What is CISME?

• The name stands for Community In Situ MEtabolism, and is pronounced ‘kiss-me’ to reflect the gentle interaction

between the instrument and the coral/substrate.

• A diver-portable respirometer developed to make non-destructive and non-invasive measurements of coral metabolic rates in situ under ambient conditions.

• CISME also works with algae and other low-relief benthic substrates.

• CISME measures changes in oxygen and pH during short incubations in which water flow and light levels are user controlled.

• Respiration (R) and photosynthesis (P) rates are calculated from concentration changes within the enclosed volume.

• These are the ‘vital signs’ of coral health assessment.

• R and P can be calculated both based on O2 and CO2 fluxes, from which RQs and PQs can be calculated.

• Sample loops provide water samples that can be titrated for total alkalinity to calculate calcification rate.

• The sample loop can also be used to experimentally introduce substances that might affect metabolism (e.g. acidified seawater for OA studies).
