Abstract:
Galapagos Coral Stable Oxygen Calibration Data. Sites: Bartolome Island: 0 deg, 17'S, 90 deg 33' W. Champion Island: 1 deg, 15'S, 90 deg, 05' W. Urvina Bay (Isabela Island): 0 deg, 23'S, 91 deg, 14'W. Water depth: Bartolome - 3m; Champion - 10m; Urvina- 3m. Species: Bartolome - bart1, bart2, Pavona clavus; bart3, Pavona gigantea; bart4, Porites lobata. Champion - champ1, Pavona gigantea. Urvina Bay - ur1, ur2, ur3, Pavona clavus. Study conducted at three sites in Archipelago: del18Ocoral refers to del18O (PDB) of coral skeleton. del18O h2O refers to del18O (SMOW) seawater. sst refers to monthly sea surface temperatures averaged from hourly instrumental data from each site. salinity values represent monthly means averaged from hourly instrumental data from each site.
