Abstract: Corals and sponges create the most important biogenic habitats in the deep sea and support ecosystems of incredible variety and biodiversity. These ecosystems are also vulnerable to human impacts and are recognized as important conservation targets. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) established the Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program in 2009 as the first U.S. program dedicated to providing scientific information to inform the management of these deep-sea ecosystems. The Program focuses on: 1) developing alliances and partnerships; 2) conducting 3-4year regional field research and analysis initiatives on deep-sea biogenic habitats; and 3) creating frameworks for data and information to guide management. Over the last decade, our program and partnerships have supported integrated research initiatives and smaller targeted projects in every U.S. region, from the Bering Sea to the U.S. Caribbean, and from New England Seamounts to American Samoa. This talk draws from our recently published Report to Congress, highlighting results from research initiatives off the U.S. Southeast and West Coast, and showing how our Program's work is catalyzing U.S. deepwater conservation. As we enter our second decade, deep water ecosystems will face new challenges from expanding economic activities in offshore waters and changing ocean conditions. As we launch our next research initiative in Alaska, we are exploring ways that our research, partnerships, and approaches can meet these challenges and advance deep-sea conservation.

Bio(s): Dr. Hourigan is the Chief Scientist for NOAA's Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program. His work over the last 30 years has been at the intersection between science and conservation in both the United States and internationally. In addition to leading development of deep-sea coral programs at NOAA, Dr. Hourigan represented NOAA on marine issues at the Convention on Biological Diversity from 1997 to 2002 and coordinated NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service's components of NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program from 2001 to 2007. Prior to coming to NOAA, he was the Senior Policy Advisor for Climate Change and Biodiversity at the U.S. Agency for International Development. Dr. Hourigan received his doctorate from the University of Hawaii, working on the ecology of coral reef fishes and held an Affiliate Faculty appointment at the Department of Environmental Science and Policy, George Mason University.

Ms. Rachel Bassett. After receiving a degree in Public Relations from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Rachel worked in the corporate arena for 4 years before deciding that science was her true calling. Rachel received her B.S. in marine biology and her M.S. in Environmental Studies, both from the College of Charleston. During her master's work she completed a project at the SC Department of Natural Resources where her focus was on conservation biology, specifically fisheries management and marine protected areas. She is currently the lead video analyst at NOAA NCCOS Deep Coral Ecology Lab and is passionate about anything that will help conserve and protect our ocean resources.

Dr. Meredith Everett is a Research Biologist, NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center. She holds a Ph.D. in marine biology from the Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) at the University of Miami. Applying genetic and genomic tools, she has worked on marine organisms ranging from tiny picoeukaryotes and phytoplankton to salmon to coral. Her current research focuses on using genetic and genomic tools and techniques to study deep-sea coral and sponge communities, to better understand their composition and distribution as well as their importance as habitat to fish and other invertebrates. As part of this work, Meredith has been developing environmental DNA (eDNA) approaches to understand the biodiversity in deep-sea communities.

Abstract: How is extreme heat experienced and how can it be measured? There are a variety of methods and approaches to measure heat, from satellites, mobile transects, stationary observations, to wearable sensors. Each can provide important information and context to the urban heat effect and its impact. Extreme heat is a subtle hazard that is felt differently across the nation. This session will highlight the range of experience of heat across the US.

Bio(s): Jen Runkle, NC State University: Environmental Epidemiologist at North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies, North Carolina State University, Dr. Jennifer Runkle is a trained environmental epidemiologist who serves as a research scientist at NC State's North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies (NCICS) and the Cooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (CISESS) within the academic arm of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information. Her research is focused on using causal science to rapidly understand how, when, and where local interventions may best be leveraged to reduce climate-health inequities in underserved communities.
Brian Garcia, Warning Coordination Meteorologist (NOAA/NWS): Brian has been a professional meteorologist for 16 years, beginning his career within the private sector before joining the federal government with the National Weather Service. Weather was not always forefront on Brian's mind, but did play a role in everything he did. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, mountain and marine meteorology were critical to his recreation. From climbing and backcountry snowboarding to surfing and camping, everything revolved around weather. Once this connection was made, Brian was off into the world of weather. Brian is a graduate of the University of Washington and has followed positions to Houston, DC, Eureka CA, and now in Monterey CA. In his current role as the Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the NWS SF Bay Area / Monterey Bay regions, he is tasked with building partnership across a diverse sector of communities. Through this role he translates technical weather information for partner agencies to take action on in order to protect lives and property. He also is allotted the opportunity to work with NOAA on projects such as the Urban Heat Island Campaign. Outside of work you'll typically find Brian in the waters of Santa Cruz, surfing as much as possible.
Cameron Lee, Kent State University: Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, Kent State University, I am a climate scientist with research interests mainly in applied climatology, focusing on utilizing synoptic methods in a variety of applications (especially human health/mortality and coastal environments), often incorporating climate change. Current NOAA-funded research utilizes synoptic climatology to examine various human health-related multivariate indicators of climate change, while another NOAA-funded project uses circulation patterns to help predict daily-scale sea-level variability. Previous grant-based research includes projections of future heat waves and heat-related mortality in California due to climate change, and assessing the impacts of weather on asthma in New York State. Earlier research has included the development of a gridded air mass classification system, which is now updated annually, includes daily forecasts, and has been expanded to a global domain (with nearly 260,000 locations). This system was also transformed into two global-scale indicators tracking our changing climate. In addition to my research activities, I have co-authored five review articles on the topic of synoptic climatology, reviewed grant proposals for the National Science Foundation, served as a peer-reviewer for over a dozen academic journals, and have presented my research at dozens of national and international conferences. I also serve as the Managing Editor of the International Journal of Biometeorology.

Abstract: Collaborative science and the co-production of science involve working closely with partners at every stage - from conceptualizing a new project, to conducting the research, to refining tools to best meet a management need. The goal is to encourage mutually beneficial exchanges between researchers and resource managers. Essential to collaborative science is building relationships and engendering trust among the partners. NOAA's NERRS Science Collaborative and RESTORE Science programs support collaborative science through funding and partnerships around protected and at-risk coastal and ocean areas. This webinar, the first jointly hosted event between the NERRS Science Collaborative and RESTORE programs, will feature a panel discussion among three contributors to the programs, highlighting important lessons learned and experiences on how to become effective co-producers of science.About NERRS Science Collaborative: The National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative supports science for estuarine and coastal decision-makers. Managed by the University of Michigan Water Center, through a cooperative agreement with NOAA, the Science Collaborative coordinates regular funding opportunities and supports user-driven collaborative research, assessment, and transfer activities that address critical coastal management needs identified by the reserves.
About RESTORE: The NOAA RESTORE Science Program was authorized by Congress in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to carry out research, observation, and monitoring to support the long-term sustainability of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem, including its fisheries. The Science Program supports teams of resource managers and researchers committed to work together to produce science that helps answer the questions resource managers are facing.

Abstract: The NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) Satellite Oceanography and Climatology Division (SOCD) OceanView(OV) is a web-based visualization application delivering an integrated display of remote sensing, in situ, and model output data over oceans, coastal waterways, and inland bodies of water. OV's objective is to assist both expert and general public users in understanding the diverse water bodies in space and over time, both from a synoptic and an event-scale perspective. The OV incorporates data and products primarily from NOAA and some non-NOAA partner sources, spanning satellites, airborne and field platforms, and environmental modeling output. Various datasets produced by the SOCD science teams and distributed publicly either via the SOCD CoastWatch program or other online media comprise the bulk of the information presented in OV. Other data include products, images, or information from ESA CCI, NASA WorldView, EU CMEMS, USGS, NOAA NCEI, and NASA EONET. OceanView 1.0 was publicly released on 19-May-2021 at https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/socd/ov/. This release was the culmination of nearly two years of work, from vision to design and implementation. An enhanced version 1.1 with an improved timeline widget and bell icon for changelog notification was released on 19-Jun-2021. Besides serving the satellite remote sensing community and ocean enthusiasts, the OceanView will contribute to global earth observing activities led by SOCD, including the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Coastal Observations, Applications, Services and Tools (COAST) Ad Hoc Team, as well as the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Blue Planet and AquaWatch initiatives. These efforts are directed to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The presentation will brief on modern integrated mapping approaches and provide a live demo and outlook.

Bio(s): Prasanjit Dash is a remote sensing scientist with over 20 years of experience in terrestrial infrared satellite applications. Since 2006, he has been with NOAA NESDIS STAR SOCD and the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere of Colorado State University (CSU CIRA), excluding mid-2016 to 2017 when he contributed to the Copernicus Sentinel-3 mission at EUMETSAT. Prasanjit received a Ph.D. in Physics from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, in 2004 and an MBA from College of Business, Colorado State University, USA, in 2017.

Abstract: In what has been a long project, detailed information on seafloor compositions, habitats, physical properties is now available for all US waters, and indeed for the global ocean. Over four million observation sites are held in the dbSEABED system, which is currently helping many major projects, and is seeking to assist programs even more widely. The US East, Gulf Mexico, and Western margins, Alaska and the Arctic are especially well covered with data, and more data is constantly being added. Parameters include grainsize, hard/soft seabed types, CaCO3 and OrgC contents, seabed strengths, roughness, and grain-type and feature occurrences.Recent applications include deep-water ecology under wind-farms (NY),sustainable fisheries (AK), habitat patchiness (FL to TX), benthic-pelagic coupling (MEX to NC), human impacts (CAN), sonar performance, and human-objects burial (DEU). High efficiencies on system buildout and high accuracies on the data products have been achieved by incorporating math/computing methods, and calibrations of the information processing at all stages. A brief guide to the system will be given, while inviting new projects and collaborations.

Bio(s): Chris Jenkins is an INSTAAR Senior Researcher in ocean environmental computing. Major project is the world mapping of ocean substrates/habitats using modern and legacy data, with applications in underwater acoustics, benthic ecology, biogeochemistry and stratigraphy.

Abstract:
We present the current workflow in developing a Global Fish Stock Assessment for SOFIA and identify issues in estimating this globally important metric indicating status of stocks into three categories: i) overfished, ii) fully sustainably fished, and iii) underfished. We highlight how a new assessment package SRAplus can be used to get better estimates of regional and country estimates of overfishing categories using effort data and depletion priors based on external data. Transparency issues are highlighted and a transparent assessment framework (TAF) is used to implement a modular workflow for SOFIA (TSAF).

Abstract: Bathymetry data managers at NCEI preserve, manage, and make bathymetry data accessible to the public via the NCEI data viewer. The archive houses ~60 terabytes of (uncompressed) bathymetric data. The team works with providers--guiding them through organizing, packaging, and submitting bathymetry data to the archive.With the event of global mapping initiatives such as the National Ocean Mapping, Exploration, and Characterization Strategy (NOMEC) and the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 project, NOAA is seeking new partners to make progress on these mapping goals. In response, IOCM created a data submission form for potential new data providers, which connects them directly to IOCM and NCEI bathy data managers.

NCEI offers tools to make data submissions easier such as the "Submitting Data Guidelines", a stand-alone packaging tool called "CruisePack", and of course the assistance of the data managers themselves. Looking forward, NCEI is redesigning their multibeam ingest pipeline, which will allow for improved reliability, greater ease of ingesting new data, greater flexibility in allowed data formats, and simplify data delivery to users. Additionally, the NCEI bathy team is in the process of hiring two additional people to bulk up the team in anticipation of large volumes of incoming bathymetry data.

Bio(s): Christie Reiser, along with NOAA's NCEI bathy team, archive bathymetry data that comes to NCEI. She works with data providers such as federal agencies, private sector companies, academia, as well as international partners. She offers data providers assistance in getting their data to NCEI, shows how to package it properly, and sees the data through the archive process. Christie also assists customers in need of data--making those data and information more accessible. She works on several interagency and international working groups that strive to make data more accessible and make data contribution an easier process.

Title: Seagrass Meadows: Unsung Heroes in Combating Climate Change?

Presenter(s): Aurora M Ricart, Ph.D., Post-doctoral Researcher at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences and Melissa Ward, Ph.D., Post-doctoral Researcher at San Diego State University

Sponsor(s): NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries

Seminar contact: Claire.Fackler@noaa.gov, (805) 570-1113

Remote Access: Register for webinar at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3279807318147465485

Abstract: Seagrass meadows can be found from the tropics to the arctic circle, with over 60 species in total. These meadows form the foundation of many marine food webs, while also serving to improve water quality, stabilize sediment, and buffer storm surge. More recently, scientists are investigating seagrasses as a natural-based solution in combating climate change. Research, including that of Drs. Aurora M Ricart and Melissa Ward, suggests that these habitats contribute to long-term climate mitigation through sediment carbon sequestration, while also serving to ameliorate the impacts of ocean acidification. In this talk, they will explore the capacity of seagrass ecosystems to help mitigate climate change effects and discuss the implications for the conservation and management of these coastal ecosystems.

Abstract: The Rapid Refresh Forecast System (RRFS) is NOAA's next generation convection-allowing ensemble and is currently planned for implementation in the last quarter of 2023. The planned configuration for RRFS is ambitious and its development requires substantial computational resources. The system will cover North America at 3 km grid-spacing with 65 vertical layers having 36 members deployed for its data assimilation system and a subset of 9 members for the free forecast. The RRFS will be hourly-updating and feature forecasts out to 18 hours every hour with extensions to 60 hours 4 times per day. To develop such a system requires computational resources beyond those available on currently deployed on-prem systems.
Cloud-based high performance computing (HPC) capabilities have grown over the past several years and it is apparent that cloud HPC has a role in research and development of our numerical weather prediction systems, and perhaps in operations. In this talk we will describe our recent and ongoing work in developing and testing, in real-time at NOAA testbeds, a prototype RRFS ensemble forecast system using cloud infrastructure.

Bio(s): Jacob Carley received his PhD from Purdue University in 2012 as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow on the topic of hybrid 3DEnVar convective-scale radar reflectivity assimilation. Following his PhD he joined EMC as a postdoc where he worked on data impact studies for renewable energy applications. Later he joined IM Systems Group where he worked on data assimilation for the Real Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA) and North American Mesoscale (NAM) systems. He joined the federal workforce in 2018 and is currently a physical scientist within EMC's Modeling and Data Assimilation branch where he leads the collaborative Rapid Refresh Forecast System (RRFS) development project at EMC.

Title: Where the Water is Shallow and the Current is Strong: Stone Fish Weirs of the Eastern Woodlands (Submerged NC Series)

Presenter(s): David Crandord, PhD

Sponsor(s): Monitor NMS Submerged NC webinar series. Submerged North Carolina is part of the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series.

Seminar Contact(s): Shannon.Ricles@noaa.gov

Remote Access: Register for the webinar at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1687330748755457551.

Abstract: Though often overlooked, stone fish weirs are relatively common archaeological features in many swift-flowing rivers and streams above the fall-line across the eastern Unites States. Often seen as V or W-shaped stone alignments, these highly efficient fishing structures were used extensively throughout the pre-colonial and historic periods, some potentially dating back millennia and represent an important part of our cultural landscape.For a variety of reasons, stone fish weirs have received only intermittent attention from the archaeological community and are rarely the focus of systematic surveys. New improvements in the quality and accessibility of satellite based imagery, like Google Earth, have made the identification and recording of fish weir sites possible on a regional scale. Join Dr. David Crandford, Assistant State Archaeologist for the North Carolina Office of State Archaeology, to learn about the many different types of fish weirs that can be found world-wide and how their shapes help determine where they are located. Learn about archaeological approaches to studying fish weir sites and hear about some of the initial findings and insights of the North Carolina Fish Weir Archaeological Project that has documented more than800 potential fish weirs.

Bio(s): David J. Cranford, PhD: David Cranford is a North Carolina native and developed an early interest in the archaeology and histories of the Indigenous peoples of the Southeast. David received a BA in Anthropology at Appalachian State University and an MA from the University of Oklahoma before completing his PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. David's doctoral research examined the various strategies individual Catawba Indian households use to survive and persist in the immediate aftermath of one of the worst smallpox epidemics in the historic record (ca. 1760 " 1800). While at UNC, David also worked as a research and teaching assistant for the Department of Anthropology and served as a field supervisor for various field projects including in North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Peru.David joined the OSA in March 2018 as an Assistant State Archaeologist. He provides environmental review and technical assistance for counties in the Southern Piedmont, as well as promotes public outreach and education of archaeology across the state. In addition, David manages the North Carolina Fish Weir Archaeological Project and is a member of the OSA scientific diving program.His other research interests include the archaeology of North Carolina, public archaeology, ceramic and lithic analysis, and the application of GIS in archaeology. David also serves as the editor for the North Carolina Archaeological Society which publishes the annual journal, North Carolina Archaeology.For more information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Title: The World Does Not Stand Still - Understanding the Impacts of Climate Change in Papahnaumokukea

Presenter(s): Dr. Dan Polhemus, Aquatic Ecosystems and Environmental Contaminants program manager at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Pacific Islands

Sponsor(s): NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries

Abstract: Current and future impacts from climate change are considered to be the single greatest threat to the long-term integrity of Papahnaumokukea. The effects of climate change are already being observed, with rising sea levels leading to shoreline retreat, increasing ocean heat content producing more frequent and severe coral bleaching events, and a more westward trajectory for tropical cyclones inflicting severe damage to certain atolls, notably Lalo (French Frigate Shoals). Current modelling indicates that all these stressors will continue to impact the Monument to progressively greater degrees going forward, producing major resource management challenges. A climate change vulnerability assessment for the Monument was completed in 2016, and the managers are now moving forward to convert this into an action plan that will facilitate future climate adaptation.This presentation is part of the Third Thursday By the Bay Presentation Series at Mokuppapa Discovery Center that is the visitor center for Papahnaumokukea Marine National Monument in Hilo, Hawaii. This State of the Monument lecture series is also supported by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
