Using Super High-Definition Videography to Gather Broad-Scale Baseline Data on the Distribution and Abundance of Marine Species

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 05, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 10th Floor Large Conference Room 10836 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910) Remote attendance is encouraged
Speaker(s): Iain J. Stenhouse, Ph.D., Director of Marine Bird Program, Biodiversity Research Institute
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, Fisheries Office of Science and Technology
Abstract:

Compared to terrestrial locations, offshore wind energy developers and regulators are faced with a relative paucity of information on wildlife distributions and habitats in marine areas. However, they require access to the best available information in order to make informed decisions during the siting and permitting process. The U.S. Department of Energy has funded a three-year project to gather baseline data and reduce market barriers to offshore wind in the mid-Atlantic continental shelf region of the United States. The project is designed to provide essential baseline information for assessing the effects of planned offshore developments on seabirds, marine mammals, and sea turtles. The Mid-Atlantic Baseline Studies Project recently initiated the first broad-scale use of aerial surveillance employing high-definition video cameras in North America. This technique has become a commonly used method for broad-scale environmental and wildlife surveys in Europe. Multiple video cameras mounted on the underside of twin-engine aircraft capture high-resolution images of objects, and video footage is later reviewed by a ground-based team of biologists to identify animals to the lowest possible taxonomic group. The video is linked to a GPS system that provides each frame with a precise geographical location, and parallax technology that estimates the flight height of avian targets. Compared with traditional direct observational aerial surveys, the advantages of this technique are many, including: faster coverage of the study area, reduced disturbance to wildlife, improved quality control, auditable data, and safer flying at much higher elevations. The technique is also proving to be a potentially useful method for surveying other marine taxa, including sharks and rays. This presentation includes preliminary results of the Mid-Atlantic surveys, focusing on the accuracy and ease of identification of different taxonomic groups, as well as the challenges faced, and recommendations on the broad application of this technique in the marine environment.

The Ocean Health Index: Global Assessment and Future Directions

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 06, 2013; 13:00-14:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3, Room 14836 (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Director, Center for Marine Assessment and Planning (CMAP)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, National Marine Fisheries Service, Office of Science and Technology
Abstract:

The ocean plays a critical role in supporting human well-being, from providing food, livelihoods and recreational opportunities to regulating the global climate. Sustainable management aimed at maintaining the flow of a broad range of benefits from the ocean requires a comprehensive and quantitative method to measure and monitor the health of coupled human-ocean systems. We created an index comprising ten diverse public goals for a healthy coupled human-ocean system and calculated the index for every coastal country. Globally, the overall index score was 60 out of 100 (range 36-86), with developed countries generally performing better than developing countries, but with notable exceptions. Only 5% of countries scored higher than 70, whereas 32% scored lower than 50. The index provides a powerful tool to raise public awareness, direct resource management, improve policy and prioritize scientific research. Current activities and future directions for the Index will be presented and discussed.

About The Speaker:

Ben Halpern is Director of CMAP and a Research Biologist at the Marine Science Institute. He also serves as Project Coordinator for a large project on Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) of coastal marine systems, based at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, and is a lead scientist for the Ocean Health Index project. Much of his research addresses issues related to Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning (CMSP), including cumulative impact and ecosystem service tradeoff assessments.

[Seminar Canceled] Climate Change Projections: Opportunities and Challenges for Applications to Terrestrial and Marine Ecosystems

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: [Seminar Canceled] March 06, 2013; 14:30-15:30 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3, Room 10836 (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, Office of Science and Technology, NOAA Fisheries Service
Abstract:

Scientists, resource managers and other decision makers are increasingly expected to use climate information in assessment, planning and decision-making, but many struggle with the uncertainty associated with climate information. There is often a disconnect between the climate modeling and applications communities, in terms of what models can and can't do. Much of the uncertainty stems from how to best use the output from global climate models. There are three major sources of uncertainty in climate projections: i) model error, ii) how anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions will change in the future, often addressed by different "scenarios" and iii) natural variability. The latter can have a surprisingly large impact on short term variability and long-term trends on physical quantities, including temperature, precipitation and winds. This presentation will address the ability of climate models to simulate present day conditions and project future conditions relevant to ecological systems. We will focus on how natural climate variability can complicate using climate projections in understanding and projecting changes in hydrology and marine ecosystems. We will discuss how climate projections can be useful in ecological applications including providing strategic management advice despite these uncertainties.

Absorbing Trace Gases and Aerosols: Recent Laboratory and Field Work on Glyoxal and Brown Carbon

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 06, 2013; 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL CSD seminar room (2A305) David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO)
Speaker(s): Rebecca Washenfelder, NOAA ESRL & CU CIRES
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, ESRL CSD
Abstract:

Recent advances in optical spectroscopy have led to new broadband cavity enhanced spectrometers (BBCES) that combine high-finesse optical cavities with high-powered LED light sources, spectrally resolving the light output with a grating spectrometer. This technique can be used to make sensitive, in situ measurements of optical extinction. Organic compounds contribute a large fraction of aerosol mass, and glyoxal has been identified in previous laboratory and field studies to be one potential source of organic mass. We deployed a BBCES instrument to measure glyoxal during summer 2010 in Pasadena, California. We used three methods to quantify the contribution of glyoxal to aerosol in Los Angeles, and found that it accounts for only 0 - 4% of the secondary organic aerosol mass. Quantifying the optical properties of aerosols is important to understand their role in the Earth's radiative budget. Previous measurements have indicated that brown carbon aerosol has a wavelength-dependent absorption that increases in the ultraviolet spectral region, and recent modeling suggests that this is an important component of aerosol radiative forcing. We have conducted recent laboratory and field measurements of aerosol scattering and absorption in the ultraviolet spectral region to address these issues.

Dr. Athelstan Spilhaus: How a South African Scallywag Became "The Flywheel of American Science"

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 7, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Sharon Moen, University of Minnesota Sea Grant
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, and NOAA Library
Abstract:

To Walter Cronkite he was "the most interesting person I've ever interviewed." President Kennedy joked that the only science he knew was because of him. Colorful, sharp thinking, and intensely productive, Dr. Athelstan Spilhaus (1911-1998) was, among other things, the "Father of Sea Grant." Appointed by presidents and advisor to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, his breathtakingly diverse accomplishments include a sculpture that stands in downtown New York, an oceanographic tool that helped win WWII, and a mishap that fueled the Roswell Incident. As Dr. Spilhaus's unconventional personality and notable contributions to science and the United States prove, you can do anything if you have the gall!

The Snowfall Shuffle: Changes in Global Distributions of Snow in Response to Climate Change

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 12, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Sarah Kapnick (NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, NODC and NOAA Library
Abstract:

Understanding snowfall variability is key to understanding water supply in snowmelt-dominated regions. A new high-resolution global climate model CM2.5, developed at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, is used to explore snow variability in the present climate and as a result of doubling atmospheric CO2. Globally in CM2.5 and coarser models, snowfall increases in the high-to-mid latitudes and decreases in the mid-to-low latitudes. However, in mid-to-low latitudes, CM2.5 is unique in that its high resolution allows it to resolve complex mountain systems, leading to a change in sign in snowfall projections over high mountains in comparison to older models. Over the U.S., the future climate experiment exhibits significant reductions in average annual snowfall with the greatest percentages occurring in the south, along the eastern coast, and the Pacific Northwest.

Management and Conservation of Fisheries and Marine Resources in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea under Future Climate Change Scenarios

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 20, 2013; 11:00-12:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 Room 9836 (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (University of Miami Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies and NOAA Fisheries Service Early Life History Research Team)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, Office of Science and Technology, NOAA Fisheries Service
Abstract:

Climate change is likely to impact marine resource management through a variety of mechanisms, such as direct loss of temperature-sensitive habitats, such as corals, changes in temperature regulated processes such as spawning and larval growth, and altered regional larval dispersal pathways. In addition, changes in the biogeochemical environment may result in altered foodwebs and feeding conditions, affecting larval survival and eventual recruitment to adult populations.

A collaborative project between NOAA, academia and private industry has been working to combine downscaled models of future climate change conditions with habitat and spawning models for economically important pelagic fish species, focusing on the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. This presentation will summarize work to date, and demonstrate the utility of downscaled climate models for investigating climate change impacts on a wide range of marine habitats and resources.

Speaker(s): (NOAA Alaska Regional Marine Debris Coordinator)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries West Coast Region
Abstract:

NOAA Alaska Marine Debris Coordinator Peter Murphy will provide an update an outlook on marine debris along the North Pacific coast for 2013, including debris generated by the 2011 Japanese tsunami.

About The Speaker:

Peter Murphy started in NOAA's Assessment and Restoration Division, and joined the Marine Debris Program in 2007 as part of the Gulf of Mexico Marine Debris Project, a response to the impact of marine debris generated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Peter moved from that project to take on the Alaska Coordinator role, which he's held since 2009. Peter and his colleagues work to understand the impacts of marine debris and communicate them to policy-makers, stakeholders, and the public. Alaska, with its massive and remote coastline, significant coastal resources, and strong marine economy and culture, is a dynamic and important part of the marine debris landscape. In addition to his work with marine debris, Peter enjoys being up in the mountains, skiing, or backpacking. He also enjoys cooking and University of Washington sports, and combining those into tailgating.

Observation Impact Estimation and TC Relocation - Developments on the global Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF)

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 26, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NCWCP Conference Center (5830 University Research Court, College Park,MD 20740)
Speaker(s): Yoichiro Ota (NCEP/EMC Visiting from JMA)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, National Centers for Environmental Prediction Environmental Modeling Center seminar
Abstract:

In this seminar, I will present works during my two-year stay in the NCEP/EMC, especially focusing on two topics: observation impact estimation, and better representation of Tropical Cyclone (TC) in the Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF).

The first part of the talk will be about the observation impact estimation technique using the ensembles. The method of Kalnay et al. (2012) has been applied to the GFS/EnKF system assimilating almost all observation types used in the operational Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS). The basic idea is similar to the adjoint-based observation impact estimation proposed by Langland and Baker (2004). Ensemble-based method can be used without an adjoint model so that it is convenient for the ensemble-based data assimilation system. Observation impact estimation can be a powerful tool to monitor and investigate the observation quality and data assimilation system. The example of the application of the impact estimates as well as key issues using ensembles will be presented.

The second part of the talk will focus on the representation of TCs in the EnKF analysis and ensemble forecast. Current operational global EnKF analysis does not apply any TC relocation procedure. This could cause a problem on the TC structure in the EnKF analysis and high resolution GDAS analysis through the ensemble-based background error covariance. On the other hand, future Global Ensemble Forecasting System (GEFS) is planned to utilize the EnKF 6 hour forecast perturbations for its initial perturbations. Thus, the TC relocation is also necessary in the ensemble forecasting purpose. I will briefly review the current operational GEFS TC relocation method and propose a new approach allowing more consistent initial uncertainty on TCs. Results from a preliminary experiment will be shown.

Molecular Chemistry of Atmospheric Aerosols and Their Environmental Impacts

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 27, 2013; 15:30-16:30 Mountain Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL CSD seminar room (2A305) David Skaggs Research Center (325 Broadway, Boulder, CO)
Speaker(s): Alexander Laskin, Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, ESRL CSD
Abstract:

Fundamental understanding of the complex chemistry of atmospheric aerosols, its environmental impacts is a challenging task because no single method of analytical chemistry is capable of providing the full range of analytical chemistry information. Electron microscopy and micro-spectroscopy approaches can visualize individual particles and their internal structures; however, they largely exclude molecular-level information, and are limited to elemental and chemical bonding characterization. Contemporary methods of high-resolution mass spectrometry can provide detailed information on the molecular content of organic aerosol, but these methods use bulk particle samples and provide no knowledge of the individual particle composition. Therefore, application of complementary analytical methods of chemical analysis is necessary for comprehensive characterization of aerosol properties ranging from bulk molecular composition of aerosol organic constituents to microscopy level details of individual particles. Combined assessment of the results provided by complementary analytical chemistry techniques offers unique insights to understand the composition and environmental chemistry of aerosols. This presentation will give an overview of our recent field and laboratory studies of atmospheric aerosols with an overall goal to understand fundamental relationship between composition of airborne particles and their environmental impacts.

"The Coast" is Complicated: A Model to Consistently Describe the Nation's Coastal Population

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 27, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [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): , NOS Special Projects Division and , NOS Communication and Education Division
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, NOS Science Seminar Series and NOS Special Projects Division
Abstract:

Because no single delineation of "the coast" provides all of the demographic statistics needed to address the full range of policy and management issues, a variety of U.S. coastal population statistics are currently being used. We propose a simple model for generating and applying coastal population statistics at the national and regional level, with the intent of increasing consistency in coastal policy discussions and improving public understanding of coastal issues. Using this model, we describe the nation's current coastal population and basic trends from 1980 to 2020.

About The Speakers:

Brent Ache is Chief of NOS Special Projects Division. Kristen Crossett is a Communications Specialist in NOS Communication and Education Division.

Climate Change, Uncertainty and Communication

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 27, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Remote access only
Speaker(s): Dr. Mark Berliner, Professor and Chair of the Department of Statistics, Ohio State University
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, NOS Science Seminar Series and NOS Special Projects Division
Abstract:

Decision support is a collection of tools for the communication of issues underpinning the selection of actions or policies. Climate policy is a particularly challenging arena for decision support due to the complex connections between climate and human activities; numerous interest groups with competing interest; and uncertainties in both the future of climate and the impacts of actions. Strategies for treating the uncertainties, including dealing with uncertainty about our understanding of that uncertainty, are discussed. This webinar will discuss dealing with uncertainty, and challenges in communicating with diverse groups.

About The Speakers:

Dr. Mark Berliner is Professor and Chair of the Department of Statistics at OSU. He has served as Geophysical Statistics Project Leader at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, as a Contributing Author to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and as co-chair of the American Statistical Association's Advisory Committee on Climate Change Policy. He is Vice-Chair of the Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification of The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Heat Stress Reduces Labor Capacity Under Climate Warming

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: March 28, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 Library (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): John Dunne, NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminars, and NOAA Library
Abstract:

A fundamental aspect of greenhouse-gas-induced warming is a global-scale increase in absolute humidity. Under continued warming, this response has been shown to pose increasingly severe limitations on human activity in tropical and midlatitudes during peak months of heat stress. One heat-stress metric with broad occupational health applications is wetbulb globe temperature. We combine wet-bulb globe temperatures from global climate historical reanalysis and Earth System Model (ESM2M) projections with industrial and military guidelines for an acclimated individual's occupational capacity to safely perform sustained labour under environmental heat stress (labor capacity) - here defined as a global population-weighted metric temporally fixed at the 2010 distribution. We estimate that environmental heat stress has reduced labor capacity to 90% in peak months over the past few decades. ESM2M projects labor capacity reduction to 80% in peak months by 2050. Under the highest scenario considered (Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5), ESM2M projects labor capacity reduction to less than 40% by 2200 in peak months, with most tropical and mid-latitudes experiencing extreme climatological heat stress. Uncertainties and caveats associated with these projections include climate sensitivity, climate warming patterns, CO2 emissions, future population distributions, and technological and societal change.
