This page will feature a growing collection of resources intended to support the Oceans of Possibilities summer library reading theme. Both existing and forthcoming resources are listed here to help our library partners plan summer programming.
Gulf of Maine, Explained
This series of brief videos (< 5 minutes) presents nuggets of scientific information about the Gulf of Maine in easily digestible format. These are a great resource to add to your web site or as the kick off for a Family Science Night at the library. Stay tuned for the second installment of season 2 coming later this summer!
Community Science Investigations
Our community science program, the Ecosystem Investigation Network, features an investigation that your patrons can do at the ocean that will contribute to scientific work relevant to the Gulf of Maine. It focuses on documenting coastal flooding resulting from sea level rise. Stay tuned for an event later in July where you can learn more about this and other community science investigations!
If you preordered a poster and recipe cards they will be arriving at your library in a few weeks. If not, please feel free to print your own (links coming soon)! You can find a more abundant list of recipes and some great seafood cooking tips below!
Gulf of Maine Warming
GMRI releases an annual report about the status of ocean warming in the Gulf of Maine. Our most recent report shows that 2021 was the hottest year on record. We designed this ArcGIS StoryMap to showcase these data rich findings in an easily digestible way that works across multiple device types (computer, tablet, phone) to support a range of programming.
