Making Sense of (Paleo)Climate Sensitivity

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 04, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NCWCP Rm 2155 (5830 University Research Court College Park, MD 20740)
Speaker(s): Henk A. Dijkstra (Utrecht University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
Abstract:

Climate sensitivity (S) describes Earth's resulting global mean surface temperature adaptation (ΔT in K) to a changing radiative forcing (deltaR, in Wm-2) at the top of the atmosphere, thus, S =ΔT/ΔR. Natural climate changes have occurred in the pre-anthropogenic past due to changes in insolation, atmospheric composition, and feedback responses within the Earth system. Using observations and modeling, paleoclimate studies quantify these changes to estimate equilibrium climate sensitivity (a critical but thus far poorly constrained system component in models for projections of future climate change). However, problems exists between studies, regarding comparability of concepts and reference system definition. These obstruct the development of a coherent picture of equilibrium climate sensitivity through time, and so of its dependence on the background climate state. We assess these issues, in particular the confusion over feedback versus forcing, and propose a pragmatic way forward.

Tracking HAB Toxins: Advances in Underwater Robotic Sensors

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 05, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-4 Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NCCOS/Center for Coastal Environmental Health & Biomolecular Research)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science
Abstract:

The molecular tools available for characterizing harmful algal bloom (HAB) growth and toxicity continue to expand, but their application is largely restricted to the laboratory and the time required for analyses can limit their usefulness. New generations of an autonomous, robotic molecular detection system (Environmental Sample Processor; ESP), coupled with observations from satellites, ships, drifters, and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), now permit description of HABs in the context of ecosystem variability from regional to molecular scales. Domoic acid (DA) producing diatoms of the genus Pseudo-nitzschia were the focus of field experiments conducted in southern and central California, during which their abundance, toxicity, and associated zooplankton were monitored. In situ, near-real time molecular analyses of planktonic communities and DA by moored ESPs, recently augmented with bloom tracking/sampling by AUVs using autonomous feature recognition, revealed variation in Pseudo-nitzschia abundance, toxicity, and DA trophic transfer potential, in concert with changes in oceanographic conditions. The next generation ESP will integrate in situ molecular analyses with AUV-based intelligent sampling to enable tracking and near-real time analyses of a bloom population's genomic and biochemical signatures.

About The Speaker:

Greg Doucette is a Research Oceanographer in the Harmful Algal Bloom & Analytical Response Branch of the NOS/NCCOS/CCEHBR laboratory in Charleston, SC. He has worked in the HAB field for over two decades and has published more than 95 peer-reviewed articles and 10 book chapters. His research interests include toxin physiology, toxin trophic transfer, algal-bacterial interactions, and detection methods for HAB toxins and species. He has collaborated with US and international partners on numerous HAB-related grants, served on national/international planning committees and advisory boards, and received the NOAA Administrator's Award for his work on underwater toxin sensors. Today's presentation highlights his exciting, long-standing collaboration with Dr. Chris Scholin (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Inst.) to develop autonomous HAB sensors.

Using Mobile Tide-Gage Networks to Observe Storm Surge

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 06, 2012, 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA SSMC-4 Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Acting Chief of the USGS Office of Surface Water
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and NOAA Coastal Services Center
Abstract:

Historically, hurricane-induced storm-tides were documented through analysis of the records from a select few tide gages and high-water marks. However, these sources provide limited information about the timing of the flood, the sequencing of multiple paths by which the storm-surge waters inundated inland areas, or the magnitude of waves and wave run-up comprising inland flood waters. Nor could highwater marks be used to evaluate storm-surge model performance along the dynamic track of a hurricane with its accompanying changes in wind strength and direction.

In response to these deficiencies, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed and deployed a mobile storm-tide network to provide detailed time-series data for selected hurricane landfalls (http://water.usgs.gov/osw/programs/storm_surge1.html). As part of this program, water-level and barometric pressure monitors are deployed to areas of forecasted hurricane landfall resulting in a concentrated network of as many as 260 temporary, tide gages placed along water channels and nearby overland features such as beaches, wetlands, and constructed environments. This presentation will provide an overview of the mobile network concept and a review of its deployment and some uses of the data including a discussion of deployment for Hurricane Sandy.

About The Speaker:

Robert Mason is the Acting Chief of the USGS Office of Surface Water where he oversees the USGS storm-tide monitor program and a staff who provide technical support to the USGS water science center hydrologists engaged in the study of various problems in surface-water hydraulics and hydrology.

Do Trophic Cascades Affect the Storage and Flux of Atmospheric Carbon? An Analysis of Sea Otters and Kelp Forests

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 11, 2012, 10:00-11:00 Alaska Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Webex/phone access only
Speaker(s): Chris Wilmers, University of California, Santa Cruz
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ACCAP Alaska Climate Webinars
Abstract:

We combine data collected over the last 40 years to estimate the indirect effects of sea otters on ecosystem carbon production and storage across their North American range from Vancouver Island to the western edge of the Aleutian Islands. We find that sea otters, by suppressing sea urchins, substantially increase kelp ecosystem productivity and have a strong influence on kelp carbon flux and storage. Over an ecosystem area of approximately 5.1 x 1010 meters, the effect of sea otter predation on living kelp biomass alone is approximate to 5.6-11% of the carbon contained in the volume of atmosphere above the North American sea otter range; 21-42% of the increase in atmospheric carbon since pre-industrial times in that same volume of atmosphere; or the carbon emissions from 5 million cars in an average year. This stored carbon would be valued at $304-603 million on the European Carbon Exchange. Results support evidence that predator-driven ecosystem changes influence the rates of carbon flux and storage in many other species and ecosystems.

Coupled Modeling: Principles Ad Reality From A MMAB Perspective

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 11, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NEPCC (5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD 20740)
Speaker(s): (NCEP/EMC)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
Abstract:

The Marine Modeling and Analysis Branch (MMAB) of EMC has been involved in coupled modeling for many years. Notably, we are working on coupled Atmosphere-Ocean-Wave modeling for hurricanes, and coupled wave-surge modeling for inundation and coastal hazards. The presentation will focus on lessons learned from these projects. The architecture of coupling and coupler will be discussed, as well as relevant examples of issues and solutions for the MMAB applications. Most importantly, from our experience it is realized that present coupling strategies are not conducive to direct improvement of operational systems, and hence not likely to be introduced in operations. Alternate coupling strategies, based on advancing physical model improvements, are suggested.

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 11, 2012, 12:00 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Remote Access Only
Speaker(s): Bruce H. Braine (Vice President of Strategic Policy Analysis, American Electric Power)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Ohio Sea Grant
Abstract:

With the recent Presidential and Congressional elections behind us, what can we now expect with regard to energy and climate change policy in the US? Will President Obama's reelection result in movement in either climate or clean energy legislation in Congress, despite a "status quo" Congress? What role will EPA play in formulating future climate policy through new regulations? Could a carbon tax play a role in a future budget deal to close the large Federal deficit? How does the implementation of the current regulations on automobiles and utilities along with the emergence of large shale gas supplies affect President Obama's Copenhagen commitments for a 17% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2020? This webinar will provide a perspective on potential future energy and climate change policies in the US, the effect of economic concerns on climate policy, and the role of government agencies in new approaches to the problem.

About The Speaker:

Global Surveillance for Pathogen Emergence in Marine and Terrestrial Wildlife

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 11, 2012, 13:00 - 14:00 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): Jonna Mazet and Tracey Goldstein (Wildlife Health Center, University of California Davis)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC NOAA Central Library
Abstract:

In order to predict, detect, respond to, and prevent the emergence of infectious diseases, we must identify them at their source. Rapid human population growth and environmental changes have resulted in increased numbers of people living in close contact with animals in altered habitats, disrupting the ecological balance between pathogens and their hosts. Our One Health approach targets important sentinel species at active wildlife-human interfaces in hotspot regions and integrates risk modeling, molecular diagnostics, and intensive field studies to detect novel diseases with pandemic potential early, giving wildlife and human health professionals and resource managers the best opportunity to prevent emergence or control epidemics early. We will discuss current evidence of shifting wildlife and human pathogen dynamics in conjunction with land use change and climate variability in marine and terrestrial systems and illustrate the emergence of a potentially devastating pathogen in the Northeast Pacific, an unforeseen effect of global warming on marine mammal biodiversity.

Abstract:

Over the past 20+ years there has been remarkable progress in developing a global ocean observing system. Global in-situ observations of essential climate variables in the ice-free ocean to 2000m depth are now routinely available to address the long-term observational requirements of forecast and modeling centers, international research programs, major scientific assessments, and decision-makers. This presentation will review some of the needs for a global ocean observing system as well as describe the relevant observing systems and some new discoveries about the ocean and its role in the earth system. Additionally, prospects and plans for future observations necessary to address emerging scientific frontiers will be addressed.

About The Speaker:

Dr. David M. Legler currently serves as a Chief of NOAA's Climate Observations Division in NOAA's Climate Program Office. The Division is leading NOAA's efforts to develop and contributions to the global ocean observing system for climate. Before coming to NOAA, Dr Legler directed the US Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR - a program of the World Climate Research Program) Office in Washington, DC for over 10 years where he coordinated scientific and programmatic activities addressing a wide range of topics including the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). Formerly at Florida State University, he has published on topics such as ocean remote sensing, air-sea interaction, and the impacts of ENSO on North American climate and subsequent effects on US agriculture and water resources.

Impact of NPP Satellite Assimilation in U.S. Navy Global Modeling System

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 12, 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): Ben Ruston (Naval Research Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA JCSDA
Abstract:

The NPP Suomi satellite has 3 sensors, ATMS, CrIS, and OMPS which are of high interest for assimilation into the Navy's 4-Dimensional Variational (4D-Var) assimilation system, NAVDAS-AR. This presentation will primarily address the work done with the ATMS sensor, and will show some of the early work with OMPS; however, the assimilation of CrIS will be saved for a future date. The core of the Navy's global forecast system is the 42-level NOGAPS model, the follow-on system is the 50-level NAVGEM model both with a model top of 0.04 hPa and both are accompanied by the 4D-Var system NAVDAS-AR. The system currently assimilates radiances from microwave (AMSU-A, MHS, SSMIS) and infrared satellite sounders (AIRS and IASI) in addition to the bending angle from GNSS-RO. The current NAVDAS-AR system can compute bias corrections for satellite radiances from either an offline Harris-Kelley type approach, or using a variational bias correction (varBC). The experiments using the 42-level NOGAPS model use a Harris-Kelly bias correction, while NAVGEM experiments use the varBC. The assimilation of ATMS produces stable innovations (observation minus background) over time, with biases of similar magnitude to those of heritage MW sounders. The current observational system has good data coverage in space and time from IR/MW sounders; thus a forecast metric such as 500 hPa anomaly correlation against self-analysis does not show significant impact from the addition of ATMS assimilation. However, the examination of adjoint-based observation impact using a 24-hour global moist total energy error norm shows consistent positive impact from ATMS with very similar observation impact as seen in AMSU-A.

New Perspectives on an Ancient Species: studying the feeding ecology of the Atlantic Horseshoe Crab from the air and land

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 13, 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): Wan-Jean Lee, National Sea Grant Office
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA 2012 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

The Atlantic Horseshoe Crab, Limulus polyphemus are well known for their spawning behavior, where large numbers aggregate along the high water mark. Concerns over sustainability of current levels of harvest of Limulus by the eel and whelk fisheries for bait and biomedical industries have resulted in increased efforts to understand the ecology of the species. The majority of on-going monitoring and management strategies focus on Limulus reproductive ecology and health of spawning habitat. There remains a lack of understanding of Limulus foraging ecology and habitats needed to support the trophic requirements of a population. I will discuss innovative aerial survey methods developed to examine the feeding ecology of Limulus in the Great Bay Estuary of New Hampshire, and new insights into Limulus ecology.

Changing Bio-economic Conditions, Vessel Responses, and Financial Outcomes in the Federal Gulf of Mexico Shrimp Fishery; a 2006 through 2009 Comparison of Annual Vessel-Level Data

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: December 13, 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): Robert Jones, Office of Marine Conservation, US Department of State
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA 2012 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

An understanding of how federally-permitted Gulf shrimp vessels have responded to changes in three major bio-economic conditions shrimp prices, fuel prices, and shrimp abundance is poorly understood. This research uses three National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) self-reported datasets in order to develop an economic profile of a sample of active vessels in the federal fishery from 2006 to 2009. A financial accounting framework is used to generate vessel-level averages for these vessels. An index of bio-economic conditions (BECI) is developed to summarize and quantify the major exogenous impacts on the fishery. New results on fishing effort, labor and efficiency are generated, and changes in these results are explained in reference to the BECI. Results indicate that the BECI fluctuated substantially from 2006 to 2009, decreasing in 2007 and 2008 before rebounding in 2009. Changes in fishing effort, fuel, labor and fixed costs, show a recognizable relationship to changes in the BECI. The consistent reporting of net losses from operations by the average vessel suggests that unless bio-economic conditions in the fishery dramatically improve or management action that restricts capacity is undertaken, federally-permitted Gulf of Mexico shrimp vessels will continue to struggle economically.
