|2396||Lead in taps from public water sources|
This story map provides a brief presentation and discussion of the water quality data collected from 43 taps on the COA campus during 2022. While 28 elements were included in the test, the report focuses mainly on lead levels from various campus taps.
|2395||Reduction of Arsenic in Groundwater by Filtration Systems|
32 private wells in Mount Desert Island were used for this study to analyze the effectiveness of different water treatment systems.
|2391||Multi-Use Paths on Mount Desert Island|
Nynke's project included conversations with community members and leaders, fieldwork to find abandoned paths, designs of multi-use paths, and map-making in GIS. This project flowed out of an earlier class focused on Active Transportation (Bicycle and Pedestrian) in Bar Harbor in the Spring of 2022. However, this project is not supposed to be about me; I am far from a neutral player that collected information to revitalize Active Transportation advocacy on MDI. [show more]

A 2020 leaf-off aerial image with 45cm resolution. From Maine GIS.
|2380||From Lake to Sea: Winter Habitations of Common Loons|
The Common Loon (Gavia immer) has historically been used as an indicator species during it's summer breeding season. More specifically, loons have been used as an indicator for heavy metals, biocontamination, and acidity (Canadian Lakes Loon Survey).
|2362||Beaver Dam Failure on Mount Desert Island|
Terrain analysis-based risk assessment of beaver-modified wetlands for dam failure during intense precipitation events.
|2282||MDI Intertidal Species Relation with Sediment Types|
Intertidal species set themselves on sediment types based on feeding patterns and protection coverage from predators.
|2280||Finding the Birds of Mount Desert Island|
The goal of this project was to identify birding hotspots on Mount Desert Island. To do this, I used data from eBird to determine which birds are most common in each sector. The sectors are areas used by birders during the annual Christmas Bird Count . Birding hotspots are areas that birders go to frequently

|2143||Coastal Marine Life History of Mount Desert Island 1903-2021|
Mount Desert Island, located off the east coast of Maine, is completely surrounded by intertidal environments. Throughout the 1900s, data was collected and recorded in notebooks regarding intertidal life by numerous researchers, followed by entry into a spreadsheet by Michael Hays, a citizen scientist who worked with the MDIBL (Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory). In present day, these data can be put into a map thanks to ArcGIS Pro. These data includes large amounts of information regarding marine life around the coastal environments of MDI, such as species common and Latin names, locations observed (where on the island along with Lat. and Long.), observation year, along with some brief notes about each observation.

|2142||Rockweed in Frenchman Bay|
Rockweed is a brown algae found on rocky shores. The most common types of rockweed are within the genus Ascophyllum spp. and Fucus spp. (the latter is shown to the left). They grow slowly and can live from 3 to 15 years before breakage. Rockweeds have fronds that bear air bladders. These 'airbags' help the algae to stand up straight under water. Rockweed lacks true roots, stems, and leaves, and because they lack a vascular system, absorb dissolved nutrients directly through the blades. Rockweed attaches to rocks with a disc-like “holdfast”, and regenerate fronds from remaining holdfasts after a natural disturbance that removes upright fronds. [show more]
|2082||Landscape of Change|
Exploring the Past to Build a Resilient Future To understand how climate change is affecting Mount Desert Island we need to look to the past. Our ancestors documented the natural world around them in stories, reports, journals, diaries, and letters, which are cared for in the collections of history museums and libraries. Increasingly, scientists are pulling observations and data from historic records to get a clearer picture of the natural world of the past to understand how the present is changing. [show more]
