Seawater carbonate chemistry and coccolithophores and diatoms resilient to oceanalkalinity enhancement


Here, we investigatethe impacts of moderate (~700 μmol/kg) and high (~2700 μmol/kg) limestone-inspired alkalinity additionson two biogeochemically and ecologically important phytoplankton functional group representatives: Emilianiahuxleyi (calcium carbonate producer) and Chaetoceros sp. (silica producer). The growth rate and elemental ratiosof both taxa were estimated.

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Gattuso et al, 2024) was used to compute a complete and consistent set of carbonate system variables, as described by Nisumaa et al. (2010). In this dataset the original values were archived in addition with the recalculated parameters (see related PI). The date of carbonate chemistry calculation by seacarb is 2024-03-28.
