Title: Influence of emission reduction on marine low clouds over global oceans in recent two decades

Presenter(s): Minghuai Wang, Nanjing University

Sponsor(s): NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory Seminar Series
SeminarContact: jan.kazil@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4750076469477356045

Abstract: Decadal-scale trends in aerosol and cloud properties provide important ways for understanding aerosol-cloud interactions. Here we analyze synergetic long-term trends in aerosol properties and cloud properties over the global ocean using MODIS products over the recent two decades. Cloud droplet number concentration (CDNC) and aerosol parameters show a consistent decreasing trend over the East Coast of the United States (EUS), west coast of Europe (WEU), and east coast of China (EC) due to emission reduction over recent decades. Emission reduction has lowered the hemispheric contrast of cloud droplet number concentration by more than 50% in the recent two decades. Over regions with significant long-term trends of aerosol loading and CDNC (e.g., EUS and WEU), the sensitivity of CDNC to aerosol loading based on the long-term trend is closer to those derived from ground and aircraft observations and larger than those derived from instantaneous satellite observations, providing an alternative way for quantifying aerosol-cloud interactions. Our further analysis over the East Coast of the United States reveals that, while the observed annual-mean cloud fraction shows no significant trend, this is due to the cancellation from the opposite trends in CDNC and relative humidity. A multivariate regression model revealed that the decline in CDNC alone would lead to about 20% relative decline in cloud fraction, indicating the significant aerosol effects on cloud fraction. Satellite observations are further compared with results from climate models.

Bio(s): Minghuai Wang is the Head of the Department of Atmospheric Physics at Nanjing University, and the Director of Nanjing University's Joint International Research Laboratory of Atmospheric and Earth System Sciences.

Abstract:
Understanding the processes by which marine organisms respond to their changing environments is necessary if we are to make accurate predictions and informed decisions regarding conservation efforts, seafood safety and security, and other challenges we face as climate change continues. Many organisms may be particularly vulnerable to environmental stress during early development. Detrimental effects that occur early in their life history can carry over into later life stages or lead to population bottlenecks if mortality occurs. Sea urchins that populate coastal waters along the western coast of North America fulfill ecologically important roles, particularly within kelp forest ecosystems, and are economically valuable as fisheries species. The region they inhabit is susceptible to highly variable temperature and pH conditions, and as climate change continues, these organisms are predicted to experience progressive ocean warming and acidification. In this talk, I will discuss my work investigating the early development of sea urchins raised under different combinations of temperature and pH levels. Within a single generation, embryos and larvae exhibited developmental plasticity in relation to body size, thermal tolerance, and gene expression. However, environmental conditions experienced by the parental generation can also influence offspring phenotype via transgenerational plasticity. In a separate experiment, adult urchins were acclimated to different conditions during gametogenesis. I explored how this affected maternal provisioning and compared the epigenetic, transcriptomic, and phenotypic plasticity of progeny that differed by their maternal environments.

Bio(s): Dr. Juliet Wong is a global change biologist interested in mechanisms that can confer rapid phenotypic plasticity, and understanding how they may influence ecological and evolutionary processes in marine systems. Her research spans tropical, temperate, and polar ecosystems to investigate how climate change impacts marine invertebrates. Dr. Wong studies how these organisms interact with and respond to their changing environments using a variety of physiological and molecular approaches. She is currently an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology in the Environmental Epigenetics Lab (EELab) at Florida International University.NOAA Science Seminar Series weekly email: Send an email to OneNOAAscienceseminars-request@list.woc.noaa.gov with the word 'subscribe' in the subject or body.

Please contact amber.butler@noaa.gov for technical connectivity troubleshooting.

Abstract:
This seminar will discuss the analysis of results from the IWG-OCM Spatial Priorities Study. The Spatial Priorities Study was conducted across IWG-OCM federal agencies to gather information about where different agencies had mapping priorities. This study allowed users to indicate for their programs which regions of ocean (nearshore and offshore) and Great Lakes had the most mapping needs in the near or longer term. When aggregated, the results can help us allocate resources efficiently, provide a means to reach out to other partners for coordination, and leverage funding assistance where there is a shared mapping need between organizations.

Participants entered mapping priorities throughout 2021 with an easy-to-use online tool developed by NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS). Building from other studies using the NCCOS tool, these results were combined and analyzed using geospatial tools to identify areas of greatest mapping priority, areas of overlapping requirements, and justifications for why mapping data is needed.

The study is now rolling out on a region-by-region basis, capturing the priorities of other stakeholders such as state governments, local governments, tribal governments, organizations, and corporations, private stakeholders, fisheries organizations, academia, and other groups. This is being done as a milestone activity under the National Ocean Mapping, Exploration and Characterization Strategy (NOMEC).

Abstract:
As harmful algal blooms (HABs) increase in magnitude and duration worldwide, they are becoming an expanding threat to marine wildlife. Over the past decade, blooms of algae that produce the neurotoxins domoic acid (DA) and saxitoxin (STX) and documented concurrent seabird mortality events have increased bicoastally in the United States. We conducted a retrospective analysis of HAB related mortality events in California, Washington, and Rhode Island between 2007 and 2018 involving 12 species of seabirds, to document the levels, ranges, and patterns of DA and STX in eight sample types (kidney, liver, stomach, intestinal, cloacal, cecal contents, bile, blood) collected from birds during these events. Samples (n = 182) from 83 birds were examined for DA (n = 135) or STX (n = 17) or both toxins simultaneously (n = 30), using ELISA or LCMS at the NOAA, National Marine Fisheries Service, Wildlife Algal-toxin Research and Response Network (WARRN-West) or the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). DA or STX was detected in seven of the sample types with STX below the minimum detection limit in blood for the three samples tested. DA was found in 70% and STX was found in 23% of all tested samples. The ranges of detectable levels of DA and STX in all samples were 0.65"681,190.00 ng g' 1 and 2.00"20.95 ng g "1, respectively. Cloacal contents from a Pacific loon (Gavia pacifica) collected in 2017 from Ventura County, California, had the highest maximum level of DA for all samples and species tested in this study. The highest level of STX for all samples and species was detected in the bile of a northern fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis) collected in 2018 from San Luis Obispo County, California. DA detections were consistently found in gastrointestinal samples, liver, bile, and kidney, whereas STX detections were most frequently seen in liver and bile samples. Co-occurring HAB toxins (DA and STX) were detected in white-winged scoters (Melanitta deglandi) in 2009, a Brandt's cormorant (Phalacrocorax penicillatus) in 2015, and a northern fulmar and common murre (Uria aalge) in 2018. This article provides DA and STX tissue concentrations andpatterns in avian samples and shows the utility of various sample types for the detection of HAB toxins. Future research to understand the pharmacodynamics of these toxins in avian species and to establish lethal doses in various birdspecies would be beneficial.

Abstract: According to the January 4 U.S. Drought Monitor, 99.6% of CA/NV is in drought, with 19.7% in Extreme (D3) or Exceptional (D4) Drought. The area in D3/D4 is down from 70.4% just one month ago, reflecting the barrage of storms that have brought rain and snow to the region since mid-fall. These storms have improved conditions but have not ended the drought. The current drought developed over many months to years and left huge water deficits.

The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) January 2022 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).

Title: Alaska's fire weather hotspot and its response to regional atmospheric circulation at weather and climate time scales

Presenter(s): Tom Ballinger, International Arctic Research Center (IARC)

Sponsor(s): Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) a NOAA RISA Team & Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC)

Seminar Contact(s): Tina Buxbaum (tmbuxbaum@alaska.edu, 907-474-7812), Danielle Meeker (demeeker@alaska.edu, 571-215-7083), Sean Bath (sean.bath@noaa.gov)

Abstract: Alaska's central and eastern interior (CEI), including the greater Tanana Valley and Yukon Flats, has consistently been the most fire prone area of the state during the last two decades. Toward operational and research applications, several surface fire weather indicators have been developed, such as the Buildup Index (BUI), and linked to CEI fire ignition, size, and spread. Beyond few analyses involving extreme fire years, studies have seldom examined the role of regional atmospheric circulation in modulating the region's fire weather conditions through time. Moreover, modern forecast models' skill in predicting such fire weather conditions is relatively low beyond a lead time of 10-14 days. This shortcoming creates numerous challenges for the fire managers attempting to mobilize resources for potential impacts. More complete understanding of atmospheric patterns and processes and their statistical linkages with fire weather at long-range weather-to-climate scales could thus be broadly useful to the fire community.

In this webinar, we will discuss historical relationships between regional atmospheric circulation and peak CEI fire weather conditions (e.g., BUI maxima) through the different fire season phases (i.e., wind, duff, drought, and diurnal periods) during the 1979-2020 period. We will first provide an overview of past fire studies conducted through a synoptic circulation framework. We will then introduce the updated Alaska Blocking Index (ABI), a metric that quantifies the overlying middle tropospheric flow. Subsequently, we will discuss the ABI's associations, at weekly-to-monthly lead times, to intraseasonal peaks in CEI fire weather conditions. Case studies detailing ABI conditions preceding extreme fire years will also be summarized. We will conclude with a discussion of paths forward and potential applications of the ABI and other regional ocean-atmosphere indices toward Alaska wildland fire prediction at lead times out to the seasonal scale.

Abstract: This talk will consist of several parts documenting some of the recent developments related to the satellite ocean color and visualization, as well as new data products and imagery routinely produced by the NOAA Ocean Color Research Team. One of often forgotten, but nevertheless important data sets for ocean color derivation and visualization, especially over the coastal and inland waters, is consistent and up-to-date global land mask data. In this part of talk, we will present an updated global land mask data set for the satellite ocean color retrievals, and will briefly discuss the methodology of deriving an improved land mask data set from multiple existing data sources. False color imagery has been historically used in vegetation monitoring, and land-water surface mapping. It is also especially valuable in monitoring and mapping the regional extents of floating vegetation, such as Sargassum algae. Recently, global false color imagery derived from one year of VIIRS SNPP data was used for floating algae survey and monitoring at the global scale. Here, we show some of more striking examples from the global survey, and discuss potential applications of multi-year global false color imagery. Recent abundance of satellite imagery from multiple sensor platforms present new opportunities to combine and create new types of imagery. In this part, we will show how to produce the near-surface clear sky imagery from daily global multi-satellite imagery time series, and present several examples of applications, including monitoring the evolution of algae blooms. Finally, we will also review some new/enhanced functionality and features of the NOAA Ocean Color Viewer (OCView).

Abstract:
The webinar will feature a recap of January conditions and Mike Johnson will provide an overview of the results of a NOAA Fisheries-led assessment of the climate vulnerability of marine, estuarine, and riverine habitats in the Northeast United States. The findings were published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE in December 2021. We found salt marshes, shellfish reefs, deep-sea corals, seagrasses, kelp, and intertidal habitats to be among the most vulnerable. The coastal habitats with the highest climate vulnerability are also those most often at risk from degradation due to coastal development and pollution. The assessment highlights the importance of prioritizing habitat protection and restoration to support resilience and adaptability to climate change. I will discuss some applications of the assessment results and next steps.

Abstract: If you've ever developed a user-driven research proposal, you know it takes a lot of conversations, coordination, and iteration " not to mention significant investment of time and resources. Partnerships are the heart of the collaborative science approach, and success depends on assembling the right team to engage, understand, design, and deliver results to meet users' needs. When getting started with a new collaborative science project, it's important to commit the time and resources necessary to foster relationships among team members, end users, and other partners, establish mutual understanding, and ultimately create a shared vision for what you want to accomplish.Join us for a discussion with two speakers from the NERRS who will share how their successful collaborative science efforts started. Speakers will highlight how small grants helped them explore ideas with partners that sparked future projects, and the importance of getting together, understanding one another's needs, and fostering relationships to do science that makes a difference.

Abstract:
Ecological connectivity of marine and coastal ecosystems is essential to linking our oceans' critical habitats, species, and natural processes. Beyond the movement of species, these connections sustain important ecosystem functions such as larval dispersal, nutrient cycling, and carbon sequestration. To help guide, enhance, and restore ecological connectivity of the ocean, the IUCN WCPA has released a new publication entitled Marine Connectivity Conservation Rules of Thumb' for MPA and MPA Network Design. This publication provides broadly applicable guidance on connectivity for MPA managers. This webinar will highlight several of the 13 Rules of Thumb' and how they can help guide integration of connectivity into conservation activities " ranging from interactions across the land-sea interface to the movement of currents and migratory species around the world and across political boundaries.

Abstract: Stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD) is a troubling disease that is spreading rapidly across the greater Caribbean region, but the etiological agent(s) and the mechanisms(s) of spread are both unknown. First detected off the coast of Miami, Florida, major ocean currents alone do not explain the pattern of spread, with outbreaks occurring across geographically disjunct and distant locations. This has raised concerns by researchers and resource managers that commercial vessels may contribute as vectors to spread of the disease. Despite existing regulatory and management strategies intended to limit coastal marine invasion risks, the efficacy of these measures is still unresolved for ship-borne microorganisms, and disease transport via ballast water and hull biofouling are under examination given the high ship traffic in the region. Here, to help inform the discussion of ships as possible vectors of SCTLD, we discuss large commercial vessels (hereafter ships), which transport cargo and people, as potential vectors for pathogens causing SCTLD, focusing particularly on ballast water. We do not consider all means by which ships can transport organisms or recreational vessels. We provide a brief overview of ballast water and relevant U.S. and international regulations on ballast water management and discuss some current efforts to evaluate ships as a potential vector for SCTLD.

Abstract:
The shallow nearshore zone adjacent to the shoreline is the most difficult coastal region in which to collect data, leading to a pervasive nearshore bathymetric data gap. This nearshore data void is so well known that it has been given a name: the coastal white ribbon. Unfortunately, the lack of shallow nearshore bathymetry presents impediments to a number of coastal science and management needs, ranging from inundation modeling to benthic habitat mapping to coastal resilience initiatives. Since no individual technology, platform, to data collection technique affords a complete solution to this challenge, multi-sensor/multi-platform approaches utilizing autonomous systems, UAS, aircraft, and satellites are of growing interest. This presentation will present results from a number of research projects focused on various platforms, sensors, and algorithms for addressing the nearshore data void.

Abstract: Multiple studies have documented regions of the genome that are highly differentiated among populations and are likely important for facilitating local adaptation. These regions, termed islands of divergence, hold many clues about how organisms adapt and how they may respond to future environmental changes. Here, I describe research we have conducted in two very different systems with the shared goal of understanding the mechanisms that facilitate local adaptation and create islands of divergence. First, I describe a project using genomic data from six riverine fish species found in the Upper Mississippi River to test the hypothesis that higher gene flow should lead to more prolific islands of divergence. Next, I discuss an ongoing study using whole genome resequencing to understand the mechanisms that have created islands of divergence in sockeye salmon. This seminar will serve as an introduction to islands of divergence that will include theory and empirical data from our research group. In future seminars throughout this spring other members of our research group will discuss the importance of islands of divergence in managed fish species such as Pacific cod and Pacific Ocean perch.

Bio(s): Wes is originally from San Diego in California where his passion for the ocean and fish was ignited during countless hours spent on outdoors activities such as scuba diving, kayaking, fishing and snorkeling, as well as deckhanding on a sportfishing boat. Wes received his BS in Marine Biology from the University of California-Santa Cruz and subsequently his PhD from the University of Washington. In his PhD Wes focused on applying genomic tools to study local adaptation of pacific salmon and inform fisheries management. After finishing his PhD in 2015, Wes worked as the Assistant Unit Leader of the USGS Wisconsin Cooperative Fishery Research Unit, where he led a research program that generated genetic information to inform fisheries management. In 2020, he started as the new program manager for the genomics program at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Juneau. His main research interests are applying genomic techniques to inform fisheries management and study local adaptation.

Abstract: The concept of gathering coastal zone and subaqueous soil survey data is not revolutionary but rather evolutionary. Initially, soil survey publications along the immediate coast overlooked many coastal soil areas and focused on "agricultural lands". Sparse soil survey work done through the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS) and continuous ongoing research by Universities since the 1990's has developed advanced mapping and classification protocols in coastal zone areas. Recent work has provided new updates to soil survey information along the coast, but still not to the extent or volume of information that is associated with subaerial soil surveys.
Coastal Zone Soil Surveys (CZSS) are soil inventory maps of nearshore or subaqueous soils (permanently submerged), along with adjacent subaerial / terrestrial soils which include tidal marshes, barrier islands / beaches, and some near lagoon mainland upland (non-hydric) areas. The current need for timely and reliable CZSS data such as spatial mapping, tabular data, blue carbon stocks and interpretations is widely recognized as critical for mitigating hazards, creating resources inventories, guiding restoration efforts, and tracking environmental changes. A major limitation to science-based management of shallow water habitats and near shore areas has been a lack of definitive information on the properties and spatial distribution of subaqueous and tidal marsh soils as well as more detailed soil data on adjacent terrestrial areas.
This presentation will highlight the how and why of CZSS and blue carbon mapping along with proposals for mitigating sea-level rise and saltwater intrusion in agricultural areas.

Abstract: Every day, NOAA is helping the nation address the challenges of climate change. As a key part of these efforts, NOAA is prioritizing equity considerations in the provision of our climate data, science, and services to people and communities across the nation. More specifically, we are working to address the significant service equity gaps in vulnerable and disproportionately impacted communities, including those living in the most exposed and hazardous areas and those that have the fewest resources to plan and respond. In many ways, this effort is mirrored in the broader climate community, including internationally. For instance, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is working to enhance gender equality and inclusivity and improve representation of developing countries in its processes. Furthermore, equity issues are at the core of UN-sponsored climate negotiations and were recently front and center at the recent Conference of the Parties (COP26). Specifically, the climate convention, like many UN agreements, includes a provision that recognizes the fundamental difference between wealthy nations, who have primarily caused the climate change problem through their release of GHG emissions, and poorer nations, who have historically not contributed large amounts of GHGs and are inherently more vulnerable to climate impacts.
Ms. Barrett has been working on climate issues for over 20 years, including as a federal leader, climate negotiator, and, currently, as NOAA's Senior Climate Advisor and an IPCC Vice-Chair. Drawing on this experience, Ms. Barrett will discuss the consideration of equity in climate science and policy, how that has evolved over time, and what the future could look like. Further, she will share her unique perspectives on the importance of integrating equity into everything we do, if we hope to effect lasting change.

Bio(s): Ms. Barrett currently serves as the NOAA Senior Advisor for Climate. She is widely recognized globally as an expert on climate policy, particularly on issues related to climate impacts and strategies to help society adapt to a changing world. Ms. Barrett provides strategic advice and scientific leadership for climate research, applications, and services to coordinate and integrate activities across NOAA's portfolio of climate-related programs to enhance the effectiveness of NOAA in meeting climate mission goals. She is also currently serving as a Vice Chair for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a role she has held since 2015. Prior to her current role, Ms. Barrett served as the NOAA Research Deputy Assistant Administrator for Programs and Administration, where she supervised daily operations and administration of several major NOAA research programs, including the Climate Program Office, Ocean Acidification Program, and National Sea Grant College Program. Ms. Barrett has also served as deputy director of NOAA Research's Climate Program Office. In addition, for over fifteen years, she served as a member of U.S. delegations charged with reviewing and adopting scientific assessments undertaken by the IPCC, and as the lead U.S. climate adaptation negotiator to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Ms. Barrett was instrumental in negotiating the Global Framework for Climate Services under the World Meteorological Organization and was NOAA's climate representative to its Executive Committee and Congress for many years. Before joining NOAA, she was the Global Climate Change Program director at the United States Agency for International Development. Bio source: https://www.noaa.gov/our-people/leadership/ko-barrett

Abstract: FathomNet is an open-source image database that can be used to train, test, and validate state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms to help us understand our ocean and its inhabitants. Ocean-going platforms and instruments are integrating high-resolution camera feeds for observation and navigation, producing a deluge of visual data that rapidly outpaces researchers' abilities to process and analyze them. Recent advances in machine learning enable fast, sophisticated analysis of visual data, but have had limited success in the ocean due to lack of data set standardization and insufficient availability of existing, expertly curated imagery. FathomNet addresses this need by aggregating images from multiple sources to create a publicly available, expertly curated underwater image training database. Inspired by annotated image databases such as ImageNet and COCO, FathomNet aims to establish the same kind of reference data set for images of ocean life. The long-term goal of FathomNet is to aggregate >1k fully annotated and localized images per marine species of Animalia (>200k), with the ability to expand and include other underwater concepts (e.g., substrate type, equipment, debris, etc.) for training and validating machine learning models. We hope that contributions from the broader community will realize our goals for FathomNet.
