Carbonate chemistry measured during two experiments that tested calcification rates of Acropora pulchra under approximated ambient and elevated temperature and pCO2 levels.  The experiments took place between July to October of 2015 at the Richard B Gump Research Station, Moorea, French Polynesia. 

The following two calcification rate datasets took place while these carbonate chemistry measurements were being taken:

Acropora pulchra calcification experiment 1
Acropora pulchra calcification experiment 2
