This map was developed by researchers at Oregon State University and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) to visualize Chesapeake Bay shellfish production and areas hypothesized to be stressful to shellfish, analyzed by applying calcification responses of adult Eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) to a high-resolution model, based on the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS), with 0.5 km2 spatial resolution and 3-hour temporal frequency between 1985-2020.
The purpose of this map is to identify where environmental conditions may have impacted shellfish aquaculture and restoration in Chesapeake Bay.
