Collaboration with new scholar and NOAA Ocean Acidification Program Show Potenital

This past month, NCCOS welcomed a new Hollings Scholar, Madison Uetrecht, who will study the effects of ocean acidification on oyster growth under Dr. Beth Turner over the summer months. They visited Mook Sea Farm, where Uetrecht will conduct out-planting experiments with juvenile oysters to assess whether shell growth and calcification changes during different field ocean acidification (OA) conditions.

Dr. Turner is the NOAA lead on a recently funded mini-grant from the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program for citizen science workshops through the Northeast Coastal Acidification Network. Monitoring guidance for coastal acidification developed by EPA will guide workshop participants in demonstrations and hands-on activities to monitor conditions in local estuaries.

Workshop participants will include a variety of citizen science groups, some affiliated with EPA’s National Estuary Programs and NOAA’s National Estuarine Research Reserves in Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Workshops are scheduled for August, September and October 2017.

For more information, contact Elizabeth.Turner@noaa.gov.
