth phase under axenic conditions in semi-continuous batch
culture using L1-Si media prepared on 0.2 um-filtered, UV-sterilized,
autoclaved seawater.\u00a0 Cultures were acclimated to one of
three\u00a0pCO2\u00a0treatments for > 9 generations before experiments were
performed.\u00a0 Cultures were maintained in an incubator at 16.5 +/- 0.5
degrees C and 470 umol photons/m-2/s\u00a0PAR on a 14-10 light-dark cycle.

pCO2\u00a0Treatments: Carbonate chemistry was manipulated by bubbling cultures
and prepared media with 500 mL/min\u00a0with 0.2 um-filtered 280, 380, or 750
ppm\u00a0pCO2\u00a0air.\u00a0 The\u00a0pCO2\u00a0levels of the treatment air
were established using two mass flow controllers (Aalborg, Orangeburg, NY,
USA) for each treatment to precisely mix in-house compressed air and pure
CO2\u00a0(Maine Oxy, Auburn, ME, USA).\u00a0 The in-house compressed air was
stripped of CO2\u00a0to less than 10 ppm CO2\u00a0using a Puregas VCD
CO2\u00a0Adsorber (Puregas, LLC, Broomfield, CO, USA).\u00a0
The\u00a0pCO2\u00a0of the gas mixtures was stable to +/- 8
ppm.\u00a0\u00a0pCO2\u00a0values of the cultures may be different than the
target levels due to biological activity.

Growth rate measurements:\u00a0 At the same time each day, the cell density of
each\u00a0pCO2\u00a0treatment culture was measured in order to calculate the
growth rate.\u00a0 The data analyzed represent three consecutive growth

Cell density:\u00a0Culture density was measured using a Moxi Z mini automated
cell counter (ORFLO Technologies, Ketchum, ID, USA), which has a coefficient
of variation of 4%.

Ocean acidification is one of the most pressing marine science issues of our time, with potential biological impacts spanning all marine phyla and potential societal impacts affecting man's relationship to the sea. Rising levels of atmospheric pCO2 are increasing the acidity of the world oceans. It is generally held that average surface ocean pH has already declined by 0.1 pH units relative to the pre-industrial level (Orr et al., 2005), and is projected to decrease 0.3 to 0.46 units by the end of this century, depending on CO2 emission scenarios (Caldeira and Wickett, 2005). The overall goal of this research is to parameterize how changes in pCO2 levels could alter the biological and alkalinity pumps of the world ocean. Specifically, the direct and indirect effects of ocean acidification will be examined within a simple, controlled predator/prey system containing a single prey phytoplankton species (the coccolithophore, Emiliania huxleyi) and a single predator (the oceanic metazoan grazer, Calanus finmarchicus). The experiments are designed to elucidate both direct effects (i.e. effects of ocean acidification on the individual organisms only) and interactive effects (i.e. effects on the combined predator/prey system). Interactive experiments with phytoplankton prey and zooplankton predator are a critical starting point for predicting the overall impact of ocean acidification in marine ecosystems. To meet these goals, a state-of-the-art facility will be constructed with growth chambers that are calibrated and have highly-controlled pH and alkalinity levels. The strength of this approach lies in meticulous calibration and redundant measurements that will be made to ensure that conditions within the chambers are well described and tightly monitored for DIC levels. Growth and calcification rates in coccolithophores and the developmental rates, morphological and behavioral effects on copepods will be measured. The PIC and POC in the algae and the excreted fecal pellets will be monitored for changes in the PIC/POC ratio, a key parameter for modeling feedback mechanisms for rising pCO2 levels. In addition, 14C experiments are planned to measure calcification rates in coccolithophores and dissolution rates as a result of grazing. These key experiments will verify closure in the mass balance of PIC, allowing the determination of actual dissolution rates of PIC within the guts of copepod grazers.
