The Nature of Effective Mentoring - Building Relationships that Work for Both Students and Mentors

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 04, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Remote Access Only
Speaker(s): Ambrose Jearld, Jr., Ph.D., Director of Academic Affairs, NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, EPP Cooperative Science Center Seminar Series.
Abstract:

In March 2009, the Woods Hole Diversity Initiative (WHDI) launched the Partnership Education Program (PEP), a multi-institutional effort to increase diversity in the student population (and ultimately the work force) in the Woods Hole science community. PEP, a summer research internship program, is open to students of all backgrounds but is designed especially to provide opportunities for individuals from populations under-represented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to come to Woods Hole to study or do research. A month-long course, "Ocean and Environmental Sciences: Global Climate Change," sets the stage for their summer research projects. The PEP model is emerging as an effective and sustainable approach in retaining students. Building an effective mentoring relationship between mentor and mentee is a key ingredient. PEP is gaining national recognition; as a collaborative, partnership initiative, PEP has established a critical mass of underrepresented students participating in Woods Hole science. PEP's instrumental role in supporting students as they pursue STEM education and careers and helping them maintain a positive trajectory is invaluable as a sustainable approach that features institutions that pool resources to accomplish a common goal. Effective mentoring - building relationships that work between students and mentors, is a critical part of the success of the PEP program , which serves as our case study. Some thoughts on what makes a good mentor and a good mentee will be discussed, and ideas will be presented on how to move forward.

Seminar Location: Conference Center, NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction,5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD
Speaker(s): Milija Zupanski (Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, Colorado State University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, JCSDA's Seminar Series
Abstract:

New instruments on the GOES-R satellite, such as the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM), have the capability to improve assimilation and prediction of clouds, with important implications for severe weather and tropical storms. In this presentation we will assess the value of the GOES-R ABI and GLM proxy observations in applications to data assimilation of severe weather and tropical cyclones using a regional cloud-resolving data assimilation system developed at CIRA/Colorado State University and several configurations of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) models, including the (WRF)-Nonhydrostatic Mesoscale Model (NMM), WRF-Advanced Research (ARW), and Hurricane WRF. We will also briefly describe the development of the data assimilation system used in these applications and the challenges of all-sky satellite radiance data assimilation at cloud-resolving scales. Future research and applications directions will also be discussed.

Pollution in Paradise: Evidence of High Levels of Pollution in the Coral Reef Ecosystems of Guanica Bay, Puerto Rico

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 05, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [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): , National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOS
Abstract:

Although pollution is a known cause of the decline of coral reefs world-wide, the distribution and magnitude of pollutants in coral ecosystems, as well as knowledge of the specific relationship between contaminants and corals is not well understood. Scientists from NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science in collaboration with the University of Puerto Rico recently completed an interdisciplinary study to establish an environmental baseline of pollution and coral reef condition in and around Guanica Bay, Puerto Rico. In this study, a suite of 154 analytes, including 14 major and trace metals as well as organic pollutants, were quantified in surface sediments and coral tissues. Additionally, surface water nutrient concentrations, sediment flux rates and biogeographic metrics of ecosystem health were measured. This baseline will be used to help measure the effectiveness of planned watershed restoration activities targeting land-based sources of pollution.

About The Speaker:

Dave Whitall is a senior coastal ecologist with the National Status and Trends Program within the Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment. He has been with NOAA since 2003 and has been studying pollution in coral reef ecosystems since 2005.

Abstract:

In July 2012, the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States (RESTORE) Act was signed into law. The RESTORE Act directs that the Clean Water Act penalties paid by the parties responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill be deposited into a trust fund and authorizes the trust fund to be used to support ecosystem and economic restoration along the Gulf coast and in the Gulf of Mexico. Included within the RESTORE Act is authorization for NOAA, in consultation with others, to administer a "Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Science, Observation, Monitoring, and Technology Program" (aka NOAA RESTORE Act Science Program). Russ Beard (Acting Program Director) will provide an overview of the program - its mission, framework, organizational structure, focus areas, expected duration, and types of activities eligible to be funded. The importance of leveraging and building partnerships and the relationship of the Science Program to the other science and restoration activities in the Gulf of Mexico will also be discussed.

[Canceled] Ecological Forces Shaping Coastal Marine Ecosystems: The Intermittent Upwelling Hypothesis and a Test

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: [Canceled] June 06, 2013; 11:00-12:00 Pacific Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA NWFSC Auditorium (2725 Montlake Blvd. E., Seattle, WA 98112)
Speaker(s): Dr. Bruce Menge, Oregon State University
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NWFSC Monster JAM seminars
Abstract:

The intermittent upwelling hypothesis (IUH) predicts that the strength of ecological subsidies, organismal growth responses, and species interactions will vary unimodally along a gradient of upwelling from persistent downwelling to persistent upwelling, with maximal levels at an intermediate or "intermittent" state of upwelling. To test this model, we employed the comparative-experimental method to investigate these processes at 16-44 wave-exposed rocky intertidal sites in Oregon, California, and New Zealand varying in average upwelling and/or downwelling during spring-summer. As predicted by the IUH, ecological subsidies (phytoplankton abundance, prey recruitment rates), prey responses (barnacle colonization, mussel growth), and species interactions (competition rate, predation rate and effects) were unimodally related to upwelling. On average, unimodal relationships with upwelling magnitude explained ~50% of the variance in the various processes, and unimodal and monotonic positive relationships against an index of intermittency explained ~37% of the variance. Regressions among the ecological subsidies and species interactions were used to infer potential ecological linkages that underpinned these patterns. Abundance of phytoplankton was associated with increases in rates of barnacle colonization, intensity of competition and predation, and with predation effects, and rates of barnacle recruitment were associated with increases in mussel growth, barnacle colonization, and species interactions. Positive effects on interactions were also seen for rates of colonization, competition, predation, and predation effects. Several responses were saturating or exponential, suggestive of threshold effects. These results suggest the IUH has geographic generality, and are also consistent with earlier arguments that bottom-up effects and propagule subsidies are strongly linked to the dynamics of higher trophic levels, or top-down effects, as well as to non-trophic interactions. The ~50% of the variance not explained by upwelling is likely due to more regional to local influences on the processes examined, and future efforts should focus on incorporating such effects into the IUH.

Art as Ecology: Coral Collaborations

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: [time correction] June 06, 2013; 12:00-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-4 Room 10153 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Colleen Flanigan, Living Sea Sculpture-Founding Artist; Director
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOS Science Seminar Series and OCRM's Coral Reef Conservation Program
Abstract:

By running low volt direct current through seawater, limestone minerals in the ocean deposit onto metal, becoming a natural substrate for corals to settle upon and colonize. Any shape or size is possible to create permeable breakwaters, coral habitat, biodiverse ecosystems. In regions devastated by dynamite fishing, reckless development, and other human impacts, we can use art and science together to regenerate reefs. Colleen will share her experience with the Global Coral Reef Alliance's Biorock® mineral accretion method to collaborate with endangered corals, and her vision to highlight this underwater technology through a multimedia interactive exhibit on-land. Data sensors, audio, video, kinetic sculptures and an iron lung will work together to correlate human health with coral health in Respire: The Coral Corollary.

About The Speaker:

Colleen Flanigan relocated from the West Coast to New York this year. She has a BA in Design from UCLA and a post-bacc degree in Metals from the Oregon College of Art and Craft. In 2009 she was selected a TED Fellow for her work with coral restoration and stop-motion animation. TED likes polymaths, and Colleen has been synthesizing materials, processes and concepts through her hands-on tactile approach to creative expression. Natural resources, curiously seeking a sense of balance in action, motivate her current pursuit to help heal and understand dying corals and their ecosystems. While investigating intersections between many disciplines, she seeks new avenues for humans and other species to share the Earth. Over the past few years as a TED Senior Fellow (2010-2012), her ocean work has notably shifted to blur lines between art and science; she's currently seeking collaborations with diverse partners to foster non-traditional unions capable of serving the world.

Watershed and Climate Change Impacts to High Island Fringing Reefs

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 11, 2013, 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): Curt D. Storlazzi, Chief of the USGS Pacific Coral Reef Project, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOS
Abstract:

Anthropogenic modifications to high islands include the introduction of feral ungulates, fires, poor agricultural customs, and other land-use practices that often remove or alter natural land cover. These modifications, in turn, increase the availability of terrestrial sediment for erosion by natural processes and delivery to the coast. This increased loading of terrestrial sediment to the coastal zone can negatively impact coral reef ecosystems by reducing light availability for photosynthesis, smother new recruits and bury existing colonies, and is often the vector for the introduction of nutrients and contaminants to coastal waters. In this talk, I will describe how the US Geological Survey's Coastal and Marine Geology Program is trying to provide a better understanding of the delivery to, residence time in, and advection of terrestrial sediment and associated nutrients and contaminants out of fringing coral reefs. I will also provide insight into how those processes may change under predicted future climate change through empirical observations and numerical modeling.

Tropical Climate Extremes

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 11, 2013, 13:00 - 14:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 12th Floor Fishbowl (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910). Remote attendance is encouraged
Speaker(s): Jae-Kyung Schemm (NOAA Climate Prediction Center); George Halliwell (NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory); Gabe Vecchi (NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory); Yolande Serra (University of Arizona); Chunzai Wang (NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, OAR CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections
Abstract:

Jae-Kyung Schemm -- Dynamic Hurricane Season Prediction with the NCEP CFS CGCM -- Since 1998 the Climate Prediction Center of NOAA has issued Hurricane Season Outlook (HSO) for the North Atlantic and Eastern North Pacific basins. In 2009 a dynamic hurricane season prediction system was introduced to support the HSOs. The dynamic system is based on the T382 version of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System (CFS), which is a fully coupled atmosphere-land-ocean general circulation model (CGCM). The T382 refers to spectral truncation at wave number 382 and it was the horizontal spatial resolution of the NCEP Global Forecast System that was used for daily weather forecasts in 2009. Predictability of tropical storms in the coupled prediction system was assessed based on a series of hindcast runs with the T382 CFS CGCM for the storm season of May through November. The hindcast runs were made for the 1981-2008 period using initial conditions from mid-April for each year in order to evaluate tropical storm statistics in the CFS at the highest possible spatial resolution available in 2008. Tropical storms in the CFS runs were identified and tracked using the tropical storm detection method devised by Carmago and Zebiak (2002). Storms depicted in the CFS had very realistic tracks and robust seasonal cycles in all four basins over the Northern Hemisphere. Comparison of interannual variability in storm activities to the observed indicates that the CFS has a fair level of forecast skill and captures the shift to a more active storm era in the Atlantic basin during the post-1995 period. n introduction to the dynamic prediction system and real time prediction assessment for the 2009-2012 seasons will be presented. Also presented will be the impact of dynamic prediction inputs on the verification of NOAA's Hurricane Season Outlooks.

George Halliwell -- Application of ocean Observing System Simulation Experiments to Improve Hurricane Forecasting -- This presentation will describe the application of a new ocean OSSE system developed at NOAA/AOML and RSMAS, University of Miami to evaluate the impact of new ocean observing systems and alternate observing strategies on improving hurricane intensity forecasts. Hurricane intensity in influenced by the amount of thermal energy available in the upper ocean. For individual storms, the rate of storm-forced SST cooling is slower in regions with large heat content where thick warm layers at the surface make it difficult to entrain colder water from below. This situation maintains larger heat flux from ocean to atmosphere, thus potentially resulting in stronger storms. On longer time scales, interannual differences in the seasonal evolution of the Atlantic warm pool produce significant year-to-year differences in ocean thermal energy available to storms, potentially influencing seasonal predictions of the number and intensity of these storms. Ocean observing systems are critically important to forecasting the ocean response to individual storms, and also to forecasting the seasonal evolution of heat content in storm regions, because they constrain the ocean analysis products used to initialize forecast models. The initial application of the OSSE system has been to determine the impact of targeted rapid-response airborne observations of the upper ocean in the Gulf of Mexico on the accuracy of ocean analysis products used to initialize hurricane forecasts. Work is now commencing to extend the OSSE system to cover the full North Atlantic hurricane region. Planned OSSE studies in this larger region will focus not only on the impact of targeted rapid-response observations for improving individual storm forecasts, but also on the impact of the existing operational ocean observing system and potential enhancements to this system for monitoring and forecasting the upper ocean heat content over seasonal time scales.

Chunzai Wang -- Relationships of Dust Aerosol with the AMO and Atlantic Hurricanes -- Most studies of African dust and North Atlantic climate have been limited to the short time period since the satellite era (1980 onward), precluding the examination of their relationship on longer timescales. Here we use a new dust data set with the record extending back to the 1950s to show that tropical North Atlantic (TNA) dust aerosol, Sahel rainfall, and Atlantic hurricanes vary with the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). When the AMO was in the cold phase from the late 1960s to the early 1990s, the Sahel received less rainfall and the TNA experienced high concentration of dust. The opposite was true when the AMO was in the warm phases before the late 1960s and after the early 1990s. This suggests a novel mechanism for the AMO – a positive feedback between North Atlantic SST, African dust, and Sahel rainfall on multidecadal timescales. That is, a warm (cold) North Atlantic Ocean produces a wet (dry) condition in the Sahel and thus leads to low (high) concentration of dust in the TNA which in turn warms (cools) the North Atlantic Ocean. An implication of this study is that climate models need to be able to simulate this aerosol-related feedback in order to correctly simulate climate in the North Atlantic. Additionally, it is found that dust in the TNA varies inversely with the number of Atlantic hurricanes on multidecadal timescales due to the multidecadal variability of both direct and indirect influences of dust on vertical wind shear in the hurricane main development region.

Yolande Serra -- Dynamically Downscaled HadGEM2-ES Historical Simulations And Future Projections of North American Monsoon And IAS Rainfall - What Are We Learning From Our Regional Model? -- Coarse model investigations of the North American monsoon (NAM) and Intra-Americas Sea (IAS) regions performed as part of this funded project suggest that observable changes in regional precipitation patterns and synoptic wave activity are present in the CMIP5 future climate projections for the RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5 warming scenarios. The second part of this study is now underway to better define the impact of these changes on precipitation at the sub-meso-scales (<100 km) not resolved by the coarse CMIP5 models. This presentation will present results of our downscaled HadGEM2-ES simulations for the 1977-2003 and 2069-2098 time periods using a 35 km domain encompassing the IAS and NAM regions. We will assess the downscaled precipitation fields with respect to observations and coarse model fields. We will additionally present projected changes to the seasonal cycle in precipitation and extreme precipitation events for key regions within our model domain where coarse models predict significant warm season drying and potential regional scale mechanisms responsible for the projected changes.

The status of viral hemorrhagic septicemia in North America; A marine fish health study to determine the prevalence of disease in New Jersey's marine finfish

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: [corrected time] June 11, 2013, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory, Sandy Hook, New Jersey (http://sh.nefsc.noaa.gov/)
Speaker(s): Dr. Jan Lovy, Research Scientist, Fish Pathologist, NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, Office of Fish & Wildlife Health and Forensics
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory
Abstract:

Viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) is an important fish disease that has impacted wild and farmed fish throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Along the Pacific Northwest this virus has been attributed to large fish kills in several marine fish species and over 10 years ago the virus was introduced into the Laurentian Great Lakes causing kills in freshwater fish. An overview and current status of this fish virus in North America will be discussed. In British Columbia VHS virus has been attributed to population declines in Pacific herring and has resulted in large kills in sardines. Previous research that was done at the Pacific Biological Station in British Columbia to understand the biology of VHS virus in Pacific herring and Atlantic salmon will be discussed. Presently VHS virus has not been isolated from New Jersey fish, as determined by our newly developed disease surveillance program in marine finfish. The goal of this marine fish health project is to determine the prevalence and potential impacts of diseases in local marine finfish. A current finding from this project is the discovery of a coccidian parasite infecting the intestinal tract of Atlantic herring sampled off the coast of N.J. Future research will be directed to better understand this parasite and its prevalence in N.J. fish.

Seminar Location: Online Access Only, ACCAP (3352 College Rd, Fairbanks AK)
Speaker(s): Kathy Huntington, Alaska Veterinary Pathology Services (AVPS)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, ACCAP Alaska Climate Webinars
Abstract:

Climate variability and change pose several threats to marine mammals across the Arctic. Potential impacts include alterations in pathogen pathways, effects on body condition due to shifts in the food web, and changes in toxicant exposures. The lack of integrated long-term data on health, diseases, and toxicant effects in Arctic marine mammals severely limits our ability to predict the effects of climate change on marine mammal health. During this presentation, the observed and anticipated impacts to marine mammals to environmental changes will be discussed, including the unusual mortality event that occurred in seals and walrus in northern Alaska in 2011. Data and information for understanding marine mammal health in the Arctic will also be discussed.

About The Speaker:

Dr. Burek is a board-certified veterinary pathologist who worked with AVPS for 15 yrs.

Speaker(s): Curt D. Storlazzi, Chief of the USGS Pacific Coral Reef Project, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOS
Abstract:

Anthropogenic modifications to high islands include the introduction of feral ungulates, fires, poor agricultural customs, and other land-use practices that often remove or alter natural land cover. These modifications, in turn, increase the availability of terrestrial sediment for erosion by natural processes and delivery to the coast. This increased loading of terrestrial sediment to the coastal zone can negatively impact coral reef ecosystems by reducing light availability for photosynthesis, smother new recruits and bury existing colonies, and is often the vector for the introduction of nutrients and contaminants to coastal waters. In this talk, I will describe how the US Geological Survey's Coastal and Marine Geology Program is trying to provide a better understanding of the delivery to, residence time in, and advection of terrestrial sediment and associated nutrients and contaminants out of fringing coral reefs. I will also provide insight into how those processes may change under predicted future climate change through empirical observations and numerical modeling.

Simulations of MJO cases using NICAM with the K-computer

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 11, 2013, 15:00 - 16:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA NCWCP Conference Center (5830 University Research Court, College Park,MD 20740)
Speaker(s): Masaki Satoh, University of Tokyo and JAMSTEC
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, National Centers for Environmental Prediction Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) Seminar
Abstract:

A case sweep simulation of winter MJOs through 2003 - 2012, including the two MJO cases observed in CINDY/DYNAMO, is conducted using a global non-hydrostatic model NICAM (Satoh et al. 2008), powered by the new peta-flops computer "K" (RIKEN AICS, Kobe, Japan). A total of 54 initial dates are objectively chosen for 19 winter (October - March) MJO cases based on Real-time Multivariate MJO index 1 (RMM1) and RMM2 diagrams (Wheeler and Hendon 2004). The average skill limit of the MJO reproduction was measured by bivariate correlations (Lin et al. 2008, Gottschalck et al. 2010). The duration of reproduction skill (the duration that the bivariate correlation between observation/reanalysis and NICAM stays above 0.6) was as long as 27 days. Figure 1 shows OLR Hövmoller diagrams of an MJO case observed intensively in CINDY/DYNAMO field campaign. The NICAM simulation is successful in reproducing the eastward migration of the highly convective envelope throughout the 40 day integration. On the other hand, there were also cases in which NICAM produced relatively poor or no eastward propagation of the MJO. The MJO ensemble dataset allows our studies to proceed beyond case studies and distinguish the essence of the MJO from case-to-case varieties.

Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-2, Room 14316
Speaker(s): Keith Dixon
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NWS Climate Services Seminar Series
Abstract:

Numerical models used to forecast daily weather and those used to make projections for longer-term climate share much in common - after all, "physics is physics". However, the relative importance of different factors associated with the global atmosphere-ocean system varies depending upon the time scale, region, and application of interest, which in turn, leads to there being some important differences in the way weather and climate models are developed. In this talk, we will discuss how global climate models serve as tools used by researchers to investigate and gain a better understanding of the way the global climate system "works". Topics to be covered include the contrast between an initial value problem and a boundary value problem, the role of the three-dimensional ocean circulation in climate, sources of uncertainty associated with multi-decadal climate projections, and how climate models are used to study whether observed climate changes are due to natural variability or are human-induced. Like all models, climate models have their strengths and weaknesses. We will conclude by pondering the question of what measure(s) one might use to assess how "good" a climate model truly is - a more philosophical question than one might think.

Speaker(s): Karen Anspacher-Meyer, Executive Director, Green Fire Productions, La Grande, Oregon
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOAA Fisheries Office of Habitat Conservation, Habitat Protection Division
Abstract:

We will watch the award-winning film, "Ocean Frontiers," and hear from the film's producer on how they have reached 15,000 people in 9 countries, 31 U.S. states, and 2 U.S. territories with these stories of unlikely partnerships to restore fisheries, fishery habitats, and ocean ecosystems. "Ocean Frontiers" takes us on an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country--from the busy shipping lanes of Boston Harbor to a small fishing community in the Pacific Northwest; from America's coral reefs in the Florida Keys to the nation's premier seafood nursery in the Mississippi Delta. Here we meet an intermingling of unlikely allies, of industrial shippers and whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists, sport and commercial fishermen, reef snorkelers and many more, all of them embarking on a new course of cooperation, to sustain the sea and our ocean economies. http://ocean-frontiers.org/the-film/.

About The Speakert:

Karen Anspacher-Meyer is the Executive Director of Green Fire Productions. Formed in 1989, Green Fire produced award-winning films on conservation and sustainability issues. What has she learned over the two plus decades? Solution-oriented stories, told by real, credible people working together to make authentic change, is the most effective way to help audiences learn what has worked for others, and that it could work for them as well.

'Sponge Heaven' and Other Discoveries from Deep-water Explorations in Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 19, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [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): , NCCOS/CCEHBR
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOS Science Seminar Series and NCCOS Center for Coastal Environmental Health and Biomolecular Research (CCEHBR)
Abstract:

Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary off San Francisco encompasses extensive deep-water habitat on the continental shelf and slope where deep-sea corals were suspected to occur. Rittenburg Bank and another rocky bank feature were mapped in 2011 aboard NOAA ship Fulmar and surveyed using a remotely operated vehicle in 2012. The study found diverse and abundant sponges in high relief areas, with many rockfish. One large Antipathes dendrochristos black coral and several Stylaster hydrocorals were also found on the banks. Commercial fishing gear was found discarded on both banks, raising concern for the protection of fragile structure-forming species.

About The Speaker:

Peter Etnoyer is the lead scientist for NOAA's Deep-Sea Coral Ecology Laboratory in Charleston, SC. He received his BA (1988) and MEM (2001) from Duke University, and a PhD (2009) from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Peter got his start working on shallow coral reefs in the Philippines in 1999, and has been exploring deep-sea environments since 2002.

Meta-analysis of exploited marine fish populations using the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 20, 2013, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory, Sandy Hook, New Jersey (http://sh.nefsc.noaa.gov/)
Speaker(s): Olaf Jensen (Rutgers University Institute of Marine & Coastal Sciences)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory
Abstract:

Meta-analysis of stock assessments can provide novel insight into marine population dynamics and the status of fished species. To facilitate global meta-analyses of fish populations and fisheries, we developed a new database, the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database, for commercially exploited marine fishes and invertebrates. Time series of total biomass, spawner biomass, recruits, fishing mortality and catch/landings form the core of the database. The database has been used to test the generality of ideas such as "Fishing Down the Food Web" as well as the impact of management approaches including catch shares.

About The Speakert:

Olaf Jensen is an assistant professor at the Rutgers University Institute of Marine & Coastal Sciences in New Brunswick, NJ. His research focuses on the biological, economic, and social factors that contribute to sustainability of marine and freshwater fisheries. Dr. Jensen has conducted field research on fisheries around the U.S. and has ongoing research projects in Mexico and Mongolia. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2007 from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington in 2010

Marine reserves, an economic approach: using data on behavior to recommend a fine

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 20, 2013; 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library
Speaker(s): Marie L. Fujitani, Knauss Fellow, NMFS Office of Aquaculture
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, 2013 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

Marine reserves can protect resources while sustaining economies dependent on the sea. For reserves to 'succeed' they must alter the behavior of human users, and often a fine is employed. Fine amounts can be arbitrary, and may be too low to be effective or too high to be socially or politically palatable. I use recreational angling trip data from a region in Mexico to model how anglers altered travel choices in response to a marine reserve, and evaluated the 'fine' anglers perceived and responded to. The value (and behavioral change) is small. I then project fines that would reduce trips to the reserve, showing a non-linear increase in fine to discourage an additional unit of travel. These results suggest for this system a process to find a data-driven level of fine that can be both effective and not undesirably high. My talk touches upon work by Nobel Laureate in economics Gary Becker on rational law-breaking.

A Critical Discussion of Critical Habitat Designations: Is Compliance With the National Environmental Policy Act Required?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 20, 2013; 12:30-13:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 2nd Floor Library
Speaker(s): Mele N. Coleman, Sea Grant Knauss Fellow, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Specialist, Office of Program Planning & Integration (PPI)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, 2013 Sea Grant Knauss Fellows Brown Bag Seminar Series
Abstract:

If you are interested in NOAA's efforts to protect species that are listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), you will most likely be interested in learning about Mele's legal research on whether critical habitat designations under the ESA require NEPA compliance. During this brown bag, Mele will discuss her article on the issue, entitled: A Critical Discussion of Critical Habitat Designations: Is Compliance With the National Environmental Policy Act Required? This article was published in Environmental Law (Lewis & Clark Law School) in Fall 2012, and is available online (pdf). In essence, the article tells the stories behind a 27 year-old split between the Ninth and Tenth Circuit Courts of Appeals, argues that critical habitat designations should not require NEPA compliance, and encourages NOAA and FWS to maximize their conservation of endangered and threatened species by jointly developing a consistent national policy on NEPA compliance.

Trends in a system of related fishing ports: resilience, structural breaks, and specialization

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 25, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 12th Floor Large Conference Room 12836 (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910). Remote attendance is encouraged
Speaker(s): Cameron Speir, Economist, NOAA Fisheries Southwest Fisheries Science Center, Fisheries Ecology Division, Santa Cruz, CA
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NOAA Fisheries Office of Science and Technology
Abstract:

Coastal communities that depend on commercial fishing for a significant portion of their economic base and cultural identity are subject to many highly variable influences (e.g, stochastic and cyclical fish stocks, extreme weather events, fluctuating input and output prices). In this paper, we use landings receipts data to examine long-run trends in a related group of commercial fishing ports. We review 30 year trends in fishing activity in central and northern California, discuss the relationships between ports and the role of fishery specialization, and estimate an econometric model to test the degree to which fishing ports are resilient to shocks. Our results so far indicate that patterns of fishing activity in this region have been remarkably stable over the study period. We also discuss concepts of resilience and statistical techniques that can be used to assess resilience from historical data.

Ecosystem Productivity Change

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: June 27, 2013; 11:00-12:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 Room 4817 (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (NOAA Fisheries Senior Scientist for Ecosystems)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Partner(s): OneNOAA Science Seminar, NMFS and NESDIS/NODC
Abstract:

The productivity of marine ecosystems is rapidly changing, with significant implications for many of the goods and services provided by these ecosystems. Evaluating these changes to ecosystem productivity is a critical and continual need for the wise management of living marine resources (LMR). For instance, climate change effects, habitat alterations, trophic interactions, systemic production constraints, forage bases, multiple ocean uses, and similar features are all already cumulatively impacting LMRs. One can readily make the case that to address ecosystem productivity change, an ecosystem-based management (EBM) approach is warranted. Upon examination of key LMR legislative mandates, not only are we allowed to do EBM, but we may actually be compelled to do so. Certainly there could be increased clarity on this compulsion, but a cursory look both within and across major mandates clearly notes the need to address ecosystem considerations. Moreover, the benefits of adopting an ecosystem approach are surprisingly much more than one would expect, and likely outweigh perceived obfuscations of conducting EBM. There are many levels at which one could execute EBM; here these different ecosystem approaches are noted. The levels of EBM are then mapped to the level and type of science and management we need to do. From this mapping, certain tools and methods emerge as more appropriate than others at differing levels for addressing ecosystem productivity change. The application of this mapping needs to be cognizant of the range of management venues that are currently employed and those that are anticipated. The ultimate challenge, and hence focus of contemporary discussions, should be to elucidate how we will pragmatically implement these extant tools and methods to address changes in ecosystem productivity.
