Love this work....
 
If you're interested in in situ methods for HPC, our collaborator E. Wes Bethel from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab is presenting an accepted State-of-the-Art Report (STAR) paper at EuroVis2016 tomorrow, June 8. The paper brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners using in situ methods in extreme-scale HPC, presenting existing methods, infrastructures, and a range of computational science and engineering applications using in situ analysis and visualization. You can also find the abstract on the Kitware blog. Congrats to all of the authors! https://blog.kitware.com/paper-on-in-situ-methods-accepted-for-publication/

Here's a fun front page article in the Washington Post on lobstering on Little Cranberry Island, Maine. The lobsters are sent to China. This island is one of our favorite kayaking destinations, and yes I can attest that there are a lot of lobster buoys during season.

Finally a decent snow! The carriage trains are groomed with many miles wending through the woods. A superb day....

+Marcus Hanwell that's funny, this winter is the coldest I've seen in Los Alamos, it's been freezing essentially the whole winter. It's really amazing and I love it.

As you can see, Maine is a great place for star watching. This weekend there is also the Acadia Night Sky Festival

Glowing Coast by Adam Woodworth  

Bioluminescence from microorganisms being washed around in the waves as captured at the cliffs of Acadia National Park in Maine. 

While the glow in the photo is brighter and much more blue than it was in person due to the limitations of human vision in the dark, and the fact that that camera can see more with long exposures, it was still intense to see in person and the photo doesn’t do the experience justice. 

The blue light is real, and is just about how my camera captured it, I didn’t do anything to boost the blue. My night vision was adapted enough to see the bright glow in the water as the waves washed over rocks, exciting the dinoflagellates in the water. 

Equipment: Nikon D810A, Promote remote, Gitzo GT2542L tripod, Acratech GP ballhead

An epic off road bike ride, I got carried away, went way too far, and in the end got a flat tire (photo). The other 360 panorama was taken on the backside of Sargent Mountain on the Acadia carriage trials (the Around Mountain section neat signpost 10 see https://www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/upload/CRUMmap.pdf). Fortunately the flat was on my beat up gravel bike and I had a spare inner tube and a CO2 cartridge so I made it home humbled but exhilarated.

Susan's Golden Chain Tree is blooming nicely this year. It wasn't too long ago (before the deer fence) that we thought the tree was dead.... a buck decided to rub his antlers on the tree and really damaged the bark.

I celebrated my birthday with a new carbon wheelset and the first outdoor ride of the season on a cold but bright, sunny day.

The epitome of sports competition: the Bar Harbor Bed Races

http://www.mdislander.com/featured/bed-races-attract-throng-bed-hogs-win

Each bed requires four pushers and one person in the bed. The race runs about 150 yards down Cottage Street, makes a U-Turn and returns.

The races occur after the Early Bird Pajama sale starting at 6:00am where those wearing PJ's receive the heftiest discounts (it's weird to see hundreds of people walking around in PJ's and robes).
Hundreds of spectators turned out for the annual Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce bed races on Saturday.

Let the onslaught of cruise ships begin in Bar Harbor. 71 cruise ship visits are planned in 49 days. Needless to say I will be not be kayaking in that neck of the woods...

BAR HARBOR — The fall “shoulder season” has arrived here, which means a shift in the flow of tourists in town. In the summer months, families on vacation from elsewhere in the United States come in their own cars and camp or stay in hotels. Now that kids are back in school, attention shifts to ...
