Abstract Calcifying organisms face increasing stress from the changing carbonate chemistry of an acidifying ocean, particularly bivalve larvae that live in upwelling regions of the world, such as the coastal and estuarine waters of Oregon (USA). Arguably the first and most significant developmental hurdle faced by larval oysters is formation

Humboldt Bay is now home to one of the most advanced ocean chemistry monitoring instruments in the world. On May 14, Oregon State University oceanographer Burke Hales joined California Sea Grant and Humboldt State University researchers to install his namesake invention, the “Burke-o-Lator,” at the Hog Island Oyster Company’s new
