A job well done!

Posted on Aug 9, 2012

Research Associate Mike Doan and Bowdoin College intern Jessie Turner (aka Mud Maven) are welcomed home after completing pH surveys on 30 clamflats around Casco Bay.

 

The project entailed comparing the acidity of sediments where clamming was still active to those that had formerly supported clam harvesting. More often than not, it also entailed wading through spongy, sticky mud.

We look forward to sharing the results of this work when it becomes available.
