Abstract:

The U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory has just been completed in May 2012 and serves to display high-accuracy topographic and bathymetric data for the United States and its territories. The project is a collaborative effort of NOAA and the U.S. Geological Survey, with contributions from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This resource is a comprehensive, nationwide listing of known high-accuracy topographic data, including lidar and IfSAR, and bathymetric data, including NOAA hydrographic surveys, multibeam data, and bathymetric lidar. The information provided for each elevation dataset includes many attributes such as vertical accuracy, point spacing, and date of collection. Also provided are a point of contact for the data and a direct link to access the data, if available.

In this webinar participants will

  • Find the location of existing high-resolution elevation data (lidar, IfSA R, bathymetry, etc.)
  • Locate critical information about datasets
  • Print data reports for a particular location

Toxic Algae and Dead Zones: Resurgence of Old Problems in Lake Erie

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: August 02, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-4 Room 9153 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (Graham Family Professor of Environmental Sustainability, University of Michigan)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science
Abstract:

Observations and models of loads from Lake Erie's watershed suggest that traditional agricultural practices and recent changes in climate may be surprisingly conspiring to change the nature of phosphorus loads to the Lake, stimulating the resurgence of these problems that were previously under control. The NOAA-supported Ecofor-Lake Erie project developed and applied a range of ecological models in scenario forecast mode to explore the impacts of agricultural practices and climate on the delivery of nutrients to Lake Erie, the effects of those loads and climate on the development and progression of hypoxia, and the potential impacts of hypoxia on economically and ecologically important fish species. These results are being integrated in efforts of the International Joint Commission, the bi-national Lake Erie Management Plan, and the Ohio Lake Erie Phosphorus Task Force to set new loading targets and invest in more-effective agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs) for phosphorus.

About the Speaker:

Don Scavia is Special Counsel to the U-M President for Sustainability, Professor of Natural Resources and Environment, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Director of the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute. He is on the Advisory Board for the North American Nitrogen Center, the Science Advisory Board for the Annis Water Research Institute and the Central Michigan University Great Lakes Program, the Science Advisory Council of the Environmental Law and Policy Center, and science advisor to the Healing our Waters Great Lakes Coalition.

The use of autonomous underwater vehicles in studies of mesophotic and deep water coral reefs

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Thursday August 9 at 12:00pm-1:00pm 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. Roy A. Armstrong, NCAS, University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: The NOAA Central Library
Abstract: Recent studies on mesophotic coral ecosystems (30-150 m) throughout the US Caribbean describe, for the first time, abundant and structurally complex coral reefs on low-gradient platforms. Information on deep coral ecosystems (>150 m depth) in this region is even more scarce and largely limited to taxonomic listings from incidental collections by coral entanglement devices. The Seabed autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), which was designed for high-resolution underwater optical and acoustic imaging, has provided unprecedented information on the distribution, community structure, and status of mesophotic reefs throughout the U.S. Caribbean. Preliminary surveys of deep coral ecosystems off western Puerto Rico show diverse azooxanthellate coral and invertebrate fauna at depths of over 200 m. For both mesophotic and deep coral ecosystems, the AUV benthic assessments can provide the required qualitative and quantitative data for selecting unique areas of high biodiversity and structural complexity for habitat protection and ecosystem based management.
About the Speaker(s):

Dr. Roy Armstrong has a bachelor's degree in Biology from Boston University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Marine Sciences from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (UPRM). After finishing his Ph.D. in 1990 he spent 1990 to 1994 at NASA's Ames Research Center as a National Research Council post-doctoral fellow and a Research Associate working with hyperspectral remote sensing. Upon his return to Puerto Rico he established the Bi-optical Oceanography laboratory at UPRM. His research is highly interdisciplinary, being mainly concerned with water optics, airborne and satellite remote sensing, coral reef ecology and bio-optics, and the effects of Sahara dust aerosols in the eastern Caribbean. In 2002, in collaboration with engineers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, he pioneered the use of autonomous underwater vehicles to study mesophotic coral reefs. For the last 10 years he has been the director of the NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS) at UPRM.

Heat Transport and Dynamics of Past Climates

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Wednesday, August 15, 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): Knauss Sea Grant Fellow; U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, Republican Staff
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA 2012 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

Studying past oceanic conditions can give us insight into global climate dynamics. Records of direct temperature measurement often only span the last 150 years; in many cases they are much shorter. Proxies are measurements that allow us to infer climatic conditions, and thus can be used to supplement and extend climate records. 20,000 years ago massive ice sheets covered large portions of North America and Western Europe. The transition from that glacial climate to our modern conditions was not a continuous warming. There were several abrupt coolings that interrupted the warming trend. Our proxy reconstructions suggest that oceanic and atmospheric circulations were different during abrupt coolings than they were during either glacial conditions or during the modern. During the abrupt coolings the oceans likely transferred less heat to the northern latitudes, while the atmosphere transferred more. This switch displaced the major tropical rain belts and caused widespread drought along the equator, demonstrating that tropical rainfall amount and patterns can be extremely sensitive to temperature changes.

About the Speaker:

Fern Gibbons recently received her PhD in Marine Geology and Geophysics from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program. There she studied the dynamics of past climates, particularly in the IndoPacific region. She is now a Sea Grant Knauss Fellow working on the Senate Commerce Committee, Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and the Coast Guard.

The Effects of Life History Strategy and Uncertainty on a Probability-Based Approach to Managing the Risk of Overfishing

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Wednesday, August 15, 2012, 12:30 - 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): Knauss Fellow, National Sea Grant Office
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA 2012 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

Recent U.S. legislation applies a precautionary approach to setting catch regulations in federal fisheries management. A transparent approach to compliance proposes that managers choose an allowable risk of overfishing, P*, which specifies the probability that scientists' catch recommendation exceeds the true value of the overfishing limit (OFL). This approach aims to manage the risk of overfishing explicitly, but a chosen "allowable risk" does not alone provide sufficient information on the real risks associated with the resulting control rule. Rather, the ramifications of selected allowable risk levels depend on the amount of uncertainty in the stock assessment and on the life history of the species in question. To evaluate the risks associated with P*-based rules, my study simulated fishing three example species under three levels of uncertainty.

Impacts of Student Research: What I Gained from my Work at NOAA

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Wednesday, August 16, 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): Heather Eberhart, 2010 Recipient of the NOAA Award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC Central Library
Abstract:

Research is often touted as a quintessential part of the college experience. My research began well before college, culminating in the Design and Development of a Portable Light Trap for Sampling Brachyuran Crab Larvae, which I entered in the 2010 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Selected as the winner of "The Pulse of the Planet" award given by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), I earned a fully-paid internship at one of NOAA's facilities during the summer of 2012. Based on my career and professional goals, I elected to take an assignment with the Center for Oceanographic Products and Services' Ocean System Test and Evaluation Program (OSTEP), which is comprised of a small group of physical scientists and marine technicians focused on research, development, and testing of new and improved oceanographic and meteorological measurement systems. While in OSTEP, my research was extremely varied. Time was spent testing and evaluating ultrasonic wind sensors, plotting and analyzing current data to assist with field test planning for a new Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), assisting with preparation for lab testing with new microwave radar water level sensors, and processing environmental data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility at Duck, NC to assist with field test planning for visibility and microwave radar level sensors. During this seminar, my various research projects will be discussed in further detail and ultimately I will consider how each impacted my career plans and interests.

Black Carbon Aerosols Over an Urban Region: Characteristics, Mixing and Radiative Forcing

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: August 21, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center, 325 Broadway, Boulder, CO
Speaker(s): S. Ramachandran (Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
Abstract:

Black carbon (BC), among the carbonaceous aerosols, is gaining considerable significance because of its ability to influence air quality and climate on local, regional and global scales. Black carbon aerosols are produced as primary particles from incomplete combustion processes such as fossil fuel and biomass burning, and hence most of the BC in the atmosphere originates from man-made activities. The radiative and climate impacts of BC are increasingly recognized as BC can absorb sunlight, heat the air and contribute to global warming, unlike the other aerosol types (e.g., sulfate) which produce cooling. Both absorbing (BC) and scattering (sulfate) aerosols cool the surface by reducing the incoming solar radiation and cause solar dimming. In the atmosphere aerosols exist in different mixing states. Mixing of aerosols can change the size distribution of aerosols, their life cycle and radiative effects. The diversity of aerosols present over a location due to local sources and long range transport can give rise to a complex aerosol mixture. Assumptions on the state of aerosol mixing and its effect on optical properties give rise to uncertainties in modeling of direct as well as indirect climate forcing of aerosols.

This seminar will focus on the monthly/seasonal mean variations in physical and optical characteristics of aerosols over an urban region, and the resultant radiative effects with an emphasis on the black carbon owing to its crucial role in regional and global climate impacts. Results obtained on the probable mixing states of aerosols and their radiative effects over the study location, the climate impact in terms of the heating rates (K/day) for different scenarios of BC mass concentrations and zero BC conditions will be presented and discussed.

Date and Time: August 29, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center, 325 Broadway, Boulder, CO
Speaker(s): Eric Jensen (NASA Ames)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
Abstract:

The NASA Airborne Tropical TRopopause EXperiment (ATTREX) is a series of airborne campaigns focused on understanding physical processes in the Tropical Tropopause Layer (TTL) and their role in atmospheric chemistry and climate. A particular ATTREX emphasis is understanding the dehydration of air as it passes through the cold tropical tropopause region. ATTREX is using the high-altitude, long-duration NASA Global Hawk Unmanned Aircraft System to make in situ and remote-sensing measurements spanning the Pacific.

The first ATTREX flights were conducted out of Dryden Flight Research Center during the fall of 2011. Eleven of the twelve ATTREX instruments were integrated on the Global Hawk, including instruments measuring water vapor, clouds, meteorological conditions, a wide range of tracers, and chemical compounds. Three long flights were conducted to the tropics on 29-30 October, 5-6 November, and 9-10 November. Preliminary results will be presented. In particular, we will focus on measurements of TTL cirrus and supersaturation. The fall ATTREX measurements provide clear evidence for two distinct classes of thin cirrus in the TTL: (1) layers with low ice concentrations and low extinctions that have little apparent effect on ice supersaturation, and (2) thin layers (embedded in the deeper, low-ice concentration clouds) with much higher ice concentrations that effectively deplete any vapor in excess saturation. We hypothesize that the low ice concentration clouds are produced by a background population of heterogeneous ice nuclei with concentrations less than 100/L, and the thin, high ice concentration layers are produced when wave motions drive the supersaturation above the threshold for homogeneous freezing of an abundant population of aqueous aerosols. The ATTREX measurements, along with past high-altitude aircraft measurements, indicate that low-ice concentration TTL cirrus occur frequently in various tropical regions. These findings have implications for our understanding of the regulation of stratospheric humidity by TTL cirrus. The predominance of the low-ice concentration cirrus near the tropical tropopause may permit considerably more water to pass through the cold trap into the stratosphere than is typically assumed in models.

Climate and Earth System Science: Use-inspired Research and Advancing the Frontiers

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: August 29, 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): (Director, NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC Central Library
Abstract:

Major advances have occurred in recent times in the global modeling of the Earth system, arising due to improved understanding of the fundamental governing processes and increased availability of high-performance supercomputing. These have enabled models to be developed with (a) more realism yielding, in turn, significant progress in climate and Earth system science, and (b) enhanced spatial resolution for deriving regional-scale climate information. Examples of this will be presented using the NOAA/ GFDL global model simulation results submitted to the World Climate Research Program's Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) and the IPCC Fifth Assessment (AR5), with emphasis on atmospheric chemistry-climate interactions, biogeochemistry-climate interactions, and study of extremes and decadal predictability. NOAA/ GFDL's future plans are focused on advancing the state-of-the-art modeling of the climate and Earth system with greater spatial resolution and accuracy, underpinned by the increased scientific understanding of the controlling mechanisms, better characterization of uncertainties, and a balanced assessment of the strengths/ limitations in projections and predictions.
