This presentation will include the ice age history of the Ammonoosuc River basin and what it reveals about climate change and the environment in which the first paleo-indians settled.  Many local sites of interest will be included in the talk. 

 

The second event on the same subject is a field trip on Friday, July 25, from 9AM to 2PM The trip will start at the Weeks State Park main entrance at 9AM and requires carpooling to various geological sites in the area, starting with a stop at the summit of Mt. Prospect of Weeks State Park.  Participants will explore under the guidance of expert leaders the surface geology and glacial features of Weeks State Park and the nearby White Mountain region. This trip will be conducted rain or shine and will conclude by 2PM Bring lunch, snacks and water.  Please dress for short, easy walks.  If you have questions please call 788-4961.

 

The presentation team of six people for the two events includes Woody Thompson, Dyk Eusden, Dick Boisvert, Wally Bothner, Thom Davis and Dave Govatski.  All except Govatski are co-authors of the book upon which this program is based.  Thompson is a geologist with Maine Geological Survey. Eusden lives in Randolph, NH and is professor of geology at Bates College, Lewiston, Maine.  Boisvert is State Archeologist for the State of NH.  Bothner is professor of geology at the Univ of NH.  Davis is affiliate research faculty at Plymouth State University.   Govatski is a retired forester with the USDA Forest Service and worked on the White Mountain National Forest.

Scientist for a Day on Great Bay Cruise
(08:30 AM - 02:30 PM)

- Saturday, July 26, 2014

- Thursday, August 7, 2014

- Tuesday, August 12, 2014

 

Join fellow explorers on an activity-based cruise from Portsmouth up the Piscataqua River into the Great Bay Estuary and to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory. You are likely to get your hands wet as you learn about marine and estuarine ecosystems on this informal, educational cruise. You'll be invited to tow for plankton and marvel at its movement in a magnifying scope; capture water from below the surface and test its characteristics; observe, handle, and hear about plants and animals from the unique habitats of the estuary; deploy an otter trawl; and find out what scientists study about The Great Bay.

 

The Great Bay Estuary system adds approximately 150 miles to New Hampshire's relatively small coastline. Those 150 miles include everything from industrial, historical, and military landmarks to a wildlife refuge and National Estuarine Research Reserve. There will be opportunities to learn more about these landmarks and share what you know. There is also plenty of time on-board to just enjoy the fresh air, sights, and sounds of the estuary with your on-board companions as we scan for bald eagles, osprey, and harbor seals.

 

You will cruise aboard the 50 foot UNH Research Vessel, Gulf Challenger, under the guidance of the enthusiastic and knowledgeable UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docents, a New Hampshire Sea Grant water resources educator, and the crew of the Gulf Challenger. Time aboard the boat is approximately 5 hours including about a half-hour visit to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory.

 

To ensure your comfort on the cruise, plan to dress for variable weather and to be exposed to the elements much of the time, although there is some space down below for use as needed. We cruise rain or shine! Bring a brown-bag lunch to eat while we make our way up the River or during our stop at Jackson Estuarine Lab. There are toilet facilities at the UNH Pier facility, on the Gulf Challenger, and at Jackson Lab. Some walking is required, mostly embarking and disembarking and can include steep ramps and floating docks. Comfortable, sturdy shoes are recommended. Seating is very limited, except on deck surfaces. The cruises are best experienced with an attitude for adventure and learning, sure to ignite your curiosity and provide an unforgettable experience! Open to members of the public on a first come, first served basis. Children 10 years of age and older are welcome on the cruises when escorted at all times by an adult. Cruises depart from the UNH pier, which is next to the U.S. Coast Guard Station at Fort Point in New Castle.
