Saving shellfish harvest by predicting ocean chemistry using Microsoft Azure

Scientists from the University of Washington were asked by the Washington state legislature to create predictions about ocean acidification for Pacific Northwest waters. Infant oysters were being killed in record numbers, and the cause appeared to be the change in water acidity that has been linked to global climate change. Parker MacCready, a physical oceanographer, led a team that is using Microsoft Azure to create the cloud-based storage system. MacCready will speak about this project at Ada's Technical Bookstore on July 27 from 7-8:30p.m. The event is free and is sponsored by Cascadia Climate Action.
