THE TALE OF TWO TIDEPOOLS: EXAMINING CARBONATE CHEMISTRY IN THE INTERTIDAL
Tidepools are a prominent feature of the intertidal zone, housing a great diversity of both macroalgae and mobile animal components. Tidepool organisms are exposed to wide variations in temperature, salinity, and pH over the course of the low tide. As of yet, very few studies have quantified the changes in carbonate chemistry ...
Sources of Error in Carbonate Chemistry: What happens when Biology and Chemistry meet?
Two different experimental systems were used to evaluate sources of error in carbonate chemistry measurements at Friday Harbor Labs, WA. One system, set up in Laboratory 6, examined the effects of different filters and a UV sterilizer. The second system explored the carbon input from feeding live versus dead algae in the ...
Tidepools in Dead Man’s Cove show large fluctuations in carbonate chemistry during the low tide in comparison to Haro Stait water
During the low tide, tidepools are under different physio-chemical conditions than the coastal waters. This includes the carbonate chemistry, which is especially pertinent to study due to the threat of ocean acidification on carbonate chemistry. We examined the fluctuation in DIC, total alkalinity, pH, temperature, dissolved ...
