Evaluation of coral reef carbonate production models at a global scale

  title={Evaluation of coral reef carbonate production models at a global scale},
  author={Nina S. Jones and Andy Ridgwell and Erica J. Hendy},
Calcification by coral reef communities is estimated to account for half of all carbonate produced in shallow water environments and more than 25 % of the total carbonate buried in marine sediments globally. Production of calcium carbonate by coral reefs is therefore an important component of the global carbon cycle; it is also threatened by future global warming and other global change pressures. Numerical models of reefal carbonate production are needed for understanding how carbonate… CONTINUE READING
