4:28 PM | From Sea and Sky: Hacking the Chesapeake with #BayBots

2:00 PM | Black Gold?
President Abraham Lincoln, February 1865. He looks tired. The following was published in the Biddeford-Saco Journal Tribune Sunday edition, 4/26/2015. One hundred and fifty years ago this month, the Civil War staggered to a bloody and exhausted end. Our nation lay in ruins: our national psyche fractured, half our economy and infrastructure reduced to ashes, 750,000 battlefield casualties (1 in 10 white men in America of military age lay dead). Why did we fight those four long years, at […]

10:23 AM | The awkward state of penguin molting
This oddly plumaged penguin appeared in my Antarctic & Arctic Data Consortium 2015 calendar (yes, I have a data calendar) and I needed to know…why on earth does this penguin have a fauxhawk? And of course there is no better day to answer this question than on World Penguin Day! Before this, I used to think there […]

Crisis averted. But why do knuckles make that popping sound when you crack them? If questions like this keep you up at night… […]

2:19 AM | What happens when we punch a hole in the seafloor?
A longtime submariner I know tells the story of a most unusual dive. On this particular plunge, they went down into the briny deep to place what can best be described as a giant manhole cover on the seafloor. There was a hole, and, by all accounts, the sea was draining in to it. For more […]
