I love it. Well done!

#EarthDay Fun Fact: Dry Dock 1 at Charlestown Navy Yard, located next to the Museum and where USS Constitution repairs have been made since its completion in 1833, has been used as a historical reference for the oldest known tracking of rising tide levels.

It continues to be monitored today by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as part of their studies of Boston Harbor. 🌊 ... See MoreSee Less

Richard Primack, a Biology Professor at Boston University, over an eleven year period compared Henry David Thoreau’s notes about the climate at Walden Pond with his own taken on the same date. It was a revealing study about the impact of global warming.
