ecoOcean - Games in Dissemination, Education and Science

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 09, 2012, 11:00-12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NMFS NEFSC, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory Conference Room, Office Building 74 (74 Magruder Road, Sandy Hook, New Jersey; Directions)
Speaker(s): Dr. Jörn Schmidt (Sustainable Fishery Group, Dept Economics, Univ. Kiel, Germany)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory
Abstract:

There is growing realization of the potential for games and experiments as powerful tools for education, outreach and research in many fields of science. Particularly in fisheries management we face a growing demand for stakeholder involvement, which requires new ways in reaching informed decision-making. Games and experiments can be used for (i) teaching economic and ecological principles to pupils, students and the general public, (ii) outreach and communication with stakeholders in participatory assessment or management environments, and (iii) collecting scientific data in controlled research experiments. We will describe past and current approaches and draw a vision on future use of games in education, communication and science, using the conceptual approach we have taken with ecoOcean.

About The Speaker:

Dr. Jörn Schmidt is a specialist in multidisciplinary work, currently research fellow at the Group "Sustainable Fisheries", Department of Economics, University Kiel. He is experienced in zooplankton ecology, fish larvae ecology and fisheries assessment and contributed to EU (FACTS, STORE) as well as national projects (GLOBEC Germany). Jörn is co-chair of the ICES "Study Group on Integration of Economics, Stock Assessment and Fisheries Management" (SGIMM) and German member of the Science Committee (SCICOM) as well as member of the Publication Committee (PUBCOM). He was main contributor to a EU Study on European Fisheries and Climate Change. Currently he explores the possibilities of games for education and stakeholder participation in a EU project (SOCIOEC). He co-developed the game 'ecoOcean' for an exhibition in the German Museum in Munich. This tool was developed within a project financed by the Cluster of Excellence "Future Ocean" at Kiel University. It received the ICES "Out of the box" Award (Special Merit Award), ASC Nantes for the "ecoOcean" game. The underlying idea was to develop an appealing device to illustrate the basic problem of fisheries (common pool) to the general public.

Japanese Tsunami Debris and Invasive Species - Lessons Learned in Oregon

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 10, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Dr. Samuel Chan (Oregon Sea Grant, Oregon State University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC and Sea Grant
Abstract:

The devastating 9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011 claimed nearly 16,000 lives, injured 6,000, destroyed or damaged infrastructure and caused between $195-$310 billion in damages. It also released a pulse of debris estimated to be over 5 million tons, of which approximately 30% (~1.5million tons) is likely to still be afloat. As of June 2012, the floating debris, predicted to begin arriving with the Fall 2012 storms, has begun to come ashore on the west coast of North America, with a large ~165 ton floating dock appearing on Agate beach in Newport on June 5. The dock and its fouling community garnered extensive media coverage, and turned international attention to Oregon as a site of tsunami debris research and management. The threat of invasive species attached to tsunami marine debris is a critical and unforeseen risk that emerged with the beaching of the 66' long dock that drifted from Japan. Dr. Chan will discuss the response and management of the risk of invasive species introduction in Oregon, and lessons learned from the beaching of the dock on Agate Beach.

Future Evolution of the Carbon Cycle: Some Applications of Data assimilation to the Climate Problem

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 10, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Central Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA National Weather Center Room 1350 (120 David L. Boren Blvd, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK; Directions to the National Weather Center)
Speaker(s): Peter Rayner (School of Earth Sciences, University of Melbourne)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA National Weather Center Colloquium
Abstract:

In this talk I will describe two applications of data assimilation to carbon-cycle climate interactions. In the first, contemporary observations of atmospheric CO2 are used to constrain a mechanistic model of the terrestrial biosphere. The model is subsequently forced with output from a climate simulation for the 21st century. By generating various derivative model (notably the tangent linear) we are able to calculate the uncertainty of the integrated carbon uptake over the 21st century and the major contributions to that uncertainty. We see that the uncertainty of the unconstrained prediction is immense, larger than the spreads shown in previous intercomparisons. The largest contribution is not, as previously suggested, the sensitivity of respiration to temperature but rather the interaction with soil moisture. Contemporary observations are already able to greatly reduce this uncertainty. Although the results are simplistic they do suggest an urgent research focus on changes in soil moisture and their effect on soil respiration. In the second approach a much simpler model (MagicC) is used in a Monte Carlo estimation framework using 20th century observations of temperature, carbon fluxes and some ocean profile information. As expected, when the carbon cycle is left unconstrained the carbon/climate interaction is a major component in the uncertainty of climate projection. Once it is included the range of forecast temperatures narrows with both high and low values becoming less likely even though the median temperature change is not greatly affected.

About The Speaker:

Peter Rayner studied theoretical physics and mathematics at the University of Melbourne, Australia. he completed his PhD in 1991 in the field of paleoclimate. After a brief foray into atmospheric dynamics he has spent the last two decades studying the carbon cycle at various scales and its interaction with the climate. He has concentrated on the application of statistical inference (going under various names such as inverse modeling or data assimilation) to problems in biogeochemistry. He has worked at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and Princeton University in the U.S., the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organization and Monash University in Australia and the Laboratory for the Science of Climate and the Environment in France. He currently holds an Australian Professorial Fellowship at the University of Melbourne.

Aerodynamic Models for Hurricanes

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 18, 2012, 14:00-15:00 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL David Skaggs Research Center PSD South Conference Room (1D403), Boulder, CO
Speaker(s): Arkadii Leonov (University of Akron, Ohio)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Physical Sciences Division Seminars
Abstract:

In spite of many impressive results obtained from observations and theoretical/numerical studies, there are several unresolved fundamental problems in understanding of hurricane functioning, propagation, and genesis/maturing. This report based on the author publications in -Y'arxive is aimed at resolving these problems using simple idealistic models, ignoring turbulent approaches.

Firstly, an aerodynamic quasi-steady model for the upper adiabatic layer of hurricane was developed. It allowed analytically describe the radial distributions of pressure and velocity fields. Then the vertical evolution of these distributions, along with the hurricane structure in adiabatic layer was described by a coupled set of equations for the vertical mass flux and vertical momentum balance, averaged over the eye wall cross section. After solving these equations, the 2D axisymmetric profiles of dynamic and thermodynamic variables can be analytically calculated, if their initial values at the bottom of adiabatic layer are known. The model described the observed change in the direction of hurricane rotation from cyclonic at the bottom to anti-cyclonic at the hurricane top, as well as the change in the direction of radial velocity.

Secondly, a model was developed for hurricane boundary layer (HBL). It described the basic physics in HBL, including evaporation, condensation and interaction of wind with oceanic waves. An airflow model was developed, the HBL structure evaluated, and the basic balance relations for thermodynamic and dynamic variables in HBL were established. They included: the mass balance, the balances of sensible and latent heat, as well as the entropy balance and dissipation for eye wall region. These balances determined the values for unknown parameters at the interface between two layers, as well as the hurricane translation speed. It was shown that the stable functioning of quasi-steady hurricane depends only on temperature of horizontal heat band in which direction the hurricane travels, and sailing wind. Evaluations made for standard hurricane are consistent with data. Two observed and poorly explained effects were described by this model too. One is a high temperature increase at the top of HBL was explained and calculated by the sudden vapor condensation. Another one, increase in angular momentum in HBL, was explained by transfer of energy to the rotating wind from the oceanic waves propagating outside the eye wall region to the hurricane peripheries. Additionally, the radial distributions of wind velocity and surface pressure observed in the hurricane Frederic (1979) were calculated and compared with observations.

Finally, an analytical, semi-phenomenological model of hurricane genesis and maturing was developed. It was based on concept of emerging plumes in near tropical regions, which capture rotation from horizontally sheared wind. The model shows that the only cyclonically rotated plumes survive and mature. They grow to typical hurricane dimensions for about one month. The evaluations based on the model seem to be in accord with observations. See http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/seminars/Abstracts/2012/leonov2012.html

Flying with Albatross: What Black-Footed Albatross are Teaching Us About The Ocean

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 19, 2012, 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA NESDIS NODC MDSD)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC and Sea Grant
Abstract:

The advent of satellite tagging in the late 1990s has provided novel insights into the movements and habitat use patterns of North Pacific Albatrosses, which has greatly informed resource managers and stimulated ocean stewardship. This research has revealed that these far-ranging seabirds range across the entire North Pacific Ocean, crossing international boundaries and venturing into marine protected areas in U.S. territorial waters. In particular, investigating albatross movements at sea has advanced our understanding of 'hotspots' within NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries and Marine National Monuments. Studying their diets has raised the alarm about the pervasive occurrence of plastics in the marine food web. NOAA and Oikonos are incorporating these research findings into outreach and educational products through the eyes of albatross. New classroom lessons will provide a rich resource for educators to teach STEM topics, promote ocean stewardship, and inspire tomorrow's scientists, artists, engineers, and resource managers.

About The Speaker:

Evolution of a Latitudinal Body Size Pattern in a Marine Isopod

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 19, 2012, 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Marine Debris Program)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC and Sea Grant
Abstract:

Organismal body size strongly affects individual fitness, with larger body sizes generally being positively correlated to mating success and fecundity. It has been widely observed that organisms from higher latitudes tend to be larger than their lower latitude counterparts (termed Bergmann's Rule). For most body size patterns, however, it remains unclear whether this reflects a genetic or phenotypically-plastic response, and what co-grading environmental variable(s) maintain the pattern. In order to answer some of these questions, I examined the marine isopod Idotea balthica, whose populations along the East Coast of the United States conform to Bergmann's rule. Using lab- and field-based experiments, I explored the evolutionary mechanism for the pattern, as well as co-grading environmental variables, namely temperature and predation, that may have led to the observed pattern. In this presentation, I outline the results of these experiments, showing that the body size pattern is adaptive and both predation risk and temperature may be important evolutionary forces in its development.

Climate Change and Potential Ecosystem Change in Alaska, The Yukon, and The Northwest Territories

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 24, 2012, 10:00-11:00 Alaska Local Time (14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone) [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: ACCAP office, second floor of the Denali Building, 3352 College Rd., Fairbanks, Alaska
Speaker(s): Nancy Fresco, Michael Lindgren, Falk Heuttmann (University of Alaska Fairbanks); Karen Murphy (National Park Service)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ACCAP
Abstract:

The joint final report from the Alaska Cliomes Project and the Canada Cliomes Project is now available for public download. The report offers the public, including land managers, government agencies, communities, businesses, academics and nonprofits, a new perspective on how climate change affects northern ecosystems. Historical weather data was used to divide the landscape into areas of similar climate. Each of these areas - or cliomes - is described based on the characteristic pattern of vegetation and wildlife species that thrive under those particular climate conditions. The project then used climate models to project how ongoing climate change may cause the landscape to shift in coming decades.Project results suggest some major changes in these cliomes and the ecosystems associated with them.

Impact of Ensemble Size and Horizontal Resolution on the Performance of the NCEP GEFS

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 24, 2012, 12:00-1:00 Eastern Local Time (14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone) [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA Camp Springs Campus World Weather Building, Room 707 (5200 Auth Road, Camp Springs, MD 20746)
Speaker(s): (NCEP/EMC)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) Seminar
Abstract:

Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) centers around the world face the same questions when they develop (or upgrade) an ensemble forecast system. How many ensemble members do we need to better represent forecast uncertainties with limited computational resources? What is the relationship between resolution and ensemble size? This investigation starts from the Lorenz 96 model by using the ensemble transform with rescaling (ETR) initialized perturbations for up to 320 ensemble members. The results are contrasted with tests based on the NCEP Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) from different ensemble sizes and resolution. The impact of various ensemble sizes is studied by applying a set of verification measurements for the period of December 1st, 2009 to January 31st, 2010. The several variables (such as 500hPa geopotential height) are verified over the Northern Hemisphere (NH) and Southern Hemisphere (SH) extra-tropics. Results indicate that increasing ensemble size is beneficial to improve skill of ensemble mean for small ensemble members (especially less than 40-member). However, the skill of probabilistic forecast will be significantly improved with further increasing ensemble members. Meanwhile, the relative benefits of T126L28 resolution with 70 members and T190L28 resolution with 20 members (the same model) which have equivalent computing cost are also compared. The comparison of the two configurations indicates that increasing model resolution is more (less) beneficial than increasing ensemble size for short (long) lead times.

Modeling Effects of Climate Change on Fisheries: Future Survival of Larval Cod

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 25, 2012, 14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 Room 12836 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (Institute of Marine Research, Bergen, Norway and Visiting Scientist, NOAA Climate Program and NOAA Fisheries Service, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NMFS Climate Program Office
Abstract:

Climate variability and change can have major impacts on the distribution and abundance of marine fish. How well can we predict the effects of future climate changes on important commercial fish stocks like Atlantic cod? Understanding the physical-biological mechanisms that shape variability in fisheries recruitment is critical to answering this question. This seminar describes studies to determine how changes in ocean temperature and primary productivity will drive changes in growth and survival of larval cod (Gadus morhua) in the North Atlantic throughout the 21st century. Using simulations from an Earth System Model (NOAA GFDL ESM2.1) coupled with a highly mechanistic individual-based model (IBM) for larval fish, the ESM model outputs were averaged and analyzed for 5 regions that represent the geographic boundaries of the current cod range.

The results predict that increases in stratification and warmer temperatures lead to a strong reduction in large phytoplankton (9.3-64.4%) between 1950 and 2099. Greater stratification drives decreases in zooplankton abundance, which is the main prey resource for most fish species (e.g. Atlantic cod) during the larval stage. The combination of elevated ocean temperatures with less zooplankton leads to declines in larval cod survival at all major spawning grounds in the North Atlantic by the year 2100. In addition the time period with potentially high larval growth and survival becomes shorter, starts later and ends earlier. High recruitment will also be less likely because shorter time windows of optimal conditions will require a stronger synchrony between peak larval fish abundance and their prey. These findings suggest that larval survival, and hence recruitment of Atlantic cod will be more susceptible to inter-annual variability in environmental conditions. Together, these results suggest climate change could have significant negative impacts on the survival of larval cod in the North Atlantic. A key remaining question is whether unresolved local processes could significantly alter trends imposed by these broad-scale dynamics.

RipCur: Smartphone App for Rip Current Reporting

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: July 26, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (Coastal Processes Specialist at New Jersey Sea Grant and Research Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC
Abstract:

The RipCur smartphone app was developed by a group of computer science senior design students at Stevens Institute of Technology. The project was guided by researchers at Stevens, the NJ Sea Grant coastal processes specialist, National Weather Service personnel, and former lifeguards enrolled at Stevens. The app provides a way for lifeguards to communicate with one another in real-time and to relay that information to interested parties including the NWS, and the US Coast Guard. Access to the app is restricted via a username and password and is not intended for distribution to the public. Authorized lifeguards simply identify a rip and input a few details and the app does the rest. The cell phone's GPS is used to locate the rip, and the app automatically queries nearby buoys and tide gauges to obtain auxiliary information. Once input, the rip becomes a part of the active dataset and is viewable either in a list format or on a map by other lifeguards and researchers. The data also populates a database which is fully searchable. This allows lifeguard administrators and researchers the ability to identify the rips occurring at specific times or during specific conditions. The pilot version is currently being used by about a dozen beach patrols in New Jersey; however interest in the app has come from as far away as Israel and Australia.
