Fresh Water: It's for the Fish...and The People! Considering Ecosystem Services in Restoration, Impact Assessment and Monitoring

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 10, 2013; 11:00-12:00 Pacific Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NWFSC Auditorium (2725 Montlake Blvd. E., Seattle, WA 98112)
Speaker(s): (Stanford University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NWFSC Monster JAM seminars
Abstract:

Freshwater systems are one of the few places where managers have been forced to think about both nature and people for a long time. I will provide three examples of recent work using ecosystem service information in fresh water management decisions to reflect multiple objectives and deal with difficult tradeoffs. First, we have created a multi-objective maximization approach and associated software tool (RIOS) for targeting watershed restoration and management investments for cost-effective returns in freshwater services. This approach is being used in investment decisions in 40 watersheds across Latin America. Testing with simple models (InVEST) suggested that our targeted approach could yield up to 6-fold better erosion control returns than traditional investments. Future applications include retargeting agricultural subsidies in the Mississippi Basin to maximize agricultural yields, water quality and marine ecosystem service production in the Gulf of Mexico. Second, we have expanded traditional mitigation concepts to include impact assessment and mitigation requirements for ecosystem services. With a new concept called 'servicesheds', we can identify who will lose ecosystem services as a consequence of proposed development, and whether mitigation can return the same services to the same people. This equity-based approach would counter current limitations of mitigation programs such as those under the US Clean Water Act. Applications to date include coal mine permit assessment in Colombia and a proposed road through the Peruvian Amazon. In the future we plan to include freshwater services such as temperature regulation and fisheries and marine services such as coastal protection and nursery habitat. Finally, in these contexts and many others, monitoring is essential for policy assessment and understanding of system dynamics. I will present a new framework for monitoring ecosystem services and highlight its application for a global biodiversity observation network, GEO BON. Major limitations exist for observing marine ecosystem services and I will highlight opportunities for collaboration and expansion of this work

Socio-economic Vulnerability of African Americans to Hurricanes in the Gulf Coast of the United States

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 15, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-4 Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): (Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Management, Jacksonville State University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar
Abstract:

The U.S. States bordering the Gulf of Mexico have been historically devastated by hurricanes and tropical storms. According to the U.S. Census, a high percentage of African American population lives in these southern Gulf States. Evidence exists that African Americans in this region have been and continue to be disproportionately devastated by the impacts of Hurricane Katrina. In particular, poor and underserved communities bore the brunt of this devastation which has led to further injustice through economical and health related destruction. Disproportionate hurricane impact on certain communities implies that addressing the factors influencing this proportionality can contribute to reducing the devastation of future hurricanes. This study identifies and visualizes socio-economic vulnerability of the African American population at the county level living in the hurricane risk areas of the Gulf States using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and further recommends approaches to utilize these GIS data to plan relief efforts, redevelop communities and build resiliency in areas vulnerable to hurricanes.

Introduction to Geospatial ISO Metadata, an Online Training Series

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Every Tuesday beginning January 15 until March 5, 2013 from 10:30-11:30 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Remote online access only
Speaker(s): (National Coastal Data Development Center)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NODC National Coastal Data Development Center
Abstract:

With declining budgets and travel limitations, it is challenging for data managers to keep up-to-date on the latest metadata standards and tools. In response, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC) is offering Introduction to Geospatial ISO Metadata, a free, online training series beginning in January 2013.

NCDDC set out to meet the increased needs of data managers as many organizations transition from FGDC to ISO standards. Working with other metadata trainers within the community, the NCDDC Metadata Team has developed a complete package of training materials for the transition to ISO metadata standards. Conducting this training online is an innovative way to meet the increased demand for this training while controlling travel expenses. NCDDC conducted two prior metadata training series online in which over 1500 participants from 18 countries on five continents took part. The success of these efforts has led to the continuation and expansion of the training with two series of Introduction to Geospatial ISO Metadata and two series of Transitioning from FGDC to ISO Metadata already planned for 2013.

Registration is now open for the next series which will be held every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m-10:30 a.m. CST from January 15 until March 5, 2013. The series will start with an introduction to metadata, and cover topics such as XML basics, tools, and data discovery. All materials will be made available online, and instructors will be available by request for special one-on-one "My Metadata" sessions to answer specific questions for individual participants.

Deep Sea Corals in the World's Largest Underwater Canyons: Will New Data Lead to New Conservation Measures in the Bering Sea?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 15, 2013, 12:00 - 13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-3 2nd Floor (1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD, 20910)
Speaker(s): John Hocevar (Oceans Campaign Director, Greenpeace)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Library
Abstract:

Two of the largest underwater canyons in the world, Zhemchug and Pribilof, cut into the edge of the continental shelf in the southeastern Bering Sea. Data are presented showing the distribution of corals and sponges in these spectacular canyons, from submarine research undertaken in 2007 and 2012. High densities of corals were documented, and associations with rockfish demonstrated the corals' importance as fish habitat. Evidence of damage from fishing activities was observed in these remote canyons. Bottom trawling and other benthic fishing gear has been shown to damage corals and sponges that may be very slow to recover from such disturbance. Establishment of conservation zones is a cost effective means to protect benthic habitats in these canyons and the ecosystem services they provide.

Webinar: Mapping and Visualizing Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 15, 2013, 13:00 - 14:00h Eastern Time Zone (times may vary) [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Webinar/Conference Call Access Only
Speaker(s): Doug Marcy, NOAA Coastal Services Center; hosted and moderated by the Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) Tools Network
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Digital Coast Coastal Services Center
Abstract:

It is one thing to have a discussion or write about a one- or two-foot rise in the ocean surface and the potential impacts to a local community, and it is another to show someone a map, highlighting the areas that will potentially be impacted. The ability to visualize the potential height and inland extent of water gives us a better understanding of the corresponding impacts and consequences. Over the past several years, the lessons learned from investigating pilot sea level change mapping applications have led to the development of a next-generation sea level rise and coastal flooding viewer. This presentation will provide a brief history of previous sea level change visualization pilots and a detailed discussion of new methods, featuring a demonstration of the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer.

In this webinar participants will learn about

  • The benefits of providing interactive maps online for visualizing inundation risks and potential impact
  • New mapping techniques that incorporate high-resolution data sources
  • The methods used to develop the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer, its current status, and plans for expanding the tool to the rest of the coastal U.S.

Long-term Ozone Trends at Rural Ozone Monitoring Sites Across the United States, 1990-2010

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 16, 2013, 15:30 - 16:30 Mountain Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division seminar Room 2A305, David Skaggs Research Center (NOAA Building), 325 Broadway, Boulder, CO (Directions)
Speaker(s): Owen R. Cooper, NOAA ESRL CSD / CU CIRES
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA ESRL CSD
Abstract:

This analysis provides an up-to-date assessment of long term (1990-2010) rural ozone trends using all available data in the western and eastern USA. Rather than focus solely on average ozone values or violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard, the study considers the full range of ozone values, reporting trends for the 5th, 50th and 95th ozone percentiles. Domestic ozone precursor emissions decreased strongly during the study period. In response, and in agreement with many recent modeling studies, rural ozone has decreased across much of the eastern US, especially at the 95th percentile and during summer. Modeling studies also conclude that decreasing domestic ozone precursor emissions in the western US should also result in ozone decreases. However, ozone decreases in the rural western US are limited, with most sites showing steady ozone levels or increasing ozone, especially in spring. This dichotomy in US ozone trends will be discussed in terms of changing anthropogenic and biomass burning emissions. Consideration will be given to the concept that increasing baseline ozone flowing into the western US is counteracting ozone reductions due to domestic emission reductions. An update to the springtime free tropospheric ozone trend above western North America shows that ozone has increased significantly from 1995-2011 at the rate of 0.41 0.27 ppbv yr-1. Finally, the ozone changes will be examined in relation to regional temperature trends.

Abstract:

The Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) is close to upgrading its system with a hybrid-ensemble analysis. Initially this effort has followed the pathway taken by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) in adding to its three-dimensional variational (3d-Var) analysis a 3d ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF). The EnKF provides an ensemble of analyses used to generate an ensemble of backgrounds for the hybrid Grid-point Statistical Interpolation (GSI) analysis. Two steps link the EnKF with GSI: re-centering of the ensemble members around the GSI analysis; and addition of inflating errors to the re-centered ensemble analyses to mimic the effect of model error. At first GMAO avoided this latter step given it is theoretically difficult to justify it. Under re-centering only, we quickly found there was no clear benefit from the hybrid approach; with additive inflation, the hybrid strategy surely brought in the expected improvements. The key role played by these additive perturbations, created from 48-minus-24 hour forecast differences, led us to consider a situation where an ensemble of analyses is generated by simply adding these perturbations to the central analysis. This presentation compares this alternative to the original implementation. The proposed scheme leads to computational savings and avoids need to maintain two analysis systems.

Forecasting Blooms of Cyanobacteria in Lake Erie

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 16, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ SSMC-4 Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Tim Wynne (NOS/NCCOS)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NOS Science Seminar Series and National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS)
Abstract:

Since 2008 the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Sciences has issued short-term (< 1 week) forecasts for cyanobacterial blooms in Lake Erie. The forecasts are put out on a weekly basis during the bloom season (June 1 - October 31), and have proven to be successful in delineating bloom area and forecasting bloom dispersion. These forecasts go out to approximately 500 subscribers, which are primarily part of the public health, water management, and research communities. Building on the success of the short-term forecasts NCCOS researchers assembled ten years of ocean color climatological data. A statistical model was developed in an effort to predict seasonal abundance of peak cyanobacteria biomass prior to bloom development. The first long-term seasonal forecast was issued on July 5, 2012. Come hear how the prediction was made, how accurate it was (or wasn't), and how the forecast was preliminary validated. Basic ecology and satellite ocean color techniques will be discussed.

About The Speaker:

Tim has been at NOAA for nearly 11 years studying phytoplankton assemblages from satellite ocean color imagery, with an emphasis on Harmful Algal Bloom detection and dynamics. He has a B.S. from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Marine Science, an M.S. in oceanography from Old Dominion University, and Tim is currently enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Maryland.

Speaker(s): (National Marine Mammal Laboratory, Alaska Fishery Science Center)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Fisheries Office of Science and Technology
Abstract:

The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML) is based at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. Dr. Tom Gelatt leads the Alaska Ecosystems Program at NMML which is responsible for NMFS research focused on the recovery of Steller sea lions and northern fur seals. Despite Alaskan populations in excess of 100,000 for each of these species, persistent localized population declines have led to increased management and research needs and questions. Tom will provide a general overview of some of the field and analytical tools his group uses to address these questions and some of the information they have learned. The combination of long term data sets and modern satellite telemetry and veterinary techniques now allows investigations that were previously inaccessible. In addition, collecting field data over an area that spans over 60 degrees of longitude has required the development of some unique field techniques.

Speaker(s): Sebastian Belle, Executive Director, Maine Aquaculture Association
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NMFS Office of Aquaculture
Abstract:

With wild-catch fisheries around the world operating at maximum sustainable harvest, a global population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, and increasing consumption of seafood in Asia, aquaculture is widely seen as the source of most growth in the seafood production sector. Already, aquaculture provides 50 percent of the seafood eaten worldwide. The United States imports roughly 91 percent of its seafood, half of which are products of aquaculture.

These and a number of other fundamental resource trends have large implications for world food supply and prices. While aquaculture often is suggested as one way to meet the challenge, sustainable aquaculture development in the United States remains elusive.

Join Sebastion Belle, Executive Director of the Maine Aquaculture Association, for a discussion of aquaculture's role in sustainably addressing emerging issues in U.S. and global seafood supply, with some suggested solutions put forward in the context of a case study based on current experiences in Maine.

About The Speaker:

Sebastian Belle began his career as a commercial fisherman, working his way through university as a mate on offshore lobster boats. Currently Mr. Belle is the Executive Director of the Maine Aquaculture Association (MAA), a private non-profit association representing Maine shellfish and finfish growers. Prior to joining the Maine Aquaculture Association, Mr. Belle was the state aquaculture coordinator, working for the Maine Department of Marine Resources. In addition to his role as MAA Executive Director, Mr. Belle is president of Econ-Aqua, and a founding partner of TAAG. Econ-Aqua is consulting firm specializing in the farm management, financial due diligence and risk analysis and control. TAAG is an international consulting and investment firm specializing in aquaculture projects. Prior to founding TAAG, Mr. Belle was project manager of the Bluefin Tuna Project at the New England Aquarium in Boston. Before joining the aquarium, Mr. Belle was operations manager for Connors Aquaculture Inc. in Eastport, Maine, one of the largest Atlantic salmon farms in the United States. Mr. Belle holds degrees in fisheries biology and agricultural economics. Mr. Belle served as a technical consultant on over 20 major commercial aquaculture ventures for investment groups from Europe and North and South America. Before returning to North America in 1989, Mr. Belle spent four years managing a commercial scale aquaculture research and development foundation in Norway.

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 17, 2013, 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: Remote Access Only
Speaker(s): Galen A. McKinley, Ph.D. (Associate Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Madison)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA Ohio Sea Grant
Abstract:

The ecosystems of the Great Lakes are critical national resources, yet their large-scale functioning and interactions with climate change are poorly explained. How do physical drivers impact chemistry and ecology? How are invasive species reacting to physical change? How will the Great Lakes respond to increasing atmospheric CO2? Numerical models and data help us to answer these questions, and to identify future research priorities. This webinar will provide information about biogeochemistry, carbon cycling and invasive species in Lakes Superior and Michigan, impacts of physical change on carbon cycling and invasive species, and prospects for acidification of the Great Lakes due to CO2 uptake from the atmosphere.

Anout The Speaker:

Galen A. McKinley is Associate Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at University of Wisconsin - Madison and a Faculty Affiliate of the Center for Climatic Research of the UW Madison's Nelson Institute. She uses numerical models and data to study how physical and biogeochemical processes influence carbon cycling and its temporal variability in the oceans and the Great Lakes.

Local Adaptation and Thermal Tolerance in Adult Migrating Fraser River Sockeye Salmon Populations

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 17, 2013; 11:00-12:00 Pacific Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NWFSC Auditorium (2725 Montlake Blvd. E., Seattle, WA 98112)
Speaker(s): (University of British Columbia and University of Sydney)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NWFSC Monster JAM seminars
Abstract:

Every year, millions of sockeye salmon return to the Fraser River (BC, Canada) to perform their once-in-a-lifetime upriver spawning migration. There are over 100 geographically and genetically distinct populations within the Fraser River watershed, each of which experiences unique upriver migration conditions varying in migration distance (100-1,100 km), elevation gain (10-1,200 m), river temperature (9-22 C) and river flow (2,000-10,000 m33 s-1). Climate change-induced increases in summer river temperature have been associated with exceptionally high mortality in migrating salmon, raising conservation concerns. This research examined thermal tolerance and local adaptation across sockeye salmon populations over several levels of biological organization, from whole animal swimming and cardiorespiratory performance, organ performance, gross organ morphology, ultrastructure and receptors. Fraser River sockeye salmon populations appear to have physiologically adapted to their local upriver migration environment. In addition, some populations may be more susceptible to continued river warming, which has clear conservation concerns for biodiversity.

About The Speaker:

Throughout the last decade, I have conducted research at 7 different institutions in 6 countries (Canada, Australia, England, Norway, Puerto Rico, Fiji), studying topics as diverse as bark beetle communication, coral reef conservation and sexual behavior in monkeys before concentrating on fish physiology. My current research interests focus on understanding the underlying physiological mechanisms of ecological phenomena and conservation problems. Specifically, I've been studying temperature tolerance and local adaptation using adult migrating Fraser River sockeye salmon as a model. BSc - Simon Fraser University, 1998-2003.

River Plume Enhanced Primary Production: Examined from Fast Repetition Rate Fluorometry and Ocean color Remote Sensing

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 17, 2013, 10:00-11:30 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NCWCP, Conference Center, 5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD 20740
Speaker(s): Ramon Lopez-Rosado - Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA STAR
Abstract:

Primary production in eastern Caribbean waters influenced by the Orinoco River was investigated using fast repetition rate fluorometry (FRRF) and ocean color remote sensing. FRRF based productivity estimates significantly correlated with independent estimates based on the 14C uptake method (r = 0.92, n= 9). Satellite based estimates of primary production using the Carbon Based Productivity Method (CbPM) varied accordingly with in situ FRRF based measurements and responded to the gradients created by the river plume (r = 0.58, n=72). These estimates were within the range of previously published observations with highest rates associated with waters under the influence of the river plume, CbPM 631 mg C m-2 d-1 and FRRF 570 mg C m-2 d-1. A time-series of satellite-derived estimates (2002-2011) revealed seasonal variations associated with river discharge and climate driven fluctuations. Regional integrated productivity of about 2.84 Tg C y -1 was calculated based on average spatial coverage of the Orinoco River plume over the last decade.

Anout The Speaker:

Dr. Lopez-Rosado is a postdoctoral researcher with the Space Department of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. He started his career at the University of Puerto Rico studying ecology and later biological oceanography. Dr. Lopez-Rosado research interests look into the biogeochemical and physical processes interacting in coastal waters influenced by river plumes. In particular, the effect of river plumes on the primary production of eastern Caribbean oceanic surface waters, estimated using in situ biophysical models and remote sensing. Recently, his research also has involved the use of ocean color remote sensing to estimate global river plumes dissolve organic carbon transports.

Ocean Surface Gravity Waves and Climate Modeling

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 22, 2013, 12:00-13:00h 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): Yalin Fan (GFDL)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
Abstract:

Climate modeling, to a great extent, is based on simulating air-sea interactions. However, the small-scale interactions and related phenomena, such as the ocean waves are sub-grid processes, and cannot be simulated by climate models. Thus, Global circulation models(GCMs) usually parameterize the air-sea fluxes based on wind speed only, while as we all know that the air-sea fluxes are closely coupled with the sea state in the ocean. Furthermore, Stokes drift from ocean waves can create Langmuir circulations. Many Large Eddy Simulation studies have found that the maximum entrainment flux can be increases by a factor of two to five by Langmuir turbulence. There are also studies indicate that the interaction of stokes drift and Coriolis force has an appreciable influence on the Ekman transport at the high latitudes, which could affect the dynamic height and hence large circulation patterns in the ocean model.

Motivated by all these research questions, we have developed a fully coupled atmosphere-wave-ocean model at GFDL. NCEP's WAVEWATCH III is used for this coupling. The wave climatology generated by this couple model was extensively evaluated against NDBC buoy observations, satellite measurements, and ERA-40 reanalysis and shown very good agreements in terms of magnitude, spatial distribution, and climate variabilities. A new momentum roughness (zo) parameterization as a function of both the wind speed and the sea state is implemented based on recent field observations, which is similar to Beljaar (1994) that was commonly used in GCMs when the wind speed is less than 20 m/s, but becomes significantly lower as the wind speed increases (Fan et al. 2012). The new zo has shown improvements in surface wind simulations for the 1990 control run following Delworth et al (2006). Two different Langmuir turbulence parameterizations are also implemented in the coupled model and evaluated using the 1990 control run. Preliminary results have shown that the ocean stratification should be taken into account for Langmuir turbulence parameterizations in GCMs.

Impacts of Assimilating Dense Pressure Observations Using an Ensemble Kalman Filter

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 23, 2013, 14:00-15:00 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): Luke Madaus (University of Washington)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
Abstract:

This talk will discuss experiments examining the practicality and impact of assimilating dense surface pressure (or altimeter setting) observations using an ensemble Kalman filter. Fewer representativeness problems and strong covariances between surface pressure and the deep atmosphere make surface pressure attractive for trying to capture mesoscale weather phenomena given a dense observing network. Numerous surface pressure or altimeter setting observations are readily available on a regular basis from supplementary observing networks--such as the Cooperative Weather Observer Program and the Weather Underground network--at a much higher density than the current ASOS/METAR network. The quantity and quality of these observations will be discussed, with a description of innovative bias correction procedures applied to these observations including the use of pressure tendency assimilation. The assimilation of these additional bias-corrected.pressure observations is shown to reduce the errors in the analyzed model state and makes adjustments that strongly project onto the prevailing surface pressure pattern. A brief look at the changes in the subsequent forecasts from these new analyzed states will also be given.

[Seminar Canceled] Is Sea Level Rise Accelerating? Somewhere a Hockey Stick

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: Canceled January 29, 2013; 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA HQ, SSMC-4, Room 8150 (1305 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): , Virginia Institute of Marine Science
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA The NOS Science Seminar Series and CO-OPS, the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services
Abstract:

Along parts of the U.S.-Canadian Atlantic coast, acceleration of sea level rise may be occurring through dynamic adjustments from a possible slow-down in the meridional overturning circulation (MOC). A linear-quadratic regression model applied to seasonally-adjusted monthly mean sea level (mmsl) observations at U.S. and Canadian east coast tide stations offers positive evidence of recent acceleration after using an empirical technique, serial trend analysis, to find periods when acceleration is constant or approximately so. Applied to long-term data at eight tide stations from Norfolk, VA, to Halifax, Nova Scotia, the technique identified a pronounced linear rate increase (constant acceleration) common to all eight stations beginning in median year 1987 and continuing through median year 1994 using serial trends derived from fixed length (36 year) series. A similar analysis at four tide stations from Charleston, SC, to Key West, FL, showed neither acceleration nor deceleration. Guided by this information, linear-quadratic regression was applied at 23 U.S. and Canadian Atlantic coast tide stations with complete or near-complete mmsl records from 1969-2011. Analysis of variance F-tests subsequently found the quadratic term contribution to be significant at one station (Kiptopeke, VA) at the 95 percent level of confidence and 15 additional stations from Sewells Point, VA to Halifax, NS at the 99 percent level of confidence. Quadratic contribution to regression was non-significant at St. John's, NL as well as at five tide stations from Wilmington, NC to Key West, FL.

About The Speaker:

Dr. Boon is a professor emeritus at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) and School of Marine Science, College of William and Mary. He is the author of a book on tides, storm tides and sea level trends and is presently pursuing research on regional sea level rise at 'Hot Spots' on the U.S. East Coast. For the past five years he has served as a consultant for the NOAA CO-OPS Ocean Systems Test and Evaluation Program and is the developer of the VIMS Tidewatch system for extratidal water level forecasts in lower Chesapeake Bay (www.vims.edu/tidewatch).

Simulation of a Convective Cloud from a Lagrangian Cloud Model, and Its Application to the Parameterization of Cloud Microphysics

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Date and Time: January 29, 2013, 12:00-13:00h Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Location: NOAA NCWCP Room 2155 (5830 University Research Court College Park, MD 20740)
Speaker(s): Yigh Noh (Yonsei University)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA NCEP/EMC
Abstract:

A Lagrangian cloud model (LCM), in which the flow field is simulated by LES, and the droplets are treated as Lagrangian particles responding to the simulated flow field, is applied to simulate a precipitating convective cloud. The LCM is based on the concept of an ensemble of super-droplets with each super-droplet representing a large number of real droplets of a given size. A statistical method is used to calculate the collision/coalescence of droplets. It is shown that the model is capable of reproducing the general features of the cloud and precipitation process, including the evolutions of mixing ratio, relative humidity, vertical velocity, dissipation rate, droplet spectrum, and the initiation of precipitation. The LCM is then applied to study the impact of turbulent collision/coalescence on the precipitation process, revealing that precipitation starts earlier and becomes stronger, if the effect of turbulence is included in the collection kernel. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that the LCM provides various information on the motion of droplets, which plays a crucial role in the parameterization of cloud microphysics, such as the vertical velocity of droplets, the raindrop size distribution, and the precipitation flux. Besides, two other topics from the lecturer's previous works for NWP are briefly introduced; the parameterization of PBL and the production of SST from satellite data assimilation to a NWP-ocean mixed layer coupled model.
