Land Surface Temperature Calibration and Validation

Date and Time: September 01, 2011, 11:30-12:30 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910); Room 3404
Speaker(s): John Kochendorfer (NOAA Air Resources Laboratory)
Speaker's Email: John.Kochendorfer@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Air Resources Laboratory
Abstract:

Satellite based land surface temperature (LST) measurements can be used to monitor evapotranspiration, soil moisture, and other fundamental components of the earth's energy budget at a high temporal resolution. The LST is retrieved from thermal infrared or passive microwave remote sensing measurements that rely upon atmospheric and/or surface emissivity corrections that are associated with large uncertainties. Because of the spatial heterogeneity of the land surface, satellite pixels can contain information related to several land types, further confounding the interpretation and accurate retrieval of LST measurements. Data retrieved from these remote orbiting platforms rely on in-situ testbeds for sensor validation in order to minimize sensor drift errors, which can introduce unwanted trends in longer term data time series. The work presented here uses data from existing NOAA surface-based measurement networks that have been augmented to identify and constrain measurement errors associated with remotely sensed LST. In partnership with the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI), NOAA scientists combined in-situ and airplane-measured LST to map the variability of LST over an eastern hardwood forest and grassland/forest mix in East Tennessee. These data are also being combined with land-surface models to address the challenges of measuring LST in areas with considerable land-surface heterogeneity.

Coastal and Island Watershed Management Tools and Initiatives: An Update from the Center for Watershed Protection

Date and Time: September 01, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910); 2nd Floor, Library
Speaker(s): Karen Capiella (Director, CWP Research Program) and David J. Hirschman (Program Director CWP)
Speaker's Email: Karen Capiella (kc@cwp.org) and David J. Hirschman (djh@cwp.org)
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS OCRM
Abstract:

The Center for Watershed Protection will provide an update on the results and progress of several coastal and island watershed management initiatives over the past few years. With funding from the Cooperate Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET), we developed tools to manage the impacts of land use and stormwater runoff on water resources of the Atlantic coastal plain. The resulting Coastal Plain Watershed Information Center contains products such as an article series on adapting watershed protection tools for the coastal plain, a coastal community watershed management self-assessment checklist, case studies of successful low impact development (LID) application in the coastal plain, and a photo library and slideshow for use in educating decision makers about the importance and applicability of LID in the coastal plain. Other coastal watershed work has included refinement of techniques for detecting illicit discharges in coastal waters, and, working with Maryland Sea Grant, efforts to assist coastal communities with adapting to climate change.

Our island watershed work includes efforts to improve watershed and stormwater management on Pacific Islands working with the Horsley Witten Group and NOAA's Coral Reef program. The work has involved developing a watershed plan framework for the Piti-Asan watershed in Guam, revising (soon to be adopted, we hope!) Guam's erosion control and stormwater regulations, adapting stormwater BMP designs to island applications, conducting pollution prevention training in Saipan, CNMI, and providing watershed training for various audiences. Most recently, the Center, Horsley Witten, and NOAA hosted the Pacific Island Watershed Institute in Hawaii. In the Caribbean, we have been working with NOAA Restoration Partners and NFWF to coordinate implementation of the watershed management plan for Guanica Bay in Puerto Rico- including studies to evaluate the potential effects of restoring the Guanica lagoon, a feasibility study for constructing a treatment wetland to enhance pollutant removal at the Guanica wastewater treatment plant and startup of a roundtable to discuss how to improve the market for shade grown coffee in Puerto Rico- as well as implementation of stormwater retrofits in La Parguerra, PR.

About the Speakers:

Karen Cappiella is Director of Research at the Center for Watershed Protection. Karen is a former GIS guru who now manages the Center's Research Program.

Date and Time: September 07, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-4 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD, 20910), Room 8150.
Speaker(s): Ingrid Guch (Director, NESDIS Cooperative Research Program)
Speaker's Email: Ingrid.Guch@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and the NOAA Environmental Data Management Committee
Abstract:

There is a proposed new data sharing policy for NOAA Grantees. This talk will provide an overview of the policy for federal program managers and federal program officers. The policy is currently under a limited comment period and the comments received will be presented at the NOAA Observing System Council (NOSC) for consideration. If there are no objections the policy will be implemented by incorporating new language into competition announcements and new special award conditions. The proposed policy requires grantees who are producing data that are expected to be useful to others to share their data no later than 90 days after their award period ends. If implemented, this will be a significant change for grantees and require outreach and training.

Pedaling Climate: A Bike Trip Across the Country, Talking About Climate

Date and Time: September 07, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910); 2nd Floor, Library
Speaker(s): David Goodrich [NOAA Climate Program Office (retired)]
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC Library and Information Services
Abstract:

After retiring from the NOAA Climate Program Office in January, the author left on a coast-to-coast bicycle ride in May. The trip ran 4205 miles, with quite a few adventures, including holding Lincoln's axe in Illinois, having a tornado party in Missouri, climbing a 10,200' pass in Colorado and camping at a uranium ghost town in Wyoming. In the process there were presentations to 17 groups at 11 different venues about climate change. Some of the impacts of climate change along the way were hard to avoid: sea level rise in Delaware; drought in Kansas; and forest loss in the Rockies. Some ideas and strategies for communicating the issues of climate will be proposed.

Community Resilience, Part I: Assessing Vulnerabilities Using the Roadmap for Adapting to Coastal Risk

Date and Time: September 07, 2011, 14:00-15:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Seminar available via webinar only (see Remote Access and Notes section below)
Speaker(s): Tashya Allen and David Betenbaugh (NOAA Coastal Services Center)
Speaker's Email: Tashya.Allen@noaa.gov; David.Betenbaugh@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Coastal Services Center
Abstract:

Looking for a participatory approach to assessing community risk and vulnerabilities to hazards and climate change? Need to know which types of data and information can be helpful in characterizing your hazards story? Then sign up for this webinar, which will highlight a customizable approach for assessing hazard and climate change threats and impacts. This approach, the Roadmap for Adapting to Coastal Risk, is a participatory process for assessing vulnerability. The Roadmap helps communities characterize their vulnerabilities to hazards and climate change and assess how existing planning and policy efforts can incorporate vulnerability issues.

The Roadmap process helps communities move beyond general awareness of hazard and climate change impacts to actually identify risks and the potential actions that can reduce these risks. The presentation will also provide information on additional resources for identifying and communicating potential risks and vulnerabilities.

National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Weather Element ("ugly string") Verification

Date and Time: September 07, 2011, 14:00-15:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-2 (1325 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD, 20910), Room 2358
Speaker(s): Paul Fajman (NOAA Meteorological Development Laboratory, Office of Science and Technology)
Speaker's Email: paul.fajman@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Meteorological Development Laboratory, Office of Science and Technology Seminars
Abstract:

National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) forecasts have been produced by the National Weather Service (NWS) since 2003. The NDFD contains several different forecasted weather elements (e.g. temperature, winds, cloud cover). The Meteorological Development Lab performs monthly verifications on many weather elements of the NDFD. Until now, the weather type (weather string) forecast has not been verified. The weather string is coded text that contains 5 pieces of information. Those pieces of information are: coverage/probability, precipitation type, intensity, visibility, and attributes. Each forecast can have up to 5 of these strings. Verification of the weather string is challenging due to the complexity of the string and the subjective nature of worded forecasts. A methodology was developed for this project based on reclassification of the weather string into grouped subsets which facilitated verification. This seminar will present the developed methodology and the results obtained from it.

Dynamics and Predictability of Tropical Cyclone Formation, Structure Change and Track

Date and Time: September 08, 2011, 10:00-11:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA World Weather Building (5200 Auth Road, Camp Springs, MD 20746); Room 707
Speaker(s): Xiaqoing Zhou (Pennsylvania State University)
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP Environmental Modelling Center seminars
Abstract:

Secondary eyewalls (SEs) are very common in intense tropical cyclones. The storms usually experience dramatic changes in both intensity and structure after the SE formation. However, the sizes of SEs and associated intensity change can vary in cases. Numerical sensitivity experiments and observational studies are conducted to investigate the possible mechanisms from both internal thermodynamics/dynamics and large-scale environment on secondary eyewall replacement cycles.

I will also present some recent works on the dynamics and predictability of tropical cyclone formation and track will be introduced. Using ensemble forecasts from both the mesoscale regional model and global model, we examined study factors affecting the genesis of Hurricane Karl (2010) and the sudden track change of Typhoon Megi (2010) based on the discrepancies between ensemble members.

Bioacoustic Absorption Spectroscopy (BAS) For Long Term Observation of Fish

Date and Time: September 08, 2011, 11:00-12:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910), 4th Floor, Room 4817 (room capacity: 25 seats)
Speaker(s): Dr. Orest Diachok (Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory)
Speaker's Email: Orest.Diachok@jhuapl.edu
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) and NOAA Integrated Ocean Observing Systems (IOOS)
Abstract:

Bioacoustic Absorption Spectroscopy (BAS), which exploits frequency selective attenuation due to swim bladder resonances, could be incorporated into ocean observatories for continuous, long term monitoring of fish populations. BAS measurements employ environmentally friendly source levels (~170 dB) and provide unbiased (by avoidance and proximity to boundaries) estimates of number densities vs fish length (and with ancillary information, species). Several previously reported experiments, including BAS II which was conducted in the Santa Barbara Channel in 2002, demonstrated the power of this method. The BAS II experiment employed a unique, light weight, ultra-broadband (0.3-10 kHz) source, which can be deployed between a float and an anchor, and a fixed 16 element vertical hydrophone array, separated by 4 km. This type of source and hydrophone array would be suitable for ocean observatories. The prerequite research, deployment options, and benefits of incorporating BAS measurement systems into ocean observatories will be addressed.

Speaker's Email: Seaberry.nachbar@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries
Abstract:

The Ocean Guardian School program works directly with schools and encourages each school to make a commitment to the protection and conservation of its local watersheds, the world's ocean, and special ocean areas, like national marine sanctuaries. The school makes this commitment by proposing and then implementing a school- or community-based conservation project. Now in its third year, the program has resulted in thousands of pounds of trash removed from local beaches, single use plastics banned at school functions, and over 75,000 pounds of non-native plants removed.

About the Speaker: Seaberry Nachbar has been working for the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries for nine years and has worked for NOAA since 1999 as a fisheries biologist and education/outreach coordinator for NCCOS and NOAA Fisheries. In 2002, she developed the Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program in the Chesapeake Bay area and has since expanded to California. The NOAA B-WET Program is an environmental education program that provides students and teachers the opportunity to directly connect with their environment through hands-on, inquiry-based activities that are an integral part of the school curriculum. Seaberry also coordinates and oversees the Ocean Guardian School program and is the National Evaluation Coordinator for the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries.

OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC Central Library
Abstract:

At present we are mid hurricane season 2011 and the National Weather Service has recently released an updated forecast projecting a significant increase in the number of named hurricanes that potentially could jeopardize the nation's coastal communities. The United States can rest assured that NOAA's Office of Coast Survey's Navigation Response Teams are on-call. These mobile first responders will use the latest hydrographic mapping techniques to quickly ensure the safety of our navigable waterways and are open for access. The Navigation Response Branch supported local authority survey requests after the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and recently for past March's Pacific Ocean tsunami. An efficient response approach is the result of a proven track record of successful emergency navigation responses. Interagency support and professional development is essential to how a Navigation Response Team can maintain their high level of readiness, and we will be discussing some of the main drivers to a successful navigation response. We will also be discussing the prepositioned assets and resources available to respond, skill sets required, and ongoing activities to support this mission. The Navigation Response Branch invites you to discover just how an NRT prepares to serve the nation in recovering from a coastal crisis. Please join our upcoming Brown Bag discussion.

Abstract:

Advanced mapping, modeling, and assessment of coastal resources are critical components of coastal marine spatial planning, and support sustainable management and use of healthy marine and Great Lakes habitats. In this seminar, we review three geospatial database projects (The Great Lakes Geographic Information System, the Lakebed Alteration Decision Support Tool, and the Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Framework) which we have developed to assist coastal and marine spatial planning of Great Lakes aquatic habitats. We discuss how the public may access the geospatial data and decision support tools developed for these projects, and the applications and future directions of our work.

Application of the National Historic Preservation Act Outside the U.S.

Date and Time: September 13, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910); 2nd Floor, Library
Speaker(s): Mark Spalding (President of the Ocean Foundation)
Speaker's Email: mspalding@oceanfdn.org
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA GCIL and NOAA International Affairs Council Law of the Sea Convention Working Group
Abstract:

Mark Spalding, President of the Ocean Foundation, will talk about the Okinawa Dugong v. Gates. The case involves the application of Section 402 of the National Historic Preservation Act to a federal project outside of the United States likely to affect the Okinawa Dugong, a marine mammal classified as vulnerable by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

In Dugong, plaintiffs challenged the U.S. Defense Department's plan to build an airbase off the coast of the Japanese island, Okinawa, and DOD's failure to consider - as required by section 402 of the National Historic Preservation Act - the impacts of its plans on the Okinawa Dugong, a marine mammal species listed as a protected "natural monument" on the Japanese Register of Cultural Properties. The case presents an unusual example of the use of U.S. historic preservation law to protect natural heritage outside of the United States. Mr. Spalding will discuss the case, and more broadly the relationship between domestic and international law.

Recent Advances in Data Assimilation with the Local Ensemble Transform Kalman Filter

Date and Time: September 13, 2011, 14:00-15:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: World Weather Building (5200 Auth Road, Camp Springs, MD 20746); Room 707
Speaker(s): Eugenia Kalnay (Distinguished University Professor, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, University of Maryland) and Former students (Shu-Chih Yang, Takemasa Miyoshi, Hong Li, Junjie Liu, Chris Danforth, Ji-Sun Kang, Matt Hoffman, Steve Penny, Steve Greybush, Tamara Singleton)
Speaker's Email: kalnay@atmos.umd.edu
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA seminar series)
Abstract:

The Local Ensemble Transform Kalman Filter (LETKF, Hunt et al., 2007) is an EnKF with particular advantages: it assimilates all the local observations simultaneously, and it outputs the weights that relate the analysis ensemble to the forecast ensemble. This makes possible a number of algorithms that improve the ability of the LETKF compared to a standard EnKF: a no-cost smoother, Running in Place (RIP) and the Quasi Outer Loop (QOL), forecast sensitivity to the observations without the need for an adjoint model, low resolution analysis without degradation by interpolating weights, adaptive inflation and estimation of observational errors, and others.

We will show applications of these algorithms to both OSSEs and real data examples, including 7 years of global ocean data assimilation (Penny, 2011), LETKF-RIP applied to typhoon spin-up (Yang et al., 2011), estimation of surface carbon fluxes from atmospheric data assimilation (Kang et al., 2011), and others.

Abstract:

Fish harvests in the Arctic Ocean are small, yet the largest U.S. commercial fisheries lie immediately south in the Bering Sea. Bering Sea pollock quotas recently fell due to poor recruitment during a run of warm years (2001-2005) only to be followed by a run of cold years (2006-2010) and increased pollock abundance. A large ecosystem st s to understand and forecast these changes. The Bering Sea project is funded by the North Pacific Research Board and the National Science Foundation (http://bsierp.nprb.org/). Join us to learn more about climate impacts on Alaska fisheries.

Foraging Behavior and Habitat Associations of Newly Independent Northern Fur Seal Pups (Callorhinus ursinus)

Date and Time: September 15, 2011, 12:00-12:30 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]

Abstract:

Northern fur seal pups and juveniles experience the highest mortality rates at sea compared to other age groups, but our knowledge of this life stage remains limited because individuals may not return to shore for 2 years after leaving their rookeries. The foraging behavior and habitat associations of 35 newly independent pups from Bering Island, Russia were investigated using Mk-10AL satellite tags to track pup locations and diving behavior between November 2007 and March 2008. Stomach temperature telemetry was used to identify the duration and timing of ingestion events for the first time in wide-ranging pups. Pup locations were compared to the distribution of several oceanographic features using remotely sensed data including: chlorophyll a concentrations, bathymetry, sea surface temperature, and eddies. Monte Carlo logistic modeling was used to identify the habitat associations of pups, and we compared pup behavior to the known habitat associations of adult females. Pups showed a strong association with regions with high chlorophyll a concentrations, high sea surface temperatures, and greater distances from shore. There was a negative correlation between pup locations and water depth, and pups had no association with eddies. However, pups that encountered eddies during their migration had the longest ingestion events near eddy peripheries. The results indicate that although pups are attracted to certain oceanographic features that may indicate higher prey abundance, they may have not yet learned to take advantage of prey-rich regions associated with eddies.

Halophyte Hydroponics: Exploring the Feasibility of Extracting Excess Nitrogen from Shrimp Aquaculture with Atriplex hortensis, an Edible Crop

Date and Time: September 15, 2011, 12:30-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910); 2nd Floor, Library

Abstract:

The vast majority of the world's shrimp supply comes from industrial shrimp farms in the coastal areas of tropical developing countries. Shrimp farming practices degrade tropical coastal ecosystems in many ways, including conversion of mangrove forests, soil salinization, and eutrophication of coastal waters. Shrimp pond water quality is maintained by constant water exchange with the surrounding environment. This constant water exchange stresses freshwater resources in the area, and the discharged effluent alters the water chemistry of coastal ecosystems. This research addresses the eutrophication of coastal waters and explores the feasibility of growing halophytes hydroponically to extract excess nitrogen from the pond water before it is discharged into the surrounding environment.

This study was conducted in Hilo, Hawai'i, situated within the tropics. Five plant coverage levels of the halophyte Atriplex hortensis were tested to examine the effect of relative plant biomass on nitrogen levels in shrimp aquaculture water. Complete block design was implemented with each treatment represented once per block. There were six blocks total, and each block consisted of five 20-gallon glass aquaria nested in a 300-gallon plastic tank filled with freshwater for temperature control. Each glass aquarium was stocked with Pacific white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, at 100 animals per m2, the stocking density of intensive shrimp farming. The water in the glass aquaria was a mixture of seawater and Hawai'i county water to achieve 20ppt salinity. The only nutrient input to the system was the daily feeding of L. vannamei. A. hortensis was grown hydroponically in floating platforms resting on top of the water. Three forms of nitrogen - nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia - were measured via spectrophotometer weekly over seven weeks.

The observed rates of decrease for nitrate levels were 1.7 to 2.2 times greater in treatments with plants than in the control treatment. This suggests that incorporating A. hortensis into the shrimp aquaculture system can lower the concentration of nitrate in the water. As A. hortensis is edible, a second crop could be produced from this nitrate mitigation method with no additional nitrogen input. There is potential for halophyte hydroponics to be developed as a way to remove excess nitrate from shrimp farm effluent.

An Integrated Uncertainty and Ensemble-Based Data Assimilation Approach for Improved Operational Streamflow Predictions

Date and Time: September 16, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA World Weather Building (5200 Auth Road, Camp Springs, MD 20746); Room 707
Speaker(s): Kevin (Minxue) He (NWS/OHD)
Speaker's Email: kevin.he@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP Environmental Modelling Center seminars
Abstract:

The study proposes an integrated uncertainty and ensemble-based data assimilation framework (ICEA) and evaluates its viability in providing operational streamflow predictions via assimilating snow water equivalent (SWE) data. This step-wise framework applies a parameter uncertainty analysis algorithm (ISURF) to identify the uncertainty structure of sensitive model parameters, which is subsequently formulated into an Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF) to generate updated snow states for streamflow prediction. The framework is coupled to the US National Weather Service (NWS) snow and rainfall-runoff models. Its applicability is demonstrated for an operational basin of a western River Forecast Center (RFC) of the NWS. Performance of the framework is evaluated against existing operational baseline (RFC predictions), the stand-alone ISURF, and the stand-alone EnKF. Results indicate that the ensemble-mean prediction of ICEA considerably outperforms predictions from the other three scenarios investigated, particularly in the context of predicting high flows (top 5th percentile). The ICEA streamflow ensemble predictions capture the variability of the observed streamflow well, however the ensemble is not wide enough to consistently contain the range of streamflow observations in the study basin. These findings indicate that the ICEA has the potential to supplement the current operational (deterministic) forecasting method in terms of providing improved single-valued (e.g., ensemble mean) streamflow predictions as well as meaningful ensemble predictions.

A Regression Model Designed for Ensemble Forecasts

Speaker(s): David Unger (NOAA Climate Prediction Center, Camp Springs, Maryland)
Speaker's Email: David.Unger@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NWS Science and Technology Seminars
Abstract:

An ensemble forecast provides a dynamically derived estimate of the range of solutions from a numerical model. In general, numerical models require calibration in order to reduce the biases in their solutions, particularly at longer lead times. Regression has frequently been used to calibrate model output due to its ease of application and solid mathematical foundation. There are, however, some subtle challenges involved in the application of regression to ensemble forecasts.

A linear regression model especially designed for use on ensemble forecasts will be presented in this seminar. The ensemble regression model requires minimal additional overhead to derive or implement, in comparison to standard linear regression. Ensemble regression is ideally suited for use on long lead climate and weather forecasts where skill is low and information on the expected probability distribution of the forecast element is important. One of its favorable attributes is that the calibrated forecasts do not necessarily "regress to the mean" as is the case for standard regression applied to low skill forecasts. The ensemble regression forecasts also preserve the non-Gaussian forecast distribution predicted by the dynamic models. These and other statistical characteristics will be discussed in this talk. This forecast technique has been used at the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) on multi-model ensemble forecasts for 8-14 day temperatures from North American Ensemble Forecast System (NAEFS), as well as on forecasts from the NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFS). The regression procedure will be demonstrated on sea surface temperature forecasts from the CFS.

Abstract:

Wetlands cover over 30 percent of the State of Delaware. These ecosystems are being threatened, in particular, by development associated with the growing state population. Wetlands serve a variety of ecosystem functions, including surface water retention, nutrient transformation, coastal storm surge detention, species habitat, and carbon sequestration. Our analysis links wetland functions in Delaware to ecosystem services - the contributions that these functions make to the well-being of human populations - for purposes of economic valuation.

There is little disagreement that wetland ecosystem functions provide valuable services. The relationship of some services, such as recreation, to wetlands is more apparent than others, for example, flood protection. From a social welfare perspective, failure to incorporate the values of as full a suite of ecosystem services as possible may result in inefficient resource management (i.e., the total value of goods and services provided by the landscape is not maximized). Our analysis demonstrates a framework designed to evaluate tradeoffs in multiple ecosystem services of land and resource management scenarios. Specifically, we apply the Natural Capital Project's Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Tradeoffs (InVEST) tool to quantify changes in carbon storage and sequestration, water purification, flood protection, and biodiversity associated with projected wetland losses in Delaware. The InVEST approach advances the science of ecosystem services assessment and valuation by employing spatially-explicit ecological production functions to quantify net changes in the delivery of ecosystem services resulting from specified land use or management changes. Quantifying the net change as opposed to the absolute value of services allows decision-makers to consider tradeoffs associated with marginal changes in ecosystem functions, and provides more meaningful estimates to inform policy. The results of our analysis, both biophysical and economic endpoints, provide additional information regarding less transparent ecosystem services of wetlands to support efficient landscape-level land use planning.

Stressor Gradients and Spatial Narratives: Linking Science, Stories, and Games in the St. Louis River Estuary

Date and Time: September 23, 2011, 14:00-15:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, Lake Superior Hall (4840 South State Road, Ann Arbor, MI)
Speaker(s): David Hart (GIS Specialist, University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute)
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory
Abstract:

In order to promote research on Lake Superior issues and help get the new Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve off to a good start, the Sea Grant programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin released a special call for proposals in 2008 that encouraged collaborative research on the St. Louis River Estuary. The selected project links science on stressor gradients for the St. Louis River watershed with development of spatial narratives for the estuary. The project provides an exciting linkage of natural and social science methods to promote spatial literacy and coastal stewardship.

Bathymetric Effects on the Circulation of Cross Sound, Alaska

Date and Time: September 28, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-4 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD, 20910), Room 8150.
Speaker(s): Chris Paternostro (NOS/CO-OPS/Coastal and Estuarine Circulation Analysis Team)
Speaker's Email: Christopher.Paternostro@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services
Abstract:

Cross Sound is a carved crossing of several fjord embayments set in southeast Alaska's Alexander Archipelago. Between May and August 2010, ten moorings were deployed at the entrances to Cross Sound, Alaska and at key internal locations within the Sound. Instruments on each mooring measured current velocity, temperature, and salinity to determine circulation of the Sound. The tidal range in this region is very large (>4 m) causing high current speeds (peak speed measured at 258 cm s-1). Due to the many constrictions and the rugged topography, the flow predominantly follows the bathymetry throughout the Sound across Glacier Bay and into Icy Strait. In this high speed environment, the bathymetry determines a majority of the net transport and creates unique frictional forces causing high and low frequency tidal influences.

About the Speaker: Chris is the lead of the Coastal and Estuarine Circulation Analysis Team within CO-OPS. Chris holds a master's degree from Texas A&M University and has been working as a chemical and physical oceanographer for 21 years. He was born in Dallas and attended university in Galveston, Texas. His interests lie in studying the dynamics of fjords mainly in Alaska. He has ongoing research in Puget Sound, Cross Sound, Cook Inlet and Mobile Bay.

The Coastal and Inland Flooding Observation and Warning (CI-FLOW) Project - Tracking The Raindrop from the Sky to the Summit to the Sea: Hurricane Irene 2011.

Date and Time: September 30, 2011, 09:30 AM - 11:30 AM CDT (10:30-12:30 EDT) [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-2 (1325 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD, 20910), Room 8246 (broadcast).
Speaker(s): Suzanne Van Cooten, JJ Gourley, and Kendra Dresback (National Weather Center, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK)
Speaker's Email: Suzanne.Van.Cooten@noaa.gov; jj.gourley@noaa.gov; kendra.dresback@noaa.gov
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NWS Office of Hydrologic Development, in conjunction with the OAR National Severe Storms Laboratory
Abstract:

Hurricane Irene's landfall near Morehead City, NC provided a test for the Coastal and Inland Flooding Observation and Warning (CI-FLOW) project. Prototyped during the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season, CI-FLOW produced NOAA's first real-time forecasts of total water level (rainfall+river flow+storm surge+waves+tides) for Hurricane Earl and Tropical Storm Nicole. Led by NSSL and National Sea Grant, the CI-FLOW research consortium successfully produced fully-automated 84-hour simulations of total water level for coastal North Carolina during Hurricane Irene. The CI-FLOW system continues to produce routine forecasts of total water level every six hours and may face another valuable test through the conclusion of the 2011 hurricane season.

Do we have the Necessary Ingredients for Hurricane Intensity Forecasting?

Date and Time: September 30, 2011, 12:00-13:00 ETZ [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA World Weather Building (5200 Auth Road, Camp Springs, MD 20746); Room 707
Speaker(s): Shuyi S. Chen (RSMAS/MPO, University of Miami)
Speaker's Email: schen@rsmas.miami.edu
OneNOAA Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP Environmental Modelling Center seminars
Abstract:

Rapid intensification and decay in hurricanes continue to be a major challenge for hurricane prediction. The lack of skill in forecasts of storm structure and intensity may be attributed to deficiencies in the current prediction models: insufficient grid resolution, inadequate model physics such as PBL/surface and microphysics parameterizations, the lack of full coupling to a dynamic ocean, and the lack of observations and/or data assimilation for accurate model initial conditions. In recent years, major efforts have taken place in research and operational communities to address these model deficiencies and have shown somewhat limited improvements in intensity forecasts, which vary from case to case. A fundamental question remains unanswered: what is the predictability of hurricane intensity (e.g., measured by peak winds)? How model error and initial condition error affect intensity prediction? The model error and initial condition error are not easy to separate. A better understanding of these questions will help guide the overall effort of improving intensity forecasts. Ensemble forecasts using a stochastic kinetic-energy backscatter scheme have shown some promise to shed new light on these issues. Although the results are very preliminary, this talk is intended to provide food for thought and invoke a discussion on hurricane intensity forecasting at a fundamental level.
