Title: Happy as a Clam: Ecology and photosymbiosis of giant clams (Sub-famliy: Tridacninae) in Palau (2022 Knauss Fellows' Lunch & Learn Series)

Presenter(s): Lincoln Rehm, 2022 Knauss Fellow, NOAA / NMFS, Office of Science and Technology

Sponsor(s): NOAA's Central Library (NCL)

Seminar Contact(s): Library Seminars

Remote Access: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7490657583050005006

Abstract: Giant clams (Sub-family: Tridacninae) are a group of bivalves that live in symbiosis with dinoflagellates (Family: Symbiodiniaceae) across Indo-Pacific coral reefs. These dinoflagellates are some of the same genera and species that can be found in neighboring coral reefs. Both coral and clam hosts acquire most of their energetic needs via photosynthesis however they use two very different mechanisms to maximize the absorption of light. The goal of my research is to establish a modern baseline of giant clam populations in the Republic of Palau and explore the photosynthetic mechanisms which enable these bivalves to thrive in shallow, nutrient poor coral reefs.
Keywords: photosymbiosis, giant clams, conservation

Bio(s): Lincoln is a current PhD Candidate in Environmental Science at Drexel University. He is currently placed in NOAA's Office of Science & Technology as a data governance and policy fellow. His research focus is on the conservation and photobiology of the giant clam. Before starting grad school, Lincoln worked at Palau International Coral Reef Center as a researcher studying the effects of climate change and conservation and near-shore resources. Outside of work, Lincoln enjoys bouldering, basketball, and board games.

Abstract: The models used to provide quantitative advice for the management of marine fish populations are evolving from a paradigm of individual research projects, to a paradigm of community-developed and centrally supported models to support high quality, standardized assessments and facilitate advancements in research. Here I will tie together four narratives regarding my involvement in this evolution. One is my 40-year history in the development and support of the Stock Synthesis assessment model. The second is the ten-year history of the Center for Advancement of Population Assessment Methods. Third is a new NMFS effort to build a next generation assessment model, Fisheries Integrated Modeling System, as a modular platform involving the efforts of team members from all Centers. Finally, I will reflect on the NOAA wide efforts to build models that link climate, oceanography, ecosystems, and managed species.

Title: Fostering convergence to address complex Arctic climate challenges: Identifying opportunities with the Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) Program


Presenter(s): Twila Moon, Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO)

Sponsor(s): NOAA/OAR/Climate Program Office and the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP)

Seminar Contact(s): Genie Bey (genie.bey@noaa.gov), Alison Hayden (abhayden@alaska.edu)

Remote Access: https://uaf-accap.org/event/identifying-opportunities-nna/

Abstract: Convergence research brings together diverse participants to craft " together " new languages of understanding and form new perspectives and solutions pathways around complex societal challenges and opportunities. Convergence is an intentional, careful process requiring relationship building and open sharing of individual perspectives so that groups can create integrated pathways to make progress together, often towards community-level activities or applications. Rapid climate change in the Arctic is causing unprecedented environmental shifts that are intrinsically connected with complex social and community activities and concerns, from food security to infrastructure, conservation to geopolitics. The NSF-funded Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO) is supporting new and future Arctic-focused convergence research. One activity of support is development of four Convergence Working Groups that will bring together researchers, local experts, and engaged community representatives to work together on a focused, self-formed project; for example, hosting community workshops, creating shared Arctic Data Center portals, developing policy briefs, or crafting science storytelling products. The Convergence Working Groups themselves will attempt to apply convergence concepts and act as test beds and examples for best practices. The process for Working Group formation has already been available for community feedback, with an ongoing workflow aimed to solidify areas of focus and participation by early 2023. Join this webinar to find out more about convergence research, formation and activities of upcoming Convergence Working Groups, and broader opportunities for cross-community interaction within the NNA-CO.

Title: Economic Valuation Trainings and Project Consultations: Lessons Learned

Presenter(s): Dr. Lauren Knapp, CSS Inc. On Contract to Office for Coastal Management, Economist and Kate Quigley, Office for Coastal Management, Economist

Sponsor(s): NOAA Central Library and NOS Office for Coastal Management

Seminar Contact(s): library.seminars@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/195191224816267280

Accessibility: Captions are added to the recordings of presentations once uploaded to the NOAA Central Library YouTube Channel. Sign language interpreting services and closed captioning are available, but need to be requested at least 5 days before the event.

Abstract: There is an increasing need for state and local partners to conduct economic valuation analyses to capture the benefits of projects, programs and products and submit benefit cost analyses to access funding from federal agencies like the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA). In many cases, partners conducting and commissioning benefit valuation studies and federal funding applicants are non-economists. The NOS Office for Coastal Management offers trainings and consultation to help community partners understand economic terminology, identify appropriate economic analyses based on project objectives and expertise, determine questions to ask an economic consultant, and do simple valuation analyses. In this presentation, we reflect on recent lessons learned, in an effort to continue to better help non-economists commission or conduct studies in the most effective way possible.

Keywords: economics, valuation, benefit-cost analysis

Bio(s): Dr. Knapp is an environmental economist trained in various methods from cost-benefit analysis to ecosystem services valuation and stated preference estimation. On contract to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management (OCM) since 2020, she helps on efforts to value marine economies, train local communities on how to use economics to inform their decision-making, capture benefit data for natural coastal infrastructure, comprehensively value U.S. coral reefs, and use economics to inform other related efforts.

Kate Quigley is a natural resource and environmental economist with the Office for Coastal Management in NOS. Areas of expertise are benefit cost analysis, policy analysis, and blue economy accounting.

Slides, Recordings, Other Materials: A recording will be available after the webinar on the NOAA Central Library YouTube channel.

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1092803929435388687 Abstract
Understanding why habitat restoration is, or isn't, viewed as successful is a critical piece of evaluating completed projects and garnering support for future projects. Ecological measures alone may not fully describe the success or shortcomings of restoration projects, and public perceptions of success may be based on an entirely different set of metrics. In fact, restoration metrics rarely include human dimensions even though community support for restoration can make or break potential future projects, and affect long-term success of completed ones.Using South Slough NERR (Oregon) and other restoration projects in the region as case studies, this project deployed a three-pronged approach to understand and improve estuarine restoration outcomes, which includes synthesis of long-term monitoring data, comparisons between manager and public perceptions, and interviews to understand efficacy of ecological metrics. In this webinar, the project team will talk about their approach to understanding restoration success, summarize their findings on the values and perceptions associated with estuarine restoration, and share recommendations for including social and ecological metrics in future restoration projects.

Abstract: Heat has been known to be the deadliest atmospheric hazard across the US over recent decades. Our vulnerability to the heat, however, has decreased somewhat, as health care has improved, air conditioning has become more prevalent, and much greater awareness exists. Nevertheless, recent extreme heat waves across the globe have shown that populations can still be significantly affected by the heat. Moving forward, what can we expect in terms of how societies can cope with these events, and whether we can adapt to an increasing frequency, duration, and intensity of heat waves in the decades to come?

Abstract: National Estuarine Research Reserves across the nation work to address key coastal management questions to help scientists and communities understand challenges that may influence future policy and management strategies on our coasts. The NERRS Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship program provides opportunities for university graduate students to conduct research at reserves that can help address these questions. Through their fellowships, they participate in NOAA-provided career-focused training and professional development opportunities like the NERRS Annual Meeting or GOMCON. During this time, they are also building their professional contacts with their fellowship class, professionals across the reserve system, and throughout NOAA. In the Gulf of Mexico, Davidson Fellows at each of the five Gulf Reserves are in the process of completing their 2 year research fellowships. Working with their Reserve mentor, the fellows have conducted some exciting research at our gulf sites. In this session, each fellow will share some specifics about their research, how they worked with the reserve and their findings. Through their work, the fellows are improving our understanding of our Gulf of Mexico estuaries and bringing together universities, communities and reserves to help solve key coastal management questions.

Seminar Contact(s): Amanda Sheffield (amanda.sheffield@noaa.gov), Joel Lisonbee (joel.lisonbee@noaa.gov)

Abstract: Wildfire season across the Southwestern U.S. has begun, with multiple destructive fires burning in Arizona and New Mexico. Across the U.S., over 1 million acres have already burned this year. Drought's relationship to wildland fire is complex, but the current drought combined with this summer's climate outlooks show high potential for elevated significant wildland fire in the Southwestern U.S. including California. Wildfires have far reaching impacts, including threats to human safety, degrading regional and national air quality, stressing water management, and local economic losses across a variety of sectors including recreation.

The Drought Update and Wildfire Outlook Webinar for California and the Southwest will provide timely information on the current drought status and outlook and wildland fire potential outlook. Additionally, this webinar will cover the Living with Fire resource as well as an emphasis on how to find wildfire and smoke risk information throughout wildfire season.

This webinar is a special joint region webinar, combining the California-Nevada DEWS Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar Series, which is produced in partnership with the California-Nevada Applications Program (a NOAA RISA team), and Southwest Drought Briefings, which are produced by the Intermountain West DEWS and the USDA Southwest Climate Hub as part of the Southwest Drought Learning Network.

Location: Webinar
Description:

NOAA Science Seminar Series

Presenter(s): Steven Manaoakamai Johnson, Arizona State University

Sponsor(s): NOAA National MPA Center and OCTO

Remote Access: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_A1QpSGLGQAmz3srqm16Tpw

Abstract:
A fundamental challenge in ocean conservation is translating the results of climate models into forms that managers and others can use to plan for the future. Using techniques from information theory, the Ocean Novelty (ONo) Index provides a simple and intuitive way to understand how climate change will alter key ocean biogeochemical variables. This measure can help MPA managers know what they need to prioritize in their planning and design policies and regulations that help their MPA keep pace with expected shifts in the ecosystem state. This webinar will share how the ONo Index is calculated and walk through an application for large MPAs. We will also be asking attendees to share their experiences and challenges using climate change data and scenarios in their MPA planning.

Title: NOAA's Role in the Whole-of-Government Effort to Address the Climate Crisis
Part of the NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminar (NELS) Series. These webinars are open to the public, in or outside of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Presenter(s): Wayne Higgins, Ph.D.; Director of NOAA's Office of Oceanic Research, Climate Program Office

Remote Access: Please register at:
https://noaabroadcast.adobeconnect.com/higgins/event/registration.html
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Sponsor(s): This event is part of the NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminar (NELS) Series with sponsorship from the NOAA Science Council. The NOAA-wide NELS provides examples of NOAA's leadership in environmental science, by those who lead it and make it happen. The NELS are presented as part of the NOAA Science Seminar Series For NELS questions, contact nels@noaa.gov.

Abstract: Since its inception in 1970, NOAA has built a strong, foundational climate service driven by state-of-the-art research using essential global observations to deliver the information the nation needs to understand and respond to climate change. The agency is poised to receive a once in a generation infusion of investments over the next decade through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the disaster supplemental, the Build Back Better Act (pending passage) as well as the FY22 and proposed FY23 budget. Through these investments, NOAA will support a whole-of-government effort to address the climate crisis and promote economic development by building a Climate Ready Nation by 2030. NOAA recognizes that the impacts of climate change fall disproportionately on underserved communities, which requires a renewed commitment to equity and environmental justice. The agency is committed to delivering products and services in a way that is effective, equitable, and advances environmental justice, supportive of Executive Order 14058: Transforming Federal Customer Experience and Service Delivery to Rebuild Trust in Government. As the Director of NOAA's Climate Program Office, Dr. Higgins is responsible for advancing the agency's top climate priorities, which include establishing the agency as the U.S. Federal government's authoritative source for climate products and services. This environmental leadership seminar will examine the actions that NOAA and the Department of Commerce (DOC) are taking to address the climate crisis. From this discussion, participants will learn how the White House, DOC, and NOAA's activities (intra-agency, interagency and international) are accelerating the whole-of-government effort to combat the climate crisis with targeted investments aimed at building resilience in the face of climate hazards.

Abstract: Exploration and research in the 93% of our planet's ocean that lies deeper than 200m is typically conducted by only a handful of countries with the required financial and personnel resources. But just how many countries actually have the capacity to access and work in the deep ocean? This knowledge is essential to make deep-sea exploration and science more inclusive and equitable. The Global Deep Sea Capacity Assessment is a baseline survey of the technical and human capacity for deep sea science and exploration in every coastal nation with deep waters (200m+) around the world. The assessment, conducted throughout 2021, was led by Dr. Katy Croff Bell, National Geographic Explorer and Founder of Ocean Discovery League. This assessment is the broadest survey ever conducted on current capabilities to explore and study the deep sea, including more than 120 countries, of which 100 were developing economies and Small Island Developing States. In addition to the survey responses, the results include detailed research conducted by a global team of research assistants.

Bios: Dr. Katy Croff Bell (President and Founder, Ocean Discovery League), Dr. Diva Amon (Director and Founder, SpeSeas), and Maud Quinzin (Capacity Assessment Project Manager, Ocean Discovery League).

Abstract: Together, the Weather Program Office (WPO) Social Science Program (SSP) and the National Weather Service continue to evaluate how best to transition social science research findings into applications and share operational challenges to inform research. Through various engagements1,2, WPO learned that R2X misunderstandings exist among the social and physical research and operational communities. By implementing meaningful process changes, WPO SSP will highlight recommendations and best practices for transitioning social science research by emphasizing knowledge transfer and nurturing trust between researchers and operational practitioners.

Keywords: social science, R2X, transitions

Bio(s): Dr. Gina Eosco is a social scientist and risk communication expert managing NOAA's Weather Program Office's Social Science and Forecasting a Continuum of Environmental Threats (FACETS) Programs. Gina's focus is on prioritizing social and behavioral science (SBS) research needs within the weather community, determining ways to translate social science research into applications, and learning from operational meteorologists and practitioners to understand the next research challenge. She is an active member of both the American Meteorological Society, as well as the National Weather Association and is also the 2019 recipient of the AMS Award for Early Career Professional Achievement. Dr. Eosco earned her M.S. and PhD in weather risk communication from Cornell University, and a B.S. in Environmental Science and Policy from the University of Maryland.

Dr. Castle Williams is a contractor supporting Dr. Gina Eosco and the WPO Social Science Program as the Social Science R2X Coordinator. Prior to joining WPO, Castle was a research assistant and Co-PI in the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia, where he conducted research-to-applications (R2X) social science research related to weather risk and visual communication. His dissertation offered a definition of message consistency' for the weather enterprise and explored the implications of inconsistent Convective Outlook graphics on lay public end users. Using his personal experiences with the NOAA grant process and his knowledge of NOAA transition plans as an academic researcher, Castle brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to the R2X process, and more importantly, aims to improve this process for principal investigators that wish to translate and transition social science research into various NOAA applications. Dr. Williams earned his M.S. and PhD in Geography from the University of Georgia, and a B.S. in Geography, a B.S. in Psychology, and an Atmospheric Sciences certificate from the University of Georgia.
