    • Investigation of the carbonate chemistry of two tide pools on San Juan Island 

      Challener, Roberta; Guenther, Rebecca; Rickards, Karen; Gilmore, Rosaleen; Newcomb, Laura (2011)
      Open ocean observations have shown that increasing levels of anthropogenically-derived atmospheric CO2 are causing acidification of the world’s oceans. Yet little is known about coastal acidification and very few studies ...

    • A Tale of Two Tide Pools: Examining Carbonate Chemistry in the Intertidal 

      Rickards, Karen; Gilmore, Rosaleen; Challener, Laura; Guenther, Rebecca; Newcomb, Laura (2011)
      Characterization of physical conditions in tide pools is quite common in the scientific literature, but there is a marked paucity of information regarding the carbonate chemistry of these ecosystems; the majority of studies ...

    • THE TALE OF TWO TIDEPOOLS: EXAMINING CARBONATE CHEMISTRY IN THE INTERTIDAL 

      Guenther, Rebecca; Challener, Roberta; Gilmore, Rosaleen; Rickards, Karen; Newcomb, Laura (Friday Harbor Labs, 2011-07)
      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 ...

    • Temperature effects on byssal thread production in the mussel, Mytilus trossulus 

      Knowlen, Michelle; Blattenbauer, Angeline; Newcomb, Laura (Friday Harbor Labs, 2012-12)
      Mussels attach themselves to hard substrates by extruding thin, strong, and flexible hair- like attachments known as byssal threads, which are anchored in place with small adhesive plaques. While many studies have examined ...
    • Tidepools in Dead Man’s Cove show large fluctuations in carbonate chemistry during the low tide in comparison to Haro Stait water 

      Newcomb, Laura; Challener, Roberta; Gilmore, Rosaleen; Guenther, Rebecca; Rickards, Karen (2011)
      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 ...

    • Variation in Byssal Thread Production by Mytilus trossulus with Temperature 

      Blattenbauer, Angeline; Knowlen, Michelle; Newcomb, Laura (Friday Harbor Labs, 2012-12)
      Mussels attach to substrates by means of byssal threads. The amount of threads produced influences the strength of attachment. In this experiment, we looked at the effect of temperature on the number of byssal threads ...
    • Variations in Tide Pool Carbonate Chemistry and Temperature 

      Gilmore, Rosaleen; Challener, Roberta; Guenther, Rebecca; Newcomb, Laura; Rickards, Karen (2011)
      Tide pools are known to have extreme variations in both their temperature and carbonate chemistry while they are isolated from the surrounding waters. These extreme environments provide an interesting view into how ...
