Using living corals collected from Okinawan coral reefs, laboratory experiments were performed to investigate the relationship between coral calcification and aragonite saturation state (W) of seawater at 25∞C. Calcification rate of a massive coral Porites lutea cultured in a beaker showed a linear increase with increasing W aragonite values (1.08-7.77) of seawater. The increasing trend of calcification rate (c) for W is expressed as an equation, c = aW + b (a, b: constants). When W was largerdoi:10.2343/geochemj.38.613 fatcat:eamfi4ixwnhxfa7cgcbhyovtnq
