Applications of operational oceanography product to fisheries management and operation

Speaker: 
Dr. Hiromichi Igarashi

Affiliation: 
JAMSTEC, Yokohama, Japan

Seminar Date: 
3. December 2018 - 12:30 - 13:10

Operational oceanography products, reanalysis, NRT analysis and forecast ocean state, can provide us a variety of value-added information useful for fishery stock management, monitoring and efficient fishery operation. In this talk, applications of the operational products to the operational fisheries in the North Pacific conducted by JAMSTEC data synthesis research group will be presented.

A Nested-Grid Snow Modeling System

Speaker: 
Dr. Glen E. Liston

Affiliation: 
Colorado State University

Seminar Date: 
14. November 2018 - 11:00 - 12:45

Over the last 35 years, Dr. Liston has developed a snow-evolution modeling system (MicroMet, SnowModel, and SnowAssim) that can be used for a wide range of snow and other cold-season, cold-region applications. The model formulation is general enough to allow simulations over temporal domains spanning days to decades, and spatial domains spanning from local measurement sites to pan-Arctic regions at spatial resolutions ranging from 1-m to 10-km.

CIMR: the Passive Microwave Satellite Mission for Copernicus.

Speaker: 
Thomas Lavergne,

Affiliation: 
MET Norway

Seminar Date: 
31. October 2018 - 12:30 - 13:10

EU is currently planning the future of its fleet of Earth Observation missions: the Sentinels. To serve the EU integrated Arctic policy from 2025, several candidate missions are under study. One of the candidate, the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) is an advanced Passive Microwave Radiometer mission, improving on the now 40 years capability of SMMR, SSM/I(S), and AMSRs. The two primary objectives of CIMR are all-weather, high-resolution, high-accuracy, sub-daily observations of sea-ice concentration (SIC), and sea-surface temperature (SST).

Crossing the Southern Ocean: How the parameterization of poleward heat transport may differ from that of the real world

Speaker: 
Matthew Hecht

Affiliation: 
LANL, USA

Seminar Date: 
22. October 2018 - 12:30 - 13:10

As the only major ocean basin that allows for circumpolar flow, with no continental boundaries against which zonal pressure gradients may be established, the Southern Ocean has been singled out as a region in which transient mesoscale eddies are especially important. When effects of bathymetry on the flow are considered, however, transient eddies alone need not generate the entire poleward heat transport that compensates the equatorward heat transport forced by the prevailing westerly winds.
