Why I put a pteropod in a CT scanner to study the impacts of ocean acidification

Why I put a pteropod in a CT scanner to study the impacts of ocean acidification

Tuesday, March 13th, 3pm EDT (12pm PDT)

During this webinar Rosie Oakes of the National Academy of Sciences of Drexel University discussed how she used a micro CT scanner to image pteropods in 3D to measure their shell thickness and volume. She will explain how she enlarges these 3D reconstructions to print them for educational purposes, and how you can do the same. Finally, she'll share her new research direction, using museum collections of pteropods to decipher how they have been affected by ocean acidification since the industrial revolution.
