Hidden Error Variance Theory and its use in Hybrid Data Assimilation

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 02, 2012, 14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA Center for Weather and Place Climate Prediction (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD)
Speaker(s): Craig Bishop (Naval Research Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA JCSDA
Abstract:

A conundrum of predictability research is that while the prediction of flow dependent error distributions is one of its main foci, chaos fundamentally hides flow dependent forecast error distributions from empirical observation. Empirical estimation of such error distributions requires that one obtain a large sample of error realizations given the same flow and the same observational network. However, chaotic elements of the flow and the observing network make it practically impossible to observe and collect the conditioned sample of errors required to empirically define such distributions and their variance. These variances are ?hidden?. Here, an exposition of the problem is developed from an ensemble Kalman filter data assimilation system applied to a 10 variable non-linear chaotic model and 25,000 replicate models. The output from this system motivates a new analytical model for the distribution of true error variances given an imperfect ensemble variance. This model is defined by 6 parameters that also determine the optimal weights for the static and flow dependent parts of Hybrid error variance models. Six new equations enable these hidden parameters to be accurately estimated from a long time series of (innovation, ensemble variance) data pairs. This new-found ability to estimate hidden parameters provides new tools for assessing the quality of ensemble forecasts, tuning Hybrid error variance models and for post-processing ensemble forecasts. Preliminary results from attempts to use the theory to speed the tuning of Hybrid data assimilation schemes will also be presented.

NOAA's Regional Collaboration Team Network: Alaska - Where Change is Pressing!

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: November 06, 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): (NMFS), (NOS, Alaska Regional Collaboration Team), and (NOAA Program, Planning and Integration)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and and NOAA's Regional Collaboration Team Network
Abstract:

NOAA's Central Region Team 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 empowers NOAA to engage its external partners, more efficiently utilize resources, and discover fresh avenues of potential collaboration.

Alaska appears to be ground zero for impacts of climate change in the US. This includes loss of sea ice, ocean acidification, increasing storm intensity, and melting of the permafrost. These changes are associated with severe concerns regarding resilient coastal communities, vibrant commercial and subsistence fisheries, and increasing impacts of development (i.e., oil and gas, shipping, tourism). An overlay of existing infrastructure regarding assets to assess weather, coastal bathymetry, satellite coverage, impacts of development, and climate change has led to a reorganization of NOAA's mission in Alaska. The keys to achieving NOAA's mission in this region include: (1) cooperation with other Federal and State agencies, (2) cooperation with tribal entities, (3) improvements in infrastructure in the region, and (4) a narrowing of focus and capability to provide for progress in a limited number of priority objectives for NOAA.

FishSET: A Spatial Economics Toolbox to Better Incorporate Fisher Behavior into Fisheries Management

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 07, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-3 4th Floor, Room 4817 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA economist, Alaska Fisheries Science Center)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC and NOAA Fisheries Office of Science & Technology
Abstract:

Since the 1980s, fisheries economists have modeled the factors that influence fishers' spatial and participation choices and to understand the trade-offs of fishing in different locations. This knowledge can improve predictions of how fishers will respond to the creation of marine reserves, to changes in market conditions, or to management actions such as the implementation of catch share programs.

NOAA Fisheries and partners are developing the Spatial Economics Toolbox for Fisheries (FishSET). The aim of FishSET is to join the best scientific data and tools to evaluate the trade-offs that are central to fisheries management. FishSET will improve the information available for NOAA Fisheries' core initiatives such as coastal and marine spatial planning and integrated ecosystem assessments and allow research from this well-developed field of fisheries economics to be incorporated directly into the fisheries management process.

In this talk, we provide an overview of the modeling approach, details of project implementation, and a preview of the FishSET software. An initial step of the project is the development of best practices and tools to improve data organization. A second core component is the development of estimation routines that enable comparisons of state-of-the-art fisher location choice models. FishSET will enable new models to be more easily and robustly tested and applied when the advances lead to improved predictions of fisher behavior. FishSET efficiently organizes statistical code so that leading innovators can build on each other's work and methods can be widely available to economists and managers. Pilot projects that utilize FishSET are under development in different Regions, which will ensure that the data challenges that confront modelers in different regions are confronted at the onset of the project. Implementing projects in different regions will also provide insight into how economic and fisheries data requirements for effective management may vary across different types of fisheries.

About The Speaker:

Alan is an economist at NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA. Alan's research is focused on the spatial economic analysis of fisheries under changing environmental, stock, and market conditions and with the implementation of catch shares. Alan also works extensively on spatial and incentive tools for bycatch reduction and is a member of the NPFMC's BSAI Groundfish Plan Team.

Biofuel Crops and their VOC Emissions

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 07, 2012, 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL CSD seminar room (2A305) of the David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO)
Speaker(s): Martin Graus, NOAA ESRL CSD & CU CIRES
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division
Abstract:

Over the last two decades, various legislations in the United States have targeted a reduction of the emissions of air pollutants to improve the air quality in cities, and a reduction of the country's dependence on (imported) petroleum. As one result the U.S. has become the world's largest producer of fuel ethanol. In the U.S. fuel ethanol is largely produced from corn grain in conventional starch-based fermentation. In 2010 more than 50 billion liters of fuel ethanol were produced (EIA, 2011) consuming about 40% of the total annual corn harvest, which was grown on 357,000 square km of agricultural land (NASS, 2011). The Renewable Fuel Mandate caps the starch based fuel ethanol production (corn based) and incentivizes the fuel ethanol production from cellulosic feedstock such as wood chips but also grassy plants like switchgrass or miscanthus. Plants produce numerous organic compounds in their metabolism, some of which are volatile and can escape into the atmosphere. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the atmosphere are photo-oxidized and have the potential to enhance ozone production in polluted air and contribute to the organic aerosol fraction. In order to assess the atmospheric impact of the cultivation of fuel ethanol crops, emission data from the various plant species are needed to drive the emission models. In this seminar data from several lab studies and field experiments on the VOC exchange between biofuel crops and the atmosphere will be presented and the results will be discussed.

Seminar Date and Time: November 08, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 Room 9836 (virtual seminar, the speakers is at another location)
Speaker(s): Ph.D., Co-Investigator, NOAA Environmental Cooperative Science Center and Professor at ECSC Partner Institution, Creighton University - (ECSC Lead Institution - Florida A&M University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA 2012 NOAA EPP Cooperative Science Center Seminar Series
Abstract:

Spatially explicit characterizations of wetland and surface water habitats are a key requirement for informed management of coastal ecosystems. For the past decade, scientists and students in the NOAA Environmental Cooperative Science Center (ECSC) have collaborated with Gulf and East Coast NERR partners in high spatial resolution mapping of wetland, inshore, and near shore habitats. Algorithms were developed to delineate, quantify, and (for wetlands) taxonomically classify key habitats of interest to NERR research scientists and resource managers. Dr. Schalles led a series of nine airborne imaging campaigns and a new series of satellite acquisitions of WorldView-2 imagery. His talk will discuss the development of habitat mapping products, primarily using case studies at the Mission-Aransas, Grand Bay, and Sapelo Island NERRs.

This seminar is part of the 2012 NOAA EPP Cooperative Science Center Seminar Series. The work was supported by NOAA Office of Education, Educational Partnership Program Award # NA06OAR4810164.

Communicating with the Public about Climate Change: Understanding Global Warming's Six Americas

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 08, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Remote Access Only
Speaker(s): Dr. Teresa Myers (Postdoctoral Researcher, Center for Climate Change Communication, George Mason University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Ohio Sea Grant, GLRI
Abstract:

This webinar will present research from an ongoing program conducted by George Mason University and Yale University analyzing Americans' interpretations of and responses to climate change. The research segments the American public into six audiences along a spectrum of concern and issue engagement: from the Alarmed, who are convinced of the reality and danger of climate change, and who are highly supportive of personal and political actions to mitigate the threat, to the Dismissive, who are equally convinced that climate change is not occurring and that no response should be made. The Six Americas are not very different demographically, but are dramatically different in their beliefs and actions, as well as their basic values and political orientations. The webinar will provide information about how segments of the American public think about the issue of climate change, and principles for effective communication.

Seminar Location: NOAA HQ campus, SSMC-4, Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA/NMFS), (NOAA Program, Planning and Integration), and (Pacific Regional Coordinator, NESDIS)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and and NOAA's Regional Collaboration Team Network
Abstract:

NOAA's Pacific Islands Regional Team 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 empowers NOAA to engage its external partners, more efficiently utilize resources, and discover fresh avenues of potential collaboration. The Pacific Islands Region is the largest NOAA region geographically encompassing 50% of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. The Pacific Region includes the State of Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands with over two million people all living in the coastal zone. Team Pacific's strategic vision is an integrated NOAA program that combines the special expertise and unique capabilities of individual NOAA line offices and programs to promote long-term growth and sustainability of communities, natural resources and businesses in the Pacific. Regional collaboration activities include work in: coastal and marine spatial planning/ocean governance; marine habitats, fisheries and endangered species; marine protected areas and the NOAA Sentinel Sites program; marine debris; hazards risk management; changing climate; and ocean observations; and a cross-NOAA program of outreach and engagement.

About the Speakers:

Dr. Michael Seki is the Deputy Director of the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center and the Pacific Regional Team Co-Lead. He's been with NOAA Fisheries for over 30 years, having first joined the Honolulu Laboratory (then part of the Southwest Fisheries Science Center) in 1980. As a research scientist he's studied and authored or co-authored over 40 scientific papers on topics such as open ocean food webs; the trophic ecology of tropical seabirds, deep slope bottomfish (e.g., snappers, groupers, jacks, and seamount species), and oceanic squid; and the influence of the physical oceanographic environment (e.g., fronts and eddies) on the distribution and abundance patterns of living marine resources including pelagic cephalopods, tunas and billfishes, among others.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Dr. Seki received his B.S. in biology from the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. He received his M.S. in oceanography from the University of Hawaii at Manoa's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology with a thesis focused on the distribution patterns of pelagic cephalopods through the Subarctic and Subtropical Frontal Zones of the central North Pacific. He then received his Ph.D. in marine environment and resources from Hokkaido University (Graduate School of Fisheries Science), Hakodate, Japan with a dissertation topic focused on the physical characterization and biological responses of large- and meso-scale oceanographic phenomena in the Subtropical North Pacific. In 2003, Dr. Seki shifted his primary focus from research to research administration becoming the Deputy Director of the newly-created Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center.

Frank Parker is NOAA's new National Regional Coordinator - he came to NOAA as a Knauss fellow in 2008 and has worked in OAR's Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation. Frank also spent about two years in the Under Secretary's Program Coordination Office representing NOAA Research before becoming the National Regional Coordinator just a few weeks ago. Frank has a Master's Degree from Florida International University where he did work on the biogeochemistry of a freshwater Everglades marsh. Prior to coming to NOAA, Frank was a NERRS Graduate Research Fellow at the College of William & Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

North-American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS): How Well Can We Monitor U.S. Drought?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 13, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction Conference Center (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:

The North-American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS) is a multi-institutional collaboration project which has been sponsored by the NOAA Office of Global Program (GEWEX American Prediction Project - GAPP), NASA Terrestrial Hydrology Program, and Climate Program Office (Climate Prediction Program of the Americas -CPPA, Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projection -MAPP). NLDAS is a quasi-operational system that supports U.S. operational drought monitoring and seasonal hydraulic prediction, in particular for the National Integrated Information System including U.S. Drought Monitor (USDM) and NCEP Climate Prediction Center Monthly Drought Briefing. Detailed information about NLDAS can be found at NOAA (http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/nldas) and NASA (http://ldas.gsfc.nasa.gov/nldas/) websites. The system consists of a retrospective 29-year (1979-2008) historical execution and a near real-time daily update execution using four land surface models (NCEP/Noah, NASA/Mosaic, NWS/OHD/SAC, and VIC developed by Princeton University and University of Washington) on a common 1/8th degree grid using common hourly land surface forcing. The 29-year NLDAS retrospective run is used to derive the climatology of each of the four land models. Then the current near real-time (past week, past month) land states (e.g. soil moisture, snowpack), and water fluxes (e.g. evaporation, total runoff, streamflow) of each of the four models from daily executions are depicted as anomalies and percentiles with respect to their own model climatology. One key application of the near real-time updates is drought monitoring over CONUS, shown at the "NLDAS Drought" tab of the NLDAS website. NLDAS has become mature enough for NCEP operational implementation (planned for the near future). At the same time, we recognize that the current NLDAS is not an "actual" land data assimilation system because remotely-sensed estimates of land-surface states such as soil moisture and snowpack, and in-situ observations such as streamflow and soil moisture, are not yet assimilated into current version of NLDAS. The NCEP/EMC NLDAS team is collaborating with the NASA Goddard Hydrological Sciences Laboratory to add their Land Information System (LIS) to the current NLDAS system which would allow assimilation of remotely-sensed data and in-situ observations, e.g. via an ensemble Kalman filter approach.

This study will present an introduction of NLDAS, overall evaluation of NLDAS products, in particular for total runoff, evapotranspiration, top 1m, and total column soil moisture, and application of USDM statistics to help improve and evaluate NLDAS drought monitoring products. Based on USDM statistics and an optimization approach, we developed an Optimal Blended NLDAS Drought Index (OBNDI). Several drought events 2000, 2002, 2011, and 2012 are used to demonstrate OBNDI ability. Finally we use reconstructed OBNDI to discuss 1988 U.S. drought.

Developments in Radiative Transfer Modeling, Microwave Observing Systems, and Radiance Assimilation over Clouds

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: November 14, 2012, 14:00-15:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA Center for Weather and Place Climate Prediction (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD)
Speaker(s): Al Gasiewski (University of Colorado)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA JCSDA
Abstract:

Spaceborne passive microwave observations from sensors such as AMSU and ATMS provide temperature and moisture sounding in both clear air and non-precipitating clouds, along with indirect determination of rain rate over heavier precipitating clouds. Improvements in mesoscale forecasting could be anticipated if such observations were made with higher spatial and temporal resolution, as possible, for example, from either geostationary orbit or from a fleet of LEO satellites. While both of these mission concepts are being studied, there is an associated need to understand how data from such new observation systems might be used within radiance assimilation schemes. We discuss in this talk progress in extended Kalman filtering and radiative transfer modeling applied to the problem of how to optimally use high time-space resolution passive microwave imagery, and specifically, the potential for ?precipitation locking? of NWP models onto passive microwave data. It is suggested from ab initio precipitation locking studies, although not yet proven, that time and space scales of ~15 minutes and ~15 km are needed to maintain small enough model errors in all fields so as to keep NWP models locked under conditions of mesoscale convection. The concept of locking will be illustrated through geostationary microwave observation system simulation experiments. New developments in fast Jacobian RT modeling and CubeSat based sensor concepts for facilitating high temporal/spatial measurements will also be discussed.

Speaker(s): (Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory) and Frank Parker, NOAA Programs, Plans and Integration
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and and NOAA Regional Collaboration Network
Abstract:

NOAA's Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Team (GLRCT) is part of the NOAA Regional Collaboration network. Established in 2006, the network now includes approximately 500 employees and affiliates across NOAA's eight regions. "ReCo" empowers NOAA to engage external partners, more efficiently utilize resources, and discover fresh avenues of potential collaboration.

NOAA's GLRCT comprises the eight states that border the Great Lakes. Nicknamed the "Third Coast," these five lakes possess an impressive 95 percent of the country's surface fresh water supply, making them a critical resource for the both region and the nation. The GLRCT is strengthened by membership not only from NOAA's Line Offices, but also by membership of multiple core academic and nonprofit partners. Several of these core partner members are themselves collaborative initiatives, which further strengthens partnerships in the region.

As part of the presentation, we look forward to hearing your ideas, regardless of your involvement in regional collaboration, about issues and projects the teams might pursue.

About the Speaker:

Marie Colton is the Director of the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, and Regional Team Lead for the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Team; Frank Parker, from NOAA Programs, Plans and Integration is the NOAA's new National Regional Coordinator. Since 2009, Marie Colton has been Director of the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), one of seven OAR laboratories.

(Seminar Postponed) Infectious Disease Research in Fish: A Focus on Understanding the Biology and Pathogenesis of Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia in North America

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: (Seminar Postponed) November 15, 2012, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone (times may vary) [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Conference Room, NOAA Fisheries James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory at Sandy Hook, New Jersey (Directions)
Speaker(s): (NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, Office of Fish & Wildlife Health and Forensics)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA James J. Howard Marines Sciences Laboratory
Abstract:

Infectious diseases impact wild and farmed fish populations, with disease outbreaks often traced back to environmental conditions that are suboptimal for fish. A major pathogen causing declines in wild fish throughout North America is viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) virus. Viral hemorrhagic septicemia is a disease that affects over 70 fish species throughout the northern hemisphere and is considered one of the most important fish diseases because of its broad host and geographical range. In North America VHS has been found in the northeastern Pacific Ocean from California to Alaska, the Great Lakes, and in Atlantic Canada. During this presentation an overview of VHS virus will be provided and recent research done in Vancouver Island to understand the pathogenesis of this disease within the coastal waters of British Columbia, Canada will be discussed. To understand the risk this virus may pose to fish within New Jersey, discussion will focus on the biology of the virus and how it has been able to spread to global proportions. A new project that is currently underway to monitor for pathogens and diseases, including VHS, in coastal fishes of NJ will be presented.

About The Speaker:

Dr. Jan Lovy's research interests are in comparative fish pathology and immunology. His current research is directed towards understanding how infectious diseases impact wild and farm-raised fishes within NJ.

NOAA's Regional Collaboration Team Network: "NOAA West"

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: November 20, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ, SSMC-4, Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
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.

Using Ecospace to Model Effects of Hypoxia on the Biomass of Living Marine Resources in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: November 27, 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): (term assistant professor, George Mason University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Science Seminar Series and the NCCOS Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research
Abstract:

The Northern Gulf of Mexico (NGOMEX) has the most prominent hypoxic zone in the U.S. as a result of Mississippi River water input. Given the high economic value of NGOMEX fisheries, it is important to investigate the effect of hypoxia on nekton communities, and to determine the need to include potential impacts of hypoxia on fisheries species in management efforts. To this purpose, a temporal and spatially dynamic ecosystem model (Ecospace) is developed using EwE software that includes key fisheries species, e.g. gulf shrimp, menhaden and red snapper, and the components of their food web (e.g. phyto- and zooplankton and other fish species). This presentation is an overview of the progress made developing Ecospace scenarios. This will include the introduction of some new capabilities in Ecospace that have been developed in conjunction with this project. This project is part of a larger effort to study the effects of hypoxia on living marine resources in the Gulf of Mexico (the CSCOR NGOMEX project), and is a product of collaboration.

About the Speakers:

Kim de Mutsert is term assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science & Policy at George Mason University, and faculty fellow at the Potomac Environmental Research and Education Center. Her research is focused on applied fish ecology in coastal, estuarine and freshwater ecosystems. Current projects include modeling the response of living marine resources to hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, studying effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on Gulf shrimp, studying spawning success of river herring in Potomac River tributaries, and monitoring the long-term recovery from eutrophication of a tidal freshwater ecosystem (Gunston Cove) in Virginia. She holds a BS and MS from the University of Amsterdam, and a PhD from Louisiana State University.

About the Speakers:

Cynthia Cudaback grew up in Oakland, CA, with the ocean always in view. After getting a BA in physics from UC Berkeley, she served for five years as a NOAA Corps officer, and later received a PhD in geophysics from the University of Washington. She has 20 years research experience in coastal and estuarine circulation and the effects of that circulation on the transport of micro-organisms, pollutants and nutrients.

The only thing Cynthia likes better than doing science is talking about it. While teaching introductory oceanography at North Carolina State University, she articulated her personal mission: to provide students with the tools they need to make informed decisions about the ocean. She developed an 8-page ocean literacy survey to measure her progress toward this goal. Cynthia’s current teaching efforts in grades K-12 are guided partly by what she learned from her undergraduates.

Abstract:

The North Atlantic Regional Team (NART) and Southeast & Caribbean Regional Team (SECART) are part of the NOAA Regional Collaboration Team network established in 2006 and comprised of approximately 500 employees and affiliates from each of NOAA's eight regions. The network empowers NOAA to engage its external partners, more efficiently utilize resources, and discover fresh avenues of potential collaboration and integration. NART and SECART are collaborating on this presentation to highlight regional science and management issues and activities along the Atlantic seaboard and the Caribbean, including ecosystem-based management, climate, resilience, ocean planning and the NOAA in the Caribbean Initiative.

Some Theoretical Advancements and Improved Conceptions in Ocean Wave Shoaling and Wave-Current Interactions

Date and Time: November 29, 2012, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction Conference Center Rm 2155 (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD 20740)

Abstract:

Understanding the free-surface flow regime in oceans, seas and other water basins is of high importance to various applications. These applications include: sea state forecasting, climate and weather research, oceanographic research, coastal and off-shore engineering, environmental modeling, ecological and ecosystem modeling and so on. Surface gravity waves, specifically, play a crucial role in both deep water and near-shore flows. Currently, surface wave forecasting models, which are adequate for large-scale domains, do not account for some important physical phenomena. The seminar will present progress in two significant physical processes of ocean surface waves. These processes will be nonlinear wave shoaling and the wave-current interactions.

In order to address an audience with various backgrounds, some basic concepts of wave propagation will be discussed, and the main mechanism for near-shore nonlinear energy transfer will be explained in a simplistic manner. An improved conception for wave shoaling, which can be contrary to what linear wave shoaling intuition would indicate, will be presented. Numerical solutions of simplistic nonlinear wave shoaling problems will be used for explaining the involved physical mechanisms.

The part on wave-current interactions will first discuss vertically-averaged currents. Advancements in modeling the interactions of waves with strong as well as faster changing vertically averaged currents will be presented. Second, vertically-structured currents will be investigated. In recent years the capability of circulation models has significantly improved reproducing the vertical variability of ocean flows. Further advancements have coupled forecasting models to circulation ones. Still, the wave-action equation used in forecasting models accounts only to vertically averaged currents requiring the averaging of the circulation models' results. A wave-action equation that overcome this shortcoming will be presented and discussed.
