Study Aims:

To determine the impact of elevated CO2 and temperature on acid-base regulation, metabolism and calcification in Greenland clams Serripes groenlandicus

EXPERIMENT UPDATES:

04 May 2009: Unfortunately so far the divers have had no luck finding Serripes. They are limited to two ice holes and these are not in good places to find these animals. Like many of the other studies we are waiting for the fjord to become ice free so that the boat can be launched so that we can get over to the other side of the fjord to the collection sites.
