Title: On oxygen content variability in the upper world ocean
Abstract: The oceans are generally not considered a significant long term source (or sink) for oxygen to the atmosphere in the sense that integrated changes in oxygen concentration in the water column are assumed (but not shown to our knowledge) to be negligible. I report on a preliminary analysis of pentadal (5-year running composites) anomalies of dissolved oxygen and Apparent Oxygen Utilization (AOU) content for the period 1955-2000 for the upper 100 m of the world ocean based on WOA01. The water column inventories as a function of time for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (15°-75° latitude) is generally characterized by relatively small linear trends and large decadal variability.

Title: Turbidity potential
Abstract: Currents and visibility can be problems for ocean bottom operations, but proper choice of equipment can mitigate such problems. Problems can range from diminished efficiency to safety concerns. For commercial operations, a gross estimate of conditions is useful to prepare a complete planning survey. For emergency operations, like a downed sub, such information is critical to the success and safety of the operation. This paper proposes a means of quantifying both the current and visibility problem potential. And, it proposes to use an existing data base to map both current and visibility potentials worldwide. A worldwide map of ocean bottom current speed could help researchers identify unknown currents in an area of the ocean that is hard to reach and test.

Title: Management of Shipboard Sensor Data (SSD, Also Known As Underway Data)//Scientific Computer System (SCS) developed and maintained by NOAA Marine & Aviation Operations (NMAO)
Abstract: NODC periodically receives a standard suite of shipboard sensor data from each NOAA ship with the Scientific Computer System (SCS). These are surface oceanographic, meteorological data including measurements, at 30 second interval, of salinity and temperature from thermosalinographs, bottom depth, wind speed and direction, atmospheric temperature, pressure and humidity, position and date/time. The NODC archives original data and then processes, quality-controls, and loads them into database in Oracle using a Windows-based interactive, automated application program developed with M/S Access and Open Data Base Connectivity (ODBC) driver. The SSD can be viewed, searched, queried, and downloaded from operations database server via its web site, http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/ssd/.

Title: Managing and Distributing Operational Oceanography Data at the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center
Abstract: An end-to-end, state-of-the-art environmental data and information system for managing and distributing operational oceanography data, developed at the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), is presented in this paper. The purposes of this paper are: (1) to describe the development and implementation of the system and (2) to illustrate the procedures of quality control, loading oceanographic data into the NODC ocean database. The NODC participates in the Argo project and the Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP), which are sponsored by the Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) program of the World Climate Research Programme. The NODC ocean data management system currently focuses on acquiring , processing, and distributing ocean data collected by Argo and GTSPP. The data stream of the two operational ocean observing systems contains upper ocean temperature and salinity data mainly from Expendable Bathythermographs (XBTs) but also from Conductivity-Temperature-Depths (CTDs) and bottles. In addition, there are now a substantial number of profiling floats operating in the oceans also included in the NODC ocean database. Argo has used resources from 15 or so countries to make unprecedented in-situ observations of the global ocean. All Argo data are publicly available in near real-time via the GTS (Global Telecommunications System) and in scientifically quality-controlled form with a few months delay. The NODC operates the Global Argo Data Repository of Argo data for long-term archiving and serves Argo latest (daily) data in the NODC version of Argo netCDF and tab-delimited spreadsheet text formats to the public through the NODC Web site at http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/argo/. The GTSPP is a cooperative international program. It maintains a global ocean T-S resource with data that are both up-to-date and of the highest quality possible. Both real-time data transmitted over the (GTS), and delayed-mode data received by contribution countries are acquired and quality controlled by the Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS, Canada) and are eventually incorporated into a continuously managed database maintained by the NODC. Information and data are made publicly available at http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/GTSPP/. In the future, we will develop Web-based tools that will allow users on the Web to query and subset Argo delayed-mode data by parameter, location, time, and other attributes such as instrument types and quality flags.

Title: Spreading of the Antarctic Intermediate Water in the western Pacific
Abstract: The traditional view before this study has been that the Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) extends to the mid-latitudes of the western North Pacific, as indicated by high oxygen tongues in the early map of oxygen. Careful examination of historical data suggests that, although relatively high oxygen water does exist in the Okinawa Trough, it is connected with the high oxygen water in the South China Sea through the Luzon Strait. AAIW is traced to only about 15?N and there is no indication of a further northward flow of AAIW along the western boundary.


Wednesday 30 June 2004 @ 1200h

Title: Late Summer Chlorophyll Blooms in the Oligotrophic North Pacific Subtropical Gyre
Abstract: In the late summer of 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2003 satellite observations of surface chlorophyll from SeaWiFS recorded large blooms in the oligotrophic North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) near 30°N and between 130-160°W. The largest blooms covered more than 350,000 km2 and lasted as long as 4 months. They are distinct from the surface seasonal cycle of chlorophyll in both timing and amplitude. The blooms are not associated with either SSH or SST anomalies indicative of a nutrient flux from changes in subsurface structure, nor do they appear to be forced by nutrient fertilization from dust deposition or rainfall. These blooms are compared with summer blooms that have been previously observed in this region by in situ studies, and some potential causes for them are discussed.

Title: Historical and Near Real-Time Physical, Chemical, and Biological Oceanographic Data in Support of the International Polar Year
Abstract: The U.S. NOAA/NESDIS/National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), located in Silver Spring, Maryland, has extensive capabilities in archiving and providing public access to polar oceanographic and coastal data, products, and information. The /World Ocean Database/ (WOD), a scientifically quality-controlled, global, oceanographic database, is the most comprehensive database of historical ocean profile data and plankton measurements in existence. The World Data Center for Oceanography (WDC) in Silver Spring conducts international exchange of oceanographic observations in accordance with the principles set forth by the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU). The WDC is collocated with and operated by the NODC, and it also leads the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Global Oceanographic Data Archaeology and Rescue (GODAR) project, which attempts to locate and rescue historical data that are at risk of being lost due to media decay or neglect, and the IOC World Ocean Database (WOD) project, which is intended to stimulate international exchange of modern oceanographic data. The WOD will continue to be enhanced as new data is received through the WDC, IOC projects, and data incorporated into the NODC Archive Management and Metadata System (AMS). The Ocean Archive System (OAS) is the public Web interface to the AMS, and it provides access to original sets of ocean data as they were provided to (and archived by) the NODC. The NODC also participates in the Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP), which is a cooperative international program designed to develop and maintain a global ocean T-S resource with data that are as up-to-date and of the highest quality as possible. It also operates the long-term archive for Argo data, also known as the Global Argo Data Repository (GADR). The NOAA Central Library, also a division of NODC, maintains the largest meteorological collection in the western hemisphere and supports extensive oceanographic and fishery materials and data related to exploration in the polar regions, which is augmented by the collection at the Regional Branch in Seattle, WA. This presentation will describe the various ongoing activities within NODC that can support the mission of the International Polar Year 2007.

Title: An improved QuikSCAT weekly wind speed data set for coastal and high latitude applications
Abstract: Accurate satellite-derived measurements of marine wind speed are necessary for a variety of oceanographic applications. The SeaWinds instrument on the QuikSCAT satellite has measured global marine winds since its launch in 1999. However, microwave backscatter from land and ice limits the coverage and utility of QuikSCAT wind speed measurements near the coast and at high latitudes. A new QuikSCAT weekly wind speed data set has been developed with several improvements that address these and other limitations of the data. The improved QuikSCAT data set includes new land and sea ice mask information adapted from the AVHRR Pathfinder sea surface temperature (SST) v5.0 and the Optimally Interpolated SST version 2 data sets, respectively. Additionally, near shore pixels originally contaminated by backscatter from land have been filled by several methods, including simple median filling, an inverse-distance weighted mean, and an objective analysis technique that considers the spatial structure of the wind speed data. The gap filling methods and QuikSCAT wind speed data were then evaluated by comparing with in situ wind speed measurements taken from near shore and open
ocean buoys and marine weather stations. The improvements in the new QuikSCAT weekly wind speed data set and statistical comparison with the in situ wind stations are discussed here.


Monday, December 13, 2004 @ 1200h (SSMC4, rm 13153; NOS Seminar)
Title: Local Knowledge and Western Science in Alaska's Coastal Communities
Speaker: Glen Seamann, NCCOS
Abstract: Alaska's remote coastal communities, populated largely by indigenous Alaskans, have expressed an interest and need to enhance local knowledge with western science to be more meaningfully involved in the research, monitoring, and management of the marine, coastal, and fisheries resources on which they depend.Concurrently, many federal, state, tribal, and non-profit entities have engaged in efforts with varying success to build capacity in these sciences and to improve employment opportunities by agencies and community-based organizations. This talk will provide insights into the need for and challenges in building capacity in the NOAA sciences in rural Alaska. It will summarize regional educational and capacity building efforts in the Chugach Region in Southcentral Alaska, as well as provide examples of past, current, and developing efforts to establish innovative, non-traditional education and capacity building programs at a broader state level to be responsive to unique needs of indigenous peoples. Lastly, this presentation will offer recommendations to NOAA on actions they may take to enhance education and capacity building programs for Native Alaskans in the coastal, marine, and fisheries sciences.


Tuesday, December 14, 2004a @ 1130h (SSMC4, rm 13153; NOS Seminar)
Title: The Marine Conservation Science Program at WWF-US
Speaker: Helen Fox, Marine Conservation Biologist, WWF Conservation Science Program
Abstract: Ecoregional conservation underpins WWF�s Conservation Science Program. A number of ecoregions are currently translating their visions into concrete conservation
actions, including creating MPAs. Creating networks of no-take reserves is already seen as a tool to preserve biodiversity, provide stability against ecological disasters,
and aid in long-term fisheries management, as well as a potential strategy to combat the effects of global climate change. We are investigating how best to design marine
reserves, following key ecological principles and incorporating connectivity.Understanding how marine populations are connected is difficult to assess, however,
givenrecruitment dynamics and currents that vary at multiple scales. Instead, we are developing a connectivity index based on general rules of thumb: reserves should
belarge enough to encompass short-distance dispersers, and spaced far enough apart so long-distance dispersers can find safe harbor. NOAA has already funded and is
collaborating with WWF on a number of projects, and we see several exciting areas to pursue that fall under the umbrella of increasing conservation effectiveness and
taking advantage of WWF's extensive International Network.


Tuesday, December 14, 2004b @ 1500h (SSMC4, rm 13153; NOS Seminar)
Title: Relating Land Cover, Nonpoint Pollution, and Erosion: N-SPECT, a GIS modeling Tool
Speaker: Dave Eslinger, CSC
Abstract: The NOAA Coastal Services Center has developed the Nonpoint-Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool (N-SPECT) to examine the relationships between land cover, soil characteristics, topography, and precipitation in order to assess spatial and temporal patterns of surface water runoff, nonpoint-source pollution, and erosion. The results of N-SPECT analyses are intended to be used as screening tools to help understand and predict the impacts of management decisions on water quality and, potentially, on nearshore coral health. Land cover, topography, soils, and precipitation data sets from Hawaii are used to estimate rainfall runoff volume as well as suspended sediment concentrations and total loads at both the local (pixel) and watershed scales. Coefficients representing the contribution of each land cover class to observed pollutant concentrations are applied to land cover data sets to approximate pollutant loads and concentrations. These coefficients were derived from published studies and local water quality sampling data. For each pollutant analyzed, water quality ratings are assigned spatially by comparing pollutant concentrations calculated by N-SPECT to user-defined water quality standards. Knowledge of the distribution of areas demonstrating sub-standard water quality can help resource managers and planners target areas needing better management practices. N-SPECT also provides functionality to compare current land cover conditions to theoretical changes in both land use and land cover. N-SPECT is a GIS tool implemented in Environmental Systems Research Institute's ArcMap software package, and requires the Spatial Analyst extension.
