Abstract:
 These presentations are part of a monthly series hosted by CCRUN, a NOAA RISA Team. The lectures are drawn from the recent book, Our Warming Planet: Topics in Climate Dynamics, published by World Scientific. The series encompasses topics such as natural and anthropogenic climate forcing, climate modeling, radiation, clouds, atmospheric dynamics and storms, hydrology, cryosphere, paleoclimate, sea level rise, agriculture, atmospheric chemistry, and climate change education. The lecture series is for students, teachers, and interested researchers and colleagues around the world to be better able to understand various aspects of climate change.
The book, containing most of the material in this webinar series, can be purchased as an e-book, soft cover, or hard cover copy at the World Scientific Publishing website: https://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/10256
Webinars will take place monthly on Tuesdays from 3:00"5:00PM. No purchase of book necessary for viewing the webinar series. All webinars are recorded and made available on the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast website at http://www.ccrun.org/resources/lectures-in-climate-change/.
About the Educational Global Climate Model (EdGCM): The Educational Global Climate Modeling (EdGCM) Project develops and disseminates an integrated suite of software that makes it possible for educational institutions to operate a fully functional version of the GISS GCM Model II without the need for programmers or supercomuters. EdGCM uses a graphical user interface to ease the operation of the GCM's basic functions, from model set up to post-processing of output. It is built on a database framework so that teachers, students or scientists can more easily organize large numbers of experiments as well as the input and output from clmate simulations. Scientific visualization capability is supplied and there are user-expandable image libraries, and eJournals. Thus, using EdGCM students can obtain a complete and meaningful research experience in which they learn about various climate change issues (global warming, past climates, etc.) while simultaneously learning about computer modeling techniques, Numerous universities, schools and research institutions are employing EdGCM as a means of lowering the barriers to participation in climate change and climate modeling science.

Abstract:
Offshore wind energy development is proceeding rapidly on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf. Wind energy development will soon enter the construction phase within New England and the Mid-Atlantic and efforts are also underway to develop wind energy along the west coast of the U.S. To date, 15 commercial offshore wind leases are active in the Northwest Atlantic shelf from North Carolina to Massachusetts and additional lease areas are under consideration. We will provide an overview of the development process, review the potential interactions with NOAA fisheries mission; including the impacts on our scientific enterprise; and discuss the major challenges and opportunities to achieving coexistence between sustainable fisheries and offshore renewable energy.

Abstract:
 Machine learning is becoming more and more accessible to the scientific community, with high performance computing capabilities, data collection, and increasing availability of free and highly efficient software packages. Part 1 of this talk discusses the great potential as well as some challenges of using machine learning for climate and weather applications. Challenges include the perceived lack of transparency and the potential for incorrect generalization of these methods.  We then discuss strategies for overcoming these challenges, including i) leveraging physics in the AI approach and ii) utilizing visualization tools to help understand the reasoning of these algorithms.  Part 2 then discusses machine learning projects that are currently ongoing within NOAA ESRL's Global System Division (GSD). GSD has several active projects applying different methods of ML to satellite data that will be covered briefly in this talk. One project in particular, a Regions of Interest (ROI) project that uses deep learning to detect cyclonic ROI from water vapor satellite data, will be highlighted at the end.

Abstract:
 
The National Weather Service provides a variety of aviation weather services. The Aviation Weather Center (AWC) in Kansas City, MO contributes to the NWS mission by forecasting for several aviation hazards across the Continental United States and beyond.

Bio:
 
Karen Eagle is a Senior Aviation Meteorologist at the AWC in Kansas City, MO. She joined the AWC over 16 years ago. Like many meteorologists, her love of weather developed as a young child. It was her love of severe weather that gave her the desire to pursue meteorology as a career. However, early on in her career there was an opportunity to become an aviation meteorologist. Despite her little knowledge of aviation weather, she jumped at the chance for a new challenge. It was then she discovered how much she enjoyed aviation weather and the uniqueness that was created with the day-to-day challenges of forecasting for the Continuental U.S. In the near future, Karen will take on new challenges as she begins a new chapter in her career as Meteorologist In Charge at the Center Weather Service Unit (CWSU) in Longmont/Denver, CO. There are 22 CWSU facilities across the country. Each CWSU is a NWS unit located inside FAA Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC).

Abstract:

Hurricane Irma made landfall in southwest Florida within the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in September of 2017 as a Category 3 storm with winds in excess of 115 mph. For some areas within the reserve, the impact of the storm compounded the stress caused by decades of human development and changes to water flow patterns. Managers of the reserve want to better understand the synergistic effects of chronic stress from human modification or other drivers (e.g., sea level rise) and acute impacts from Hurricane Irma. One approach is to measure habitat structure and change in the time preceding and following the major storm event.
This webinar will describe the use of advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018. Dr. Matt McCarthy will share the methods used to map the landscape and evaluate change. Dr. Brita Jessen will provide background for the study and discuss the management implications for the reserve and other coastal areas. Matt and Brita have been collaborating on a one year-year catalyst project that has relevance to coastal land managers interested in mapping habitat change.

Implications of Changes in Water Clarity for Lake Ecosystem Structure and Function: Beyond the Holy Grail

Date & Time: 22 July 2019

Abstract:
The holy grail of lake management can be found in the strong relationship between nutrient loading and chlorophyll concentrations. Increases in nutrients can lead to harmful algal blooms, cyanotoxins, and dead zones. These events plague western Lake Erie, coastal oceans, and many other inland waters. Yet a recent survey of 2,913 lakes in the USA shows that overall little has changed with either nutrients or chlorophyll in recent decades. In the meantime, lakes in many parts of the world are turning browner due to up to a doubling of terrestrially derived dissolved organic matter. Other lakes such as Michigan and Huron are increasing in water clarity. Both increases and decreases in water clarity have important implications for lake ecosystem structure and function, the success of invasive and native fish species, as well as solar UV disinfection of parasites and pathogens in lakes. Understanding the causes and consequences of change in water transparency is essential to effective management of lakes and the important ecosystem services that they provide.

Bio:
Craig Williamson is the Ohio Eminent Scholar of Ecosystem Ecology at Miami University in Ohio where he leads the Global Change Limnology Laboratory. His expertise is in the ecology of UV radiation and climate change, with a current focus on the effects of water clarity on lake ecosystems. His research is based at the Lacawac Sanctuary and Biological Field Station in the northeastern Pennsylvania, but extends worldwide. Research questions range from UV effects on the ecology of zooplankton, larval fish, and infectious diseases, to deploying advanced sensors to decipher the sentinel responses of lakes to climate change. He serves on the United Nations Environment Programme Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (UNEP EEAP), is active in the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) where he leads the Climate Sentinels Working Group, and is the Chief Scientific Adviser of the Pocono Lake Ecological Observatory Network (PLEON), an outreach program on public education and monitoring of lakes in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Abstract:
 
In September 2018, a team of scientists and divers led by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center conducted a large-scale mission to survey and remove marine debris from the islands and atolls of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Over the course of 41 days, 2 ships, and a shore-based mission, the team was able to successfully remove over 74 metric tons (164,000 lbs) of derelict fishing gear, plastic, and other marine debris from the shallow (<30 ft) coral reef and shoreline environments. This presentation will provide an overview of the project's history, survey and removal methods, recent research, and future missions.

Abstract:
After more than four decades of international research and development in Doppler Wind Lidar, the Atmospheric LAser Doppler INstrument (ALADIN) on ESA's Aeolus mission is the first system to demonstrate direct measurement of vertically resolved wind profiles from space.  While international studies are already demonstrating the positive impact of Aeolus lidar observations on weather forecasts, the ALADIN mission life is limited to a maximum of three years.  The same year as the Aeolus launch, the NOAA Satellite Observing System Architecture (NSOSA) study listed 3D-Winds as one of the top observational objectives for future weather architectures and the National Academies Earth Science Decadal Survey (ESDS) listed Atmospheric Winds as one of the top targeted observables.  The Optical Autocovariance Wind Lidar (OAWL) approach developed at Ball Aerospace, with funding support from NASA, provides a validated, high-TRL, and reduced-risk U.S. option for an Aeolus follow-on. This seminar will discuss the characteristics of Doppler wind lidar observations, compare wind lidar to other wind-observing methods used in numerical weather prediction, describe what the OAWL approach offers relative to Aeolus, and provide a roadmap for achieving a U.S. space-based wind lidar as part of a future operational weather architecture.

Bio:
Sara Tucker is technical lead of Operational Weather in Civil Space and Technologies at Ball Aerospace where she focuses on development of advanced remote-sensing techniques and system architectures to meet next-generation operational weather requirements and Earth science objectives. She also serves as the Principal Investigator for the Optical Autocovariance Wind Lidar (OAWL) system.  At Ball, and previously at NOAA/CIRES, Sara has managed Doppler lidar development and participation in several ground, ship- and aircraft-based field campaigns to study atmospheric winds.  She has written and contributed to publications on Doppler lidar instrument and data product development, planetary boundary layer dynamics, cloud processes, and dust/pollution transport and mixing processes. Sara graduated from the University of Colorado with M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with a focus on digital signal processing and optics.

Abstract:
SoundToxins is a diverse partnership of aquaculture businesses, federal, tribal, state, and local governments, education institutions, and Puget Sound residents that monitor for harmful algae to alert health and natural resource agencies of their abundance. The complimentary online database allows for near-real time viewing of “traffic-light” maps. This partnership has helped to minimize the risks to human health and reducing the economic losses to Puget Sound fisheries since its formation in 2006. 
About the Speaker: Vera Trainer is a supervisory oceanographer at NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington, USA. Her current research on harmful algal blooms focuses on the assessment of climatic factors that influence toxic bloom development and understanding susceptibility of shellfish and marine mammals to toxins in their environment. Her work has led a comprehensive “ecological forecast” to alert tribal, state and federal managers to toxic events that threaten coastal shellfish harvest.

Abstract:
 We propose a novel Bayesian Monte Carlo Integration (BMCI) technique to retrieve the profiles of temperature, water vapor, and cloud liquid/ice water content from microwave cloudy measurements in the rainbands of tropical cyclones (TC). These retrievals then can either be directly used by meteorologists to analyze the structure of TCs or be assimilated into numerical models to provide accurate initial conditions for the NWP models. The BMCI technique is applied to the data from the Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) onboard Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Microwave Imager (GMI).
