Prouty, N.G., Yates, K.K., Smiley, N.A., and Gallagher, C., 2017, Coral growth parameters and seawater chemistry, Kahekili, west Maui: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Time-series of seawater carbonate chemistry variables, including salinity, dissolved inorganic nutrients, pH, total alkalinity, and dissolved inorganic carbon from sites along Kahekili Beach Park, west Maui near submarine groundwater seeps and living coral reefs. Samples for seawater were collected by pumping bottom water from the seafloor using a peristaltic pump and collecting discrete water samples every 4-hrs over a 6-day period.

These samples were collected and analyzed to characterize the diurnal variability in water carbonate chemistry and determine exposure to extremely low pH and high nutrient conditions linked to contaminated submarine groundwater discharge.
