An Economic Health Index to Measure Fishery Profitability

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 02, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA SSMC-3 4th Floor, Room 4817 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Fisheries economist, Northeast Fisheries Science Center)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC and Fisheries Office of Science & Technology
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Fisheries are common pool resources, and the problems associated with managing fisheries are well documented. As part of its stewardship responsibilities, NOAA is tasked with measuring economic performance of the fishing fleets that harvest these resources. One performance category is financial well-being, and within this category productivity has been identified as a key metric. To address both financial well-being and productivity, an "economic health index" [EHI] was developed that combines-in a single number-Lowe indices of output prices and quantities, input prices and quantities, and a fixed cost component. This allows a productivity component to be derived from the overall index, and examined separately. However, this productivity component needs to be further refined to account for the effects of fish biomass, which is outside the control of individual vessels.

An EHI was constructed for the Northeast Multispecies Fishery using data from 2007-2011. Preliminary results show that financial performance of this fishery improved in 2010 and 2011, relative to 2008 and 2009. Output prices generally declined, while input prices increased. Productivity gains were generally positive and fostered profitability gains. Further refinement of the EHI should provide more insight into profitability changes, and how management strategies impact fleet profitability.

Aviation in a 2 degree world?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 03, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80305)
Speaker(s): David S. Lee (Centre for Air Transport and Environment (CATE), Manchester Metropolitan University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

One of the current policy ambitions of the UNFCCC process is to aim for no more than a 2 degree increase in global mean surface temperatures over preindustrial levels by 2100. In 2011, at the Durban COP meeting, UNEP presented a report entitled "Bridging the Emissions Gap". This report examined the potential magnitude of global CO2 emissions by 2020, and by how much these might exceed a required emissions trajectory to achieve 2 degrees by 2100. In addition, the report examined the role of 'international emissions', i.e. so-called 'bunker fuels' from shipping and aviation that currently lie outside the Kyoto protocol and other international agreements because of difficulties in allocating responsibility for these emissions. This talk focuses on the potential range of aviation emissions (global, meaning international and domestic) according to literature values of future scenarios, and by how much they might be reduced by technological and market-based emission-reduction opportunities. The results are stark and politically controversial.

Climate Change: Glaciers, People and Options

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 03, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Remote access only
Speaker(s): (Distinguished University Professor, School of Earth Sciences, and Senior Research Scientist, Byrd Polar Research Center, Ohio State University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Ohio Sea Grant
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Glaciers are one of Nature's best thermometers, and perhaps its most sensitive and unambiguous indicator of climate change. This webinar will discuss the "inconvenient truth" of global climate change through an introduction to climate change, a brief look at how past climate changes have impacted Peruvian cultures, the latest evidence for the recent acceleration of the rate of glacier loss world-wide, and evidence that some glaciers like the Quelccaya ice cap (the world's largest tropical ice cap) in the Andes of Peru are now smaller than they have been in over 6,000 years. This evidence will then be discussed in terms of our "inconvenient mind". Here we will look at some of our basic belief systems, as identified by behavior analysts, that relate to how humans respond to climate change issues. In addition, I will discuss what I see as our options and the greatest challenges of the 21st Century.

About The Speaker(s): Lonnie G. Thompson is a Distinguished University Professor in the School of Earth Sciences and Senior Research Scientist at Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University. Thompson is one of the world's foremost authorities on paleoclimatology and glaciology. He has led 58 expeditions during the last 35 years, conducting ice-core drilling programs in the Polar Regions as well as on tropical and subtropical ice fields in 16 countries. Thompson and his team were the first to develop lightweight solar-powered drilling equipment for the acquisition of histories from ice fields in the high Andes of Peru and on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The results from these ice-core-derived climate histories, published in more than 200 articles, have contributed greatly toward improved understanding of Earth's climate system, both past and present. This is a prerequisite for efforts to predict future changes. Thompson's research has resulted in major revisions in the field of paleoclimatology, in particular, by demonstrating how tropical regions have undergone significant climate variability, countering an earlier view that higher latitudes dominate climate change. Lonnie is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and has been awarded the National Medal of Science (the highest honor the U.S. awards to American scientists), the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Earth and Environmental Science, and the Friendship Award from the People's Republic of China.

Oysters' Contribution to Water Column Filtration

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 04, 2012, 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus SSMC-3 Library 2nd Floor (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Knauss 2012 placement: : Congressional Analysis and Relations Division, NOAA Oceanic and Atmospheric Research)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellows 2012
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Benthic suspension feeders such as oysters can have a significant impact on marine ecosystems through removal of particulate matter from the water column. Oysters are considered an important control on phytoplankton growth in estuaries because they feed primarily on phytoplankton and tend to form dense reefs. The substantial decline in the Chesapeake Bay's oyster populations during the past century has been implicated in the eutrophication and overgrowth of phytoplankton in that ecosystem. Ostreaequestris (Say 1834), known commonly as the crested oyster, is a non-reef building and noncommercial species which co-occurs in the Carolinas with the commercially-harvested and well-studied Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea virginica. Once considered rare and cryptic, recent surveys have indicated that the crested oyster is much more common than previously known. To better understand the role of O.equestris in its ecosystem and its potential interactions with C. virginica, I completed a novel investigation on the scaling relationship between biomass and filtration rates for O.equestris, as well as how environmental factors such as flow speed and concentration of phytoplankton affect filtration. I found that em>O.equestris' filtration rates per unit biomass were about thirty times lower than C. virginica, and that they filter most efficiently at moderate flow speeds (10 cm/s). The results indicate that O. equestris does not have nearly the same filtering capacity as C. virginica, but responds similarly to environmental factors.

Anaerobic Oxidation of Methane in Freshwater Wetland Ecosystems

OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellows 2012
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Freshwater wetlands are characterized by high rates of methanogenesis and are the single largest source of atmospheric methane. Anaerobic oxidation of methane (AOM), a previously underappreciated process in these systems, may be an important component in freshwater methane budgets. Here we report some of the first direct measurements of AOM in wetland sediments. We examined seasonal methane cycling within three freshwater wetlands (two peat wetlands and one tidal, freshwater creekbank) along the eastern coast of the US. Rates of AOM were high (up to 286 nmol cm-3 d-1) and varied on a seasonal basis. Despite low sulfate concentrations, rates of sulfate reduction were sufficient to support all the observed AOM activity, though rates of these two processes were not correlated. The zone of AOM activity was marked by enriched stable carbon isotopic signatures (δ13C) of methane and depleted signatures of DIC. However, the δ13C of archaeal and bacterial lipids were not indicative of methanotrophy. Studies that evaluate the role of AOM in wetlands using lipid and isotope-based approaches may therefore underestimate its importance. This study highlights the importance of AOM in freshwater sediments, where this process may control emissions of methane to the atmosphere. Both SR and AOM may effectively limit the methane emissions from these wetlands through competitive interactions with methanogens and the consumption of large fractions of the methane produced from acetate and hydrogen.

The NCEP's Nonhydrostatic Multiscale Atmospheric Model

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: October 09, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction Room 2155 (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD 20740)
Speaker(s): (NCEP/NWS/EMC)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

As a part of the NOAA Environmental Modeling System (NEMS), a unified Nonhydrostatic Multiscale Model (NMMB) is being developed at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The model has been designed for a broad range of spatial and temporal scales extending from LES and meso to global, and from short range weather forecasting to climate studies. The latitude-longitude grid is used for the global domain, and rotated latitude-longitude coordinate is employed for regional applications. A general, pressure-based terrain following vertical coordinate is applied. The model is fully compressible. The nonhydrostatic component of the model is designed in such a way as to avoid overspecification. As a consequence, the number of prognostic equations is reduced by one. "Isotropic" quadratic conservative finite-volume horizontal differencing employed in the model conserves a variety of basic and derived dynamical and quadratic quantities and preserves some important properties of differential operators. Among these, the conservation of energy and enstrophy improves the accuracy of nonlinear dynamics of the model on all scales. A fast Eulerian conservative and positive definite scheme has been developed for model tracers. Conservative polar boundary conditions are specified in the global limit, and the polar filter selectively slows down the wave components of the basic dynamical variables.

In very high-resolution tests the model dynamics successfully reproduced classical two-dimensional nonhydrostatic solutions. In regional short range runs, the model dynamics demonstrated the ability to develop the observed -3 and -5/3 spectral slopes with realistic transition between the two spectral ranges. These properties of the spectra were not induced by computational noise and maintained by numerical filters. In a decaying turbulence case on convective cloud scales, the model dynamics developed the -5/3 spectrum consistent with the 3D turbulence theory. On the meso scales, the NMMB replaced the WRF NMM in operations at NCEP as the North American Model (NAM) and in a number of ensemble and nested high resolution runs. A global forecasting system based on the NMMB has been run in order to test and tune the model and to examine its potential for medium range weather forecasting. The skill of the NMMB medium range forecasts has been comparable to that of other major medium range forecasting systems.

Remaining issues will be discussed and recent developmental work will be reviewed. Results of recent tests will be presented. In particular, the computational efficiency of the model on regional and global scales will be addressed, as well as scalability on massively parallel computers.

Doppler Lidar Studies of the Boundary Layer and Applications to Wind Energy

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 10, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80305)
Speaker(s): Yelena Pichugina (CU CIRES and NOAA ESRL CSD)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

The structure and dynamics of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL), especially at nighttime, are poorly understood because of a variety of sampling issues, but are very important for many practical applications including Air Quality, Aviation, Climate, Wind Energy, and for improving numerical weather prediction (NWP) model forecasts. Research lidars, designed and developed at the Earth System Research Laboratory (ERSL) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), have been highly effective in the study of dynamic processes in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) providing precise, quantitative data on wind flow properties both inland and offshore. Most of these studies included measurements of wind and turbulence profiles at high spatial and temporal resolution from surface up to several hundred meters aloft. The fine resolution measurements are critical for the rapidly expanding wind-energy industry that requires accurate assessment of wind resources and turbulence structure of the boundary layer at the heights of turbine rotors. The presentation highlights results obtained from the NOAA High Resolution Doppler lidar (HRDL) studies of atmospheric processes that may impact the operational reliability and lifetime of wind turbines and their components, as well as resource assessment, forecasting, and the uncertainty in generated wind power.

Examples of the HRDL measurements during inland field programs in the Great Plains and offshore field programs in the Gulf of Maine will be shown, illustrating wind characteristics e important for the wind energy industry. These examples include low-level jet properties as well as time series and distributions of quantities such as wind speed, direction, and shear through the blade layer. HRDL was also used to obtain simultaneous measurements of vertical and horizontal wind flow features both upwind and downwind of a multi-megawatt wind turbine. Accounting for wakes is an important issue in the optimization of siting turbines in the wind farm, operational strategies to reduce wake effects, and improved design of wind turbines. Overall, the success in the wind energy industry depends on accurate estimation of wind resources and reduced uncertainty in power production. High-resolution lidar data, providing better understanding and modeling of BL processes, also benefit other applications.

The Role of Bibliometrics in Evaluating Scientific Research

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 10, 2012, 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus SSMC-3 Library 2nd Floor (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Central Library)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC Central Library
Abstract:

Bibliometric analysis is increasingly being used to evaluate the scientific research of authors, institutions, and countries. This increased use has unfortunately led to the misapplication of bibliometric indicators such as the Impact Factor and the H-Index, due primarily to a lack of understanding as to what these metrics actually measure. This session will provide a high-level overview of the types of questions that bibliometrics can and cannot answer, show how bibliometrics provides answers to these questions, and provide a recommendation of how bibliometric analysis can be combined with informed peer review to provide a more holistic evaluation of scientific research.

Reducing Bycatch of Herbivorous Fishes in Coral Reef Trap Fisheries in the USVI

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 15, 2012, 15:00-16:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA-SSMC-4, Room 10153 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Dr. Ron Hill (NOAA Fisheries Southeast Fisheries Science Center-Galveston)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program
Abstract:

In collaborative research between NMFS Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) and the St. Thomas Fisheries Association (STFA), we showed that escape vents in fish traps can reduce the capture and mortality of reef herbivores. Species, such as surgeonfishes, have historically been captured in traps and hauled rapidly to the surface, suffering injury and mortality due to rapidly changing pressures (barotrauma). Even when released from the boat at the surface, survival is not ensured. Differences in body shape between herbivores and target species make escape vents an attractive tool for maintaining herbivore populations, if effectiveness can be demonstrated without reducing catches. For this research, we designed complementary experimental approaches to define appropriate sizes of vents and placement in traps. Long-term performance testing of various vents allowed us to refine recommendations for future application within the commercial fishery. Following, presentation of results to the Caribbean Fishery Management Council, the Council committed funds to begin installing vents throughout the USVI commercial trap fishery.

Speaker(s): David Herring (Director of Communications & Education, Climate Program Office)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Climate Connection
Abstract:

Looking for a way to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of your online communications? Consider using NOAA MediaWatch, an innovative new semantic web technology. If the sound of that intimidates you, don't let it! MediaWatch is fairly quick and easy to learn, and there's no cost to you. Here's how it works: every day MediaWatch crawls and mirrors the textual content of hundreds of public and government websites, blogs, and social media outlets. The tool then rapidly counts the number of articles about topics of interest (i.e., climate, extreme events, drought), analyzes the semantics of the articles, and then digests the information in ways that make it easy for users to visualize and interpret. David Herring will give a brief demonstration of how MediaWatch works, and how you can access and use it freely. He will also discuss planned next steps in the tool's evolution.

Ozone Data Assimilation

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 16, 2012, 14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Conference Center of the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD 20740)
Speaker(s): Krzysztof Wargan (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center/Global Modeling and Assimilation Office)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA JCSDA Seminar
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Assimilation of ozone data is an important and challenging component of atmospheric data analysis for operational and research purposes. In its operational analyses, the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office uses total column ozone data from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on the EOS Aura satellite and partial ozone columns from Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SBUV) sounders on NOAA platforms. These measurements are characterized by a relatively coarse vertical resolution of SBUV, particularly below the ozone peak, and coverage limited to the sunlit atmosphere.

In this presentation we will discuss some recent changes introduced to ozone assimilation in the GEOS-5 Data Assimilation System (GEOS-DAS). We will describe a state-dependent approach to the background error covariance modeling and show how this approach leads to significant improvements in the representation of ozone in the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere. The second part of the talk will be devoted to assimilation of the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) data. Unlike the SBUV instruments, MLS can measure chemical composition and temperature in both day and night and possesses a much higher vertical resolution. We will show how MLS data can improve GEOS-DAS analyses and discuss our current work on direct assimilation of MLS radiance data in spectral bands sensitive to ozone and temperature.

Effects of Ammonia Emissions on California Air Quality

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 17, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80305)
Speaker(s): John Nowak, CU CIRES & NOAA ESRL CSD
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

Ammonia (NH3) from agricultural and urban sources effects terrestrial ecosystems and atmospheric composition, and some of these sources have increased substantially in recent decades. Over the last 50 years world usage of NH3-derived fertilizers has increased by an order of magnitude, resulting in a major increase of NH3 to the ecosystem from agriculture. Major NH3 sources from agricultural activity include animal waste and crop fertilization. In urban areas automobiles equipped with three-way catalytic converters have become a source of atmospheric NH3. These anthropogenic sources increase the burden of NH3 to the atmosphere, where NH3 is the dominant gas-phase base. NH3 in the atmosphere contributes to particle formation. For example, emissions of NH3 and NOx (NO + NO2), which can be oxidized in sunlight to form nitric acid (HNO3), can react to form atmospheric ammonium nitrate particles.

NH3 from agricultural activity and urban centers results in ammonium nitrate formation in both the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB) and the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) of California. These regions are designated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as being in non-attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for both PM2.5 and PM10. Since formation of fine aerosol nitrates from NH3 and HNO3 accounts for a significant fraction of the PM2.5 mass, quantifying the sources of NH3 in theses regions is important for developing aerosol control strategies. Fast-time resolution observations of NH3 and traces gases and aerosols made aboard the NOAA WP-3D aircraft during the CalNex 2010 campaign are used to quantify and compare NH3 sources in California, evaluate their representation in emissions inventories, and determine their impact on particle formation.

Climate Change Adaptation: Outcomes from the Great Barrier Reef Climate Change Action Plan

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 18, 2012, 15:00 - 16:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus, SSMC-4 Room 10153 (Large Conference Room) (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Dr. Paul Marshall (Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program
Abstract:

The high vulnerability of coral reefs to climate change puts reef scientists and managers at the frontier of climate change adaptation. There is now broad consensus that coral reef systems face unprecedented challenges and that coral reef management must itself adapt if reef ecosystems and dependent social systems are to have the best chance of coping with climate change. But what does adaptation look like in the world of coral reef management? Under the Great Barrier Reef Climate Change Action Plan we have collaborated with scientists and managers from around the world to develop and test tools and approaches for climate change adaptation. An improved understanding of the risks from climate change has led to targeted management responses and testing of new management strategies. We have also invested heavily in supporting adaptation by reef-dependent communities industries, especially tourism and fishing. Our work has challenged conventional management paradigms through adaptation plans that call for active interventions in climate-sensitive biodiversity hotspots. Community engagement and participation has been a hallmark of the success of the Action Plan, notably through our Eye on the Reef and Reef Guardians programs. Our adaptation journey is shared in the forthcoming publication Climate Change Adaptation: Outcomes from the Great Barrier Reef Climate Change Action Plan. The Great Barrier Reef experience is providing the foundations for a new collaboration between Australia and the Caribbean to improve the outlook for reefs in the face of climate change.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Paul Marshall has been a key player in Australian and international efforts to understand the implications of climate change for the conservation and management of coral reefs. For over a decade he has worked with leading scientists, policymakers, conservation practitioners, local communities and reef-based industries to improve the outlook for coral reefs. His has made significant contributions through partnering in research, developing management tools and systems to support decisions, raising awareness, building capacity and empowering stewardship. He has worked with Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority for the last 12 years, which has included developing and implementing the Great Barrier Reef Climate Change Action Plan. He regularly collaborates with governments, major NGOs and international organizations to support climate change adaptation. He has over 45 peer-reviewed publications on applied reef ecology and conservation practice, including the milestone references The Great Barrier Reef and Climate Change: A Vulnerability Assessment and A Reef Manager's Guide to Coral Bleaching published in partnership with NOAA and IUCN. He is currently leading the Australia-Caribbean collaboration on climate change and coral reefs.

Spatial Planning and Bio-Economic Analysis for Offshore Shrimp Aquaculture in Mexico

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 18, 2012, 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus SSMC-3 Library 2nd Floor (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Michaela Clemence, Knauss Fellow Program Coordination Office, Office of the Under Secretary, NOAA
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Knauss Fellow Program
Abstract:

Global demand for shrimp is currently met with wild caught and farmed species, both of which are frequently environmentally and economically unsustainable. Offshore aquaculture is an emerging alternative that shows promise for reducing or eliminating many concerns embedded in existing capture fishery and land-based aquaculture practices. Aquapods are a new offshore aquaculture cage system that could provide a path to sustainable shrimp production, but little is known regarding optimal placement or economic viability of this new technology. This project uses an innovative spatial bio-economic analysis to provide a strategic framework for implementing offshore shrimp aquaculture with greater certainty of success. To better inform the planning, management and research priorities of Aquapod operations in Mexico, this project couples marine spatial planning with bio-economic modeling and sensitivity analyses to identify suitable sites for Aquapod implementation and evaluate the economic viability of Aquapod operations. Our model indicates that only a small proportion of our study areas are suitable for Aquapod implementation and that none of the potential locations are expected to be profitable. We found that profitability is driven by both spatial variability and operational decisions, and by locating Aquapods close to shore and reducing feed and labor costs, managers can help ensure the economic viability of Aquapod operations.

About The Speaker:

Michaela Clemence currently serves as the 2012 Program Coordination Office Sea Grant Fellow. She received her BS in biology and environmental studies from the University of Richmond and her Master's degree in coastal marine resource management from the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at UCSB. Her graduate work focused on marine spatial planning and bio-economic modeling for offshore shrimp aquaculture in Mexico. Prior to working at NOAA, she worked as a Project Manager for the Sustainable Fisheries Group in Santa Barbara working on projects on market-based fisheries management, marine planning and data poor stock assessment. Michaela has also previously worked with the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Study of Coastal Oceans (PISCO) on the Science of Marine Reserves team, the National Marine Fisheries Service on the role of marine protected areas in resource management in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and as a corporate recruiter and account manager for bio-pharmaceutical companies in Boston.

OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Knauss Fellow Program
Abstract:

Global demand for shrimp is currently met with wild caught and farmed species, both of which are frequently environmentally and economically unsustainable. Offshore aquaculture is an emerging alternative that shows promise for reducing or eliminating many concerns embedded in existing capture fishery and land-based aquaculture practices. Aquapods are a new offshore aquaculture cage system that could provide a path to sustainable shrimp production, but little is known regarding optimal placement or economic viability of this new technology.

Although multiple infectious diseases have been discovered in marine mammals since 1992, recent emerging marine mammal infectious diseases have been found along our coast including some with potential implications for human and marine mammal population health. In the late 2000s Cryptococcus gatti was isolated from stranded cetaceans along the Pacific Northwest. This increase in cases in porpoises coincided with increased disease in the human population, domestic animals and terrestrial wildlife. Current environmental conditions appear to support this pathogen becoming endemic along the Pacific Northwest coast. In early 2010 Coxiella burnetti was discovered at a high prevalence in northern fur seals in the Pribilof Islands and subsequent follow-up testing found increased levels of contamination at rookery sites. Recently in 2011, an outbreak of avian influenza (H3N8) was found to have caused mortality in stranded harbor seals along the Northeast coast. The seal virus contained mutations that have been shown to enable other flu viruses to more easily infect mammals and has raised concern over the threat posed by this virus to both animals and people. Additionally, over the last two years increased detection of marine brucellosis cases in stranded cetaceans across the United States has led to an increased effort to understand the potential impacts of this disease on animal and human health. Lastly, a recent unusual mortality event in Alaska involving ice seals and walrus has increased the need for collaborative research across countries, research disciplines, and the public health sector to address subsistence harvest issues related to emerging disease conditions in marine mammals.

In addition to concerns about the health of marine mammal populations and the health of the ocean environment, public health issues over the risk of disease exposure to marine mammal workers or through food safety and security concerns have been raised in all of the above mentioned disease events. NOAA is working in collaboration with various branches of CDC, state public health, wildlife biologists and veterinarians, and other federal partners to increase our understanding of emerging diseases in marine mammals and the potential role of environmental change. Studies are underway to determine if the pathogens are changing, shifting geographic ranges, and/or hosts, or if the distribution or susceptibility of the animals has altered. However in ocean ecosystems which may be significantly impacted by environmental change and anthropogenic activities, it is essential that integrated wildlife disease surveillance and investigations continue with increased cooperation with the public health sector. Given the biology of marine mammals, their use as subsistence food, the land-sea connection, and the occurrence of shared pathogens, marine mammals may serve as excellent sentinels for early health warning systems on the impacts of climate change.

Forecasting Stratospheric Intrusion Events over the Western US for Exceptional Event Demonstration

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 24, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar room (2A305), David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80305)
Speaker(s): R. Bradley Pierce (NOAA NESDIS)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar
OneNOAA Science Seminar Theme:
Abstract:

During the late winter and early spring tropopause folds frequently allow stratospheric air to descend and introduce ozone-rich air into the troposphere. These stratospheric intrusion (SI) events can occasionally result in elevated surface ozone at higher elevation monitoring sites in the western US, particularly when they occur in conjunction with deep planetary boundary layers and efficient turbulent mixing. SI can lead to exceptional events, which according to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, are considered "unusual or naturally occurring events that can affect air quality but are not reasonably controllable using techniques that tribal, state or local air agencies may implement in order to attain and maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards." This talk presents results from nested global-to-regional scale air quality modeling studies showing the potential for forecasting SI events and discusses how these modeling studies can be used to provide weight of evidence for exceptional event analysis. The modeling studies utilize global ozone analyses from the Real-time Air Quality Modeling System (RAQMS) that are used to initialize high resolution (8-12km) Weather Research and Forecasting - Chemistry (WRF-CHEM) regional predictions of SI events that occurred during May 2010, and May/June 2012. These events resulted in elevated ozone at surface monitors in Colorado and Wyoming.

Catapults, Ferries and Bridges: Moving Ocean Science Results to Applications

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 24, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus, SSMC-4, Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (Oceanographer, NCCOS/CSCOR) and (Marine Ecologist, Office of Ocean and Resource Management, Estuarine Reserves Division)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research
Abstract:

Many aquatic science projects are done with the goal of informing management and policy to protect, conserve, and wisely use coastal resources. However, the transfer of research results into policy and management decisions remains a challenge. Some projects use the "catapult" approach: packaging up all the results at the end of the project and flinging them across institutional barriers to the desired end users. Others try a "ferry" approach, publishing results as the project progresses and scheduling meetings periodically between the scientists and the end users, providing discrete times for exchange of information. Still others attempt a "bridge" that fosters a more dynamic and continuous exchange of results and information, actively seeking real-time feedback from end users. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the methods used by the Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research and the NERRS Science Collaborative to foster the transfer of information and research results to management and policy end users. Examples will be drawn from current and completed research projects in the Mid-Atlantic, the Great Lakes, and other coastal environments.

On the Verge: International Development of Deep Seabed Hard Minerals

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: October 25, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus SSMC-3 Library 2nd Floor (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Caitlyn Antrim (Executive Director, Rule of Law Committee for the Ocean)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA International Section of the NOAA General Counsel Office.
Abstract:

The International Seabed Authority has approved 17 contracts for exploration of mineral deposits on the seabed beyond national jurisdiction, including with commercial firms from the United Kingdom and Belgium and organizations from Russia, China, India, South Korea and Japan. In spite of the interruption in the rising growth of demand for nickel, copper and other seabed metals during the "great recession," prospects are looking up for the deep seabed mining industry - at least for nationals of states parties to the Law of the Sea Convention.

Caitlyn Antrim will give an overview of the technical, economic, market, legal and political factors that have led to the doubling of International Seabed Authority contracts in the past two years and the constraints on the sole remaining U.S. holder of NOAA licenses for commercial exploration of sites in the Pacific Ocean. Her presentation will include a status report on the International Seabed Authority as it begins to prepare rules and regulations for exploitation of seabed nodules, and the prospects for commercial development of deep seabed minerals inside and outside of the Law of the Sea Convention.

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: Octopber 30, 2012, 12:00 – 1:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA, SSMC4, Room 8150, 1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD (Also available remotely; see below)
Speaker(s): , NOAA/NMFS and NOAA West Team Lead and , NOAA Program, Planning and Integration
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and and the NOAA Web Committee
Abstract:

NOAA's Western Regional Collaboration Team (NOAA West) is part of the NOAA Collaboration network established in 2006 comprised of approximately 500 employees and affiliates from each of NOAA's eight regions. The network exists to engage external partners, more efficiently utilize resources, and discover new areas of collaboration. The eleven states within the NOAA West footprint span nearly 1.2 million square miles constituting nearly 33% of the total United States, including 7,863 miles of tidal shoreline. In many regards, the West is still "wild" with over 753 million acres of land held by the federal government in public trust. From the deserts to the coastal temperate rainforests, the West is characterized by numerous distinct and complex terrestrial and marine ecosystems. The socio-economic context of the West is as diverse as the natural environment and is a residential mix of urban and rural communities, with the most and least densely populated states in the Nation (California and Wyoming respectively). The physiographic diversity and geographic scope of the region make it one of the most complex to analyze in terms of understanding priority regional needs for NOAA science and services that meet the evolving demands of a multitude of distinct stakeholders. Regional collaboration activities are focused on "unifying priority issues" – that is, documented stakeholder needs that require a cross-NOAA response and for which there are multiple NOAA Line Office interests and resident science and technical capacity. Our collaborative work falls under the priorities of: Climate and weather services, Western water, and healthy oceans, coasts and fisheries. This presentation will highlight the West, describe unique challenges and characteristics, and provide examples of NOAA West collaborative activities.

The sessions are informal presentations and discussions rather than science lectures. The goal of the series is to enhance the ability of people who work for or with NOAA to speak about climate with confidence, and to help attendees find and use NOAA's climate-related data and information.
