Coral growth parameters and seawater chemistry from Kahekili, west Maui, Hawaii

April 25, 2017

This data release contains time-series of seawater carbonate chemistry variables, including salinity, dissolved inorganic nutrients, pH, total alkalinity, and dissolved inorganic carbon, from sites along Kahekili Beach Park, Kaanapali, west Maui. It also contains data from coral cores collected from the shallow reef at Kahekili in July 2013 and analyzed for coral growth parameters (tissue thickness, growth rate, density, calcification rate, and bioerosion) and geochemical measurements (nitrogen isotopes).
