Abstract: The relative difference in sea surface temperatures (SST) between the tropical Atlantic main development region (MDR, 10N-20N, 60W-20W) and the tropical Pacific influences Atlantic tropical cyclone activity through atmospheric teleconnections. However, the seasonality of the Pacific and Atlantic SST contributions to Atlantic hurricane activity is unclear. This analysis finds that MDR and El Nio"Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Nio 3 (5N-5S, 150W-90W) SSTs have similar late-season impact on Atlantic tropical cyclone activity, but MDR SSTs dominate the early-season. This reflects the reduced variance of Nio 3 SSTs consistent with observations and driven by ENSO phase locking to the seasonal cycle. Increased predictability of hurricane activity in the late-season is linked to greater variability of late-season equatorial Pacific SSTs and reflected in hindcasts of the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME). Insights into teleconnections that influence Atlantic hurricane activity, along with the limitations of early-season NMME predictability, are important for improving operational seasonal outlooks.

Abstract:
This study presents the marine heatwaves (MHWs) in the Arctic and vicinity during 1982'2020. Our analyses indicated that the MHWs in the Arctic were as strong as in the other ocean basins. The annual intensity, duration, frequency, and areal coverage of MHWs increased significantly during 2000"2020, in comparison with those during 1982"2000, due to a warmer climate in the later periods. These MHWs generally started from mid-July to early August during 1982'2020. In contrast, they ended in mid-August during 1982"2000, early September during 2000"2010, and late September during 2010"2020, indicating prolonged MHW seasons in the recent decades. Our analyses suggest that the increase of MHW activities in the Arctic was attributed to the warm advection from the continents to the Arctic Ocean and reduced ice concentration.

Abstract:
Medium-range forecasts are especially important in Alaska. Many people live in, or travel to areas with limited or no connectivity. Opportunities to receive weather forecast information may only occur every few days and travel plans are made based on the categories shown on the Climate Prediction Center's (CPC's) 6-10 and 8-14 Day Outlooks for temperature and precipitation. These are the only official NOAA forecast products that cover the time periods between days 8 and 14. What are the utility of these forecasts in Alaska and how do their performances compare to the Contiguous U.S. (Lower 48)? Heidke and Ranked Probability scores are currently available at the station-level for the Lower 48, but no scores are published for Alaska. This study uses maps and statistics to identify when the CPC's Alaska medium-range forecasts successfully capture large scale patterns, and when the forecasts provide maximum (and minimum) benefit.

Abstract: Mangroves are a key coastal habitat throughout the tropics of the world. They serve as rich nurseries for many fisheries and habitat for birds and invertebrates, and buffer coastal communities from extreme storms and sequester carbon, among many other ecosystem services. In a changing climate, mangrove range expansion is occurring along coastal and estuarine areas of the Gulf of Mexico, while established and extensive mangrove areas in peninsular Florida and the Caribbean are facing different challenges and new threats. The National Estuarine Research Reserve system is carefully monitoring the extent and distribution of mangroves in all of these regions. Researchers are studying how they are impacting the ecological functions of other estuarine habitats and resource stewards are experimenting with ways to restore mangroves that have been degraded. In this collaborative webinar, case studies are shared from each region looking at mangrove history, current status and research, as well as future implications and ongoing questions.

Abstract:
The current generation of fisheries stock assessment models is aging and has limited ability to incorporate climate change, multispecies interactions, and socioeconomic pressures. The international assessment community is ready to move to improved software that is better equipped to model these factors. Next generation software presents an opportunity to develop an integrated framework for community-developed, open source models that are more comprehensive, flexible, and modular. To facilitate this, NOAA Fisheries is investing in a Fisheries Integrated Modeling System (FIMS), a collaborative stock assessment software system.

Abstract:
Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus) are the second largest ground fish fishery in Alaska and a key component of the Eastern Bering Sea ecosystem. In recent years, temperatures in the Bering Sea have been unusually warm, causing a shift in the summer distribution and abundance of Pacific cod from their usual southern Bering Sea habitat to the Northern Bering Sea. This northward shift in the summer biomass could indicate newly emerging northern stocks or an expansion of summer habitat of southern stocks during warm years that move back to the Southern Bering Sea to spawn in the winter. Understanding this seasonal movement will have a direct impact on Pacific cod stock assessment, commercial fisheries, and the northern Bering Sea ecosystem.This study examined the seasonal movement of Pacific cod by applying 38 Pop up Satellite tags to cod during the summer of 2019 and releasing them in the Northern Bering Sea. Satellite pop up tags provide information on the location of the fish at time of pop up, as well as continuous data series on light, temperature and depth. These data make it possible to determine the movement path, as well as insights into the movement behavior of individual fish. To date 35 of the tags have success fully popped up. We estimated daily location probabilities for the tagged fish using a discrete state-space movement model based on longitude from light intensity measurements and maximum daily recorded depth. Daily location probability estimates were used to reconstruct the travel paths of tagged fish during tag deployment. In addition, location probabilities for multiple fish were combined to produce monthly maps of tagged cod distributions. Reconstructed travel paths of tagged fish and PSAT data were used to characterize movement patterns and relationships with depth, temperature, and sea ice extent during summer foraging, winter spawning, and post-spawning time periods. Among individual tagged fish, we observed all fish leaving the Northern Bering Sea rea with large-scale movements of 750 km or more to the coastal shelf and canyons in the southeastern Bering Sea, Russia, and the western Gulf of Alaska during the February/March spawning season and some return travel to the NBS the following summer. Monthly tag distribution maps and. PSAT temperature records indicated that none of the 31 tagged fish were located under sea ice in the NBS during the winter. This information on movement patterns and environmental correlates provides valuable insights into the mechanisms that may underlie the seasonal movement of cod in the NBS and allow predictions of cod spatial distribution in warm vs. cold winters or under different climate change scenarios.

Abstract:
Marine debris is a global problem, with items of all kinds impacting shoreline and marine environments in many different ways. It is a specifically unique and challenging issue in Alaska, which receives large amounts of debris based on its position relative to wind and current patterns, in addition to the debris that comes from local sources. Debris has been observed from Southeast Alaska into the Arctic, with different debris types posing different threats to wildlife and habitat. There is a dedicated and innovative community of groups working on the issue within Alaska, removing debris from the environment, researching occurrence and impacts, and working to change behaviors to prevent new debris entering the environment. Understanding debris patterns in terms of composition and quantity through shoreline monitoring and observation is an important part of better understanding and combating the marine debris issue. Some of the earliest shoreline data on debris came from Alaska, and there have been efforts across the state to quantify and understand debris using different techniques and structures. Globally, the Arctic Council is focusing on marine debris, initiating plans and structures for monitoring and action planning across environmental compartments. This talk will discuss the many different aspects of debris efforts in Alaska, with a specific focus on recent efforts focused on the Arctic and the opportunities and challenges that exist for working in these unique areas.

Abstract:
Many of our AK Indigenous People express the responsibility to family, village and broader community in the values identified by our Elders. As leaders, this responsibility relates to accountability and action. In 2019, Youth and Elders at the AK Federation of Natives passed a resolution that clearly calls out our climate crisis and the need to act. More recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) and the Status of Tribes and Climate Change (STACC) Reports were released with some significant and key messages. In this webinar, senior climate scientist Dr. John Walsh will highlight a Quick Guide to Climate reports including their purpose, how they are created, some key messages for Alaska, and how they might be used with other information in climate change adaptation work. Indigenous climate activist and creative, Princess Daazhraii Johnson, explores our individual and collective responsibility to act and the need for leadership in all arenas of governance/government to be accountable to the messages in timely climate reports and act on behalf of our children and humanity as a whole.

This is a joint webinar between the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy and the Alaska Tribal Resilience Learning Network, part of the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center.

Abstract:

According to the September 9 U.S. Drought Monitor, 100% of CA/NV is in drought, with 79.6% in Extreme (D3) or Exceptional (D4) Drought.
Continued drying has enhanced wildfire risk throughout the region, reflected in several continuing very large wildfires in northern California. Further, forecasts increasingly reflect the potential for La Nia development in the fall and into the winter. Historically, La Nia is associated with dry to normal conditions in the southern part of California and Nevada.

The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) September 2021 Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar is part of a series of regular drought and climate outlook webinars designed to provide stakeholders and other interested parties in the region with timely information on current drought status and impacts, as well as a preview of current and developing climatic events (i.e. El Nio and La Nia).

Abstract: Barrier islands and their adjacent saltmarshes have a synergistic relationship: wind and storm processes transport sediment from the beaches and dunes to create and build marshes along the landward fringe of the island. In turn, these marshes exert a stabilizing influence on the island by forming a platform onto which the island migrates, consequently slowing landward barrier migration and inhibiting storm breaching. This presentation will introduce these barrier-marsh couplings and highlight a novel framework for applying them to coastal management. Further, it will detail a case study of the design of a marsh creation project that showcases the engagement of scientists, engineers, stakeholders, and policymakers. Specifically, it will describe (1) the geologic and ecologic data obtained from the southern 4 km of Cedar Island (Virginia, USA) and nearby back barrier tidal channels, tidal flats, and flood-tidal deltas and (2) the use of those data to develop an engineering and design plan for the construction of a high (46 ha) and low (42 ha) fringing marsh platform located behind the island, proximal to a former ephemeral inlet. Construction of this marsh would(1) provide additional habitat and ecosystem benefits, (2) slow the rapid migration of Cedar Island, and (3) hinder island breaching. The presentation will also chronicle project design selection, which involved balancing best-available existing science and models, considering design and financial constraints, identifying stakeholder preferences, and maximizing restoration benefits of habitat provision and shoreline protection. Ultimately, the project to be presented"presently at the final design and permitting stage"may enhance the storm and sea-level rise resilience of the island, backbarrier marshes and lagoons, and the mainland town community; and provide an example of a novel science-based approach to coastal resilience that could be applied to managing other coupled marsh-barrier settings.

Bio(s): Christopher Hein is a coastal marine geologist at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), William &Mary (W&M). He received a bachelor's degree in Earth Science from Cornell University in 2003 and a doctoral degree in coastal geology from Boston University in 2012. Prior to starting at VIMS in 2013, Hein completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Hein's research is primarily focused on coastal change, and forecasting the impacts of sea-level rise, changing coastal sediment supplies, and increased frequency/intensity of storms on barrier islands, dunes, marshes, tidal inlets, and the communities that live, work, and recreate on them. He does this primarily through looking at the past record of coastal change over the last several thousand years, preserved in the sediment and the historic records. Hein is also an active educator: he currently advises four graduate students and six undergraduates, and co-directs the VIMS/W&M Undergraduate Program in Marine Science.

Abstract:
Arctic observing and data systems have been identified as critical infrastructures to support scientific understanding and decision-making from local to regional and global scales, yet there remain significant challenges to developing, integrating and sustaining the needed systems. These challenges arise from the complexity of coordination across many organizational centers of action, sparse deployment and telecommunications infrastructure and physical conditions of polar regions that constrain technology options. Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON) was initiated to address the challenges related to coordination across a heterogeneous collection of national and organizational actors engaged in Arctic observing. Within this complex partnership setting, SAON recognizes the value of polycentric' governance models, which work to generate alignment around shared goals across many centers of action in non-hierarchal arrangements. Polycentric thinking has inspired SAON's vision for a coordination and planning framework for developing observing and data system requirements and implementation strategies under its Roadmap for Arctic Observing and Data Systems (SAON-ROADS). ROADS' guidance, among other things, calls for equitable partnering with Indigenous Peoples, a focus on shared benefits from observing and data systems, complementarity to existing regional to global observing efforts, and incremental approaches that are flexible and inclusive. The success of the SAON-ROADS vision is highly dependent on the engagement of SAON partners in the planning process. This talk will illustrate how nationally coordinated actions within the US are serving as a model for supporting the ROADS process.

Abstract:
The Coastal Wetland Equilibrium Model is a customizable software tool used to forecast the effects of rising sea level on coastal wetlands. It solves a system of differential equations to calculate when and under what conditions a marsh or mangrove ecosystem is stable or unstable. It incorporates feedbacks among relative elevation, plant growth, suspended sediment concentration, flooding and vertical sediment accretion to answers important basic questions, such as at what rate of sea-level rise will a tidal wetland drown and on what time scale? It addresses important dependencies such as tidal range, vertical growth profile, relative elevation, root distribution and turnover, and organic matter decay.
It can forecast responses to thin layer placement of sediment, and the model can solve for different scenarios to find the most efficient strategy for thin layer placement in terms of maximizing survival and carbon sequestration. A brief history of the theory will be discussed as well as the model's required inputs, sensitivities, and results.

Title: Improved Understanding of Sediment Dynamics for the Coos Estuary

Presenter(s): David Sutherland, University of Oregon; Emily Eidam, University of North Carolina; Jenni Schmitt, South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve

Sponsor(s): This webinar is sponsored by the NERRS Science Collaborative

Seminar Contact(s): Doug George (douglas.george@noaa.gov) or Nick Soberal (nsoberal@umich.edu)

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/857870175444512268 Abstract
Designated one of Oregon's three deep draft development estuaries, the Coos estuary has many diverse users who share a need for better information about water and sediment flows through the estuary under current and future conditions. Working closely with the South Slough NERR and the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds, a local stakeholder group, researchers from the University of Oregon and the University of North Carolina helped to address some of these informational needs. The team collected new data, including the first bathymetric dataset to cover the entire Coos estuary, and developed a hydrodynamic model to better understand and predict estuarine water and sediment flows. They then worked with end users to develop data and modeling products of interest, including two perturbation experiments analyzing a proposed deepening and widening of the estuary's main navigation channel. In this webinar, members of the project team will discuss the end-user engagement approach used in their collaborative research project, present highlights from the model experiments, and share observations from an examination of historic estuary conditions prior to human impacts.

Abstract: During this webinar, we will present a quick overview of the NOAA Prevention, Control and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms (PCMHAB) program. This overview of PCMHAB will provide context to our description of the new NOAA notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) available to institutions affiliated with Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Units in which NOAA is a member partner. NOAA expects to fund through this NOFO the development and implementation of an idea incubator that will solicit and support the assessment of novel technologies that can be used to control the formation and spread of harmful algal blooms (HABs).The incubator will also be expected to create a clearinghouse of accepted methodologies and the related regulatory requirements to help resource managers addressing HABs identify and expedite the implementation of those technologies that would be most effective for the respective HABs. After the PCMHAB overview and the description of the NOFO, we will be available to answer questions from participants that may be interested in applying to this funding announcement.

Bio(s): Felix Martinez is a Program Manager with the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) Competitive Research Program (CRP).

Seminar Contact(s): Meredith Muth (meredith.muth@noaa.gov)

Remote Access: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/6045283571849369871

Abstract: The Coastal Salinity Index (CSI) is a long-term monitoring tool developed in 2017 through a USGS and NIDIS partnership to help users characterize and assess fluctuating salinity conditions in coastal areas due to events such as drought and floods. The index can be used for different estuary types (for example: brackish, oligohaline, or mesohaline), for regional comparison between estuaries, and as an index of wet conditions (high freshwater inflow) in addition to drought (saline) conditions.

In 2019, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published a website to disseminate real-time CSI results for 17 USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center salinity gages. Funding provided from the USGS Community for Data Integration in 2020 allowed the CSI team to expand this network to 103 gages located from Maine to Texas and Puerto Rico, by including additional real-time salinity gages from the USGS, Everglades National Park, and the National Estuarine Research Reserve System. This webinar will describe the motivation for and development of the CSI, the expanded CSI website, and applications of the CSI to existing field investigations.
