This dataset contains experimental and survey biogeochemical and microbial data from samples collected at the Moorea Coral Reef LTER site (French Polynesia). Goals of the study were to investigate how benthic primary producers directly affect seawater chemistry (DO and DOC) and to examine impacts of released DOC on reef bacterioplankton growth and respiration. Rates of photosynthesis, respiration, and DOC relsease were assessed for several benthic reef organisms (Haas et al. 2011).
