Abstract: Global reservoir information can not only benet local watermanagement but can also improve our understanding of the hydrological cycle.This information includes waterarea, elevation, and storage; evaporation rateand volume values; and other characteristics. However, operational reservoirstorage and evaporation monitoring information is lacking on a global scale.Here we introduce NASA's new MODIS/VIIRS Global Water Reservoir product suitebased on moderate resolution remote sensing data"the Moderate ResolutionImaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and the Visible Infrared Imaging RadiometerSuite (VIIRS). This product consists of 8-day (MxD28C2 and VNP28C2) and monthly(MxD28C3 and VNP28C3) measurements for 164 large reservoirs (MxD stands for theproduct from both Terra (MOD) or Aqua (MYD) satellites). The 8-day productprovides area, elevation, and storage values, which were generated by rstextracting water areas from surface reectance data and then applying the areaestimations to the pre-established Area"Elevation (A"E) relationships. Thesevalues were then further aggregated to monthly, with the evaporation rate andvolume information added. The evaporation rate and volume values werecalculated after the Lake Temperature and Evaporation Model (LTEM) using MODIS/VIIRSland surface temperature product and meteorological data from the Global Land DataAssimilation System (GLDAS). The product was validated comprehensively. Furthermore,preliminary results from the VIIRS reservoir product have shown goodconsistency with the MODIS based product, conrming the continuity of this20-year product suite. This new global water reservoir product suite canprovide valuable information with regard to water-sources-related studies,applications, management, and hydrological modeling and change analysis such asdrought monitoring.

Abstract:
Knowledge of the depth, shape, and composition of the seafloor is necessary to explore, characterize, conserve, and manage our coastal and offshore natural resources. The 2020 National Strategy for Ocean Mapping, Exploring, and Characterizing the United States Exclusive Economic Zone and the global Seabed 2030 initiative make comprehensive ocean mapping a priority for the coming decade. Since 2017, NOAA has been monitoring and analyzing the openly accessible, bathymetric data holdings at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management to compute the areas mapped and unmapped within U.S. waters. This presentation will explore the latest results and demonstrate the utility of the U.S. Bathymetry Gap Analysis to encourage data sharing as well as strategic survey planning in support of the integrated ocean and coastal mapping goal to map once, use many times.

Title: Aerosols and Droplets: Fundamental Particles in our Evolving World

Presenter(s): Akua Asa-Awuku, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Maryland

Sponsor(s): NOAA/OAR Chemical Sciences Laboratory Seminar Series

Seminar Contact(s): caroline.womack@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/269396156616325392

Abstract: Aerosols, or particles, emitted into the air have adverse effects for regional air quality and health. In addition, aerosols significantly impact earth's climate and the hydrological cycle. They can directly reflect the amount of incoming solar radiation into space; by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), they can indirectly impact climate by affecting cloud albedo. Our current assessment of the interactions of aerosols and clouds is uncertain and parameters used to estimate cloud droplet formation in global climate models are not well constrained. Understanding the chemical and thermodynamic properties that control the ability of particles to form droplets, CCN activity, and droplet growth are necessary for constraining impacts on particle transport, particle inhalation, the hydrological cycle and uncertainties from the aerosol indirect effect. In this presentation, we discuss and identify fundamental parameters that affect aerosol formation and droplet growth from unique sources and diverse environments.

Bio(s): Dr. Akua Asa-Awuku is an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. She received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2008. She also earned her M.S in Chemical Engineering at Georgia Tech in 2006. She received her B.S in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2003. In 2008, Dr. Asa-Awuku served as a Camille and Henry Dreyfus Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies and Chemical Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University. She is a recipient of an NSF CAREER Award and EPA-STAR Grants. Dr. Asa-Awuku's primary research interest is understanding and predicting aerosol sources and interactions with water. Her research explores the water-uptake of complex particles as it pertains to aerosol hygroscopicity, cloud condensation nuclei activation and droplet growth.

Abstract:
The increasing intensity, duration, and frequency of heat waves due to human-caused climate change puts historically marginalized populations in a heightened state of precarity, as studies observe that vulnerable communities"especially those within urban areas in the United States"are disproportionately exposed to and affected by extreme heat. However, existing data on weather and climate variables are either too sparse or too coarse geographically to adequately describe risks to public health, infrastructure, and ecosystems at the local scale. This presentation will explore how increasing community engagement in both understanding and measuring urban heat using a novel participatory research campaign framework can lead to climate action efficacy in US cities. We suggest that such scientifically-defensible hyperlocal descriptions of place together with community participation directly serves NOAA's mission while advancing environmental justice, community environmental literacy, and climate resilience more broadly.

Abstract: Twenty years ago, the Arctic was more resilient than now as sea ice was three times thicker than today and provided a buffer against the influence of short-term climate fluctuations. The recent decade has seen an increase in Arctic extreme events in climate and ecosystems including events beyond previous records. Such new extremes include Greenland ice mass loss, sea ice as thin and more mobile, coastal erosion, springtime snow loss, permafrost thaw, wildfires, and bottom to top ecosystem reorganizations .While their numbers increase, the distribution of the type, location, and timing of extreme events are less predictable.

Bio(s): Dr. Overland is a research oceanographer at PMEL leading the research project on Arctic change detection, sea ice dynamics, and large scale Arctic meteorology (phenomena such as the polar vortex, jet stream, and midlatitude weather connections). He's also conducted field research on the ice and from NOAA aircraft.

ABSTRACTAdvances in biologging technology have allowed researchers the ability to quantify the underwater movements and behaviors of marine mammals in novel ways. By incorporating motion sensors with remote, concurrent oceanographic sampling, the ability to contextualize the foraging behavior and performance of marine mammals can now be accomplished. Most recently, the incorporation of video recording capacity into motion-sensing tags has provided the opportunity to link the behaviors of marine mammals to environmental conditions (e.g. sea ice) and the behavior of conspecifics (e.g. group feeding). In this talk, I will show new examples of how these data streams are being used to better understand the habitat use, foraging ecology, and energetics of baleen whales across ocean ecosystems.

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Friedlaender is an associate researcher and adjunct associate professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research focuses on understanding the relationship between the foraging behavior of marine mammals and their prey. He works on a wide range of marine mammal species including baleen and toothed whales across a range of geographic regions. He will be presenting on the use of novel tag technology and analytical and visualization tools to better understand the underwater movements and behaviors of marine mammals.

Abstract: The Mellor"Yamada"Nakanishi"Niino (MYNN) Eddy Diffusivity-Mass Flux (EDMF) planetary boundary layer (PBL) scheme has been used in the operational High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) since 2014. It has been developed primarily to help provide operational short-range convection-allowing forecasts for the contiguous United States (CONUS). This scheme has been selected for inclusion within the set of advanced experimental physical parameterizations in support of the Unified Forecast System (UFS). This expanded scope requires testing the MYNN-EDMF at much longer forecast lead times, at much longer time steps, over more regions of the Earth, and within a new dynamical core. The characterization of model errors specific to the MYNN-EDMF has been accomplished since its implementation into the FV3/CCPP framework, and subsequent development has progressed for improving clouds, solar radiation, and many other sensible weather variables for this expanded application scope. This presentation will overview key features of the MYNN-EDMF and highlight some recent development activities and associated performance examples. Successes and remaining challenges are identified for further research.

Title: Can Oyster Aquaculture Help Restore Coastal Water Quality?

Presenter(s): Dan Rogers, Stonehill College; Tonna-Marie Surgeon Rogers, Waquoit Bay NERR; Vivian Mara, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Sponsor(s): This seminar is sponsored by the NERRS Science Collaborative Seminar Contacts: Doug George (douglas.george@noaa.gov) or Nick Soberal (nsoberal@umich.edu)

Remote Access: Please register through Zoom (https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_vwluxm-MRde5gYvCnqe2Ig)

Abstract: Excess nitrogen in coastal waters can lead to a variety of problems, including algal blooms, fish kills and beach closures, but there aren't easy solutions. In Massachusetts, towns along Cape Cod have been exploring the use of non-traditional methods for meeting nitrogen reduction requirements, such as establishing shellfish aquaculture operations in coastal waters. This webinar will feature a recently completed research project that addressed critical information gaps identified by water quality managers and regulators - specifically the needs to quantify the nitrogen removal rates of commercial shellfish growing practices, and to identify best practices for siting and maintaining aquaculture operations that maximize benefits for water quality. In partnership with the Town of Falmouth, the project team studied the microbial communities and measured nitrogen fluxes in the sediment below three popular systems for growing oysters. They found that all three growing systems increased rates of denitrification and enhanced nitrogen removal, but aquaculture projects need to be carefully sited for best results. To share their findings, the team developed a best practices guide for growers, an eight-part video series to help inform local and regional planning boards, and signs and a demonstration site to help school groups and reserve visitors learn more about shellfish aquaculture.

Abstract: NOAA's mission of science, service, and stewardship enables the Agency to provide timely, reliable, and relevant environmental information to and for the American Society. The OneNOAA Science Seminar Series is a NOAA staff voluntary effort. The overarching objective is to make science-related seminars hosted by all NOAA Line Offices openly accessible to anyone to participate from both within and outside the agency. Within NOAA, the series provides a common one-stop process to pool NOAA seminars in one online location and format. Anyone can participate online in the seminars. However, there are technical limitations on the number of seminar participants; thus, attendance is on a first come, first served basis. Over 50 NOAA seminar coordinators from NOAA Line Offices contribute their seminar listings. Last year we provided access to over 500 seminars. All NOAA Line Offices and their Program Offices nationwide are invited to join this common effort. The seminar listings are also distributed to over 10,500 subscribers nationwide (and international) via a OneNOAA Science Seminar listserv email. The listserv is open to anyone to subscribe/unsubscribe and includes subscribers from U.S. federal/state/local agencies, universities and education institutions, industry, NGOs, and the public. About 85% of the subscribers are from NOAA. The series also hosts special seminar series such as the NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminars. We welcome your input and comments to help us improve the content and value of these seminars. For additional information and questions, please contact Hernan.Garcia@noaa.gov, Tracy.Gill@noaa.gov, or Lori.Brown@noaa.gov.

Accessibility: Closed Captioning will be provided.

Abstract: The Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States spans 24 ecoregions across three oceans and habitats ranging from oceanic coral reefs to glacial bays to deep-sea abyssal plains and vent ecosystems. This expansive territory hosts a similarly great diversity of marine life. Yet there has never been a systematic inventory of US living marine resources. Such information is an essential scientific foundation as the US and other nations embark on an expanded initiative to protect marine life and habitats. The Marine Biodiversity Dialogues project, sponsored by the National Marine Sanctuaries Foundation and Lenfest Ocean Program, is conducting an initial, time-bound gap analysis of existing data to identify:
  1. limits to existing knowledge of marine biodiversity and its distribution across the expansive US EEZ, and
  2. key regions whose biodiversity is not well represented in existing marine protected areas (MPAs).
This webinar will summarize findings of this gap analysis and discuss how the emerging science foundation can inform strategic prioritization for protection of marine habitats and regions in the US EEZ.

Title: The Small Business and Innovation Research (SBIR) Value of Phase III Awards

Sponsor(s): Technology Partnerships Office, Tiffany.House@noaa.gov; NOAA Central Library, library.seminars@noaa.gov

Remote Access: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3526854384993069583

Presenter(s): Tiffany House, NOAA Technology Partnerships Office, Commercialization Specialist

Abstract: The Small Business and Innovation Research (SBIR) program has three phases. Phase I - idea generation, Phase II - prototype development, and Phase III - Commercialization. Phase III is defined as an award that derives from, extends, or completes prior SBIR effort and is funded with non-SBIR funds. The objective of Phase III, where appropriate, is for the small business to pursue commercialization objectives resulting from the Phase I/II R/R&D activities. The SBIR/STTR programs do not fund Phase III. At some Federal agencies, Phase III may involve follow-on non-SBIR/STTR funded R&D or production contracts for products, processes, or services intended for use by the U.S. Government. Attendees at this seminar will gain a complete understanding of what a Phase III award is, how to identify it, what is the acquisition process, and how it can benefit NOAA.

Keywords: SBIR, commercialization, small business

Bio(s): Tiffany House is a Commercialization Specialist who works with the NOAA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program. Tiffany's job is to communicate with small business owners and provide them with the resources they need to develop their innovative technologies for the commercial sector. Tiffany obtained her B.S. degree in Economics from Central State University and her MBA from Trinity University.

Abstract: This seminar will describe the usage and rollout of the Great Lakes Spatial Priorities Study, a study conducted across state governments in the U.S., province governments in Canada, academia, and other institutions to gather information about where different organizations have mapping needs and priorities. This spatial priorities study, in conjunction with the National Ocean Mapping, Exploration, and Characterization (NOMEC) strategy, allowed users to determine which regions of the Great Lakes have the most mapping need so that resources can be allocated efficiently. Other goals include providing a means for participants to reach out to others for coordination and encouraging shared funding opportunities where there is a shared mapping need between organizations. Participants entered their office's mapping priorities in the winter of 2020/2021 with an easy-to-use online geospatial tool developed by NCCOS. These results were analyzed using geospatial and statistical methods to identify areas of greatest mapping need, and areas where there could be increased coordination between offices. By easily identifying areas of shared mapping interest, the Great Lakes spatial priorities study encourages mapping collaboration and shared funding opportunities.

How to use diverse incentives to promote effective and equitable MPA governance: New case studies and practical guidance

Presenter(s): Peter Jones of University College London

Sponsor(s): NOAA National MPA Center and OCTO (MPA News, OpenChannels, EBM Tools Network)

Seminar contact: zac.cannizzo@noaa.gov

Remote Access: Register for webinar at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/5703333252590846224

Abstract: MPA governance is the modification of human behavior (e.g., fishing, tourism, coastal development activities) through an appropriate combination of incentives " including economic, legal, participation, communication, and knowledge incentives. Previous research on MPA governance case studies has developed and explored the hypothesis that the use of diverse incentives is critical to developing MPA governance that is both effective (i.e., they achieve conservation objectives and are not paper parks) and equitable (i.e., local customs and traditional ways of life are conserved, participation of local people is provided for, the costs and benefits of conservation are fairly shared). This webinar presents 28 new case studies (including a case study of the emerging policy framework for MPAs beyond national jurisdiction) to test this hypothesis and develop practical guidance for MPA managers and policy practitioners on how to combine a diversity of governance incentives to promote effectiveness and equity. Our research found that while many MPAs already employ a diversity of incentives, many of the incentives needed to be strengthened and others needed to be introduced.

Abstract: The subaqueous Mississippi River Delta Front is an area of dynamic (> 1 m/year depth change) and heterogeneous morphologic change. Here, we use machine learning algorithms trained and validated on repeat multibeam bathymetric surveys to geospatially predict depth change where it is not directly measured. We demonstrate here that depth change can be robustly estimated on the MRDF using as little as 1% of a full-coverage bathymetric survey, offering a valuable monitoring alternative to expensive and time-consuming full-coverage repeat mapping.

Bio(s): Jeff Obelcz is a marine geologist at the US Naval Research Lab at the Stennis Space Center, MS. His research primarily focuses on quantifying submarine slope instability at a range of temporal and spatial scales. His methodology includes marine geological and geophysical analysis (seafloor mapping, geological sampling) as well as machine learning for predicting seabed instability where it is not yet measured.

Abstract: NOAA's mission of science, service, and stewardship enables the Agency to provide timely, reliable, and relevant environmental information to and for the American Society. The OneNOAA Science Seminar Series is a NOAA staff voluntary effort. The overarching objective is to make science-related seminars hosted by all NOAA Line Offices openly accessible to anyone to participate from both within and outside the agency. Within NOAA, the series provides a common one-stop process to pool NOAA seminars in one online location and format. Anyone can participate online in the seminars. However, there are technical limitations on the number of seminar participants; thus, attendance is on a first come, first served basis. Over 50 NOAA seminar coordinators from NOAA Line Offices contribute their seminar listings. Last year we provided access to over 500 seminars. All NOAA Line Offices and their Program Offices nationwide are invited to join this common effort. The seminar listings are also distributed to over 10,500 subscribers nationwide (and international) via a OneNOAA Science Seminar listserv email. The listserv is open to anyone to subscribe/unsubscribe and includes subscribers from U.S. federal/state/local agencies, universities and education institutions, industry, NGOs, and the public. About 85% of the subscribers are from NOAA. The series also hosts special seminar series such as the NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminars. We welcome your input and comments to help us improve the content and value of these seminars. For additional information and questions, please contact Hernan.Garcia@noaa.gov, Tracy.Gill@noaa.gov, or Lori.Brown@noaa.gov.

Accessibility: Closed Captioning will be provided.

Slides: Slides will be shared with those who register and if requested.

Recordings: Recordings will be shared with those who register and if requested.

Abstract: The Atlantic menhaden fishery is the largest, by volume, on the Atlantic Coast of the United States, and Atlantic menhaden are an important forage species for predators such as striped bass and bluefish. Driven by the competing interests for this stock, the last assessment process included both single and multi-species models, which allowed for addressing multiple management objectives and for development of ecological reference points.

Keywords: Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management, Multispecies Assessment, Menhaden

Bio(s): Dr. Amy Schueller is a Research Fish Biologist at the Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Beaufort, NC. She is the lead analyst for the Atlantic menhaden and Gulf menhaden stock assessments. Her research interests include stock assessment methods, ecosystem reference points and management, and forage fish dynamics.
