    Camden Conference Zoom Talk: A Year in the Ice- Insights into the changing Arctic Ocean from the MOSAiC Expedition, by Madison Smith

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Maddie Smith

    The MOSAiC expedition was the result of decades of planning and collaboration by 20 nations to freeze a research ship into the ice of the Arctic Ocean for an entire year – the largest polar expedition in history. The ship served as a platform to observe all components of the Arctic sea ice and climate system with the aim of better understanding the changing Arctic. As a member of a team of sea ice scientists during the summer leg of the expedition, Smith collected data to understand how sea ice is melting in the new Arctic. Throughout the summer, the team watched as the ice evolved from thick and snow-covered to thin and speckled with melt ponds. The data and observations will be used to improve model projections and provide insight into future changes. During this talk, Smith will share stories of what it was like to be a part of the largest polar expedition, and provide a window into our first results on characteristics of Arctic sea ice now.

    Dr. Maddie Smith is a postdoctoral scholar at the Polar Science Center at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. Motivated by the loss of sea ice in a rapidly changing climate, her research uses observations and modeling approaches to understand how sea ice interacts with the ocean. Her fieldwork has taken her to the oceans at both ends of the earth, and most recently she was a participant in the summer leg of the year-long MOSAiC expedition. Maddie completed her PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington exploring the role of surface waves and turbulence in the autumn Arctic Ocean. She received her B.A. in Earth & Oceanographic Studies and Environmental Science from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, where she first dreamed of exploring the Arctic while learning about the transpolar drift of Fridtjof Nansen.

    So, you think you know Maine? Think again!

    It’s not just the woods, waters, forests, fields, mountains, shores, cities and towns, lobsters and lighthouses that define Maine.

    From Kittery to Fort Kent, from Calais to Camden, from Rangeley to Roque Bluffs, and from Bethel to Bucksport, Maine is home to natural wonders, quirky characters, remarkable inventors, historical firsts, ghosts, legends, landmarks, fairs, festivals, culinary icons all born in the triumph of an unquestionably indomitable spirit nurtured over two centuries since becoming a state in 1820.

    Join author Earl Brechlin as he shares some of his favorites from more than 300 people, places, things and events that have made Maine what it is today.

    Zoom Author Talk by Laurie Apgar Chandler- Maine Woods and Waters: A Solo Journey to Maine’s New National Monument

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Laurie Apgar Chandler

    When life took a dramatic turn over a decade ago, it was a moment of awakening for Laurie Apgar Chandler of Bremen. In 2015, at age 53, she became the first woman to solo thru-paddle the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a story chronicled in her inspirational debut memoir, Upwards. Laurie discovered she loved the author life. Soon, she was dreaming of writing about another expedition.

    Maine’s Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument was two years young when Laurie embarked on a unique journey. After trekking the monument’s panoramic peaks on the International Appalachian Trail, she traded her hiking boots for a solo canoe. Taking the long way round, Laurie followed age-old waterways into the upper watershed of the Penobscot River’s East Branch, then descended its wild waters and quiet byways, through the heart of the monument. Hers is a story of shared discovery, highlighting the region’s ancient geology, rich history, and natural wonders.

    For many years, Laurie has been grateful to call Maine home, treasuring the small moments spent snowshoeing, swimming, or discovering new wildflowers as much as her continuing grand adventures. A former research forester, Laurie currently works in middle school special education. Learn more or purchase her books at http://www.laurieachandler.com.

    Maine History Zoom Talk: Commemorating Maine Statehood: What did we Learn from the Bicentennial?-A talk by Liam Riordan

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Liam Riordan

    This illustrated presentation and discussion explores the statehood process in Maine that culminated in 1820 with formal separation from Massachusetts. That struggle engaged a range of challenging public issues that are still recognizable today. Commemorating statehood can help us to better understand: the explosive place of slavery vis-a-vis the Maine-Missouri Crisis, the uncertain location of the international border and regional diversity, sharp partisan conflict and the “two Maines”, Wabanaki sovereignty and more.

    Liam Riordan is an early American historian specializing in the Revolutionary era (ca. 1760-1830), and has been a faculty member at UMaine since 1997. He has done considerable Public History work to commemorate the bicentennial of the state of Maine and organized a public scholarly conference on the statehood era and its legacy in 2019.

    To sign-up for a Zoom link for this event, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov no later than 4 PM  on the day of the event.
