Transcript of SCCOOS Vision

Climate Variability & Change
SCCOOS Vision: 2017 & Beyond

National Marine Sanctuaries &
Marine Protected Areas

Ecosystems, Fisheries, & Water Quality


EOS Newsletter
Target Success Stories &
End-to-End Capabilities
e.g. Glider records, Refugio Oil Spill, Hyperion Outfall Diversion/ECOHAB results
the next big thing to help the marine mammal management community

-funding opportunities??

shipping lanes and other mammal protection issues
- opportunity to provide habitat mapping data to help with ship redirection etc?
work with TMA, MX, et al.

Marine Operations
move towards being our own Axiom by using iPython Jupyterab
& Communication


>SoCal ENSO index
>Sea Level Trends
> Closely track climatologies & anomalies of obs
>Model-Obs matchups
"Seascape" concept
(now being used by the MBONs too)

provide synthetic products to State agencies to assess the change in vulnerabilities over time
Fostering IOOS + NMFS
(& DFW) Connections
more outreach to foster local relationships - SWFSC

HF Radar
Seek out opportunities to create more "synthetic" WQ products, e.g. OCSD collab /w/ G. Robertson & mariculture/(offshore) aquaculture sites like Catalina Sea Ranch, as well as
models to complement HAB models
Visiting Scientist
"CeNCOOS Fellow"
e.g. are certain beaches more susceptible during low-frequency events like ENSO?
SCCOOS Spray Gliders
Integrated into Marine Operations
whenever possible
CDIP wave products are our gateway to supporting marine operations
Seek industry partnerships to ensure that data management through CDIP and SCCOOS is continued and strengthened
And work with OST to enhance
fisheries science toolbox
SCCOOS/CDIP can play a role in quantifying variability in beach morphology, relevant to a variety of
coastal interests

Work with CA Sea Grant Citizen Science Beach Profile Monitoring project to help capture high energy events; leverage student projects to record damage to residential or commercial areas
Not trying to re-create scenario predictions like Atlantis Ecosystem Model. Goal is to attempt to display regional outlooks from physics to fish (with dream funding, of course). Would also ideally include coastal hypoxia and inundation models to reflect flooding risk and other coastal hazards (in line with initial COMT goals)
SCCOOS Front Page
ENSO, Warm Anomaly, Drought, HABs
SCCOOS is uniquely positioned to provide timely information & synthetic products on physical hazards
Funding/Partners: NOAA & IOOS, SCCWRP, OCSD... seek out EPA, OPC, NWS
Opportunity to broaden scope of WQ monitoring in SoCal by ingesting data into SCCOOS website with rigorous QC. Could lead to real-time app or management alert system

Dan Rudnick's gliders are an indispensible asset. Easily accessible synoptic imagery would accelerate public use during emergencies
Flood and Storm Surge Models
Leverage Partnerships

seek out opportunities to
include land-sea interface and improve models at coastal boundary (relevant to WQ too)
CA State Water Resources Control Board
Opportunity to investigate bottom up to top down effects in governing
MPA efficacy using ecosystem model approaches
e.g. CORDC currently discussing if any role to play in creating current maps for Port of San Diego - SCCOOS involved in helping to create downscaled or customized products
"State of California Current" Summaries
End-to-End Prediction

OSPR is a fundamental deliverable for any ocean observing system. HFR, glider, and ocean model assets are essential for maintaining this capability
HF Radar
Improve usability of the CODAR dataset

Is there an opportunity to revitalize local
mobile apps for circulation products?

Data quality and archiving are on-going challenges that are already being addressed by IOOS/CeNCOOS et al.
Operational ROMS is critical, but how will WCOFS implementation for the West Coast
affect continued support for regional downscaled models?

Emphasis on SCCOOS/CeNCO collaboration to aid the State in a CA-wide response
SCCOOS in good position to set up temporary website to fill in the gaps for first responders

Coastal Data Information Program (1975- present)
Blue Economy-Oceanology
Maintained by the CDIP at SIO
US Army Corps of Engineers is a major sponsor
589 tankers entered the Ports of Los Angeles and Long beach in 2012, 592 in 2013, 606 in 2014, and 632 in 2015
1 degree of pitch on a 1,100-foot tanker is a 9.6-foot increase in draft
a tanker with an even-keel draft of 65 feet increases draft to 74.6 feet under, leaving only 1.4 feet of water under the keel
Highly successful project that illustrates a direct link between SCCOOS/CDIP products that benefit the public in obvious ways by providing valuable wave & current data for precision navigation

We should highlight and replicate these success stories
How do we bring about a comparable collaborative effort with Maritime Alliance as we have seen with other success stories like the Under Keel Clearance Project?
IOOS supports observations that are ingested into highly accurate models that aid the transit of larger tankers/container ships to the Port of Long Beach

>Collaboration and synergy with CDIP is a SCCOOS legacy and one that is mutually beneficial
>We can & do strongly leverage our shared goals at state and federal level
Strong IOOS presence & involvement during Blue Tech Week - will continue to network in this capacity
SCCOOS Spray Gliders
Huge potential to be at the forefront of next generation end-to-end capabilities with submesoscale ocean-atmos coupled model hindcasts & reanalyses -- for a wide array of applications: seasonal forecasting, low-frequency events, long-term projections (e.g. IPCC RCPs)
Legacy = SCCOOS partnership with CDIP
In the spirit of CalCOFI summary reports, building off successes of three RA-hosted Anomaly Workshops
subsurface temp & salinity records
O2 TBD -- but will be HUGE (and classy)
Daniel Swain's Weather West Blog
Moorings and
Shore Stations
summary interpretations to illustrate changing conditions
Improve interoperability of shore station data (joint SCCOOS/CeNCOOS effort)
Better integrate NERRS and nearshore programs like Santa Monica Bay Restoration
Catalina Sea Ranch collaborations - data ingestion!
Partner with new investigators to explore novel sensors and instrumentation -- SCCOOS will soon be in a better position to contribute full-time DMAC support
Models as tools to assess ecosystem challenges to fisheries resources - context for future regulation
NMFS probably won't move away from SA approach, BUT could better communicate utility of model products, e.g. reanalysis products
Moorings and
Shore Stations
SCCOOS Spray Gliders
biogeochemistry -- O2 and pH sensors
data assimilation into models
rich data set to explore ecosystem function

Opportunities to collaborate with UCLA & SCCWRP on Bight-focused monitoring & modeling efforts, seek funds from NOAA OAP

Harmful Algal Blooms
Data Portal
Many new opportunites to capitalize on momentum from State agencies and OST to harness forecasting capabilities in wake of the Dungeness crab crisis
C-HARM is currently crossing the R2O valley of death, but what other projects could SCCOOS steward? End-to-end models with McWilliams/Bianchi group & SCCWRP, e.g. ECOHAB proposal pending
In queue for operations at NOS/NWS - strong ties to WCOFS and NOAA's Ecological Forecasting Roadmap -- will strengthen CA's role in ecoforecasting at NOAA
"Bridge to Fisheries" - develop continuum of nearshore to offshore observations and capabilities e.g. shore stations to gliders to shipboard process studies to
wave gliders
--- fill in the Blue Ocean gap between PacIOOS & CeNCOOS
OA, Ecosystem Science, Water Quality
Fisheries Management
Is there an opportunity to create specific products that require geospatial habitat data for a range of organisms? e.g. tie into EcoCast, lead PI is at SD State, ingest CalCOFI icthyplankton data
Connect to OST/OPC, identified need for better access/sharing of geospatial data (CalGIS). Connet to MPA and Fishery Needs - e.g. critical nearshore nursery habitats that are bottlenecks for many species
Seek out opportunities to include land-sea interface and improve models at coastal boundary: diversions, HABs, pathogens, other WQ issues
Exciting avenues to get carbonate system into ecosystem models for OA predictions - emphasize marine sensors in
data assimilation component
Fisheries Management

OA, Ecosystems, Water Quality
California Harmful Algae Risk Mapping (C-HARM) System
(transferring project from UCSC to UCSD to remain lead PI)
OAH Task Force
- outcomes will inform future sensor and modeling proposals; collaborate with CeNCOOS to tackle OAH
*Partner with the
SBC -Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON)
to provide DMAC support, e.g. NOI to NASA U.S. GEO funding opportunity this week
Lleverage the quality control back end at SCCOOS to create a robust system for water quality and OA parameters and improve data access, quality, synthetic products, and visualization
