Tidal Predictions, Tidal Patterns, and Tidal Power: How the Ebbs and Flows Affect Your Life

May 6, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Maine’s First Ship Spring Lecture Series

MFS volunteer Jim Parmentier will review the fundamental principles of tidal generation and prediction, describe some of the effects of tidal patterns on biological diversity, and discuss efforts currently underway to harness tidal power for electrical generation. Ocean tides are primarily caused by gravitational attractions between the earth and the moon. But the observed tide levels and current flows at any particular location depend on the interactions of ocean tides with local geographies, weather-related events, and celestial positioning. Trained as a biologist and experienced as a coastal sailor from the Carolinas to Cobscook Bay, Parmentier describes how to recognize, predict and exploit tidal movements to best advantage.

Public welcome. Suggested donation $5.
