Research will be conducted on seagrass beds in Bodega Harbor and Tomales Bay, while expanding to include greater geographic context and a comparison of natural vs. restored beds. Through the addition of two recently restored seagrass bed sites (Elkhorn Slough and Newport Back Bay), the hope is to ascertain the differences between restored vs. natural seagrass ecosystems.

The objective of this project is to quantify seagrass effects on estuarine acidification in natural and restored seagrass beds across California, and to assess where seagrass restoration and conservation can be applied to ameliorate local ocean acidification.
