Abstract:
Mr. Blackburn's topic is “Climate, Flooding, and Money”, and he will present a survey of his recent work including the creation of a proposed U.S. standard for soil carbon storage transactions and trying to understand how Houston will (or will not) adapt to the flooding challenges represented by climate change and the “big one”. This work is in association with the Severe Storm (SSPEED) Center and the Baker Institute at Rice University in Houston. In this presentation, Mr. Blackburn will discuss both difficulties of and strategies to improve communications and thinking regarding climate change which is a central element in both the evolving carbon standard and flooding in Houston. Among other things, Mr. Blackburn has discovered that discussing monetary implications of climate can help move the conversation forward, particularly in the area of carbon emission reduction and storage.

Presenter(s):
Ishrat Jabin, NOAA EPP Earth System Sciences and Remote Sensing Scholar

Abstract:
Autonomous systems can both augment traditional manned observing systems, as well as serve a unique role not possible with traditional platforms. At the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), autonomous systems are in use for numerous applications in both the Great Lakes and marine environment, including fisheries applications. Starting in 2017, NOAA began efforts to systematically catalog all research and development (R&D) projects in the agency in the NOAA R&D Database (NRDD). Using the NRDD, we examine where and how unmanned systems are in use at NOAA in contrast to traditional platforms, including ship-based measurements.

Abstract:
The NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is partnering with Ocean Exploration Trust remotely aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus to seek out new discoveries on little known regions of the deep sea along the North American West Coast. Scientists on board Nautilus and on shore participating via telepresence will conduct research that focuses on deep-sea coral habitats and an extensive octopus aggregation in our national marine sanctuaries. Most of the world's deep ocean remains largely unexplored, leaving significant gaps in knowledge needed to manage and protect ocean resources and to understand and predict future change. Learn about deep-sea coral resources that are available for teachers and students to understand these important deep-sea communities and opportunities to explore alongside researchers during the expedition.

Abstract:
Lethal injury from collisions with large vessels is a major problem inhibiting the recovery of critically endangered North Atlantic right whales. To aid recovery the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration promulgated the Right Whale Ship Strike Reduction Rule, which created Seasonal Management Areas (SMAs)requiring large ships slowing to 10 knots or less in specific time/areas. To encourage compliance with the two SMAs that overlap the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, the sanctuary and NMFS initiated a corporate responsibility project. The concept of corporate responsibility involves companies increasing their commitment to behaviors that benefit society, such as slowing to safeguard right whales, and acknowledging positive corporate behavior. Since 2015, we have used the US Coast Guard's automatic Identification system (AIS) to track vessels through the two SMAs. We used these data to grade ships based on the percent SMA distance traveled at compliant speeds as follows: A+: 99 - 100% compliance and mean speed =<10 kts;
A: 90-98.9% compliance or mean speed =<10 kts. & meanspeed least compliant transit =< 10kts;
B: 80-89.9% compliance or mean speed =<10 kts. & meanspeed least compliant transit <10.5 kts;
C: 70-79.9% compliance or mean speed 10 -10.5 kts. & meanspeed least compliant transit 10.5-11 kts;
D: 60-69.9% compliance or mean speed >10.5 kts. & meanspeed least compliant transit >11 kts;
F: <60% compliance or mean speed >11 kts. & mean speedleast compliant transit >11.5 kts.Report cards were sent to each ship and to the companies using the ships, with addresses provided by the US Coast Guard. Ships and companies receiving A+ or A grades were sent a certificate acknowledging their positive behavior. In 2015 72% (146/203) of ships received certificates. In 2019 86% (118/145) of the companies and 85% (175/211) of the ships received certificates. Reaction from specific companies will be provided. This project is now used as a model for similar programs in west coast sanctuaries and around the world.

Abstract:
Sargassum is a holopelagic brown algae found in the surface waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including the Gulf of Mexico. The accumulation of Sargassum biomass along convergence features provides refuge and foraging habitat for many marine species in an otherwise featureless open ocean. Among the fishes associated with Sargassum are the juvenile stages of managed species, such as Gray Triggerfish, Greater Amberjack, and Tripletail, among others. Sargassum is designated as Essential Fish Habitat, yet our understanding of the nursery function of Sargassum for juvenile life stages of these fishes is lacking, and managers know little about the environmental factors that drive variability in Sargassum abundance and distribution. In this presentation I will present updates from an on-going NOAA RESTORE project that is evaluating the importance of Sargassum to fisheries, and our efforts to develop a standardized Sargassum habitat index that can be used in population assessments of managed fish species that rely on Sargassum during the early life stages. Habitat indices are developed using both vessel-based and remote sensing observations, and are related to the recruitment of juvenile fishes (e.g., age-0 Gray Triggerfish). The variability in trophic ecology for several target species is also described, with an emphasis on the biological and oceanographic drivers of food web dynamics. Understanding the relationships between Sargassum and managed fish species is increasingly important, given the potential impacts of additional Sargassum biomass entering the Gulf of Mexico from recent blooms in the central Atlantic and Caribbean.

Presenter(s):
Dr. Charles Perretti, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, Research Fishery Biologist

Abstract:
State-space stock assessment models have become increasingly common in recent years due to their ability to estimate unobserved variables and multiple sources of error. Given these features, they may be able to estimate the unobserved process of misreported fishery catch. I describe recent research examining whether the state-space assessment model SAM is able to estimate misreported catch in a simulated fishery. I present results from a factorial experiment testing three formulations of SAM, including a new approach utilizing a random walk model of misreporting, and show the impact of misreporting on important stock assessment output.

Abstract:
The Atlantic Cod Stock Structure Working Group recently reviewed all relevant interdisciplinary information about stock structure of Atlantic cod in US waters, and the interactions of US stocks with adjacent Canadian Stocks. The WG identified a number of mismatches between the two current US management units and biological stock structure, and they proposed five biological stocks in US waters. Learn more about the process and how their recommendations are moving forward for the next benchmark cod assessment, scheduled for 2023.Subscribe to the OneNOAA Science Seminar Series weekly email:

Abstract:
The overall goal of this project is to integrate information on ecosystem stressors and predator-prey interactions into the assessment and management of fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). Two existing trophic-dynamic ecosystem models for the GoM were updated and expanded. The first is an ecosystem model of the West Florida Shelf (WFS), that focuses on reef fish species and red tides. The second model is a Gulf-wide (U.S. territorial waters) ecosystem model that focuses on federally managed species, the role of forage fish, and effects of bycatch. Both models utilize the Ecopath with Ecosim and Ecospace (EwE) modeling software package. In the WFS EwE model, a new feature was added to enable estimation of red tide mortality over space and time, while accounting for potential bloom avoidance and effects of food web impacts on recovery times. An important output from this model is a time series of red tide mortality that can be incorporated into reef fish stock assessments and can also inform projection scenarios used by managers to set annual catch limits. The Gulf-wide EwE model focuses on Gulf menhaden and generates time series of predation mortality for stock assessment and presents managers with the tradeoff between menhaden harvest and predator populations. Primary end users of these tools include stock assessment scientists, scientific advisory committees, and state and federal fisheries managers. Input from end users was obtained during an initial scoping workshop and we remained engaged with our end users by providing updates opportunistically during routine meetings. In the case of Gulf menhaden, our end user engagement efforts highlighted constraints and limitations in their management structure, impeding immediate uptake of the ecosystem information. Over the next year, we will finalize ecosystem model outputs to upcoming stock assessments and management actions for gag grouper, scamp, gray snapper, and Gulf menhaden as well as the recently initiated Gulf Fishery Ecosystem Plan.

Abstract:
When a sea turtle dies, it typically sinks to the bottom, begins decomposing, and then floats to the surface if enough internal gases accumulate. A total of 42 cold-stunned sea turtle carcasses,15 green (Chelonia mydas) and 27 Kemp's ridley (Lepidochelys kempii), were placed in wire mesh weighted cages at varying water depths and temperatures in the northern Gulf of Mexico from June 2018 to October 2019. Cameras and temperature-depth-orientation devices (TDRs) were used to record the carcass movements. Overall, carcasses did not float when deployed in colder and deeper waters and carcasses tended to float faster at shallower depths. We did not identify the exact depth at which sea turtle carcasses cannot generate enough gases to float, but that depth is likely very close to 40 m. Inconsistencies in overall ability to float as well as the variability of float time for individual carcasses along with species-specific differences were documented. This work provides information to enhance the existing sea turtle backtracking analysis mortality mapping tool as well as considerations for at-sea mortality estimates based on stranding information.

Abstract:
The U.S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) is aligned with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). This presentation discusses what that statement means, why it is done, and how it is achieved.

This webinar covers:


What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).
Examples of what this looks like in practice, and how it affects NGS stakeholders.

Abstract:
What does environmental justice mean during and after a storm? Environmental and tech policy expert Aerica Shimizu Banks explains how one's environment and the weather are just as much a consequence of racial and colonial legacies webbed on our laws through an analysis of hurricanes since 1970. We call storms and other natural disasters acts of God, but they are as similarly influenced by actions on earth as the vulnerable communities that bear the consequences of their increasing intensity.

Abstract:
The Rising Voices Center for Indigenous and Earth Sciences aims to advance science through collaborations that bring Indigenous and Earth (atmospheric, social, biological, ecological) sciences into partnership. Panelists will discuss and explore the nature of Indigenous data, which is often referred to as Traditional Knowledge (TK)- why and how does it differ from Western knowledge? The panelists' research and experiences will demonstrate how combining western technology and Indigenous research can yield novel insights into and actions for preserving our environment. Additionally, they will explain how oral histories and TK contain information that cannot be picked up with remote sensing technology or other Western principles, and how much of Indigenous generational knowledge of the land was later replicated by Western technology.

Abstract:
Many pollutants are readily apparent in the environment. Spilled oil, plastic bottles, and plastic bags are easily seen and their impacts on marine organisms well known. There are, however, pollutants that cannot be seen, but have contaminated marine waters worldwide. This presentation will focus on two unseen pollutants of emerging concern: 1) manufactured nanoparticles (titania) found in sunscreens and other personal care products,and 2) microplastics that arise from the weathering and fragmentation of plastic debris. Under controlled laboratory conditions, bivalves were exposed to several types of titania nanoparticles and microplastics with different characteristics (i.e., size, shape, surface charge, surface wettability), and the most frequently ingested, rejected, and egested types determined. With these data, we are characterizing how bivalves interact with particulate pollutants, and are developing a numerical model that can predict which types are most likely ingested and how long they are retained in the animals' tissues.

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:
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 Hawaiʻi. 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 Hawaiʻi). 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 Hawaiʻi 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:
The U.S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) is aligned with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). This presentation discusses what that statement means, why it is done, and how it is achieved.

This webinar covers:


What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).
Examples of what this looks like in practice, and how it affects NGS stakeholders.

Abstract:
Whales are known as koholā in Hawaiian and have long had a place in the Hawaiian culture. The Kumulipo creation chant speaks about the birth of the whale, “Hanau ka Palaoa noho i kai” (born is the whale living in the sea). The koholā 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 Kahoʻohalahala as he shares that whales are also revered as ‘aumakua (spiritual protector) to specific families and were generally viewed as divine beings.

This presentation is in celebration of November, which is Hoʻi Koholā (Return of Humpback Whale Month).More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
The U.S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) is aligned with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). This presentation discusses what that statement means, why it is done, and how it is achieved.

This webinar covers:


What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).
Examples of what this looks like in practice, and how it affects NGS stakeholders.

Abstract:
The U.S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) is aligned with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). This presentation discusses what that statement means, why it is done, and how it is achieved.

This webinar covers:


What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).
Examples of what this looks like in practice, and how it affects NGS stakeholders.

This webinar covers:
• What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
• Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
• What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).

Abstract:
The U.S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) is aligned with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). This presentation discusses what that statement means, why it is done, and how it is achieved.

This webinar covers:


What global reference frames are and why they are useful, including a brief discussion of the difference between reference frames and reference systems.
Briefly the historical context of why the U.S. national frames are aligned with the ITRF.
What we mean when we say the NSRS is aligned with the ITRF, and how we achieve this alignment using the NOAA CORS Network (NCN).
Examples of what this looks like in practice, and how it affects NGS stakeholders.
