Abstract: Working landscapes in the western United States " such as forests and rangelands "support biodiversity and human livelihoods but face escalating pressures from climate change and other anthropogenic stressors. While these systems are adapted to wildfire, climate change and land management legacies are interacting to increase the frequency and size of high-severity wildfires, with consequences for humans lives and well-being, as well as ecosystem composition, functioning, and the services provided to humans. This talk will integrate global change ecology, geospatial data science, econometrics, and conservation science to identify and quantify causal relationships between land management, climate change, and wildfire in forests and rangelands in the western US. It will address questions about the relationships between land management and wildfire activity, and the effects of changing wildfire regimes on forest ecosystems. This work seeks to advance climate-adaptive forest and rangeland management at the landscape scale.This webinar is part of a series featuring NOAA Climate and Global Change (C&GC) Fellows in the NOAA Science Seminar Series. C&GC is supported by NOAA's Climate Program Office and managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).

Bio(s): Katherine Siegel is a NOAA Climate & Global Change postdoctoral fellow at the University of Colorado-Boulder. She integrates interdisciplinary approaches from global change ecology, conservation science, and econometrics to identify and quantify drivers of change in social-ecological systems. Her research seeks to inform just and sustainable management of working landscapes for biodiversity and people in the context of rapid environmental change. Her work spans multiple systems, scales, and ecosystems, from national parks in the Amazon Basin to ranches in California. In her current work, Katherine combines econometrics, ecological functional trait analysis, and ecosystem service modeling to understand the links between forest management, wildfire severity, and post-fire ecosystem functioning in the forests of the western US. She received her PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at the University of California-Berkeley in 2021.

Abstract: Since the introduction of coupling into the high-resolution deterministic model (HRES) in June 2018, all ECMWF issued forecasts are based on a coupled atmosphere-wave-ocean-sea-ice model. The importance of having an interactive ocean at sub-seasonal to seasonal time scales are well established, so in the presentation, we will show examples where having an interactive ocean model is important for the atmospheric predictions at medium-range time scales and discuss which atmospheric scores improve with ocean coupling.

Abstract: Witness the power and drama of USS Monitor's story, the iconic battle, its sinking, and its recovery as told through a selection of artworks from the collection of The Mariners' Museum and Park. The story of the little ship that saved the nation is a powerful one that has captured the fascination of millions both during its short, revolutionary life and in its legendary rest after its sinking. Its multifaceted story is one of technology, innovation, people, power, loss, and discovery and is one that has inspired many artists in the 160 years since its launching.Join Kyra Duffley, creator and host of the Mariners' monthly art series, Beyond the Frame, as we take an interpretive look at these paintings that bring history to life in a new way! We'll examine the stylistic choices the artists made in their works and how those work together to each tell a part of USS Monitor's story in its own unique and inspired way.

Bio(s): Kyra Duffley is the Multimedia Production Specialist for The Mariners' Museum and Park. She and her teammates produce a monthly art historical video series called Beyond the Frame that focuses on exploring the works of art in the museum's collection in an engaging and empowering way. Her team's goal is to break down stigmas surrounding maritime art and to make it accessible and fun for viewers of all ages and backgrounds.

Kyra is a Newport News, Virginia transplant from Memphis, Tennessee. She studied Art History at The University of Mississippi during which time she had the opportunity to study art abroad in London, England. She received her B.A. in Art History in 2016.

Abstract: The tubulous polychaete, Chaetopterus, found worldwide from the intertidal to the deep ocean, provides a favorable environment for cryptic, symbiotic organisms often overlooked when examining marine biodiversity. Our study employed molecular phylogenetics to examine the diversity of symbiont species associated with Chaetopterus sp., collected from the Gulf of Tadjoura, Djibouti. Fifteen Chaetopterus hosts and their associated symbionts were collected from nine coastal sites off the Republic of Djibouti. Four genomic regions were targeted for PCR amplification in this study: the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) and 16S rDNA, and the nuclear 18S rDNA and Histone H3. Phylogenetic and morphological analysis confirmed five species associated with Chaetopterus sp. from Djibouti: two crabs, P. pedalis and P. socialis, one nudibranch, P. chaetopterana, one fish, Onuxodon sp., and one amphipod, Leucothoe sp. As only the fourth comprehensive study on Chaetopterus symbionts, our study highlights the diversity and community patterns of symbionts associated with these unique tubulous marine polychaetes.

Abstract: Geological samples collected from marine and lacustrine environments have had an immense impact on the advancement of earth science over the past decades, with a myriad of applications ranging from paleoclimate to geohazards to benthic habitat mapping. That said, geological data collected from such operationally difficult environments have high acquisition and long-term curation costs, which can be prohibitive to most researchers. A large group of geological sample repositories made up of U.S. and international academic institutions and government agencies recognize the responsibility to sample once, use many times (to borrow a phrase from the mapping community) and so partner with NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) to organize the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS). The IMLGS is a community designed and maintained resource that enables researchers to discover and access (i) the digital data gleaned from seabed and lakebed geological samples as well as (ii) the actual physical samples archived at partner institutions. This talk will give a broad overview of the workings of the IMLGS, including sample collection, curation, and access at partner repositories as well as the digital data ingest pipeline and discovery and access pieces managed at NCEI.

Bio(s): Clint Edrington works as the Marine Geology Data Manager for NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). Working with colleagues and partners, his primary focus now is updating and modernizing the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS). In the not-too-far-off future, he and NCEI colleagues hope to provide additional data discovery and access tools for marine and lacustrine geological and geotechnical data that fall outside the scope of the IMLGS (i.e., non-curated geological sample data). The aspiration of NCEI Marine Geology is to provide a one-stop-shop for all marine and lacustrine geological data, so that scientists, engineers, and others can use and re-use these data to further the advancement of earth science. Clint obtained his PhD in Oceanography from Louisiana State University in 2013, focusing on the evolutionary history (Holocene) of the Mississippi River Delta. He received a MS in Geology in 2008 also from Louisiana State University and a BS in Geophysics in 2005 from the University of New Orleans. Alexandra Hangsterfer is the Geological Collections Manager at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, CA. The Geological Collections holds about 7,500 deep ocean cores, more than 3,500 deep sea dredges, and approximately 40,000 slides of marine microfossils in the main rock and core collections, and about 10,000 samples of rocks and fossils in the teaching collection. Along with managing the physical sample collections, Alex manages the collections databases and websites; operates the X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) facility; participates in dozens of outreach events annually, both in-person and remotely and goes out to sea on research vessels to facilitate the collection of ocean sediments and rocks. Alex obtained her Master's degree in Oceanography from Scripps in 2009. She studied methane hydrates and has worked with cores from the collection she now manages since 2005. Before coming to Scripps, Alex worked at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, MA. She received her BS with a double major in Environmental Chemistry and Biology from Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI.

Abstract: An unusually large positive salinity anomaly was observed across the eastern Gulf of Maine in winter 2017-2018. Buoy measurements in eastern Gulf found this anomaly extended down to at least 100 m, the deepest mixing observed in the past 19 years. Similarly, this is the strongest positive regional salt anomaly ever observed in sea surface salinity (SSS) satellite observations. To determine the source waters driving this event and to diagnose the relative importance of forcing processes, passive tracer adjoint sensitivity experiments are performed using a data assimilating version of the Regional Ocean Modeling System. Modeled upper ocean density and vertical diffusivity from 2007-2021 both show a maximum in January 2018. Winter 2017-2018 is the only period where the enhanced winter mixing extends below 100 m. The adjoint sensitivity analysis suggests that the major factor driving the extreme positive satellite-observed SSS anomaly is a decrease in Scotian Shelf freshwater transport to the Gulf which results in an early winter upper water column salinity surplus. This salinity change weakens the normally haline-controlled vertical stratification across the eastern Gulf which leads to an anomalous vertical entrainment of saltier subsurface Gulf water. Other factors, including a modest increase in wind-forced slope water transport, and positive fall 2017 salinity anomalies on the Scotian Shelf and Slope Sea, appear to play lesser roles in the observed salinification. The adjoint sensitivity analysis demonstrates its utility for back tracing transport pathways for periods of several months.

Accessibility: Seminars will be close captioned by Friends Interpreting Services, LLC.

Abstract: The occurrence of regime shifts in marine ecosystems has important implications for environmental legislation that requires setting reference levels and targets of quantitative restoration outcomes. The Baltic Sea ecosystem has undergone large changes in the 20th century related to anthropogenic pressures and climate variability, which have caused ecosystem reorganisation. Here, we compiled and analysed historical information across biotic and abiotic variables from 1925 to 2005 in the Central Baltic Sea. Our analysis shows that for the entire time period, productivity, climate, and hydrography mainly affected the functioning of the food web, whereas fishing became important more recently.

Bio(s): Dr. Maciej Tomczak receivedhis Ph.D. in Gdansk University, Institute of Oceanology, Poland. Dr. Tomczakworked at DTU-Aqua Denmark, Baltic NEST Institute at Stockholm University andis currently employed at the Institute of Aquatic Resources at SwedishAgriculture University. Dr. Tomczak's research focuses on food-web analysismodelling with a special focus on the Baltic Sea and fisheriesmanagement-related questions.

Abstract: Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management (EBFM) is not an all or nothing game. It is more like a journey that involves the complex interaction of science, data, technology, and policy with the ultimate goal of providing sound useful advice for fisheries management. So where are we and where are we going? NOAA Fisheries has several high priority focus areas that all have a role to play in the journey to EBFM. This seminar aims to provide some information on the interplay of past, current, and future initiatives in getting to the destination of an EBFM framework.

Keywords: EBFM, climate, data

Password: wG2S3Kgpvm7 (94273547 from phones)

Abstract: Clam gardens are intertidal features modified by Northwest Coastal Indigenous people to enhance clam habitat for optimal shellfish production. The Swinomish Indian Tribal Community (SITC) recently initiated a clam garden project to address declining clam populations and community concerns regarding climate change and ocean acidification. This effort will integrate traditional ecological knowledge into contemporary resource management and climate adaptation strategies, encourage local food security and sovereignty, and promote sustainable seafood production. SITC's Fisheries Department and Community Environmental Health Program have co-designed a social-ecological site selection process focused on community participation to promote the long-term success of the project. This presentation will discuss clam gardening and SITC's work to revive the ancient practice into modern day use.

Abstract: Management effectiveness for marine protected areas (MPAs) can be described as an assessment of how well they are achieving the conservation goals and objectives of the protected area. As countries work toward national and global area-based conservation targets, it is crucial that MPA performance be communicated to stakeholders. To meet this need, the National Marine Protected Areas Center is developing written guidance to communicate to stakeholders how the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) is and can better address and communicate management effectiveness across the system.Keywords: Knauss, Management Effectiveness, Sanctuaries

Bio(s): Kayla received a Master's degree in Marine Affairs from the University of Rhode Island in 2021. Her graduate thesis focused on qualitative measures for measuring the effectiveness of sanctuaries in managing ocean noise impacts on marine mammals. As a Knauss Fellow, her work on management effectiveness has broadened to focus on sanctuary management effectiveness on a wider scale.

Recordings: Recordings will be shared 24 hours after the event on the NOAA Central Library YouTube channel.
