Title: Linking chlorophyll concentration and wind patterns using satellite data in the Central and Northern California Current System/2021 Knauss Fellows Lunch & Learn Series

Presenter(s): Hally Stone, Knauss Marine Policy Fellow, Office of Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI)

Seminar Contact(s): NOAA Central Library, library.seminars@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3545885829485263117


Abstract: The California Current System (CCS) is a highly productive region because of wind-driven upwelling, which supplies nutrients to the euphotic zone, and numerous studies of the relationship between phytoplankton productivity and wind patterns suggest that an intermediate wind speed yields the most productivity on the shelf. We explored this relationship within the Central and Northern CCS using both satellite data and model output. Results suggest that while there is a dome-shaped relationship between mean chlorophyll concentration and wind stress for the whole system, the Central CCS and Northern CCS have significantly different relationships, so we present a revised hypothesis to describe this relationship that includes the influence of non-upwelling-derived nutrients in the Northern CCS.

Keywords: Eastern Boundary Upwelling System, chlorophyll concentration, wind

Bio(s): Hally Stone earned her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Washington in 2020. Her research focused on the broad impacts of coastal upwelling dynamics in the Pacific Northwest, with specific interest in how wind patterns affect continental shelf bottom water and phytoplankton biomass, as well as how harmful algal blooms are transported from known hot spots to coastal beaches. She hails from Buffalo, NY, and earned her Bachelors degree in Astronomy & Physics and Marine Science from Boston University in 2011.

Sponsor(s): NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries

Seminar contact: Claire.Fackler@noaa.gov, (805) 570-1113

Remote Access: Register for webinar at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7665947213809102349

Abstract: The endangered Hawaiian monk seal population is estimated at 1,400 seals, with the majority of the population (1,100) residing within Papahnaumokukea Marine National Monument. Juvenile seal survival is critical to monk seal recovery and has declined in most areas. This presentation focuses on recent impacts to the second largest monk seal population at Lalo (French Frigate Shoals) after the loss of two important pupping islets in 2018. Multiple interventions are conducted each year to increase survival, including disentangling seals caught in marine debris, rescuing seals entrapped in crumbling infrastructure, and translocating pups from areas of high shark predation to safer areas. Thea Johanos will discuss these and other contributions to recovery at both the individual seal and population levels as she prepares for the 2021 field season.

Abstract: An extensive set of moored ocean current velocities permits evaluation of the three-dimensional flow field properties, dynamics, and energetics of biweekly waves in the Indian Ocean. We determine, for the first time, the meridional structure of the biweekly flow field from the multiyear in situ measurements and demonstrate that it is dynamically consistent with that of Rossby-gravity waves, with zonal velocity being antisymmetric and meridional velocity being symmetric about the equator. Our analysis finds that the waves have a decay scale of 228 - 309 km away from the equator in the meridional direction, a zonal wavelength of 3430 550 km, and vertical wavelength of0.76 0.15 km. Phase propagates westward at speeds of 2.8 - 3.1 m s-1 and upward at 54 - 56m day-1, while wave energy flux is eastward and downward. A combination of moored velocities and satellite-derived data illustrates the basin-scale structure and temporal evolution of the waves in the Indian Ocean.

Abstract: The storage of high levels of marine lipids in arctic consumers is generally viewed as an adaptation to extreme seasonal environments that are characterized by long periods of reduced food availability. Lipids are the most efficient means of energy storage as they contain twice the energy per unit mass as other macronutrients. At the Marine Lipid Ecology Lab (FBE program, Newport, Oregon) we are using both laboratory and field-based approaches to understand how changing environmental conditions are impacting the condition of juvenile fish and crab. The analyses of consumer total lipids combined with storage lipid classes is a sensitive method for assessing animal condition. We combine this approach with the analysis of fatty acid biomarkers to help elucidate trophic mechanisms that drive changes in fish and crab condition. Two examples of this approach will be discussed featuring juvenile Chukchi Sea Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida) and juvenile Bering Sea snow and Tanner crab (Chionoecetes spp.). In both cases (pelagic and benthic), we measured a reduction of lipid storage during recent years of intense warming.

Title: OH + HO2; a new look at an old, solved (?) problem

Presenter(s): Paul Seakins, University of Leeds

Sponsor(s): NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory Seminar Series

Seminar Contact(s): caroline.womack@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8086025528195665678

Abstract: The OH + HO2 reaction is important in a variety of environments ranging from the upper atmosphere to combustion. Room temperature measurements range over more than an order of magnitude from 1e-11 to 1.5 e-10 cm3 molecule-1 s-1. We've carried out several different approaches including direct and indirect experiments and ab initio calculations. Our results support rate coefficients at the lower end of the literature range, but we can't suggest any reasons why the careful experiments of previous workers would give such different values. Our results do seem to be more consistent with analogous measurements from other workers on the Cl + HO2 reaction. We will put the reaction in context, review the literature and present our experimental and theoretical calculations. We look forward to discussing the results and see whether measurements can be reconciled.

Remote Access: https://uaf-accap.org/event/vaws-april2021/

Abstract: Part 1:
In support of the NOAA JPSS Aviation Initiative, the CIRA team recently introduced Cloud Vertical Cross-section products for aviation users to provide satellite cloud information in a more user-friendly way. Cloud cross-sections along flight routes are derived from the NOAA Enterprise Cloud products, and PIREPs and temperature data (NUCAPS or NWP model) are also incorporated with terrain information. Starting with the Alaska sector using JPSS VIIRS data, we expanded this effort to CONUS with the addition of GOES-16 ABI and continue to improve the products based on user feedback.

Part 2:
CIMSS scientists have created two different products recently that will help in aviation support. First, IFR Probability products combine satellite and model information into a 24-hour product that gives useful information on the likelihood of ceiling and visibility restrictions. This product is more skillful than satellite data or model data alone. Second, a turbulence probability product was developed using Machine Learning techniques operating on satellite data, GFS stability products, and in-plane observations of Eddy Dissipation Rate (EDR). The result is a product that predicts the probability of turbulence at different levels between 30K and 41K feet.

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 Hawaii. The researchers at Hawaii Uncharted Research Collective started this non-profit organization for this very reason.

Abstract: The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development officially began on January 1, 2021. But what does that mean for scientists? What does the United Nations have to do with hurricane modelling or coral reef data? How can my research be related to this world-wide initiative? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this UN Decade 101 for Scientists. This seminar will describe how the Ocean Decade came about, what it aims to achieve, and how many different groups can be involved. It will delve into the ways in which NOAA, other agencies, and the United States at large are already contributing to the Ocean Decade. Importantly, it will describe how scientists can leverage the Ocean Decade to think big about pressing ocean issues, to find new partners for existing projects, and to expand the reach of their science to the benefit of society. The seminar will describe next steps for getting involved, and give you the tools - and the jargon! - to be able to effectively describe how your research can contribute to Ocean Decade outcomes like A Clean Ocean or A Predicted Ocean, for example. NOAA scientists are already doing research that makes an impact on the ocean and ocean communities, and the Ocean Decade is an opportunity to bring visibility to this work, establish new connections, and broaden that impact.

Bio(s): Ms. Liz Tirpak is a Senior Advisor to the director of NOAA Research and Acting Chief Scientist, Craig McLean.

Title: Promoting Resilient Groundwater and Holistic Watershed Management in Alaska's Kenai Lowlands

Presenter(s): Coowe Walker, Manager, Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve; Mark Rains, Professor, University of South Florida

Sponsor(s): This seminar is sponsored by the NERRS Science Collaborative

Seminar Contact(s): Doug George (douglas.george@noaa.gov) or Nick Soberal (nsoberal@umich.edu)

Remote Access: Please register through Zoom (https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_q_EuX90eS0-G0ZOyNj75yA)

Abstract: In Alaska's Kenai Lowlands, groundwater is key to healthy watersheds and resilient salmon, farms, and communities. Groundwater discharge provides important ecological services to salmon streams by moderating temperatures, maintaining stream flows, delivering nutrients, and creating overwintering habitat. To better understand the availability of groundwater and how human activities impact this resource, researchers at the Kachemak Bay Reserve and the University of South Florida built a predictive model that shows the depth and extent of aquifers and predicts groundwater discharge and recharge.In this webinar, project team members will share how their findings generated new insight into groundwater in southern Kenai Lowland watersheds, and how their model revealed the precariousness of groundwater resources and the potential for competition among users. They will discuss how engagement with stakeholders has increased awareness of the need to actively manage this limited resource, and how the community has begun to shift policies and practices to build toward more resilient groundwater resources.

Abstract: River-impacted coastal regions such as the northern Gulf of Mexico (nGoM) receive large fluxes of freshwater including dissolved and particulate materials that also support highly productive coastal ecosystems. These regions are also being increasingly impacted by extreme events such as storms and hurricanes making them hotspots of biogeochemical cycling. The application of standard empirical or semi-analytic ocean color algorithms to assess optical or biological properties are often inadequate in these coastal waters. We have recently proposed adaptive ocean color algorithms to improve satellite estimates of optical-biogeochemical variables in these optically complex estuarine-shelf waters. The approaches implemented include adaptive: i) atmospheric correction (AD-ATCOR), ii) quasi-analytic (AD-QAA), and 3) chlorophyll (Chl_AD) algorithms. In this presentation we discuss these various adaptive approaches and their application to assess biogeochemical response to extreme events in the nGoM.
Speaker Biography: Eurico D'Sa received the M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bengaluru, India and Ph.D. degree in Marine Sciences from Univ. of Southern Mississippi. He joined the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2004 and is presently a Professor in the department. His research interests are in ocean color remote sensing and bio-optical properties of coastal and ocean waters. He is also interested in using field optical and satellite data in combination with hydrodynamic models to study physical-biogeochemical interactions and processes in coastal waters.

Abstract: Marine protected areas (MPAs) " areas of ocean that are protected for the long-term conservation of nature " are important tools for biodiversity protection, climate resilience, fisheries enhancement, and provide many benefits and services that people depend upon. In the face of the accelerating impacts of climate change, biodiversity loss, and increasing human pressures on the ocean, nations around the world have adopted a goal to protect at least 30% of the world's ocean by 2030 through representative and effective networks of MPAs. In this webinar, speakers will provide an overview of the state of the science on MPA benefits, highlighting what we know about these important ocean conservation tools and the why behind the 30x30 goal. This webinar will help set the stage for a series of webinars focused on how the goal is being addressed in the United States, and speakers will highlight U.S.-based evidence and case studies where possible.

Abstract: We combine satellite observations and numerical models to show that Earth lost 28 trillion tonnes of ice between 1994 and 2017. Arctic sea ice (7.6 trillion tonnes),Antarctic ice shelves (6.5 trillion tonnes), mountain glaciers (6.1 trillion tonnes), the Greenland ice sheet (3.8 trillion tonnes), the Antarctic ice sheet(2.5 trillion tonnes), and Southern Ocean sea ice (0.9 trillion tonnes) haveall decreased in mass. Just over half (58 %) of the ice loss was from the northern hemisphere, and the remainder (42 %) was from the southern hemisphere. The rate of ice loss has risen by 57 % since the 1990s - from 0.8 to 1.2 trillion tonnes per year - owing to increased losses from mountain glaciers, Antarctica,Greenland, and from Antarctic ice shelves. During the same period, the loss of grounded ice from the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets and mountain glaciers raised the global sea level by 34.6 3.1 mm. The majority of all ice losses were driven by atmospheric melting (68 % from Arctic sea ice, mountain glaciers ice shelf calving and ice sheet surface mass balance), with the remaining losses (32 % from ice sheet discharge and ice shelf thinning) being driven by oceanic melting. Altogether, these elements of the cryosphere have taken up 3.2% of the global energy imbalance.

Abstract: U.S. Space Force (USSF) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) project to develop and demonstrate an Electro-Optical / Infrared (EO/IR) LEO-based cloud characterization solution that supports U.S. warfighter operations. During the first phase, the team (ASTRA, STC, and LM) are building a prototype system that includes an 8-channel IR camera system for cloud measurements, the spacecraft, and the ground system which includes mission operations, mission data management, product generation and quality validation, and distribution. The Rapid Revisit Optical Cloud Imager (RROCI) will utilize commercial off-the-shelf systems to produce cloud characterization products, provide theater weather, and comparison of payload outputs to existing satellite data from a 12U satellite that meets USSF mission requirements. The objective is to create a constellation of imagers to replace the cloud characterization capabilities of DMSP. Launch is currently scheduled for Jan 2022.

Remote Access: Register for webinar at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7852037358498897164

Abstract: The 30x30 international marine conservation commitment aims to protect at least 30% of the world's ocean by 2030 through representative and effective networks of marine protected areas (MPAs) that are fully or highly protected. Achieving this target would benefit marine biodiversity and the people who depend on healthy oceans as well as build ocean resilience to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. Accurate reporting on progress toward 30x30 is vital and requires current and reliable information on protected area boundaries and regulations. This presentation is the first in a series focused on how the goal is being addressed in the United States. Speakers will provide background and context for the 30x30 initiative and highlight complementary efforts underway to catalog and classify MPAs. The MPA Guide provides clarity on what the term protected in MPAs really means, and ProtectedSeas' Marine Managed Area data provides spatial data on regulations, allowing analysis of the cumulative contributions of different management authorities to the same ocean space. These efforts contribute to a more complete picture of the quality and quantity of US MPAs to help move the dial towards effective ocean protection in US waters.

How to use diverse incentives to promote effective and equitable MPA governance: New case studies and practical guidance

Presenter(s): Peter Jones of University College London

Sponsor(s): NOAA National MPA Center and OCTO (MPA News, OpenChannels, EBM Tools Network)

Seminar contact: zac.cannizzo@noaa.gov

Remote Access: Register for webinar at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/5703333252590846224

Abstract: MPA governance is the modification of human behavior (e.g., fishing, tourism, coastal development activities) through an appropriate combination of incentives " including economic, legal, participation, communication, and knowledge incentives. Previous research on MPA governance case studies has developed and explored the hypothesis that the use of diverse incentives is critical to developing MPA governance that is both effective (i.e., they achieve conservation objectives and are not paper parks) and equitable (i.e., local customs and traditional ways of life are conserved, participation of local people is provided for, the costs and benefits of conservation are fairly shared). This webinar presents 28 new case studies (including a case study of the emerging policy framework for MPAs beyond national jurisdiction) to test this hypothesis and develop practical guidance for MPA managers and policy practitioners on how to combine a diversity of governance incentives to promote effectiveness and equity. Our research found that while many MPAs already employ a diversity of incentives, many of the incentives needed to be strengthened and others needed to be introduced.

Abstract: The Atlantic menhaden fishery is the largest, by volume, on the Atlantic Coast of the United States, and Atlantic menhaden are an important forage species for predators such as striped bass and bluefish. Driven by the competing interests for this stock, the last assessment process included both single and multi-species models, which allowed for addressing multiple management objectives and for development of ecological reference points.

Keywords: Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management, Multispecies Assessment, Menhaden

Bio(s): Dr. Amy Schueller is a Research Fish Biologist at the Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Beaufort, NC. She is the lead analyst for the Atlantic menhaden and Gulf menhaden stock assessments. Her research interests include stock assessment methods, ecosystem reference points and management, and forage fish dynamics.
