Coastal ecosystem assessment of Chesapeake Bay Watersheds land use patterns and river conditions.

, R. Trippe, Lonnie Gonsalves, & Gretchen A. Messick
In coastal and estuarine regions, land use can have a profound impact on aquatic ecosystem health. In the Chesapeake Bay watershed, agriculture and urbanization have transformed major portions of the landscape, though some areas of undeveloped land remain. This document assesses the health of six Bay tributaries with different land use profiles via a suite of water quality and biological condition variables. Linkages are then explored between these scored variables and land use in the...

An economic analysis of shipping costs related to potential measures to manage the co-occurrence of maritime vessel traffic and whales in the Channel Islands region.

Sarah Gonyo, Theresa L. Goedeke, , Matthew Poti, Dan S. Dorfman &
This report provides findings from an analysis and evaluation of the economic effects of potential measures to manage the co-occurrence of shipping traffic and whales in the Channel Islands region off the coast of California. These potential management measures are part of one of two different approaches developed by members of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CINMS) Advisory Council Marine Shipping Working Group (MSWG) one technology-based and the other spatial-management-based (Figure 0.11 ). Both...

Sets of optimally diversified polyhedral orientations

Robert James Purser
Efficient integration of global atmospheric models on massively parallel computers is driving the move towards the use of discretizations based on regular polyhedra, such as the cube or icosahedron, and away from the traditional grids based on latitude and longitude alignments. In the case of NCEP's new proposed operational global model, the FV3, it is the equiangular modification of the gnomonic cubed-sphere grid that is being adopted. One risk of using any polyhedral grid is...

Pacific Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program. Benthic REA monitoring summary : southern Mariana Islands, 2017.

This summary provides an overview of the most recent survey efforts conducted in the southern Mariana Islands in 2017 by the Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) of the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center as part of the Pacific Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (Pacific RAMP). A more detailed assessment of coral populations, reef community structure, and the potential impacts of the 2014–2015 bleaching events for Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands will...

Catch and bycatch in U.S. Southeast gillnet fisheries, 2016

Alyssa N. Mathers, Bethany M. Deacy & John K. Carlson
The Southeast Gillnet Observer Program has adapted to the changes of the Florida-Georgia shark gillnet fishery since the program began in 1993 (e.g. Carlson and Bethea 2007 and references therein, Mathers et al. 2015). There are currently about 500 total directed and incidental shark permits issued for the southeastern U.S. Atlantic coast and Gulf of Mexico, while the number of gillnet fishers changes from year to year. Gillnet effort targeting large coastal (LCS) and small...

61st Northeast Regional Stock Assessment Workshop (61st SAW) assessment report

This assessment is for Atlantic surfclam in the US EEZ (federal waters, 3-200 nm from shore) individual transferable quota (ITQ) fishery (Appendix 7). The assessment divides the US stock into a northern (Georges Bank or GBK) and a southern area (south of GBK to Cape Hatteras) for modeling purposes (Figures 6 and 7). However, the resource is managed as a single stock so estimates for the north and south are combined for status determination.

Regression tree and ratio estimates of marine mammal, sea turtle, and seabird bycatch in the California drift gillnet fishery, 1990-2015

James V. Carretta, Jeffrey E. Moor & Karin A. Forney
Marine mammal, sea turtle, and seabird bycatch was estimated for the California swordfish drift gillnet fishery during a 26-year period (1990-2015), using random forest regression trees. Tree estimates were compared with traditional annual ratio estimates generated from the same observer data. Ratio estimates suffer from systematic bias (under- and overestimation of bycatch) when observed bycatch is rare, bycatch rates are inferred only from same-year data, and observer coverage is low. Model-based approaches result in more...
