Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String We measured larval abundance, chlorophyll-a, temperature, and salinity from
four depths at one location in Fidalgo Bay, WA, by boat each day from July 11
to July 14, 2017. Each day, we completed eleven sampling events. During each
sampling event, we collected samples from four depths in the water column:
surface (0.5 m below surface), bottom (0.5 m above seafloor), and two mid-
depth samples, which evenly split the depth between surface and bottom
samples. We planned each sampling event to begin at specific times relative to
the predicted low tide with the goal of collecting approximately equal numbers
of samples during ebb and flood tide.

To collect each larval sample, we used a modified bilge pump to filter
100-liters of water from our targeted depths through a 102-\u00b5m mesh
plankton net to ensure retention of Olympia oyster larvae. Each sample was
stored on ice while in the field and then preserved in 70% ethanol. At the end
of filtering each 100-L sample, we collected 60-ml of bulk seawater from the
pump for measurement of chlorophyll-a. We filtered the 60-ml of seawater
through a glass microfiber filter (WhatmanTM GF/F). The foil-wrapped filters
were held on ice in the field and then stored them at -80\u00b0C for later
extraction. We measured chlorophyll-a concentration from each filtered sample
by extracting the chlorophyll-a pigment using 90% acetone for 24 hours in the
dark at -20\u00b0C and then reading fluorescence of each sample with a Turner
Trilogy Fluorometer (Parsons et al. 1984; Welschmeyer 1994). We also
programmed a Hach Environmental Company HydroLab DS5 water quality multiprobe
instrument to collect temperature and salinity measurements at the same times
and depths as our pump sampling. A Hach Hydras 3 Pocket instrument enabled us
to calibrate, program, and retrieve data from the HydroLab.

This dataset includes unprocessed data and simple data calculations
accomplished with R (Version 3.3.2).

We programmed a Nortek 1MHz Aquadopp acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP)
to record velocity measurements in 0.3 meter vertical bins every 60 seconds.
We then attached the ADCP instrument with sensors facing skyward to steel
cross-bar frame and deployed it on the seafloor in Fidalgo Bay\u2019s main
channel for four days. We utilized Nortek AS software AquaPro version 1.27 to
program and retrieve current velocity data from the Aquadopp instrument. This
dataset includes these raw unprocessed data.

attribute NC_GLOBAL project String Climate stressors on larvae
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String Climate stressors on larvae
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String In the face of climate change, future distribution of animals will depend not only on whether they adjust to new conditions in their current habitat, but also on whether a species can spread to suitable locations in a changing habitat landscape. In the ocean, where most species have tiny drifting larval stages, dispersal between habitats is impacted by more than just ocean currents alone; the swimming behavior of larvae, the flow environment the larvae encounter, and the length of time the larvae spend in the water column all interact to impact the distance and direction of larval dispersal. The effects of climate change, especially ocean acidification, are already evident in shellfish species along the Pacific coast, where hatchery managers have noticed shellfish cultures with 'lazy larvae syndrome.' Under conditions of increased acidification, these 'lazy larvae' simply stop swimming; yet, larval swimming behavior is rarely incorporated into studies of ocean acidification. Furthermore, how ocean warming interacts with the effects of acidification on larvae and their swimming behaviors remains unexplored; indeed, warming could reverse 'lazy larvae syndrome.' This project uses a combination of manipulative laboratory experiments, computer modeling, and a real case study to examine whether the impacts of ocean warming and acidification on individual larvae may affect the distribution and restoration of populations of native oysters in the Salish Sea. The project will tightly couple research with undergraduate education at Western Washington University, a primarily undergraduate university, by employing student researchers, incorporating materials into undergraduate courses, and pairing marine science student interns with art student interns to develop art projects aimed at communicating the effects of climate change to public audiences
As studies of the effects of climate stress in the marine environment progress, impacts on individual-level performance must be placed in a larger ecological context. While future climate-induced circulation changes certainly will affect larval dispersal, the effects of climate-change stressors on individual larval traits alone may have equally important impacts, significantly altering larval transport and, ultimately, species distribution. This study will experimentally examine the relationship between combined climate stressors (warming and acidification) on planktonic larval duration, morphology, and swimming behavior; create models to generate testable hypotheses about the effects of these factors on larval dispersal that can be applied across systems; and, finally, use a bio-physically coupled larval transport model to examine whether climate-impacted larvae may affect the distribution and restoration of populations of native oysters in the Salish Sea.
