CEOAS graduate student Stephanie Smith (right) and undergraduate Nikolai Danilchik deploying a newly constructed CO2 sensor last week in Netarts Bay seagrass beds. Lacking an appropriate mallet to drive the stakes fully into the tideflat, Nikolai (otherwise now known as caveman) utilized some driftwood found nearby. The Oregon Sea Grant funded project led by Drs. Waldbusser and Hales is exploring the relationships among seagrass, bivalves, and carbonate chemistry.
