Live From Mars was active July 1996-December 1997.
We didn't need a windsock or a pole. We had the Lighthouse.
There are no trees here. Our plants include kelp, which can be taller than a tree, Irish Moss which is still harvested as a crop, and . . .
. . . Fucus or Rockweed. During the Blizzard of 1978 many rocks of this size were 'relocated' in people's houses! We conducted a survey while we were at the site, and discovered that 44% of the beach rocks were igneous (granite, gabbro, basalt, and flowstone), 43% were sedimentary (conglomerate), and 13% were metamorphic (quartzite).
Getting the water sample was tricky. The rocks were slippery with algae and the water was VERY cold!
