U/Ca ratios for oyster culture management (Oregon Sea Grant funded)

This project seeks to develop a pH (CO32-) proxy using uranium and calcium ratios (U/Ca) in oyster shells and to determine best practices for shell plantings to minimize the impact of acidity on growing oysters. This research is lead by PIs Alyssa Shiel, George Waldbusser, and Adam Kent and Ph.D. student Sophia Wensman.
