Complete chemistry dataset. Freshly collected seawater was incubated with two separate chemically dispersed oils (2–3 mg/L) at two different temperatures (13 °C and 5 °C). The change in concentration is shown on the y-axis as a percent of the initial concentration. The y-axis to the right identifies the treatment that each row illustrates. The treatments containing Grane oil are shown in the top two rows, with Grane 13 representing the mesocosms incubated at 13 °C and Grane 5 representing the mesocosms incubated at 5 °C. The treatments containing Troll oil are shown in the bottom two rows and follow the same labeling scheme. The experiment was conducted for 64 days and each column represents a different time point. Target compounds are shown in the legend and are represented as assorted colors. All time points were not analyzed for each treatment, which created gaps in the dataset and an opportunity to utilize predictive models
