Brown Bag Lunch: Get More Out of Your Food has been rescheduled to February 28th. With rising food costs and the importance of minimizing waste, getting more from your food is increasingly critical. Bring your lunch and join us to learn and discuss strategies for wasting less and getting more from your food this Wednesday at 12 in the Crow's Nest. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

East 101-103 Abstract: The MODE Group, Deep Sea Research, 25 (10): 859-910, (1978) The Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment (MODE-1) was designed to investigate mid-ocean mesoscale eddies. An intensive and extensive program of measurements in three spatial dimensions and time was undertaken in an area southwest of Bermuda from March through mid-July 1973. Principal components of the experiment were an array of moored current meters and temperature-pressure recorders, hydrographic stations, drifting neutrally buoyant floats at 1500 m tracked by SOFAR, and acoustic and electromagnetic profilers. During MODE-1 a smaller scale survey relying on ship-tracked neutrally buoyant floats, a conductivity-temperature (CTD) survey, and a moored current meter array, MINIMODE, was carried out. The experiment was preceded by MODE-0, consisting of measurements by a series of moored current meters and other instruments in the general area selected for MODE-1. MODE-1 observations were generally within a 300-km radius circle centered at 26N, 69 40W, with a greater concentration of observations in the interior of the circle. The region covers varied topography, with a flat abyssal plain sloping upward to the continental rise in the western half and rough topography in the eastern half. Descriptive, dynamical, numerical results of the experiment are presented. It is concluded that mid-ocean eddies are part of an energetic and structured variability field superimposed on the weaker gyre-scale mean circulation. In the western North Atlantic there is a band of eddy variability of around 100-day period and 70-km scale in which currents are horizontally nearly isotropic; vertical scales are of the order of the depth. The experiment provided conclusive evidence of the existence of mid-ocean eddies and serves as the basis for future experiments, such as POLYMODE, to extend our knowledge of these systems.

East 101-103 Abstract: The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance was formed by a group of small independent fishermen in 1991. Day boat fishermen were concerned their livelihoods were at stake with threats of fish depletion and fishing regulations that did not align with what they were encountering on the water. For the last 30 years, the Fishermen's Alliance has stood shoulder to shoulder with local fishermen to meet the emerging challenges that fishermen face, and to empower local fishermen to create solutions that work for them. The fishing industry has faced many challenges: a warming ocean, changing fish distribution, industrial fishing interests, high permit costs, outdated science and a constant state of change in terms of state and federal regulations. By engaging with the fishing industry, and utilizing their time on the water, and knowledge of the ocean environment, we can develop a better understanding of our changing ocean. The more we learn, the better choices we can make about how to manage and support our fisheries and make effective policy decisions. This presentation will highlight the work we do to support a healthy ocean environment, community engagement, economic development, fishermen driven science, and advocacy for improved marine policies and management that ensure the viability and future of Cape Cod's fisheries and fishing communities.
