Join us for our next NOAA Innovators Seminar!┬


Presenter(s):
┬ Chris Hovde, Ph.D., Southwest Sciences, Inc., Principal Research Scientist┬ ┬

Abstract:
┬ This talk focuses on recent laser-based gas sensing developments at Southwest Sciences. In one project, techniques and instrumentation developed for eddy flux measurements were repurposed to show the proof of principle of a Mars rover that can track trace gas plumes to their source, using controlled releases of methane. The methane flux sensor is available from our licensee. A Raman based probe for nitrogen led to combustion diagnostics. Finally, a compact sensor for measuring flux of nitrogen dioxide (N2O) from soils and agricultural sites has been developed and is available for Phase III applications.┬ ┬

Key Takeaways:
  • Laser-based gas sensing instrumentation can be compact, rugged and sensitive.
  • Adding wind measurements allows measurement of gas flux or tracing a plume back to its source.
  • Techniques exist for measuring many small, infrared-active gases┬ ┬


Bio(s):
┬ Dr. Hovde received his Bachelor's degree in Chemistry at Yale, his Ph.D. in Chemistry at UC Berkeley, and then joined Southwest Sciences, Inc. in 1990 after a post-doctoral appointment at Princeton. His research includes the development of laser-based methods for measuring fluxes and concentrations of trace gases.┬ ┬

Abstract:
Plastics are found in many types of seafood, suggesting a risk to humans from exposure to sorbed chemicals. However, the risk is credible only if: a) contaminated microplastics are ingested, b) typically used POPs are bioavailable, and c) plastics and POPs are trophically-transferred from prey to predator. We have assessed these three aspects by investigating the potential for seafood contamination in the commercially fished black sea bass (Centropristis striata). We first evaluated wild-caught specimens for plastic ingestion and overall health. We then cultured C. striata of two different developmental stages (larval and juvenile) in controlled studies and assessed trophic transfer of microplastics from prey. Lastly, we examined plastic pellet ingestion (e.g. feeding preference depending on plastic type, biofilm) and the potential leaching of an associated contaminant (diethylhexyl phthalate) during digestion and following excretion in adult black sea bass. We confirmed that wild adult sea bass do ingest microplastics at two sites off the coast of North Carolina. We found that larval sea bass acquire more microspheres (10-20 um) from microzooplankton prey than directly from the water, and that juvenile sea bass exhibit physiological responses (increased respiration, decreased immune response) when exposed to certain types of microplastics in water. Adults fed dosed pellets in the lab did not exhibit a preference between pellets loaded with DHP or with biofilms growing on them in comparison to control ÔÇťcleanÔÇŁ pellets, and DHP did not leach off pellets during the digestive period up to a length of 120 hours (5 days). Modeling results suggest that at higher concentrations, physiological effects caused by microplastic internalization in juveniles may contribute to population decline.

Abstract:
Giant Seabass are a species of large fish that live in the cool waters off the coast of California. This fish is the top predator of the kelp forest ecosystem, but the population has been low because of overfishing. Thanks to government protections in California, Giant Seabass are beginning to return to Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and NOAA is working with other groups to study them. The fish is unique because scientists believe it uses sounds to communicate. NOAA is working to record these sounds in the wild and study how these fish move around Santa Barbara Island, a small offshore island in the sanctuary.

Abstract:
In terms of climate change and disaster, socially and economically disadvantaged populations are disproportionately impacted, have more limited access to recovery resources, and often take longer to recover, or not recover at all. Residents of environmental justice neighborhoods generally have high levels of uncertainty, distrust, and suspicion about research related to natural hazard vulnerabilities and environmental conditions. To improve resiliency, it is imperative to increase local government awareness of social inequity and the actions that can be taken to ameliorate it. Curtis Brown will discuss challenges, opportunities, and resources for people looking for disaster resources and solutions to share with their communities.

Abstract:
The Deepwater Horizon (DWH) disaster was unique for its size and the range of ecosystems affected. Of these, the deep-sea pelagic ecosystem was by far the largest. Assessment of impact to this ecosystem was hindered by a lack of existing data, necessitating an extensive, multi-year survey of the fauna from the sea-surface to 1500 m depth. Here we report results from three sequential research programs (two NOAA-funded) over a 10-year period that have profoundly changed our perspective of this ecosystem. First, the Gulf is one of the most diverse pelagic ecosystems in the World Ocean, owing to a number of factors. With 897species of fishes identified since 2010 (including 186 new records), we now know that the majority of fish species in the Gulf spend all or part of their lives in the pelagic realm. Second, the pelagic fauna is highly connected vertically due to daily migrations and horizontally due to onshore advection. This finding necessitates a holistic approach to the management of the Gulf as a large marine ecosystem. Third, pelagic populations in the Gulf have plummeted since DWH, with declines of some taxa exceeding 90%. Declines occurred between Sep 2011 and April 2015, and subsequent sampling/analysis (to August 2018) has not shown signs of recovery. Available evidence suggests that trophic levels in the open Gulf are tightly linked, suggesting that reductions in intermediate levels could reverberate throughout the system. Ongoing efforts of the DEEPEND|RESTORE program will further investigate population trends and drivers, as well as translate offshore data products into resource management tools. With the deepening trajectory of the oil industry in the Gulf (i.e. increasing likelihood of future spills), the vital role the deep-pelagic fauna play in carbon sequestration, and the linkages between the deep-pelagic fauna and federally managed species (e.g., cetaceans, tunas, billfishes, sharks), sustained observation of the open ocean Gulf is critical.

Abstract:
The combined effects of climate change, leveeing of the Mississippi River, sea level rise, and other factors have led to a landloss crisis in coastal Louisiana. This loss is a concern for coastal communities that benefit from the various ecosystem services they provide, such as storm protection, flood control, and habitat for economically and ecologically important plants and animals. As such the construction of new tidal marshes and restoring degraded marshes to their original functionality has become a core strategy in Louisiana's coastal master plan. However, as funding is often preferentially directed towards restoration over post-construction monitoring it can be difficult to assess if newly created marshes are functionally and ecologically equivalent to existing marshes. The NOAA Restore Marsh Food Webs project takes a holistic approach to this issue by characterizing species compositions and using stable isotope approaches to evaluate the structure and complexity of created and natural marshes. The project's goal is to identify the key habitat characteristics that drive community and food web recovery following restoration. We have found that differences in elevation, flooding duration, and soil characteristics among and within created and natural marshes can lead to differing vegetation abundances and community composition. In contrast, nekton communities remain broadly similar though differing habitat characteristics among created and natural marshes can lead to differences in nektonic food web structure. For example, created marshes had broader resource use and a relatively higher input of aquatic vs. terrestrial carbon sources relative to reference marshes. Our findings indicate that elevation and hydroperiod can be used as proxies to assess the degree to which constructed marshes are functionally and ecologically equivalent to existing natural marshes. The knowledge gained from this work can be used by restoration managers to inform their decision-making process surrounding future coastal wetlands construction projects and monitoring activities.

Abstract:
The daunting drumbeat of recent climate change reports can make it difficult not to feel hopeless and helpless in adapting to the climate impacts we can no longer avoid. Victoria Herrmann will discuss climate change adaptation work in the Arctic and South Pacific, using the lens of two current projects: Rise Up To Rising Tides and the Arctic Migration in Harmony Research Coordination Network. She will speak to the challenges and pathways to engage with on-the-ground capacity building and climate policy in the U.S. and U.S. Territory Communities from Alaska to American Samoa. In particular, Victoria will create a space for discussion on how everyone, from students to senior scholars, can commit to climate change action in their work and bridge the gap between research and community action.

Abstract:
Hanauma Bay located within the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is one of the most famous and popular visitor destinations in all of Hawai╩╗i. During normal times, Hanauma Bay attracts over over three million visitors per year and suffers greatly from overuse. Hanauma is both a Nature Preserve and a Marine Life Conservation District (the first of several established in the State of Hawai╩╗i). Visitors are required by law to refrain from mistreating marine animals or from touching and walking on the coral reefs.However, since March 2020, the Bay has been closed to all public uses. This has allowed researchers from the University of Hawai╩╗i Institute of Marine Biology to study the impact of humans on the park's diverse marine life. Join Ms. Severino as she discusses what researchers have learned so far and how this data can add to our knowledge of what happens to marine protected areas when human uses are taken out of the equation.More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
We established a Private Public Partnership (PPP) to identify and manage agricultural fields in the Western Lake Erie Basin where large reductions in phosphorus are likely to be realized. Fields with high risk of phosphorus runoff were identified based on soil test phosphorus levels two times greater than agronomic recommendations. Phosphorus runoff from these fields cannot be managed by only in field practices because fertilizer application is not required for crop production. Therefore, to further reduce phosphorus runoff from these sites requires the use of edge of field BMPs. Establishing a PPP allowed private partners to maintain proprietary data while assisting the public partners in identifying fields with high risk of phosphorus loss. The private partners, farmers and their consultants, best know their field characteristics and can facilitate field identification and the selection of conservation plans that are likely to be effective. Through collaboration with 4R Certification Program, Nutrient Service Providers, and farmers we are implementing and monitoring the impacts of conservation practices on 14 elevated phosphorus fields in the Maumee Watershed. Preliminary results from the project will describe the characteristics and runoff water quality from elevated phosphorus fields. The structure and results from this research demonstrate the value of collaborating with NSPs to identify legacy sources of nutrients, and the value of forming PPPs when proprietary information can limit the identification and accessibility of sites where environmental management practices can be most beneficial.

Abstract:
Water depth is a much-needed geophysical parameter in the coastal ocean. It is important for navigation, engineering, tourism, and resource management including benthic biodiversity and water quality monitoring. Polar-orbiting satellites frequently fly over the global shallow waters, generating ocean color images potentially useful for the derivation of the water depths. In this talk, we present a newly developed physics-based algorithm for such retrieval. The algorithm takes into account the temporal variation of water-column optical properties and the fact that the water depths and bottom substrates remain relatively stable within a short period. Practically it incorporates two images into one optimization process to estimate the water depth. We evaluate the algorithm performance with synthetic water depth and light field data. We show that the algorithm can be applied to different benthic substrates such as coral reefs, seagrass meadows, and sand, with satisfactory depth estimates. The application of the algorithm is also demonstrated with satellite ocean color images from Landsat 8, Suomi-NPP, and Sentinel 3. Our analyses confirm the promise of the semi-analytical water depth retrieval from multi-spectral satellite sensors by delineating the temporal characteristics in images. It suggests one path forward for operational mapping of the water depths in global shallow environments.

Abstract:
The science of computing brightness motion in imagery pairs and sequences at every image pixel, or so-called ÔÇťDense Optical FlowÔÇŁ (DOF), has advanced considerably in the last four decades to support applications like objective robotic vision, autonomous driving, augmented reality, and motion picture special effects. While seldom explored, DOF derivation is now enabled in visible and infrared satellite imagery by the spatial and temporal resolution of new-generation instruments like the Advanced Baseline Imager on the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-R series platform. DOF derivation from satellite imagery would have a variety of unique applications that are beneficial for research,forecasting, and decision-making products currently in development. These applications include atmospheric motion vector retrieval, temporal brightness interpolation, feature tracking, feature nowcasting, image stereoscopy, and semi-Lagrangian cloud-top cooling derivation. This presentation will go into detail on how some of these new DOF techniques are derived and highlight studies at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere to explore and validate novel applications. Demonstrations will also be shown on how improving feature tracking with DOF can complement machine-learning and artificial intelligence efforts for image classification and prognosis tasks. Examples of several DOF satellite imagery applications will be presented along with validation comparisons to state-of-the-art Derived Motion Wind products. Finally, this presentation will highlight current efforts to bring novel DOF applications into relevant operational environments.

Jason Apke is a Research Scientist I at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere. He received his Bachelor of Sciences degree in Meteorology from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO in 2011, a Master's degree in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013, and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Alabama-Huntsville in 2018. His dissertation focused on using atmospheric motion vectors to depict flow fields over deep convection observed from super-rapid scan geostationary satellite imagery, and how they could be used to identify signals relevant severe weather forecasting. He currently works on developing and implementing dense-optical flow derivation algorithms for a variety of satellite meteorology-related applications.

Abstract:
The 2013 year-class of age-0 Walleye Pollock potentially crashed due to relatively poor feeding conditions for large proportions of the population, which left them undersized and therefore ill prepared for overwinter survival.

Bio(s):
Since 1999, I have been working primarily as a zooplankton taxonomist. My main interest is how climate change affects zooplankton ecology and therefore the upper trophic levels supported by the zooplankton community. It has been demonstrated over the last twenty years that the zooplankton community structure reflects the hydrology of the habitat from which they live, and therefore zooplankton can be ecosystem indicators of climate change. I joined EcoFOCI in November, 2015 after many years working on the zooplankton community off the Oregon and Washington coasts. At EcoFOCI, I use my taxonomic expertise to identify both the zooplankton community and the stomach contents of larval fish of the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Arctic. Using the zooplankton community as biological indicators of current climate conditions and therefore larval fish recruitment has the potential of being a critical tool for fisheries management in the future of these regions.

Abstract:
This talk is about my first hand experience overwintering onboard RV Polarstern in the Central Arctic Ocean. In fall 2019 the largest Arctic research expedition set out to be trapped in the ice for an entire year to fill the data gaps. The MOSAiC (Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate) campaign onboard the German icebreaker POLARSTERN drifted across the Central Arctic Ocean so an international team from 20 countries could study atmospheric processes, ice and ocean physics, biogeochemical cycles and ecosystem changes. The winter leg from November to March was defined by low temperatures and constant darkness but also by lead openings and buildup of pressure ridges, demonstrating that the ÔÇťNew ArcticÔÇŁ is not just a concept anymore but that it is already a reality.

Bio(s):
Dr. Julia Grosse is a member of the Biological Oceanography Group in the Marine Biogeochemistry Division at GEOMAR and a postdoc in the Micro-ARC project. She is a phytoplankton ecologist/ biogeochemist interested in the drivers of phytoplankton productivity, the consequences on the cycling of organic matter (especially individual compounds such as amino acids and carbohydrates) and the repercussions for the microbial loop as well as food webs.

Abstract:
Whales are known as kohol─ü in Hawaiian and have long had a place in the Hawaiian culture. The Kumulipo creation chant speaks about the birth of the whale, ÔÇťHanau ka Palaoa noho i kaiÔÇŁ (born is the whale living in the sea). The kohol─ü was believed to be a manifestation of Kanaloa, the god of the ocean, and is said to be responsible in helping the Polynesians discover the Hawaiian Islands. Join Solomon Pili Kaho╩╗ohalahala as he shares that whales are also revered as ÔÇśaumakua (spiritual protector) to specific families and were generally viewed as divine beings.

This presentation is in celebration of November, which is Ho╩╗i Kohol─ü (Return of Humpback Whale Month).More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
An overview and comparison of changing marine environments in Puget Sound and the Bering Sea. Warming waters and anthropogenic contributions have led to increasing incidences of coastal hypoxia world wide, as well as, early sea ice retreat observed in the Arctic. Copepods are an important tropic link between marine primary production and upper trophic levels, and how they respond to climate change will greatly affect the future of our oceans. This research seeks to contribute to implications that hypoxia causes a disruption to copepods diel-vertical migration patterns and early sea ice retreat is prompting a shift in bloom timing relative to zooplankton abundance on the Eastern Bering Sea Shelf.
