Title: Implications of Changes in Water Clarity for Lake Ecosystem Structure and Function: Beyond the Holy Grail
Presenter(s): Craig Williamson, Global Change Limnology Laboratory, Department of Biology, Miami University, Oxford, OH
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.

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:
National and international organizations are placing greater emphasis on the societal and economic benefits that are derived from applications of satellite data, yet improvements are needed to connect the decision processes that produce actions with direct societal benefits. Quantifying the socioeconomic benefits of Earth observations can (a) demonstrate return on investment in satellites and data products, (b) help satellite programs make informed choices about how to invest limited resources, (c) give Earth scientists an effective tool for communicating the value of the their work in socioeconomically meaningful terms, and (d) increase the likelihood that a satellite or satellite data application produces socioeconomic benefits by requiring Earth scientist to think about how project outcomes will be evaluated. To encourage the use of impact assessments to quantify the value of Earth science information energy and environmental economists at Resources for the Future (RFF) are collaborating with NASA Scientists through the VALUABLES Consortium (Consortium for the Valuation of Applications Benefits Linked with Earth Science). I will summarize the consortium's ongoing impact assessments, which quantify the value of using satellite data to enforce air quality standards, regulate air emissions from oil and gas development, detect harmful algal blooms, inform post-wildfire response, and predict ice sheet decline.

Presenter(s):
Vera Trainer, NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center, Research Oceanographer 

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:
  In this presentation we highlight some examples of the integration of scientific research by Academia, NOAA, and local NGO's to support current ocean color research from satellite and field instrumentation for sites and Puerto Rico and West Maui, HI. Also, we will discuss the development of data portals and workshops to provide easier access to managers from Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Hawaii to the remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) data. We will also present the integration of drones for supporting observations and address new threats, like Sargassum accumulations and sea level rise. Examples and results from this work will be presented.

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).

Abstract:
Join Professor Bopi Biddanda as he shares the excitement of over a decade of exploration of life in Lake Huron's sinkholes carried out in collaboration with NOAA's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. He will ponder the relevance of these findings to major issues of both scientific and societal interest such as Earth's current biologic and physiologic diversity, oxygenation of early Earth in the distant past, and humanity's ongoing search for extraterrestrial life. For an introduction to life in Lake Huron's sinkholes, see this overview educational article: http://www.nature.com/scitable/knowledge/library/rock-water-microbes-underwater-sinkholes-in-lake-25851285
