Chemistry of Coral Reefs

  1. Apr 29, 2003 #1
    I am wondering if anyone can give me some information on the chemistry of coral reef habitats particularly those in the south pacific. In general I am looking for information concerning temperature, salinity ranges as well as pH and local dissolved gasses and their corresponding abundance.

    Just spotted this topic! I'm doing a PhD modeling carbonate platforms, and I would recommend looking up papers by Buddemier (sp?), Keyplass and Chappell. These should be starting points for you research. Unfortunately, I'm using the Bahamas as a test bed, not the Pacific, so I can't give you any specific details.
