    About This Project

    A new geochemical "tracking" technology is in development which allows inference of fish migration patterns from their scales. In order for this technique to be effective, the elemental variability in fish scales must be quantified. I aim to accomplish this by using spectral imaging techniques (x-ray analysis used in tandem with electron microscopy) on Atlantic tarpon scales.
