When infant oysters began dying off in record numbers, reportedly due to the increased acidification of Pacific Northwest waters, the Washington State Legislature asked the UW Dept of Oceanography’s scientists for help. Parker MacCready, PhD, a physical oceanographer and led a team that used quantities of data to forecast the chemistry of ocean waters entering shellfish growing areas, such as Padilla Bay.
