Abstract: Rockfishes (Sebastes spp.)of the California Current Ecosystem are live-bearers and exhibit variation in the frequency of reproduction and fecundity. We analyzed a 20+ year time series of fecundity data in central California and manipulated temperature and food in the lab to show how reproductive output correlates with body condition and is influenced by the environment. Our results improve estimates of population reproductive potential, important for management.

Bio(s): Sabrina Beyer is a NMFS/ Sea Grant Population and Ecosystem Dynamics Fellow, and Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Sabrina has been affiliated with the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, Fisheries Ecology Division since 2009. She uses quantitative empirical and theoretical methods to study how spatiotemporal variation in ocean conditions influences the reproduction of marine fishes. Her work aims to improve biological information for West Coast groundfish stock assessments and to improve life history theory related to the causes and consequences of variation in fish reproductive traits.

Title: Weakly Nonlinear Ekman Pumping in the Sri Lanka Dome

Presenter(s): Kerstin Cullen (Naval Research Laboratory)

Abstract: The Sri Lanka Dome is a cyclonic, upwelling feature in the Southwest Monsoon Current system in the southern Bay of Bengal. Wind stress curl (generated by the wind shadow from the Island of Sri Lanka) does not explain this system's sea level height dynamics or the distribution of cool sea surface temperatures (SST). Previous work has attributed the spatial SST pattern to lateral advection. We explore whether low latitude weakly nonlinear 'vorticity' Ekman pumping could be an explanation for both cooling and observed changes in sea level height in the southwest Bay of Bengal. Weakly nonlinear upwelling, calculated from ERA5 and AVISO geostrophic currents, co-locates with changes in sea level height (and presumably isopycnals). While the SST signal is sensitive to several factors, including the net surface flux, regional upwelling explains changes in AVISO sea level height if the nonlinear terms are included in both the Sri Lanka Dome and the region of the Southwest Monsoon Current.

Title: Evaporation links the Hydrologic Cycle and Global Heat Transport

Presenter(s): Dr. Robert Fajber, NOAA Climate & Global Change Fellow, Class 29

Sponsor(s): NOAA Climate Program Office and The Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS)

Seminar Contacts: clara.deck@noaa.gov

Remote Access: Register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/306532172926387211

Abstract: While the total heat transport of the coupled climate system is constrained by the top of atmosphere radiation, the partitioning of the flux into atmospheric and oceanic components is constrained by the surface energy fluxes. In the atmosphere the dominant balance is between evaporation adding energy and a near uniform net radiative flux removing energy, so that the total energy transport is largely determined by the evaporation. Over the oceans the neat heat flux is largely a balance between shortwave heating and evaporative cooling. Since evaporation has equal but opposite effects of the ocean and atmospheric heat transport it plays a critical role in coupling together the atmospheric and oceanic heat transports.In this talk I will explore the link between Evaporation and Heat Transport using a variety of model experiments and observational analysis. First it will be demonstrated how evaporation drives both the moist and dry components of atmospheric heat transport by decomposing the heat transport into physically based components which relate the heat transport to different diabatic processes. Second I will show results from a coupled ocean atmospheric model using perturbed evaporation, which changes the partitioning between the atmospheric and oceanic heat transport. Lastly I will discuss the biases and spread in cmip model heat transport relative to observations, and our hypotheses as to the cause.

Abstract: The overall volume of freshwater entering the Arctic Ocean has been growing as glaciers melt and river runoff increases. Since 1980, a 20% increase in river runoff has been observed in the Arctic system. As the discharges of the Ob, Yenisei, and Lena rivers are an important source of freshwater in the Kara and Laptev Seas, an increase in river discharge might have a significant impact on the upper ocean circulation. The fresh river water mixes with ocean water and forms a large freshened surface layer (FSL), which carries high loads of dissolved organic matter and suspended matter into the Arctic Ocean. Optically active material (e.g., phytoplankton and detrital matter) are spread out into plumes, which are evident in satellite data. Russian river signatures in the Kara and Laptev Seas are also evident in recent SMOS Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) Arctic products. In this study, we compare the new Arctic+ SSS products, produced at the Barcelona Expert Center, with the Ocean Color absorption coefficient of colored detrital matter (CDM) in the Kara and Laptev Seas for the period 2011"2019. The SSS and CDM are found to be strongly negatively correlated in the regions of freshwater influence, with regression coefficients between '0.72 and '0.91 in the studied period. Exploiting this linear correlation, we estimate the SSS back to 1998 using two techniques: one assuming that the relationship between the CDM and SSS varies regionally in the river-influenced areas, and another assuming that it does not. We use the 22-year time-series of reconstructed SSS to estimate the interannual variability of the extension of the FSL in the Kara and Laptev Seas as well as their freshwater content. For the Kara and Laptev Seas, we use 32 and 28 psu as reference salinities, and 26 and 24 psu isohalines as FSL boundaries, respectively. The average FSL extension in the Kara Sea is 2089"2611 km2, with a typical freshwater content of 11.84"14.02 km3. The Laptev Sea has a slightly higher mean FSL extension of 2320"2686 km2 and a freshwater content of 10.15"12.44 km3. The yearly mean freshwater content and extension of the FSL, computed from SMOS SSS and Optical data, is (as expected) found to co-vary with in situ measurements of river discharge from the Arctic Great Rivers Observatory database, demonstrating the potential of SMOS SSS to better monitor the river discharge changes in Eurasia and to understand the Arctic freshwater system during the ice-free season.

Bio(s): Dr. Marta Umbert is a postdoctoral Marie Curie researcher at the Institute of Marine Sciences in Barcelona. Her actual goals are the 3D estimation of ocean currents and the study of fresh water in the Arctic Ocean. To this end, she uses quasi-geostrophic approaches and data fusion tools, combining remote sensing products, reanalysis, and in-situ data. Dr. Umbert specialises in using remote sensing variables like ocean salinity in combination with other remote sensing variables (ocean colour, temperature, and altimetry) in order to provide better remote sensing products that allow her to study the oceanographic processes governing the Arctic Ocean.

Title: Sources and human health impacts of air pollution constrained using remote sensing data and air quality modeling
NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory Seminar Series

Presenter(s): Daven Henze, University of Colorado, Boulder

Sponsor(s): NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory

Seminar Contact(s): caroline.womack@noaa.gov

Remote Access: DSRC GC402 and online at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7453153243993932813

Abstract: In this talk I will present recent work from my group and collaborators that touches on the topics of improving our understanding of sources of air pollutants, and relating specific sources to their impacts on human health through long-term exposure at the urban to national scales. The projects focus on the health impacts of PM2.5, O3 and NO2, and a common theme throughout the projects is the use of remote sensing data to constrain both the inputs to the air quality simulations as well as our estimates of exposure. In particular, I'll present work using NH3 remote sensing from the CrIS instrument to better understand sources of ammonia in the US and Europe. I'll also present results on source apportionment modeling using adjoint sensitivity analysis of air pollution health impacts in G20 countries globally, across different countries in Europe, and in source regions around 14 US cities.

Bio(s): Daven Henze is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. He received his bachelor's degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the University of Washington, and his PhD in Chemical Engineering from CalTech in 2007. He did his postdoctoral work at Columbia University before joining the faculty at CU Boulder in 2009. He currently serves as the S. P. Chip and Lori Johnson Faculty Fellow and as the Mechanical Engineering department's Associate Chair, and the Chair of the Graduate Program.

Abstract: The annual migration of approximately 123 million Pacific salmon to spawning grounds in North American watersheds connects marine with freshwater food webs as a pathway of both nutrient and contaminant subsidy biotransport. Despite the shared pathways by which nutrients and contaminants are accumulated in the marine environment, transported during migration, and released to recipient systems, these two subsidy categories have been traditionally studied separately by ecologists and ecotoxicologists. Here, we combine species-specific nutrient and contaminant concentrations with 40 years of annual Pacific salmon escapement estimates for North America to yield the first spatiotemporally comprehensive assessment of continental-scale biotransport. With this dataset we aim to 1) quantify the magnitudes of continental-scale marine-to-freshwater subsidy fluxes by migrating salmon, 2) assess how shifts in the Pacific salmon community have altered subsidy fluxes over time and space, and 3) address how individual species disproportionately deliver either brighter side or darker side subsidy profiles corresponding with their ecology and life history traits. Our results focus on the suite of nutrient and persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic contaminant subsidies that are commonly associated with Pacific salmon: nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), mercury (Hg), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethanes (DDTs), and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDEs).

Bio(s): Dr. Jess Brandt is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment & Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of Connecticut. Her research program considers how recipient ecological systems mediate contaminant distribution and how contaminant legacies constrain fish conservation efforts, with focuses on selenium, mercury, and most recently, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in aquatic food webs. Jess holds a PhD (Duke University, 2018) and MHS (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 2012) in Environmental Health, and a BA in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University (2011).

Title: Sitka Landslide Risk Dashboard & Geohazards in Southeast Alaska

Presenter(s): Annette Patton (Sitka Sound Science Center); and Jacyn Schmidt (Central Council Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska)

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

Seminar Contacts: Alison Hayden (abhayden@alaska.edu) and Genie Bey (genie.bey@noaa.gov)

Remote Access: https://uaf-accap.org/event/vaws-landslide-risk-dashboard/

Abstract: Rain-induced landslides pose risk to lives and infrastructure across Southeast Alaska. After the fatal landslide in Sitka in August, 2015, the community convened experts to consider strategies to mitigate landslide risk. Over the last five years, the Sitka Sound Science Center has partnered with an inter-disciplinary, inter-agency team of local and technical experts to develop and disseminate a landslide risk dashboard. The dashboard uses NWS rainfall data to estimate current and forecasted landslide probability and is now available to the public at sitkalandslide.org. We are now beginning a project to expand monitoring for landslides and other natural hazards in six rural communities in Southeast Alaska.

Bio(s): Annette Patton is the Lead Geoscientist at the Sitka Sound Science Center. One of her main topics of research is understanding landslide initiation, including the geology, geomorphology, and weather patterns that make a hillslope more susceptible to landslides and debris flows. Her PhD research focused on evaluating the impacts of climate change on landslide occurrence in Denali National Park. Recently, Annette's work includes research to develop and implement the landslide forecasting system in Sitka and other communities in Southeast Alaska.

Abstract:
This installment of the NOAA Science Seminar Series is presented by the NOAA Office of Aquaculture (OAQ). The webinar will consist of a 30-40 minute presentation, followed by moderated Q&A for the remainder of the hour. It will be recorded.This project uses oral history documentation to uplift the innovation and pioneering spirit of the elder generation of Hawaii aquaculturists. Hawaii-based nonprofit Kuaina Ulu Auamo (KUA) aims to document the lived experiences of growing seafood as a means to ensure we continue to hold restorative aquaculture as a crucial part of our food systems into the future. We also hope to increase awareness of aquaculture achievements in Hawaii, including successes in modern aquaculture as well as the resilience of loko ia as the oldest form of mariculture and aquaculture innovation in the islands. The project also increases community capacity to do oral history documentation by providing resources for training and technical support for audio recording and transcription. We will share about the pilot phase of the project in which nine participants were interviewed on three different islands.

Abstract: Ctenophores play an important role in marine ecosystem and can affect the structure of the planktonic food web. They can release a large amount of nutrients and organic matter, which can stimulate bacterial growth and alter bacterial composition. The interaction between bacteria and Ctenophores is poorly understood, especially the interaction between Ctenophores and Vibrios. This presentation will focus on the distribution and abundance of the Ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi and association with Vibrios in the Maryland Coastal Bays (MCBs). Along with deciphering the microbial communities associated to M. leidyi. Understanding the relationship between Vibrios and M. leidyi may be useful in the development of a vibrio predictive model for the MCBs.

Abstract: This seminar will combine stories, science, stunning visuals to highlight the major accomplishments of NOAA's Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research, and Technology (CIOERT). Led by Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in partnership with the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration (and Research), University of North Carolina Wilmington, University of Miami, and SRI International, CIOERT's vision has been to transform the way we explore our oceans through novel approaches and technology. We have served NOAA strategic priorities in three theme areas: exploration of continental shelf edge frontiers, research on vulnerable coral and sponge ecosystems, and development of advanced underwater technologies. Since 2010 CIOERT has conducted more than 40 research cruises focused on deep and mesophotic coral reef exploration and characterization, resulting in the discovery of new species, expanded and revised habitat maps, newly identified coral reef resources, and improved understanding of ecological connectivity among coral reef ecosystems. These studies have provided critical data and recommendations to enhance marine ecosystem management, including the establishment of 2 new MPAs and expansion of 5 existing MPAs. CIOERT has successfully developed new technologies for ocean research and exploration including custom ROV sampling equipment, noninvasive technology to measure coral metabolism, an integrated state-of-the-art mesopelagic system, and the first ever invertebrate cultured cell line. CIOERT researchers have discovered novel marine compounds with demonstrated activity against MRSA, tuberculosis, and triple negative breast cancer. More than 125 graduate and undergraduate students have participated in CIOERT research and training programs. Finally, CIOERT researchers have contributed to 23 telepresence-enabled exploration missions engaging thousands of shoreside scientists, graduate and undergraduate students, high school classes, and members of the interested public.

Keywords: technology, ocean research, exploration

Sponsor(s): This webinar is sponsored by the NERRS Science CollaborativeSeminar Contacts: Doug George (douglas.george@noaa.gov) or Nick Soberal (nsoberal@umich.edu)

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6342610215153718796 Abstract
Shorebird populations are declining globally in the face of sea level rise, increasing coastal development, and shoreline modifications. The piping plover and red knot have exhibited population declines in recent years, particularly in the intertidal habitats of South Carolina. Recent research has established linkages between benthic prey abundance and foraging activity along South Carolina beaches; however, most of these projects focused on determining impacts from shoreline modification, rather than quantifying habitat characteristics. Identifying characteristics associated with optimal foraging habitat can help inform state and federal permitting and habitat management activities in areas these shorebirds inhabit. A project team at the ACE Basin Reserve worked with the SC Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop a habitat assessment tool for the piping plover and red knot. In this webinar, project lead Andrew Tweel will share methods and outcomes of the project, including a refined list of preferred prey species for piping plovers and a preliminary list for red knots. Tweel will discuss what prey species are important, what makes certain areas foraging hotspots for the piping plover and red knot, and how this information can inform management decisions within South Carolina and across the U.S.

Abstract: Many North Pacific fishes are armed with scutes, spines, and barbs. It is generally accepted that these structures defend their bearers against predation, but outside of a few species, the function and evolutionary history of fish weapons remains mysterious. I used a variety of techniques, including CT scans and 3D motion capture to describe the morphology and use of preopercular spines in sculpins and compare the evolutionary drivers of the weaponization of sculpin skulls with better-understood terrestrial models, such as the evolution of antlers in stag deer.

Bio(s): Thaddaeus Buser received his Bachelor's degree in Aquatic and Fisheries Science from the University of Washington, his master's degree in Fisheries from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and his PhD in Fisheries from Oregon State University. His research interests center around the biology, ecology, and evolution of North Pacific fishes and invertebrates, with a particular enthusiasm for sculpins and their relatives. Before joining the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Thaddaeus was a post-doc research associate at Rice University, where he studied the diversity and evolution of fish skulls.

Abstract: The methane ice worm Sirsoe methanicola is the only macrofaunal species observed to colonize methane hydrates in the Gulf of Mexico. Our recently published metagenomic analysis of the worms' gut contents and worm fragments predicted diverse metabolic capabilities related to microbial cycling of sulfur, carbon, and nitrogen compounds, as well as microbial synthesis of amino acids and B vitamins. The ice worm microbial community was dominated by uncultured Sulfurospirillum, a taxon previously considered free-living rather than host-associated. From the metagenomic data, we also assembled the 18S rRNA gene, 28S rRNA gene, and a complete 17,403 bp mitochondrial genome of S. methanicola. Assembled marker gene sequences were near-identical to previously published S. methanicola sequences, and the mitogenome represents the first complete mitogenome of the family Hesionidae. Other functional genes related to S. methanicola were also annotated in the metagenomes. Our study highlights the utility of metagenomics in elucidating both microbial and host genetic features in this poorly understood deep-sea marine polychaete.

Abstract: Learn more about the NOS Annual Lagniappe Awards! The Disaster Preparedness Program (DPP) is pleased to announce the 4th annual Lagniappe Awards request for proposals. Last year, the DPP provided funds to OCS, OR&R, and ONMS, and we look forward to providing more funds this year. Notable past projects addressed preparedness gaps within NOS through contracts for exercises, a storm surge model display tool enhancement, development of rapidly deployable buoys, disaster communications equipment testing and purchase, and upgrades to a navigation survey vessel.
The DPP has budgeted FY23 funds to continue to support preparedness across NOS. NOS project proposals will receive priority consideration and proposals from outside NOS that benefit NOS response and preparedness will also be considered. Funding will be available for specific activities and projects that enhance NOS preparedness and mission readiness for natural and human-caused disasters. Funding for these activities is limited and contingent upon receipt of FY23 appropriated funds.

Ecosystems don't care about political boundaries, even if the natural resources within them are managed by multiple entities. Research projects that span political boundaries can often be sticky " decisions are made on long timelines, changes in policy and staff can derail implementation of projects and the tools they produce, and it can be difficult to effectively engage diverse stakeholders so that their perspectives inform the work. Enter: collaborative science. In situations with complex and competing interests, there is a higher likelihood that science will be applied to decision making when problems are tackled with a collaborative science framework. In this webinar, collaborative science project teams will discuss how to work across political boundaries and with different partners to develop shared tools, models, and action plans that will improve ecosystem management.Collaborative Science ConversationsThe NOAA RESTORE Science and NERRS Science Collaborative programs are back at it, teaming up to bring you the voices of project teams from the field through our Collaborative Science Conversations webinar series. These sessions dig into the unique value of collaborative science, what it feels like in practice, and tips and strategies for success.

Sponsor(s): NOAA Office for Coastal Management, Sea Grant, NOAA National Weather Service

Seminar Contact(s): brenna.sweetman@noaa.gov

Remote Access: TBD

Abstract: Coastal flooding is affecting underserved and vulnerable communities at an alarming rate. Underserved communities are increasingly impacted by severe weather and flooding, resulting in NOAA and others to recognize the need to prioritize integrating equity into all stakeholder engagement and service delivery efforts. NOAA and Sea Grant programs partnered to better understand how to communicate risk with underserved communities to better prepare for sea level rise flooding. This project was two-fold. The first part was a literature review conducted by NOAA intern Karla Lopez on how to conduct effective long-term engagement with communities that are most vulnerable to sea level rise. The second part summarizes lessons learned from implementing these practices through community engagement activities conducted by Mississippi Alabama Sea Grant, Hawaii Sea Grant and North Carolina Sea Grant. This presentation will share an overview of the lessons learned from the literature review and on the ground engagement activities to help increase equitable access to information that will improve climate resilience.
