Abstract:
Environmental change can influence organisms directly, but species interactions also mediate these effects through predation, competition, and disease. In the ocean, the shifting impact of disease illustrates how host-parasite interactions can respond to changing ocean conditions. My work in temperate and tropical marine ecosystems explores how changes in the biotic and abiotic environment influence disease in critical habitat-forming species, especially corals and oysters. This seminar will highlight my recent research on co-infection in sea fan octocorals, interactive effects of pollution and temperature, and the combined impact of natural and anthropogenic impacts on Chesapeake Bay oysters.

Bio(s):
Allison Tracy is a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center where she studies oyster reef ecology in the Chesapeake Bay. Her research focuses on marine ecology, conservation, and infectious disease in wildlife. She completed her PhD at Cornell University where she studied immunity and infectious disease on coral reefs in Puerto Rico.

Join us for our next NOAA Innovators Seminar on January 28th at 12PM ET!

Presenter(s):
Jack Elston, Ph.D., Black Swift Technologies LLC

Abstract:
Sampling the lower boundary layer of tropical and other large storms is both extremely useful and difficult. Increased use of targeted in situ measurements has been proposed to continue improving tropical cyclone intensity forecasts. Generally, the number of flights per storm has been limited to single-digit numbers. Increasing the number of flights per storm affords the ability to greatly increase the temporal and spatial sampling, allowing for improved models and forecasts. The largest single barrier to realizing this objective is the total cost of the aircraft, and overcoming this obstacle requires a purpose-built system.

Key Words: UAS, Hurricane, In Situ

Bio(s):
Dr. Elston, CEO, and co-founder, Black Swift Technologies, a UAS solutions provider focused on scientific applications. Elston received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado on work that developed a complex meshed network, UAS, and control algorithms for in situ samplings of tornadic supercell thunderstorms. He has a strong background in conducting in-situ atmospheric measurements from UAS and is intimately familiar with operating unmanned aircraft in hazardous conditions.

ABSTRACT The fate of fish larvae during the pelagic phase has profound effects on replenishment of marine populations that are critical for human and ecosystem health. The survival and transport of larvae are expected to be tightly coupled to oceanic features. But, for the majority of fish species we have a poor understanding of where larvae go and what habitats they use. Therefore, we surveyed neustonic zooplankton and ichthyoplankton communities inside and outside of surface slicks along the west coast of the Island of Hawai‘i. Here, we provide evidence that surface slicks, a ubiquitous ocean convergence feature, provide nursery habitat for more than 100 species of commercially and ecologically important fishes. Our work shows that slicks are oases for food and shelter in an otherwise fluid desert, and that many larvae depend strongly on these nursery habitats for growth and survival. By providing these survival advantages, surface slicks enhance larval supply and replenishment of adult populations from coral reef, epipelagic, and deep-water ecosystems. Our findings suggest that slicks play a previously underappreciated, yet critically important role in enhancing ecosystem and fisheries productivity in tropical marine systems.

BIOGRAPHY Dr. Jonathan Whitney is a Research Ecologist and Geneticist in the Ecosystem Sciences Division of the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) in Honolulu, Hawaii. His research at NOAA is broadly focused on larval fish ecology, fisheries oceanography, population genetics/genomics, and ecology of both pelagic and coral reef systems. He received his B.A. in Zoology from Prescott College in Arizona, where he spent as much time as possible in the Gulf of California. He then earned his PhD in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his dissertation combined population genetics/genomics, community ecology, and behavioral experiments to characterize a case of incipient speciation in a coral reef fish. Dr. Whitney is the former Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Joint Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Research (JIMAR), the cooperative institute between NOAA and the University of Hawaii. During this joint position he investigated the biophysical interactions with larval fish and surface slicks in West Hawaii, which will be the topic of this seminar. He has worked at PIFSC since 2016, and just recently joined the federal workforce in the fall of 2020.

Abstract:
Studies investigating direct effects of toxicants on exposed organisms are commonplace. However, little is known about the potential effects of toxicant exposures in a parental (P0) generation on unexposed F1 or F2 generations (multigenerational and transgenerational effects, respectively) in fish. To investigate this possibility, we exposed inland silversides (Menidia beryllina) to environmentally relevant (ng/L) concentrations of ethinylestradiol, bifenthrin, trenbolone, and levonorgestrel in early life stages. We then measured developmental, immune, reproductive, DNA methylation and gene expression endpoints for two subsequent generations following the exposure. Larval exposure to each compound resulted in negative effects in theF0 generation, negative effects on the F1 and, for ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel, the F2 generations. The specific endpoints that responded to exposure in each treatment and generation varied, but included increased incidence of larval deformities, reduced larval growth and survival, impaired immune function, skewed sex ratios, ovarian atresia, reduced egg production, and altered gene expression. Furthermore, altered DNA methylation was detected across all generations, indicating dysregulation of epigenetic control mechanisms in multiple molecular pathways. Models informed by these data predicted declines across chemical treatments. These findings suggest that assessments across multiple generations are key to determine the full magnitude of adverse effects from EDC exposures in early life.

Bio(s):
Bethany DeCourten has conducted toxicology research at the University of California, Davis, University of North Carolina, Wilmington and Oregon State University. She earned her doctorate from the University of North Carolina, Wilmington with her dissertation focusing on multigenerational effects of endocrine disruptors and climate change in estuarine fish. Both her graduate and undergraduate research assessed the molecular effects of toxicant exposure in fish, while focusing on environmental relevance. She is currently conducting research on the molecular effects of pollutants in killer whales (Orcinus orca) as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Ocean Wise Conservation Association in British Columbia, Canada.

Presenter(s):
Steven Barbeaux - Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Status of Stocks and Multispecies Assessment Program

Abstract:
This seminar highlights an ecosystem-linked stock assessment for Gulf of Alaska Pacific cod combined with downscaled IPCC RCP projections to investigate changes in productivity with climate change. Modern fisheries are largely managed based on assumptions of stationarity in the productivity of stocks consistent with a baseline time period. Ecosystem-linked model projections assume stationarity in the relationship between environmental conditions and biological elements contributing to productivity instead of assuming stationarity in productivity itself. This modeling provides an opportunity to examine potential changes in productivity based on empirical relationships as environmental conditions trend away from baseline conditions.

Keywords: Climate change, Ecosystem-linked stock assessment, Pacific cod, Gulf of Alaska

Bio(s):
Dr. Steve Barbeaux, a graduate of the University of Washington, School of Fisheries, works as a research fisheries biologist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle,and is the lead stock assessment author for the Gulf of Alaska Pacific cod stock. Steve began his career with NOAA as a contracted fisheries observer in Alaska in 1996 and has been employed as a research fisheries biologist with the Status of Stocks and Multispecies Assessment Program since 2002.

Abstract:
Funded by National Sea Grant and USDA, U. Maine scientists have been producing and validating water quality products (temperature, turbidity and chlorophyll) using Landsat-8 and Sentinel 2AB. These products serve as inputs to compute suitability indices and growth models for shellfish aquaculture to facilitate decision making regarding siting of new aquaculture leases and optimizing use of existing leases. The Maine coast consists of a series of narrow inlets supporting a growing aquaculture industry (e.g., the Eastern oyster industry grew 9-fold since 2011 and the blue mussel industry has quadrupled over the same time frame). This coastline, however, is too narrow to be monitored effectively with current operational satellites such as VIIRS and MODIS, hence the necessity to use higher resolution satellite-based measurements. In the presentation we will describe the Maine shellfish aquaculture industry and its unique challenges, the ways in which high resolution remote sensing can assist the industry and the specific challenges we had to overcome to obtain reliable products.Speaker Biographies:Dr. Damian Brady is the Agatha B. Darling Associate Professor of Oceanography in the University of Maine's School of Marine Science. Dr. Brady is interested in how oceanographic tools such as remote sensing, numerical models, and water quality monitoring can inform sustainable aquaculture expansion. Toward that end, Dr. Brady is the co-director of the new Aquaculture Experimental Station made possible by a cooperative agreement between the University of Maine and USDA.Emmanuel Boss is a Professor at the University of Maine, where he has held faculty positions since 2002. Prior, he held research and postdoc positions at Oregon State University and University of Washington where he earned his Ph.D. He earned his B.S. in Physics and Math and M.S.in oceanography degrees from Hebrew University. The bulk of his work is concerned with both basic and applied research, developing new methods to use acoustical and optical properties (both from remote sensing and in-situ sensors) to quantify and characterize oceanic particulate materials. He is currently researching the use of measured optical properties (absorption, scattering and attenuation) to obtain the bulk properties of the matter in the ocean (e.g. particulate size distribution, composition).

Abstract:
The USGS Coastal National Elevation Database (CoNED) Applications Project develops enhanced topographic (land elevation) and bathymetric (water depth) datasets that serve as valuable resources for coastal hazards research. These datasets are used widely for mapping inundation zones from hazard events to support science modeling of sediment transport, erosion, and storm surge impact. As part of the vision for a 3D Nation, the CoNED Project is working collaboratively with USGS NGP, NOAA NCEI, and USACE JALBTCX through the IWG-OCM to build integrated elevation models in the coastal zone by assimilating the land surface topography with littoral zone and continental shelf bathymetry. CoNED topobathy development is focused in select regions around the U.S. coast, such as the Northern Gulf of Mexico, the eastern seaboard, California, the Pacific Northwest, the North Slope of Alaska, and select central Pacific islands and atolls. Current topobathymetric digital elevation model (TBDEM) 1-meter integration work will be highlighted in the Northern Gulf of Mexico along with plans for future work. Finally, the use of satellite imagery to derive elevation data using structure-from-motion (SfM) and satellite-derived bathymetry (SDB) techniques will be demonstrated for Cape Cod, Lake Michigan, and Unalakleet, Alaska.

Abstract:
Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are known to be the largest fish in the world with some individuals measuring 20 meters (60 feet) long and weighing around 40 tons. Despite their tremendous size, they are gentle giants, using their nearly 1.5 m-wide (5-foot) mouths to filter plankton out of large volumes of water as they swim. Very little is known about whale sharks in Hawai‘i. The researchers at Hawai‘i Uncharted Research Collective started this non-profit organization for this very reason.
