Abstract:
Understanding why intraspecific diversity arises and how populations adapt to spatial variation in environmental conditions continues to be a major focus of evolutionary biology. Recently, inversion polymorphisms have become an active area of research focused on understanding how sympatric local adaptation occurs especially when adaptation occurs at microgeographic scales (i.e., below the scale of gene flow). However, we are still lacking a comprehensive understanding of the conditions needed for an inversion to aid in adaptation and how well we can detect them empirically. To address these gaps, we analyzed empirical whole-genome-sequencing data and morphometric data of ecotypes of a highly-mobile marine fish, Atlantic cod, from the US Gulf of Maine (GOM) and Iceland and compared results to theoretical expectations for the role of inversions in adaptation with forward-time simulations. By using simulations that both incorporate flexible inversion characteristics and combine quantitative and population genetic mathematical frameworks, our simulation set unites these two fields and provides a unique, more realistic perspective on the way inversion polymorphisms influence genome architecture and local adaptation. Empirically, we show GOM cod are more closely related to coastal Iceland cod and our sampling lacks evidence for a true migratory cod ecotype in the GOM. We show that in Iceland four major inversion polymorphisms underlie adaptation within our two sampled populations within Iceland. Theoretically, we show that inversions facilitate adaptation under high gene flow within a narrow range of conditions: 1) when a trait is polygenic (i.e., high mutation rate and small mutation effect sizes on the trait) and 2) when the evolving trait was under strong selection. By testing a wide range of parameters and comparing with empirical data, our results give us a more robust understanding of the genomic architecture of local adaptation and the specific conditions needed for inversions to play a role in adaptation under gene flow.

Bio(s): Sara Schaal's dissertation research focuses on the genomics of ecotype evolution, with a focus on the economically and ecologically important species Atlantic cod. Broadly, her research interest is in applying molecular techniques and computer simulations to understand the underlying genomic architecture of within-species adaptation. Sara will be joining Dr. Ingrid Spies in Seattle to start a postdoctoral fellowship for NOAA this coming spring where she will be co-advised by Dr. Spies and Dr. Wes Larson at NOAA in Alaska. Once there, she will be helping to create a GT-seq panel for Pacific cod and evaluate population structure in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea using both genomics and otolith microchemistry.

Abstract: Phragmites is generally disliked and often removed in restoration projects in the mid-Atlantic and New England. However, this plant performs many useful services that are unappreciated" (1) it provides habitat for many fishes in tidal marsh creeks (though perhaps somewhat inferior to native species). (2) It provides habitat for many benthic invertebrates in and on the substrate of tidal marshes, (3) It reduces pollution by sequestering toxic metals, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide (i.e. blue carbon) more effectively than native marsh plants. (4) It protects nearby towns and communities from storm surge and flooding more effectively than native marsh communities, since it tends to grow denser and taller. (5) Marshes are facing an existential threat from sea level rise. Most importantly, therefore, in this era of sea level rise, Phragmites enables a marsh to elevate faster by producing more litter and trapping more sediments, thus giving the marsh an increased chance of elevating fast enough to keep up with sea level rise. Most of these services have been known for up to two decades, yet little if anything has changed in management of this plant.

Abstract:
The NOAA Climate Program Office's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program invests in research and engagement that expands regional capacity to adapt to climate change in the U.S. RISA's regional teams build sustained relationships between decision makers and researchers that support collaborative and equitable adaptation to climate risks. In Fiscal Year 2021, the RISA program launched 9 new 5-year RISA teams. This webinar series is a venue to introduce each team, discuss major themes and partners, and preview the projects that will advance climate knowledge and adaptation capacity in their regions.RISA's Intermountain West region includes the states of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The RISA team, Western Water Assessment (WWA), is based at University of Colorado Boulder, the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), the University of Wyoming, and the University of Utah. This RISA team's vision is to build water sector and community resilience to compound hazards in the Intermountain West, with a particular focus on underserved Indigenous and small rural communities and utilities. By carefully constructing their activities, WWA will also advance resilience science from theory to practice. The team has developed an integrative set of 10 projects and other research and integration activities that draw on their 20-year history of climate adaptation research and activities in the region, and the deep interdisciplinary social and natural science expertise in their team. Their research projects fit within two themes: resilient water systems and resilient communities, and they will integrate tracking of resilience metrics to identify needs and opportunities and evaluate their success in building resilience. The team will also conduct a small-grant competition to develop a network in Wyoming to build resilience of underserved communities and leverage successes to inspire other communities to engage in climate adaptation actions.

Bio(s):
Dr. Bent Duncan is Western Water Assessment's Managing Director and is responsible for directing and managing the daily and long-term activities of the operations, setting strategic direction for the program in consultation with the PI team, and interfacing with sponsors and stakeholders. She also conducts research at the intersection of science and society, with a focus on sustained climate assessment and better connecting scientific information related to weather and climate with decision-makers. Prior to assuming the Managing Director role, Bent was Western Water Assessment's Climate Assessment Specialist, one of a small network of scientists at RISAs across the country working to advance sustained climate assessment.
Prior to joining WWA, Bent worked at the science-policy interface with the California Ocean Science Trust. There, she collaborated with scientists, managers, and stakeholders to develop usable science around California's coast and ocean, with a particular focus on marine protected areas and climate change. Prior to that, as a postdoctoral fellow in UCAR's Postdocs Applying Climate Expertise (PACE) program, Bent led development of ocean climate change indicators for Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. The project brought together over 50 researchers and managers, and it led to the first set of climate change indicators specifically developed for a national marine sanctuary. Bent received her MS and PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of Colorado, and her BS in Atmospheric Science from the University of California Davis.

Dr. Ben Livneh grew up in Ontario Canada. He earned his first two Civil Engineering degrees at the University of Western Ontario. He earned his Ph.D. degree at the University of Washington under the guidance of Dennis P. Lettenmaier, where he worked on a wide range of problems related to large-scale computational hydrology. His dissertation focused on the development of the Unified Land Model (ULM)--a merger of two operational models: the Sacramento Soil Moisture Accounting Model and the Noah Land Surface Model. During his time in Seattle, Ben also taught several courses at Seattle University. He now leads a research group in the department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering and he is also a Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) fellow. Professor Livneh's research group addresses physical hydrology problems across multiple scales. Major research themes include physically-based hydrologic model development, land-cover/land-use change, snow hydrology, and hydroclimatology. The group is focused on applying models in innovative ways that integrate remote sensing and in situ observations to understand how changes in climate and land cover will affect water availability at the land surface. Professor Livneh frequently interacts with scientists at the Western Water Assessment, with the departments of Geography, INSTAAR, and ATOC.

Abstract:
Growing interest in the maritime heritage resources of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (the sanctuary), such as shipwrecks, has raised important questions about how to best safeguard these artifacts and facilitate access for non-consumptive users. Fishing gear impacts have been identified as the primary threat to shipwrecks in the sanctuary (ONMS 2010, 2020). This study uses semi-structured interviews to assess the effectiveness of methods used to communicate about shipwreck guidelines, the impact of location disclosures on fishing practices, and general perceptions of shipwreck protection efforts.

ABSTRACTAlthough fisheries challenges evolve rapidly, historical approaches may provide new tools for managers. In the state of Washington, the Makah Tribe have used ibud, their traditional fishhook, to target Pacific halibut long before the advent of modern fisheries. We describe our experience in rediscovering this historical harvesting method, testing the species selectivity, refining the approach, and producing a tool ready for application in modern fisheries management. Over nearly a decade, we were able to uncover substantial traditional knowledge in the community. Turning this knowledge into a reproducible and consistent product for testing proved difficult. Initial attempts to deploy the gear using commercial longlines encountered a range of challenges, but suggested refinements for further research. Subsequent experiments in recreational fisheries were successful due to the lessons learned during initial work. Our experience may be of value to others hoping to investigate historical methods with potential for addressing modern problems.
BIO
Jonathan Jon Scordino has worked as the Marine Mammal Biologist for the Makah Tribe since 2007. Most of Jon's research focuses on marine mammals, but occasionally he is able to lead or assist co-workers on research of other species. One project that was extra special was the opportunity to study the Makah Tribe's halibut hook, the cibud. The Parker family of the Makah Tribe recognized Jon's many years of conducting research and helping to protect Makah treaty rights by giving him the name Cibuqsas, which translates to All about halibut hooks. It is rare for the Tribe to give a non-Makah tribal member a name and is a great honor.

Title: Diving into the barf! New insights into Ao (Christmas Shearwater) foraging ecology from Hlanik (Kure Atoll)

Presenter(s): Ilana Nimz, Ecologist at Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge

Sponsor(s): NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries

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

Abstract: Ten years of active management on Hlanik (Kure Atoll) have yielded numerous successes. Primary restoration objectives for Hlanik included invasive species management, establishing native plants, removing marine debris and monitoring ecosystem changes. While a challenging location to conduct work, the successes achieved from the decade of habitat restoration on the island are undeniable. Join ecologist Ilana Nimz as she shares ten years of conservation efforts at Hlanik before focusing on the cryptic and understudied Ao (Christmas/Chocolate shearwater; Puffinus nativitatis), one of the US Fish & Wildlife Service's 2021 Birds of Conservation Concern. The protected waters of Papahnaumokukea MNM are critical for Ao, as foraging grounds abundant with larval fish and protected from fisheries facilitates the recovery of the shearwater populations in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

This presentation is part of the Third Thursday By the Bay Presentation Series at Mokuppapa Discovery Center, which 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.More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
NOAA has over 100 dive units with over 330 divers, including 15 NOAA Ships and over 430 NOAA Small Boats across the nation. These dive units are responsible for maintaining water level stations, ship husbandry, services critical to safe navigation, and much more. NOAA Divers operate in diverse environments across the country, but is the water safe to dive in?NOAA Divers face a number of risks each time they enter the water, including contamination that can pose acute or chronic risks to diver health. NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products & Services (CO-OPS) developed the web-based NOAA Diving and Small Boat Operations Safety GIS application (DASBOS Tool) to support pre-dive and small boat risk assessments through analysis of recent and historical water quality data. In addition, the DASBOS Tool provides water level stations (with basic meteorological data), hyperbaric chambers, hospitals, boat ramps, and marinas. This decision support tool allows divers and boaters to efficiently complete in-depth desktop reconnaissance with a single map that integrates both recent and historical data sets from a variety of sources. Equally important to the map itself is the digital backbone supporting it. The tool is an ArcGIS Online application hosted by the NOAA GeoPlatform, enabling cross-agency collaboration. Several CO-OPS data layers are updated directly from the Google Sheets maintained by operational units themselves, making data management easy and transparent. Python-based web-scraping optimizes external datasets, like those of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that provide critical water quality information.The NOAA DASBOS Tool has already demonstrated its value. Last fall, after consulting the tool, CO-OPS averted a dive mission near Lake Charles, Louisiana because of potential water contamination in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. In the larger NOAA community, the tool is being incorporated into existing planning procedures that support the maintenance and operations of NOAA's fleet of ships and small boats. The DASBOS Tool is now publicly available and utilized by the US Navy and EPA Divers. We encourage you to utilize the DASBOS Tool for your own operations and safety planning. This new application is a powerful example of the capabilities GIS has to inform critical decisions and mitigate health risks.

Bio(s): Josh Fredrick (LTJG/NOAA): DASBOS Tool Creator & Project Manager. LTJG Fredrick is a NOAA Corps Officer, currently serving as the NOAA Small Boat Program Executive Officer in Seattle, WA. In six years with the NOAA Corps, he served in dive leadership roles at every duty station. While at NOAA's Center for Operational Products and Services (CO-OPS) in Chesapeake, VA, he was the Hydrographic Support Officer and Unit Dive Supervisor (UDS). Aboard NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette in Honolulu, HI, he served as the Navigation Officer and Ship Dive Officer. The DASBOS Tool was born while LTJG Fredrick served at CO-OPS with incredible support from the CO-OPS GIS Team and Field Operations Division. Karen Kavanaugh: DASBOS Tool Lead GIS Developer & Key Contributor. Kavanaugh is an Oceanographer at NOAA's Center for Operational Products and Services (CO-OPS). She worked for 10 years as the product coordinator for NOAA's operational harmful algal bloom forecasts and has recently transitioned to working on other coastal hazards, including hurricanes, tsunamis, and high tide flooding. She is also a member of the CO-OPS GIS team.Slides / Recording: Slides and recording will likely be shared with all who register for the webinar.

Abstract:
Acoustic-trawl (AT) surveys of the Chukchi Sea during summers 2012 and 2013 determined that pelagic fishes were dominated by age-0 Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida), with few adults present in the region. This suggests that either survivorship of age-0 fish is very low or that they emigrate to other areas as they grow. To evaluate the role of the region as a nursery for these age-0 fish, we conducted AT surveys in 2017 and 2019 and repeat acoustic surveys from autonomous surface vehicles in 2018. Throughout this period, bottom-moored echo sounders continuously measured fish abundance and movement at several locations. These observations indicate that the abundance and species composition of midwater fishes on the Chukchi Sea shelf is highly variable over seasonal and interannual time scales. Seasonally, abundance was very low in winter, increased in May, and reached peak abundance in late summer. In all years, the highest abundance in summer was observed in the northern Chukchi. The distribution of age-0 gadids is predominantly driven by transport, and an increase in age-0 pollock abundance in 2017 and 2019 suggests that environmental conditions now enable species from the south to colonize the Chukchi Sea, at least on a seasonal basis.

Bio(s): Robert Levine is a PhD Candidate in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. His research uses acoustic methods to investigate the changing pelagic fish community of the Alaska Arctic over large spatial and temporal scales, with a focus on the role of transport in shaping species distributions. His PhD work is being done in collaboration with the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center as part of the North Pacific Research Board's Arctic Integrated Ecosystem Research Program. Previously, Robert worked as a contractor for the Midwater Assessment and Conservation Engineering program at AFSC where he began working with the autonomous acoustic systems he utilizes in his current research.Slides / Recording: Slides and recording will likely be shared with all who register for the webinar.

Abstract: 50 years ago, the U.S. ushered in a new era of ocean conservation by creating the National Marine Sanctuary System. Since then, we've grown into a nationwide network of 15 national marine sanctuaries and two marine national monuments that conserve more than 620,000 square miles of spectacular ocean and Great Lakes waters, an area nearly the size of Alaska. Your national marine sanctuaries and monuments support coastal communities and drive local economies by providing jobs and opportunities for people to discover, recreate, and form life-long connections with these spectacular places. Sanctuaries connect people and communities through science, education, and stewardship. We rely on these networks to inspire community-based solutions that help us understand and protect our nation's most spectacular habitats, marine life, archaeological wonders, and cultural seascapes.Learn more about how we look to the future to continue saving these spectacular places and ensure the National Marine Sanctuary System remains a source of pride and enjoyment for all Americans.

Abstract: Every fourth Wednesday since February, the webinar has featured experts on a topic related to abandoned and derelict vessels (ADVs). The goal of the series was to help communities through sharing perspectives from across the country on common ADV issues and solutions. Our speakers were specialists from federal, state, and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, universities, and industry, and discussed topics about communications, funding, policy, and successes and challenges under blue skies and storm conditions. This month is the final webinar in the series. Our October speakers will focus on discussing a policy white paper developed while establishing a new ADV program in Virginia. In addition, the NOAA Marine Debris Program will provide a brief overview of their ADV InfoHub and look for suggestions to further develop this tool to better serve you.

Recordings: Recordings of previous Salvaging Solutions webinars have been posted on our website. Links to the recordings are available in the "Resources - Links" box or under "Past Salvaging Solutions Webinars" at the bottom of the page.

Abstract: Measurements of aerosol chemical composition at the Barrow Atmospheric Baseline Observatory northeast of Utqiavik, Alaska have been conducted since 1997 to assess the impacts of the transport of pollutants from lower latitudes on Arctic atmospheric chemistry and climate. These measurements have been conducted alongside NOAA GML's observations of aerosol optical properties. Here we report on trends in Arctic haze aerosols in terms of composition, optical properties, and transport pathways. Between 1998 and 2013, haze season submicron non-sea salt sulfate and nitrate decreased by 2 and 1% per year, respectively. Supermicron nitrate decreased by 3% per year. Between 1998 and 2020, haze season submicron aerosol light scattering decreased by 1.6% per year and total scattering (particles less than 10 microns in diameter) decreased by 1.1% per year. Aerosol light absorption has also decreased during the haze season. Based on trajectories calculated with HYSPLIT, these decreasing trends appear to be due, at least in part, to a decrease in transport from the European sector to the Arctic. Summertime trends will also be discussed.

Bio(s): Trish Quinn (patricia.k.quinn@noaa.gov) is the Atmospheric Chemistry Group (ACG) Lead at NOAA PMEL. The Atmospheric Chemistry Group has been making shipboard measurements of aerosol chemical, microphysical, optical, and cloud-nucleating properties for over 30 years. The resulting global ocean database can be found at https://saga.pmel.noaa.gov/data/. ACG has also made long-term measurements of aerosol composition at NOAA's northern hemisphere monitoring sites including Barrow. These data can be found at

Abstract: The Research Network Activities for Sustained Coordinated Observations of Arctic Change (RNA CoObs) project seeks to support the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON) Roadmap for Arctic Observing & Data Systems (ROADS). Through meetings, collaborations, and partnership with the Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) Food Security Working Group (FSWG) and other partners, the project will step through the elements of ROADS, including the identification of Shared Arctic Variables tied to societal benefits as defined by the FSWG, the capture of requirements for observing activities aimed at SAVs, and the design and adaption of information infrastructure. With a focus on the Pacific Arctic the project is meant to help explore and demonstrate how an internationally coordinated roadmap for Arctic observing can be put into action. A number of NOAA Alaska/Arctic activities are of relevance in this context, including NOAA's leadership in regional ocean observing, the U.S. Arctic Observing Network, and the Distributed Biological Observatory. The food security observing roadmap will guide observing activities in the Pacific Arctic and inform the ROADS process at the pan-Arctic scale. ROADS will then better serve operators, the research community, and decision-makers in their own efforts.

Bio(s): Hajo Eicken is Professor of Geophysics and Director of the International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. His research focuses on sea ice geophysics, Arctic coastal processes, and their importance for human activities and ecosystems. In Alaska he has helped lead efforts to advance collaborative research with Indigenous knowledge holders and to enhance use of scientific data by Arctic communities and government agencies. He worked with a number of colleagues to establish a sea-ice observatory at Utqiavik/Pt. Barrow. Other collaborative efforts include his involvement in helping launch the Arctic Sea Ice Outlook and Sea Ice Prediction Network, co-leadership of the Arctic Observing Summit, and member of the Science Advisory Board for the 3rd Arctic Science Ministerial.

Abstract: While many communities are developing strategies to mitigate and manage heat, these efforts are often siloed, lack coordination, and have unclear evaluation criteria. To better address increasing heat risk, communities must prioritize and integrate heat across their network of plans which includes comprehensive plans, climate action plans, hazard mitigation plans, heat response plans, and emergency management plans. This session will provide examples of innovative cities that have worked to address chronic and acute heat risk across their network of plans, better connecting traditionally siloed disciplines to improve their heat planning efforts..

Abstract:
With rapidly warming temperatures, diminishing sea ice cover and loss of glacial mass, the Arctic can be viewed as a bellwether of global climate change. While Arctic change has been documented and projected in terms of changes in mean temperature, changes in extreme events have received less attention. Extreme temperature often causes serious impacts on natural and societal systems. In this study we investigate the frequency of extreme daily temperatures, defined as departures of more than 2 standard deviation from the historical mean(1981-2020), and the projected changes of these events in the future assimilated by the phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6).Three study areas are of particular interest: the Arctic, the Alaska, and the Eastern North America. The projected changes vary regionally and show a strong dependence on the selected forcing scenario, i.e. Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs). We also examine the correspondence between changes in the mean and changes in the frequency of extreme temperature events.

Abstract: Measuring quantities of eDNA is fast becoming a preferred method of learning the presence and abundance of fish and other aquatic species. But how much water need one filter and how much DNA need one process to obtain a reasonably complete and reproducible answer? Tests of an eDNA metabarcoding protocol for marine bony fish show more water, more species of fish up to levels tested. Amplifying decreasing amounts of extracted DNA yields progressively fewer species. Species represented by more copies (reads) of their DNA are detected more reproducibly and with less variation than lower-read species. Findings are consistent with Poisson distribution of rarer eDNA. We also vary PCR cycles, sequencing depth, primer concentrations, and primers. Our findings have multiple practical implications, including for survey strategies for both common and rare species, and identify some limits of knowledge and research directions for aquatic eDNA science.

Bio(s): Dr. Mark Stoeckle's research interests include environmental genomics, DNA barcoding, and visual representation of information. Dr. Stoeckle helped organize the early meetings that laid the foundation for DNA barcoding, a standardized method for rapid identification of animal and plant species. His DNA barcoding work with high school students has attracted wide attention including front-page articles in New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal. Since 2017 he has been helping develop environmental DNA as a technology for monitoring marine fish and other sea life. He published the first time-series eDNA study of the lower Hudson River estuary in 2017, and helped organize the first National Conference on Marine eDNA, held at Rockefeller University in 2018. He recently led the largest eDNA-bottom trawl study to date in collaboration with colleagues at Monmouth University and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Dr. Jesse Ausubel directs The Rockefeller University's Program for the Human Environment, which aims to elaborate the technical vision of a large, prosperous society that emits little harmful and spares large amounts of land and sea for nature. Mr. Ausubel initiated and helped lead the Census of Marine Life, Barcode of Life Initiative, and International Quiet Ocean Experiment. In 2000 President Clinton appointed him to the President's Panel on Ocean Exploration. An adjunct scientist of WHOI, he delivered the US Naval Academy's 2015 Michelson Lecture and hosted the 2016 National Ocean Exploration Forum. Mr. Ausubel serves on the Clean Ocean international Expert Group of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and on NOAA's Science Advisory Board.

Abstract: The Pacific Arctic is rapidly changing due to ocean warming, sea ice loss, and increased advection via the Bering Strait. These physical changes have been linked to climate-mediated range shifts of juvenile and adult subarctic and Arctic fish populations, though less is known about how the earliest life stages (larvae) will respond. In this study, we analyzed time series(2010-2019) data of larval fish distributions sampled in the late summer relative to ocean conditions in the northern Bering (NBS) and Chukchi Sea region (>60N). Multivariate analyses revealed the presence of 3 distinct multi-species assemblages across all years: 1) a warmer-water (7.4C), lower latitude assemblage dominated by yellowfin sole (Limanda aspera); 2) a colder-water (<4.6C), higher latitude assemblage dominated by Arctic cod (Boreogadussaida), Bering flounder (Hippoglossoidesrobustus), and other common Arctic species; and 3) a mixed assemblage(4.6x<7.4C) comprised of the dominant species from the other two assemblages. Partial least squares models found that the areal coverage of the warmer-water assemblage expanded further into the Chukchi Sea in years with higher NBS sea surface temperature (SST), strong Bering Strait northward advection, and increased southerly winds, while the colder-water assemblage retracted its areal coverage in those years. Conversely, the colder-water assemblage expanded in years with lower Chukchi Sea SST and greater sea ice area and extent. Additionally, we observed a general northward latitudinal shift of all three assemblages in recent warm years (2018-2019) characterized by strong northward winds and advection. The patterns observed over the past decade in the NBS-Chukchi Sea region document how quickly larval fish communities track environmental change and provide further evidence of climate warming contributing to a borealization of the Arctic fish community.

Bio(s): Kelia Axler is a research fisheries biologist at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center where she studies climate-mediated shifts in distribution, community structure, and ecology of larval and juvenile Northeast Pacific and Arctic fishes.

Abstract:
Extratropical cyclones give rise to most of the high impact weather near Alaska, including heavy precipitation and strong winds. Thus it is important for many stakeholders to be warned of approaching periods of increased or decreased potential of storm activities. While individual cyclone tracks can be predicted out to about a week or so, from week 2 on, statistics summarizing cyclone activity, or storminess, are more useful. Storminess can be defined based on Lagrangian cyclone tracking or by Eulerian variance statistics. The outlook includes a combination of both methods. Lagrangian cyclone tracks provide information about where cyclones pass through and are more intuitive to users, while Eulerian variance statistics are expected to be more predictable and have been shown to be highly correlated with cyclone related weather. The outlook uses 6-hrly sub-seasonal forecasts from GEFSv12 and CFSv2. Hindcasts and operational forecasts from 1999-2016 have been used to assess the prediction skill. Our results show that the combined ensemble has higher skill than either individual ensemble. The combined ensemble shows good skill in predicting cyclone amplitude and frequency for week 2, and some skill in predicting these metrics for weeks 3-4. Models also show some skill in predicting the statistics of deep cyclones for week 2. For both week 2 and weeks 3-4, the prediction skills for an Eulerian sea level pressure variance storminess metric is significantly higher than those for Lagrangian track statistics. We expect that the skills for real time forecasts should be higher than those in the hindcasts since the operational ensembles are much larger than the hindcast ensembles. A publicly accessible web page will be developed to display the subseasonal predictions in real time. The web page will also contain information on climatology and forecast verification to enable users to make more informed use of the outlook.

Abstract: The marine phytoplankton Synechococcus thrives in various light niches in part due to its varied photosynthetic light harvesting pigments. Synechococcus cells use a form of color vision that maximally senses blue and green light to control a process called Type 4 chromatic acclimation (CA4). Cells use the process of CA4 to tune the ratio of two chromophores, green-light absorbing phycoerythrobilin (PEB) and blue-light absorbing phycourobilin (PUB), in their light harvesting complexes or phycobilisomes. We are using molecular tools to study how Synechococcus cells adjust their PEB to PUB ratio within the phycobilisomes in response to changes in the ratio of blue to green light during CA4 and how this system is regulated. We are also investigating the prevalence of CA4 in the marine environment, its ecological role, and its evolution.

Abstract: Sea ice predictions at subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) time scales have become important products for stakeholders. For example, the NWS Alaska Region requires sea-ice forecasts for the next few weeks to seasons. The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) has been providing sea ice predictions for week-2 to 9-month target periods based on an experimental sea ice prediction system (CFSm5) consisting of the Climate Forecast System (CFS) atmospheric component and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory Modular Ocean Model version 5 (MOM5). Sea ice in CFSm5 is initialized from a MOM5-based CPC sea ice initialization system (CSIS). Sea ice forecasts from CFSm5 are significantly better than that from the operational CFS. The NWS Alaska Region uses these CPC sea ice predictions to provide guidance to the DOI, USCG and other partners. CPC's sea ice predictions are also regularly used by Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) in Alaska Region Climate Outlooks. The recent successful development and improvement of the coupled Unified Forecast System (UFS) by the Dynamics and Coupled Modeling Group of the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) provided an opportunity for CPC to upgrade the CFSm5 to a UFS-based model for the S2S sea ice predictions. In this talk, we report our progress in the use of UFS in sea ice predictions. The final goal is to provide improved real-time week-3/4 and seasonal sea ice outlooks. We will present two major efforts with the UFS: (1) Experiments to adjust cloud parameterizations to reduce model errors in sea surface temperature and sea ice coverage and (2) An evaluation of sea ice predictions based on hindcasts completed with the UFS and comparisons with operational CFS, CFSm5, and observations. The potential of using a multi-model ensemble based on UFS, CFS, and CFSm5 will also be discussed.

Bio(s): Dr. Wanqiu Wang's principal interests are improving predictions of climate anomalies in the earth atmosphere-ocean-ice-land system at subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) time scales, and diagnosing predictability of S2S climate variability and understanding of systematic biases in coupled atmosphere-ocean dynamic forecast models. Dr. Wang received a PhD. degree in atmospheric sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1996. From 1997-2004, Dr. Wang worked at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) environmental modeling center (EMC). Dr. Wang joined the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) in May 2004. The focus of his work is understanding predictability and improving predictions of Tropical intraseasonal and interannual variability, and Arctic sea ice. Dr. Wang has been serving as the chief of the CPC Operational Monitoring Branch of CPC since August 2019.

Abstract: Long-term studies of humpback whales in two key habitats within the United States EEZ, were essential to the establishment of two National Marine Sanctuaries (Stellwagen Banks and the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuaries). These studies also provided the foundation and inspiration for two unprecedented, ocean-basin studies of humpback whales in the North Atlantic Ocean (YONAH project) and the North Pacific Ocean (SPLASH project). The results of the two projects have provided new insights into the complex lives of humpback whales and their use of entire ocean basins. In addition, the two areas have become focal points for understanding how humans impact whales throughout all oceans, and have stimulated actions to reduce those impacts. This discussion will focus on the similarities and differences in humpback whales in the Hawaii and the Atlantic. More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
The NOAA Climate Program Office's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program invests in research and engagement that expands regional capacity to adapt to climate change in the U.S. RISA's regional teams build sustained relationships between decision makers and researchers that support collaborative and equitable adaptation to climate risks. In Fiscal Year 2021, the RISA program launched 9 new 5-year RISA teams. This webinar series is a venue to introduce each team, discuss major themes and partners, and preview the projects that will advance climate knowledge and adaptation capacity in their regions.RISA's Carolinas region includes North Carolina (NC) and South Carolina (SC). The RISA team, Carolinas Collaborative on Climate, Health, and Equity (C3HE), is based at NC State University, the NC State Climate Office, UNC Chapel Hill, Furman University, NC Central University, NC Sea Grant, SC State University, and the NC Museum of Life and Science. C3HE will build upon years of regional work on climate science, tools and assessments to move into a new phase that centers Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) principles at the forefront of NOAA-funded climate research and to deliver climate futures to more communities than have been previously served. They will apply a bottom-up participatory action approach to develop a transferable model for end-to-end co-production of actionable and equitable climate resilience solutions in at-risk communities in the Carolinas. The team's aims include: Aim 0. Demonstrate our commitment to address the climate reality in a just and equitable way, while ensuring the inclusivity and diversity of all voices are represented in every aspect of our work in the Carolinas; Aim 1. Build and enhance local partnerships in underserved communities across the Carolinas to identify, test, and refine equitable solutions for climate resilience; Aim 2. Understand and predict how co-occurring and consecutive hazards interact with exposure and vulnerability to shape climate risk; Aim 3. Identify and connect the complex linkages between structures of power, intersecting social positions, and climate-health inequities in vulnerable communities; and Aim 4. Design and implement community-sciences programs to track physical and social science metrics and build community-level climate resiliency literacy. Learn more at https://climate.ncsu.edu/c3he/RISA's Alaska region includes all parts of the vast state of Alaska. The RISA team, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP), is based at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.ACCAP's portfolio of interwoven research and engagement in Alaska will support the underlying vision of building healthy and thriving Alaskan communities. Core themes include extreme events and impacts and capacity building in support of Tribal resilience. In the extreme events work, the team will use an integrated scientific approach that brings together social science, climate science, and local expertise to: a) document socio-economic impacts of extreme climate and weather events in Alaska; b) engage practitioners to determine and meet information needs; and c) analyze historical and projected changes in extreme event occurrences to inform policy and decision-making. The work will support Tribal resilience by: a) bridging community-level climate adaptation planning and implementation with workforce and economic development; b) investigating and supporting boundary spanning and knowledge co-production between Alaska Native communities and climate and related researchers; c) innovating evaluation methodology and elevating Indigenous evaluation of climate-related knowledge co-production and climate adaptation. Hallmarks of new outreach and engagement activities in this project include assessment products that encompass societal impacts and adaptation, training for students and postdoctoral fellows, online course development, and enhanced convening activities with a focus on serving the needs of policy-makers, Alaska Native Peoples, tribes, and organizations throughout the state. This team includes a sustained assessment specialist and small-grant competition, which like the core portfolio, aims to fulfill ACCAP's vision of thriving Alaskan communities, economies, and ecosystems.

Abstract: Ocean Acidification (OA) is an important manifestation of global climate change, a result of anthropogenically increased carbon dioxide in the oceans. OA has the potential to negatively affect Alaska's Blue Economy by changing ocean chemistry, which could have impacts on culturally and commercially important species. Research conducted by the Ocean Acidification Research Center (OARC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) scales the intensity, duration, and extent of OA events around the state. Projects in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Chukchi Sea, and Beaufort Sea will be presented and include observations from long-term autonomous monitoring, repeat hydrographic projects, and modelling efforts. The 10-year collaboration between the UAF's OARC and NOAA's EcoFOCI to outfit the Bering Sea biophysical mooring site 2 (M2) will be highlighted. The OARC outfits NOAA's surface mooring at M2, affectionately known as Peggy, with instrumentation to monitor carbonate system variables. As a result, Peggy, in addition to NOAA's core biophysical observations, is part of a worldwide network to gather long-term data on carbon dioxide in the ocean and how OA is progressing in different regions.

Abstract: Each winter, humpback whales from across the North Pacific head to Hawaiian waters to breed and raise their young. Within the islands, the nearshore waters along the western shoreline of Maui, Hawai'i are a favored nursery region for mothers and their young calves. Over the past twenty years"the Keiki Kohola Project"a small, grassroots research organization based on Maui, has been working to provide information to help ensure the well-being of mothers and calf pairs during this critical nursery period.Between 2015 and 2017, dramatic increases in water temperatures in the North Pacific severely impacted the region's marine ecosystem. These impacts included the food supplies on which Maui's humpback whales depend. Join Dr. Rachel Cartwright to learn how Maui's mothers and their calves weathered these lean years. We provide up-to-date information on their current status, and finally we focus on how humpback whale mother and calf pairs.More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract: The California Current is a highly productive ecosystem with several ecologically and economically valuable fisheries. Local oceanographic phenomena like upwelling and basin-scale environmental perturbations like El Nio/La Nia cycles can impact all levels of the food web; however, the propagation of these effects through trophic levels is largely unknown due to a poor understanding of linkages between microbes, plankton, and metazoans. Here, we present data from a multi-year time series of microbial metagenomes, metabarcoding, and ocean chemistry to show how microbiomes correlate with phytoplankton and metazoan community dynamics. We used metagenome-assembled genomes and gene functions to characterize microbial communities and connect them to higher trophic level community composition. Using supervised machine learning methods, we found season- and depth-dependent microbiomes can predict distinct phytoplankton regimes, particularly diatom vs dinoflagellate dominated surface waters. We also found strong correlations between microbes and coccolithophore (E. huxleyi) abundances. This connectivity is driven by microdiverse heterotrophic microbial lineages including SAR324 and Nitrosopumilus. These combined omics approaches provide a holistic overview of marine ecosystems and may improve biological oceanographic modeling of environmental perturbations in the future.

Bio(s): Nastassia Patin got her Ph.D. at Scripps Institution of Oceanography where she studied the chemical ecology of marine sediment bacteria and their bioactive compounds. She then did a postdoc with Frank Stewart and Kostas Konstantinidis at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, where she worked in a variety of marine systems to understand the role of the microbiome in ecosystem health and function. She focused on applying metagenomic and bioinformatic tools to recover high-quality genomes of uncultured marine microbes and link them to biotic and abiotic processes. In 2020,, she joined AOML where she currently works with Kelly Goodwin to leverage eDNA sequence data from the California Current to understand linkages among microbes, plankton, and metazoans while advancing Omics efforts more broadly at NOAA. In her free time Nastassia enjoys surfing, biking, cooking, and hanging out with her two cats.

Abstract: Understanding and estimating the economic impacts of policies related to commercial and recreational fisheries is required by law under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. To fulfill this requirement, economists at NOAA Fisheries develop custom regional input-output models for use in analyzing the baseline economic contributions from commercial and recreational fisheries, and the economic impacts resulting from proposed or actual policy changes. In this webinar, NOAA Fisheries economists will describe the process of creating the models using IMPLAN software with examples from both commercial and recreational fisheries.

Bio(s):
Dr. Lovell is an economist with the Office of Science and Technology, NMFS, in Silver Spring, MD. Her work focuses on economic analysis of recreational marine fisheries and survey design and implementation. She has been leading NMFS's nationwide recreational angler expenditure surveys since 2008 and is co-author of a number of reports and publications on the economic contributions of angler expenditures as well as analysis of angler preferences.Scott Steinback is an economist with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center in Woods Hole, MA. Scott's research primarily focuses on developing economic impact and benefit/cost modeling approaches for application to commercial and recreational fisheries management issues in the Northeast and across the country. Scott constructed the first regional input-output model employed by NMFS and the approach continues to be used to assess regional shore-side impacts of proposed commercial fishing management policies.
