With ever-warming waters, European fish are on the move

We all have our favourite types of environment and weather.  Some love those warm, sunny days spent on a beach of golden sands.  Some love those rainy days in the forest, when everything glistens with the raindrops.  Some love nothing more than a cold crisp day in snowy mountains.  We humans are lucky.  We can not only survive but enjoy a wealth of different environmental conditions.  Many other species are not so adaptive.  In the oceans some creatures live in the seabed itself, others on top.  Some may stay in the water column dominated by a particular type of habitat like a kelp forest, whilst others roam into a variety of different locations throughout their lives.  Then there are the varying conditions of the ocean itself.  Some areas are generally calm whilst others may experience a lot of movement.  Salinity levelsalso vary,... more »

Okay, this is pretty interesting if you have ever bought Girl Scout Cookies. Apparently there are two different bakers who use slightly different recipes.

Mercator
by Sidney Beck

Dude who in a cartographic essay 
Made Canada five times bigger than USA, 
And Greenland with room to spare 
Much bigger than Africa way down there. 
But his meridians all went parallel - 
So when sailing your carrack or caravel 
You could follow straight lines to get there: 
Which proved at last the world was square.

Happy Birthday, Geradus Mercator and thank you, +Uwe Wackwitz!

Why a collection of maps is called Atlas ... 
Happy birthday to Gerardus Mercator. :-)

Born 503 years ago, his map projection is still in use today. He was the first to use the term "Atlas" for a collection of maps.

Gerardus Mercator (born 5 March 1512 in Rupelmonde, County of Flanders (in modern Belgium), died 2 December 1594 in Duisburg, Tervuren, (modern-day Germany)) was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines.

“What do I fear? Myself? There’s none else by.
Richard loves Richard; that is, I and I.
Is there a murderer here? No. Yes, I am.
Then fly! What, from myself? Great reason why:
Lest I revenge. What, myself upon myself?
Alack, I love myself. Wherefore? For any good
That I myself have done unto myself?
O, no! Alas, I rather hate myself
For hateful deeds committed by myself.
I am a villain. Yet I lie. I am not…”
~ Shakespeare, Richard III

Thank you, +Timothy Street​

The first documented performance of a play by William Shakespeare in America was Richard III  #onthisday in 1750, in Philadelphia. 

"When Richard placed the sword in her hand," a reporter observed, "one half the house, at least, asked that it might be plunged in his body." This storm of shouts was followed by a renewal of the vegetable shower accompanied this time by Chinese firecrackers. As poor Richard fled for the second time, "a well directed pumpkin caused him to stagger, and with still truer aim, a potato relieved him of his cap, which was left upon the field of glory, among the cabbages."   (not the same performance, but similar)

"The egg as a vehicle of dramatic criticism came into early use in this Continent." Despondency over the use of such critical "vehicles" by audiences in Philadelphia's Chestnut Street Theatre led the actor Richard Fullerton to drown himself in the Delaware River in the winter of 1802. "He was annoyed by anonymous and cutting criticisms," a contemporary observed, "and by contemptible hissing and other open demonstrations directed to him personally when on the stage."  (ah, the good old days before Oscars, Globes, Tonys, or Emmys)

Q. When was Desdemona like a ship?
A. When she was moored.
(minstrel show joke)

#shakespeare    #theater    #history    #america

Alexis de Tocqueville first read Henry V in a log cabin.  Mark Twain had an enduring relationship with the playwright. The actor James Cagney played a wonderful ass.  The following article is lengthy, but interesting enough for the casual Shakespearean aficionado to peruse:

Probably the best statistical graphic ever drawn, this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812. Beginning at the Polish-Russian border, the thick band shows the size of the army at each position. The path of Napoleon's retreat from Moscow in the bitterly cold winter is depicted by the dark lower band, which is tied to temperature and time scales.

This is most impressive

I am very much into maps and visualization of data. Not that I could do it, mind you. I am trying to, but I won't show anybody ;)

"Minard was a pioneer of the use of graphics in engineering and statistics. He is most well known for his cartographic depiction of numerical data on a map of Napoleon's disastrous losses suffered during the Russian campaign of 1812 (in French, Carte figurative des pertes successives en hommes de l'Armée Française dans la campagne de Russie 1812-1813). The illustration depicts Napoleon's army departing the Polish-Russian border. A thick band illustrates the size of his army at specific geographic points during their advance and retreat. It displays six types of data in two dimensions: the number of Napoleon's troops; the distance traveled; temperature; latitude and longitude; direction of travel; and location relative to specific dates.[2] This type of band graph for illustration of flows was later called a Sankey diagram, although Matthew Sankey used this visualisation 30 years later and only for thematic energy flow)."___Probably the best statistical graphic ever drawn, this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812.

Excellent! Thank you, +Dave Shapiro​!

The Gift of the British

”Geography is one of the eyes of history.” - 18th Century commentator.

Historically there have been four small areas that have had a massive impact on the world: the city of Rome, Greece, Israel and England. If one examines a map of the world, it is amazing all of the countries that have been attack and/or conquered by that tiny little section of the British Isles known as England. (Technically all but 22 of today’s countries have ‘enjoyed’ the British experience.) The influence and impact of England on the modern world cannot be denied. 

One area that the British excelled at is mapping; they mapped everything, everywhere they went. Prior to today’s Google Maps, etc. the maps of the Ordnance Survey were considered the best commercial maps in the world. (Military maps, CIA maps, etc. may have greater detail but were not readily available.) 

The kernel that grew into this map bonanza began in 1747 when King George II commissioned Lieutenant Colonel David Watson to complete a military survey of the Scottish Highlands. This was intended to facilitate the the subjugation of Scotland. His map was the first ever, extremely detailed, cartographic rendering of a large area. The map aspect was 1 inch to 1000 yards ( 2.5 cm to 914 m).

Fear of the effects of the French Revolution led to the establishment of the British Ordnance Survey in 1791. The engineers and cartographers began to map all of Southern England in haste . They developed a method of triangulation for determining location. Today they use laser and GPS devices as well as computers and satellite photos. The OS Master Map is updated 5000 times per day.

As the British Empire spread, they began mapping every territory possible. Not every map is as detailed as those of Great Britain itself but these maps generally exceeded anything that had been created previously. In most of the countries they encountered, the British instilled a desire for the host to continue mapping their own territories. 

In his book, Map Addict, Mike Parker wrote: “We may have been late starters in the game, but we’ve more than made up for it subsequently, especially over the past 400 years - ever since, in fact, we started needing maps in order to go and rough up bits of the rest of the world and declare them to be ours. ....were it not for the Empire and our military bravado, we would be a great deal further down the cartographic rankings.”

Even though the Empire has passed, the British love for cartography remains. In 1963, the British Cartographic Society was established. The organization is dedicated to exploring and creating maps of the world. Members include professional cartographers, publishers and people simply interested in maps. It is regarded as one of the leading (if not the top position) cartographic societies in the world. The BCS has no connection to any governmental body and is legally listed as a charity.The society has several publications but more important is the annual series of awards they provide to encourage mapping.

Stanford Associate Professor of Earth System Science, +Noah Diffenbaugh,  and other researchers find that human-caused climate change is increasing drought risk in California and making it likely to be an ongoing trend for the future.

See also the report in the Merc: http://www.mercurynews.com/drought/ci_27625258/california-drought-likely-fixture-says-stanford-study

Thank you, +Noah Diffenbaugh 

NEW RESEARCH: "Anthropogenic warming has increased drought risk in California"

I have a new paper with +Daniel Swain and +Danielle Touma out today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. We analyze historical observations, climate model experiments with and without human emissions of greenhouse gases, and climate model experiments assuming continued emissions. From these multiple data sources, we find clear evidence (i.e., high statistical confidence) that human-caused global warming has already increased the risk of the kinds of hot-dry conditions that are responsible for the current severe drought in California.

Here is the "Significance Statement" from the paper:

"California ranks first in the United States in population, economic activity, and agricultural value. The state is currently experiencing a record-setting drought, which has led to acute water shortages, groundwater overdraft, critically low streamflow, and enhanced wildfire risk. Our analyses show that California has historically been more likely to experience drought if precipitation deficits co-occur with warm conditions and that such confluences have increased in recent decades, leading to increases in the fraction of low-precipitation years that yield drought. In addition, we find that human emissions have increased the probability that low-precipitation years are also warm, suggesting that anthropogenic warming is increasing the probability of the co-occurring warm–dry conditions that have created the current California drought."

Here is a link to the peer-reviewed paper, which is available Open Access:

Graffiti artists Sammy Espinosa and Cynthia Aguilera, known as UnKolorDistinto (A Different Color) paint the town of Valparaiso, Chile's garbage trucks to change perceptions about waste collection.

Love it! Thank you, +Irina Tcherednichenko!

"In contrast with Chile's orderly capital, Santiago, only 90 minutes away, the bohemian port city of Valpo—as it is commonly known—has packs of dogs and cats that wander up and down its steep hills, through rickety clapboard or metal buildings and winding alleys, rummaging through trash. "The images [on the trucks] are an interpretation of what happens in this town, with a touch of surrealism," says Aguilera.

The municipality of Valparaiso hired UnKolorDistinto to paint the garbage trucks as part of a campaign to change people's attitudes about waste disposal, in an attempt to address what has become a chronic problem for the city."___Graffiti artists Sammy Espinosa and Cynthia Aguilera, known as UnKolorDistinto (A Different Color) paint the town of Valparaiso, Chile's garbage trucks to change perceptions about waste collection.

Our favorite marine conservation biologist/ecologist, +Sam Andrews, talks about studies that show European fish migration due to ocean warming.

Thank you, +Sam Andrews 

With ever-warming waters, European fish are on the move

We all have our favourite types of environment and weather.  Some love those warm, sunny days spent on a beach of golden sands.  Some love those rainy days in the forest, when everything glistens with the raindrops.  Some love nothing more than a cold crisp day in snowy mountains.  We humans are lucky.  We can not only survive but enjoy a wealth of different environmental conditions.  Many other species are not so adaptive.  In the oceans some creatures live in the seabed itself, others on top.  Some may stay in the water column dominated by a particular type of habitat like a kelp forest, whilst others roam into a variety of different locations throughout their lives.  Then there are the varying conditions of the ocean itself.  Some areas are generally calm whilst others may experience a lot of movement.  Salinity levels also vary, as does oxygen, as does temperature.  Actually temperature – as many a fisher will know - is a super important driver of species distribution.  There are a few reasons for this.  First, unlike us, most fish do not have the ability to control their own body temperature.  Their internal body temperature reflects that of the environment they are in.  The second primary reason relates to food.  If the major food of a fish – be it plant (phytoplankton) or animal – changes its abundance (how many) or its distribution (where it is), then the fish may follow.

The world's seas are getting warmer.  On a global scale, measurements indicate that between 1971 and 2010 the upper 75 meters of the ocean has warmed by 0.11⁰C.  Doesn’t sound like much but already numerous scientific studies as well data garnered from traditional ecological knowledge and those working in the oceans are pointing to shifts in some – but not all - species distributions.  Pelagic fish – those who spend their lives in the water column, seems to be on the move more than benthic fish, who spend their lives on or near the sea floor.  Then there is location.  The on a global scale the ocean surface may have warmed by 0.11⁰C, but it has not uniformly warmed by 0.11⁰C.  Twenty major global warming hotspots – areas in which the ocean is warming much more rapidly than the average – have been identified in the world.  One of those hotspots is the North Sea.  The North Sea is, like all seas, home to pelagic fish… pelagic fish that aren’t just ecologically important, but commercially.   Between 2000 and 2011 six such species - European sprat (Sprattus sprattus), Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus), Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus), Atlantic horse mackerel (Trachurus trachurus), European pilchard (Sardina pilchardus) and European anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) made up an average 39.1% of the 8,965,617 tonnes of fish harvested each year from the Northeast Atlantic.  These guys are also known as ‘forage fish’ and make up key positions in the Northeast Atlantic marine food web.  And because of their fairly quick lifecycles, they are among those most likely to respond to changes in water temperature.  It appears that they have done just that.

Ignasi Montero-Serra from the University of Bristol and University of Barcelona, and collaborators didn’t use and special monitoring techniques to uncover the changing distributions of these six key fish species.  Instead they used data that was already available.  To get a grasp of where species are – and indeed some key prey species, they used Fisheries-independent data from International Bottom Trawl Surveys collected between 1965 and 2012.  Wait a minute… bottom trawl you say?  These fish are pelagic right?!  This is true, but the authors note that the data collected by these surveys are reliable indicators*.  The UK Meteorological Office Hadley Centre’s Global Ocean Surface Temperature (GISST) databank was able to provide them with monthly mean sea surface temperatures for the same time, and the same areas the fish data came from.  Actually this study claims to be the first to be carried out over such a long time scale, and such a large area – both important factors for assessing changes in species distributions.  Put sea surface temperature, prey and the fish distribution data together, do some fancy calculations and you have information on how the six fish species distributions have changed over time – and how that correlates to any changes in average temperature and prey distribution.

Each species had its own unique distribution – and change in distribution over time.  Prey distribution does matter, but more important is sea surface temperature itself.  Generally, it seems that the sea surface temperature of the previous year had a strong influence on species occurrence.  In effect this means temperature matters for reproduction and larval survival, and reproduction and larval survival matter for abundance and distribution.  Warmer waters, the researchers note, can increase growth and metabolic rates of the early stages of fish, but it also means the larvae need to eat more – and thus are at greater risk of starvation (the risk of starvation – and indeed being eaten – is already very high for larval fish).  More specifically, it seems that sardines, anchovies and pilchards in particular are moving increasingly more north, occupying the higher temperature environments that are now found there.  For fishers in the south that target these guys, this shift is bad news.  Not all species changed latitudinal distribution though.  European sprat, Atlantic house mackerel, and Atlantic mackerel didn’t really shift (but did show changes in abundance with copepod blooms).

For more northerly fishers who may want to fish sardines, anchovies, and pilchards this shift may be good news.   Take home message for the North Sea fishing community… make sure you – and your community as a whole – can adapt to these changing distributions.  The source of your income may have moved on. 

* For those who are interested, have a look at the paper for a link – which is at the bottom of this post - to the survey methods

The paper was published in the journal Global Change Biology and has been made open access by the authors (hurrah!).  Have a read of it here http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/gcb.12747

Bright plates and pannikins
To sail the seas around,
And a new donkey's breakfast
For the outward bound!  

Shanghaied in San Francisco
We brought up in Bombay
Where they put us afloat in an old Leith boat
That steered like a stack of hay.

We've sweltered in the Tropics
When the pitch boiled through the deck—
And saved our hides and little besides
In an ice-cold North Sea wreck.

We've drunk our rum in Portland
And we've thrashed through Bering Strait—
And we've toed the mark on a Yankee barque
With a hard-case Down-east mate.

We know the streets of Santos
And the loom of the lone Azores—
We've eat our grub from a salt-horse tub
Condemned from the Navy stores.

We know the road to Auckland
And the light on Sydney Head—
And we've crept close-hauled when the leadsman called
The depth of the Channel bed.

They pay us off in London
And it's "O for a spell ashore!"
But again we ship for the Southern trip
In a week or hardly more

For— it's "Goodbye Sally and Sue"
And— "It's time to get afloat—"
With an aching head and a straw-stuffed bed,
And a knife and an oil-skin coat.

Sing— "Time to leave her, Johnny!"
Sing— "Bound for the Rio Grande!"
When the tug turns back you follow her track
For a last, long look at land.

Then the purple disappears—
And only the blue is seen—
That will take our bones to Davy Jones
And our souls to Fiddler's Green.

Today, if a climate is not to our liking, we alter the ecosystem to our own ends. We build our shelters, we travel in little cocoons with air-conditioning and stereophonic sound, and we import vast amounts of resources and fuels to maintain our chosen lifestyle. We tend to ignore the other elements of the ecosystem where we live and visit. We don't embrace our environment, we cut ourselves off from it. It's when I'm in a place like Red Rock that I am reminded of where we come from, our ultimate heritage. We are children of the Earth. And there are limits.

Technology, particularly information technology, and within that the information technology known as geographic information systems (GIS) has long provided effective solutions to similar problems on land through innovations in information and imaging. Today, our mission is to take what we’ve learned on land and apply these innovations more effectively to the ocean so that we may build resilience and avoid collapse.

The ocean presents some very challenging 3- and 4-dimensional problems. The ocean is very hard to access at full depth from sea surface to sea floor. Satellites and LiDAR, for example, while providing broad, comprehensive views of the surface of the ocean, can’t see all the way through the water in all places, and as a result, only 5 to 10% of the ocean is mapped in the same detail as on land.

It’s a hard mission. But it’s a mission totally within our grasp.

America with those known parts in that unknowne worlde... both people and manner of buildings 

A nicely colored version of John Speed's, Britain's most famous English map maker, map of the Americas issued in the 1676 edition of his atlas. Gorgeously adorned with lovely insets of the native people along the sides and major settlements along the top. There be no monsters in the Pacificke and Atlanticke oceans, but there are plenty of happily spouting whales and veritable hordes of whaling ships after them. 

Note the Island of California, one of the most famous cartographic errors in history dating from the 16th century. More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_of_California

As I wrote this book, the singular and beautiful music of the late Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole was always playing. I hope that the reader finds pleasure in my story equal to the joy and consolation that I found in the voice, the spirit, and the heart of Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole.

A scientific revolution occurs, according to [Thomas] Kuhn [The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, 1962], when scientists encounter anomalies which cannot be explained by the universally accepted paradigm within which scientific progress up to this point has been made. It is driven by 'heretics' who question the accepted paradigm and by agents of change among them who challenge the prevailing wisdom. Examples of important paradigm shifts include the shift from the belief that the sun rotated around the earth to the view that the earth rotates around the sun. The "discovery" of the Americas radically changed the pre-existing views of the world and resulted in major paradigm shifts in many different fields of human knowledge -- including geography, navigation, religion, science, economics and politics.

A scientific revolution occurs, according to [Thomas] Kuhn [The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, 1962], when scientists encounter anomalies which cannot be explained by the universally accepted paradigm within which scientific progress up to this point has been made. It is driven by 'heretics' who question the accepted paradigm and by agents of change among them who challenge the prevailing wisdom. Examples of important paradigm shifts include the shift from the belief that the sun rotated around the earth to the view that the earth rotates around the sun. The "discovery" of the Americas radically changed the pre-existing views of the world and resulted in major paradigm shifts in many different fields of human knowledge -- including geography, navigation, religion, science, economics and politics.

The concept of paradigm shift has acquired broader usage in a variety of contemporary contexts, and is now often used to refer to a radical change in personal beliefs, complex systems and/or ways of organizing. It entails replacing the former way of thinking and/or organizing with a radically different new way of thinking and organizing how things are done.

The transpacific project is exploring the assumption that a radical shift is needed in the prevailing paradigm regarding the history of humanity ('world history') and particularly the history of transpacific relations. This shift would require a transformation in the prevailing world views held by many people throughout the world about the history of humanity and the relations between different societies, states and cultures across geographic regions and time periods. Many 'anomalies' have been and continue to be encountered in our current knowledge which cannot be explained by the existing paradigms.
