Changes in the Gulf of Maine ecosystem
Camden — Mid-Coast Audubon and the Camden Library cosponsor Changes in the Gulf of Maine Ecosystem Across Months, Years, and Decades Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Camden Public Library, 55 Main St.
The presenter is Nick Record, a Maine native working at Bigelow Laboratory who defines himself as a "computational ocean ecologist." He models the interaction between physics, microbes and fisheries in the Gulf of Maine. He is one of those rare birds equally comfortable in the field and doing math behind the computer. His work has focused on forecasting patterns of zooplankton, fish, and whale behavior as a function of climate change in the Gulf of Maine and elsewhere. He has also spent a good bit of time working on the seabird colonies in Maine (and elsewhere), and is an avid birder. For more information on Nick see bigelow.org/research/srs1/nick-record/ The program is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed.
Mid-Coast Audubon is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to promote long term responsible use of natural resources through an informed membership, education and community awareness. Every third Thursday of the month, MCAS sponsors an evening program at the Camden Public Library. For more information visit midcoastaudubon.org.
