Description

The PMEL carbon group is working with researchers at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) to better understand carbon dioxide variability on the Bermuda Pedestal. The benthic marine ecosystem of Bermuda is highly dominated by calcifying organisms including, for example, corals, coralline and calcifying algae, foraminifera, echinoderms, barnacles, bryozoans and many others that may be sensitive to ocean acidification. MAPCO2TM systems are deployed on buoys at Hog Reef (32.46°N, 64.83°W)(and at Crescent Reef (32.40°N, 64.79°W) on the Bermuda Pedestal).
