Bioeffects assessment in Kvichak and Nushagak Bays, Alaska.

S. Ian Hartwell, Dennis A. Apeti, Anthony S. Pait, Tod Radenbaugh & Ron Britton
A baseline environmental characterization of the northern reaches of Bristol Bay, Alaska was conducted using the sediment quality triad approach (sediment chemistry, sediment toxicity, and benthic invertebrate community structure), along with measures of contaminant body burdens and the characterization of parasites and disease in starry flounder (Platichthys stellatus, Pallas, 1788) and rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax, Mitchill, 1814). The study area was subdivided into 6 strata based on geophysical and hydrodynamic patterns (the upper and lower...

North Carolina Sentinel Site Cooperative : report on the 2017 partners meeting, NOAA Auditorium, Beaufort, NC February 21, 2017.

Sarah Spiegler, Rich Bandy, Carolyn Anne Currin, Jennifer Dorton, Rebecca Ellin, Paula Farnell, John Fear, Elise Gilchrist, , Nathan Hall, Whitney Jenkins, Tancred Miller, Brandon Puckett, Justin Ridge &
The North Carolina Sentinel Site Cooperative (NCSSC) was established in 2012 as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) effort to provide coastal communities and resource managers with information on the potential impacts of sea level rise on coastal habitats. The NCSSC utilizes a collaborative business model to bring together stakeholders, including data producers and end users, through a Core Management Team (CMT) and advisory committee. The goal of the Cooperative is to...

Cruise report, NOAA Ship Hiʹialakai, Cruise HA-16-06, Leg 3, 29 August-30 September 2016, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands: French Frigate Shoals, Pearl and Hermes Atoll, Kure Atoll and Lisianski Island.

Personnel from the Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) and Scientific Operations Division of the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, University of Hawai 'i at Manoa (UHM), Scripps Oceanographic Institution (SIO), and San Diego State University (SDSU) conducted interdisciplinary surveys of benthos, fishes, and oceanographic parameters related to climate change in coastal waters across the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands as part of the National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan (NCRMP). All activities described in this report were...

Update to the tidal data in VDatum for eastern Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Kurt W. Hess, & Inseong Jeong
The tidal component of VDatum for east Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina has been updated to include tidal datum values derived from the most recent water level observations. Also, additional coastline detail has been introduced to allow the incorporation of all tide stations in the region, including many in the uppermost portions of rivers and streams that were not previously in VDatum. Other improvements include modified non-tidal areas and the use of the EEZ for...

Comparison of finite differencing, time smoothing and spline fitting algorithms for estimating airspeed metadata from coarse-resolution aircraft position and wind reports

Robert James Purser & Yanqui Zhu
As operational data assimilation procedures become more sophisticated and the need to address and allow for biases and non-Gaussianity in the given data becomes more pressing, we find we need to augment our knowledge about the details concerning the data to include not just the assimilated data values themselves, but also the “metadata” that describe the differing conditions under which the assimilated measurements are made. In the case of aircraft measurements of temperature such relevant...

An integrated environmental assessment of the St. Thomas East End Reserves (STEER)

The St. Thomas East End Reserves, or STEER, is a collection of Marine Reserves and Wildlife Sanctuaries (MRWS) located on the southeastern end of the island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. With an area of approximately 9.6 km2 , the STEER contains extensive mangroves and seagrass beds, along with coral reefs, lagoons and cays. Within the surrounding watershed are numerous marinas and hotels/resorts, a landfill serving both St. Thomas and St. John, an EPA...

Defining and documenting marine debris interactions with wildlife.

& Wayne E. McFee
Over the past several decades, the input of anthropogenic litter into the marine system has been an increasing global concern, with negative ecological and environmental consequences. Plastics, abandoned fishing gear and other debris can have serious effects on marine animals, via entanglement and ingestion. Wildlife stranding and response networks have been established since the 1980s throughout the United States in an effort to identify and gain insight to the dynamics of marine animal populations. Many...

Fishes and invertebrates in Gulf of Alaska bays and islands : results from inshore ecosystem surveys in 2011 and 2013.

Olav Aleksander Ormseth, Kimberly Marie Rand &
This report provides a comprehensive summary of the inshore ecosystem surveys conducted during 2011 and 2013 as part of the Gulf of Alaska's (GOA) Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (IERP). The GOAIERP was a large interdisciplinary project with the goal to understand how the GOA environment influences the early survival of juvenile fishes. An essential element of this program was synoptic surveying of inshore and offshore areas in different years and seasons. The work described here...

Evaluations of turtle excluder devices (TEDs) with reduced bar spacing in the inshore penaid shrimp fishery of the northern Gulf of Mexico

, Dan Foster & Lee Saxon
Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) have been required in the southeastern United States penaeid shrimp trawl fishery since 1989 to reduce the mortality of sea turtles associated with shrimp trawling. TEDs are metal sorting grids placed in the trawl forward of the codend. Larger animals, such as sea turtles, are directed to an escape opening in the trawl, while smaller ones, including shrimp, pass through the grid bars and into the codend. Federal TED requirements set...
