ABSI Science Update
The start of 2021 has proven busy for the ABSI research team! They are continuing their monthly sampling of oyster sites for oyster condition and disease, and have received preliminary water quality data from one of the YSI data loggers deployed at the mouth of the Apalachicola River. ABSI has also been joined by new faculty member, Dr. Josh Breithaupt whose efforts have been focused on collecting subtidal and intertidal sediment samples to begin identifying locations for measurements of bottom-water corrosivity and shell residence times. He is also in the process of acquiring instruments to measure carbon and nutrient levels throughout the Bay.  For a further look into ABSI science, visit here.
