Intertidal Zone Monitoring Plan
  • Indicator Species
  • e.g. shore birds, blue mussel, harbor seal
  • Students Community Involvement
  • e.g. work/study positions, volunteer programs
  • Monitoring Techniques
  • e.g. Photo Monitoring
  • …we use photographs, where we go out and
    photograph the same plot every spring and every
    fall to look at the changes in the abundance and
    the distribution and the size of the mussels and
    barnacles , of the major algae, the kelps that
    grow…that allows us to gather a lot of
    information in a short period of time. Then we
    can bring those photographs into the laboratory…

Designing Efficiently
http//asknature.org/product/49269092db17515de04ac
92a75f68bb1
  • Tubercle wind turbine technologies
  • (inspired by humpback whale fins)
  • Based on BIOMIMICRY approach
  • Ask Nature

Solar Energy
  • Prism Solar Technologies
  • Green Roofs- work in conjunction with solar
    panels
  • Fenestration
  • 25 - 85 less silicon used in glass solar panels

ics/turbines.jpg
  • Glass Solar Panel designed by Prism Solar
    Technologies
  • Fenway Park Boston, MA

21
Solar Panels Work Most Efficiently with Green
Roofs
  • Standard temperature for solar panels is 70 F
  • Green roofs reduce roof temperature to an avg. 70
    F

Why we need Green Roofs at UMB
  • Green Roofs can…
  • Reduce storm water runoff
  • Improve air quality
  • Reduce the urban heat island effect
  • Increase biodiversity
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Noise insulation
  • Extended roof life
  • Improve aesthetics
  • Education benefits
  • Earn LEED points

26
Environmentally Friendly Building Materials
  • New Construction of 3 academic buildings
  • Local company for demolition e.g. Costello
    Dismantling
  • Re-use concrete blocks and brick
  • Hingham Shipyard- current env. friendly building
    project in Boston

27
Interior Features
  • High efficiency water fixtures
  • Can reduce water use by up to 50
  • Infrared Lavatory sinks
  • Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs
  • Allows for a more natural lighting effect
  • Occupancy Sensors for lighting control
  • Used in classrooms and laboratories
  • Can reduce electricity use by around 50 in
    optimal conditions

  • Dual flush toilet (exist for last 25 years) can
    save around 18,000 gallons of water/year for
    household
