Shoals Ecology: Seabirds, Seals, and Seaweed
Friday, 09/02/2016 (All day)

Friday - Sunday, September 2 - 4. The best of everything Shoals has to offer! An adult program geared towards science exploration in three subject areas: ornithology, marine mammals, and the ocean ecosystem as a whole. This is the perfect program for adults who have never been to the Isles of Shoals, and for those who want to return to their island ecology roots!

 

Ornithology
Learn about the seabirds of the Isles of Shoals, including nesting terns and two species of gulls. The Appledore Island Migration Banding Station will be open for those of you interested in migrating songbirds and bird banding.

 

Marine Mammals
Dive into the depths of marine mammal science...acoustics, photo-identification, behavior, and more! The Duck Island seal colony (harbor seals and gray seals) is just 1 nautical mile north of Appledore Island. Learn about ongoing research conducted by Shoals Marine Lab scientists to study this population of seals. Early September is also whale watching season in New England, with opportunities to travel aboard SML's research vessels in search of minke whales, fin whales, and humpback whales!

 

Ocean Ecology
Explore the full range of ocean ecosystem topics - from tide pool seaweeds, to planktonic life in the world's oceans. You will have the opportunity to see and use specialized oceanographic equipment and help deploy it from SML's research vessels.

Big Tree New Measuring Guidelines
Tuesday, 09/06/2016 (09:15 AM - 04:30 AM)

People like big trees, and big tree competitions have been alive and well in America since the 1920s and a mainstay program of American Forests since 1940. However, accurately measuring large irregularly shaped trees has never been easy. There is surprising room for significant error even in basic measurements like trunk circumference. In 2013, American Forests accepted the challenge to upgrade measurement methods and establish an expert national tree-measuring force called the National Cadre. Since then an 86-page measuring guide has been produced and new techniques continue to be developed. This workshop is meant to present some history of tree measuring, the primary techniques used by the cadre, and a discussion of where errors are made and how to analyze and minimize them. The morning will be inside and a number of methods will be demonstrated in an afternoon field session. Come prepared for the field. Participants are invited to bring any height-measuring instruments, such as laser rangefinders and clinometers to the afternoon field session. (Bringing equipment is optional).
