NOAA Environmental Modeling System Regression Test Suite, system evaluation and requirements for a new system

Samuel Trahan
The NOAA Environmental Modeling System (NEMS) is a collection of numerical models of various aspects of the environment, coupled together via the NUOPC coupler. This creates a complex combination of source codes wherein a change to one model could break other models in unpredictable ways. For this reason, the NEMS Regression Tests (RT) were created. They compile the NEMS in various ways, and test the models in pre-specified scenarios. This suite is automated so that...

Optimization of a neural network-based biological model for chlorophyll-a concentration in the upper ocean

Vladimir Krasnopolsky, Sudhir Nadiga, Avichal Mehra, Eric Bayler & Hae-Cheol Kim Kim
Integrating/assimilating satellite ocean color (OC) fields (chlorophyll - a, Kd 490, Kd PAR) in NOAA's operational ocean models requires scientifically consistent and robust techniques to obtain long (several years long) time series of OC fields. In addition, in order to dynamically take into account the OC signal in ocean and coupled climate models, a biological model for components of OC is required. In this work, we introduce one possible approach based on a Neural Network...

Gulf Of Mexico Regional Action Plan to implement the NOAA Fisheries Climate Science Strategy

Heidi B. Lovett, Sunny B. Snider, Karla K. Gore & Roldan C. Muñoz
Warming ocean temperatures, sea level rise, and ocean and coastal acidification are thought to be key climate change drivers that result in biological impacts in the Gulf of Mexico. Understanding how major climate drivers such as these affect marine and coastal habitat distribution and quality, ecosystems and estuarine productivity, and living marine resources and their prey is critical for wise management. These changes could lead to direct and indirect effects on marine resource-dependent businesses and...

Living marine resources of the Chukchi Sea : a resource report for the Chukchi Sea oil and gas lease sale number 85

Byron F. Morris
The Bureau of Land Management of the Department of the Interior is proposing oil and gas lease sale 85 in the northeastern Chukchi Sea. This sale is currently scheduled for February 1985. The area from which tracts will be identified for leasing is located between 68°30' N. and 71° N. latitude and is bounded on the east by the Federal/State 3-mile geographical boundary and on the west by the U.S. - U.S.S.R. 1867 convention line...

The Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) acquires and distributes the scientific information necessary to fulfill the mission of the National Marine Fisheries Service, which supports responsible stewardship of the Nation’s living marine resources and their habitats (NOAA Fisheries Mission), and collaborates with the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) to do so. The enabling legislation for the NOAA Fisheries mission is found in the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Act (MSA), the Marine Mammal Protection Act...

Chemical contaminants in corals (Pocillopora damicornis) in Tinian, CNMI.

David R. Whitall, Andrew L. Mason, Steven Johnson, Ryan Okano & John Iguel
This document presents environmental data collected in August 2013 consisting of coral tissue (Pocillopora damicornis) contaminants and surface water nutrients offshore from Tinian in the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The study area is in and around the Tinian Marine Reserve on the southwest corner of the island. Despite being a marine protected area, there is very little information on pollution stressors to this protected ecosystem. These new data provide a survey of the...

Vessel trip reports catch-area reporting errors: potential impacts on the monitoring and management of the northeast United States groundfish resource

Michael C. Palmer

Marine debris removal and assessment in the northwestern Hawaiian Islands, 2015.

Since 1996, NOAA Fisheries and multiple agency in the northwestern Hawaiian Islands partners have conducted surveys and removal of marine debris in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands on a nearly annual basis. In the past 19 years, nearly 837 metric tons (1.8 million pounds) of debris-primarily derelict fishing gear-have been removed from the shallow reefs and shorelines.

Mapping data report. Cruise EX0801, Mapping shake down 2008, September 8 -26, 2008 Seattle, WA – Seattle, WA

Mashkoor Malik
The main objectives for the mapping shakedown cruise included: 1. Conduct Sea Acceptance Test (SAT) for acceptance of multibeam sonar. 2. Test and validate the correct installation of the mapping and ancillary sensors. 3. Test and validate the data acquisition capabilities. 3.Test and establish a detailed data management system including data processing pipelines. 5. Identify any shortcomings in the suite of hardware and software that are key to the success of the EX mission.

A review of potential approaches for managing marine fisheries in a changing climate.

Wendy E. Morrison & Valerie Termini
Climate variability and change may affect marine fisheries by altering: ecosystem functions, fish abundance and productivity, species and fishery distributions, fish phenology, interactions with non-target species and bycatch rates and levels, and habitat use and/or availability (e.g., shifting nursery grounds). Because managers may not be aware of the many approaches available to respond to or plan for environmental change, we conducted a literature review and compiled a list of options. In general, management approaches can...
