We are working with colleagues at Stanford University (G. De Leo, F. Micheli, S. Litvin) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Reseaerch Institute (MBARI, J. Barry, C. Boch) to understand how abalone populations will respond to combined stressors of hypoxia and ocean acidification using an integrated approach (hydrodynamic modeling, exposure experiments, population models) to quantify changes in exposure due to climate change across two sites in the California Current (Isla Natividad, BCS and Monterey Bay, CA). This work is funded by the NSF Ocean Acidification Program. Photo Credit: C. Boch.
