  1. A Web-based, Interactive, Long-range Hydrologic Forecast Tool for the Western U.S.

    SBC: 3Tier Environmental Forecast Group, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Water resource managers must translate uncertain information about the future into operational decisions that can have large public safety, economic and ecological impacts. Seasonal forecasts of climate and hydrology can be an important tool in assisting managers in their decision making process. However, studies evaluating the utility of seasonal forecasts have repeatedly identified the lack of ...

  2. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    People who work in the marine sciences field often need to analyze the transmission of sound through the ocean. Today, there are more than 60 different propagation loss models available; no single model is the best in all cases. Choosing the appropriate model, as well as the necessary input data to the model can be a daunting task. In this proposal, we discuss an approach to designing a compute ...

  3. All Weather Temperature and Water Vapor Profiling Radiometer for Marine Environments

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 835

    The detailed design and development of an operational radiometer for regular use in sounding temperature and humidity in the marine boundary layer on NDBC buoys is proposed. The design follows that a well demonstrated unit pioneered by the PI and Co-Is that has been used successfully in the field on ships, aircraft, and ground based sites. It relies on full (360 degree) scanning of the sky above ...

  4. Improving Radio Occulation Technologies Through Next-Generation GPS Receiver Design

    SBC: Broad Reach Engineering            Topic: 828

    The weather research community is utilizing a proven RO technique for climate modeling and numerical weather prediction; however, the current space hardware does not provide the optimum science data. This proposal will focus on proposed enhancements to the Integrated GPS Occulation Receiver (IGORTM) L1/L2 GPS flight receivers. Improvement in real time Navigation Solution from

  5. A miniature aerosol nephelometer for deployment in dropsondes or UAVs

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 822

    Two, complementary techniques are proposed that are deployable on dropsondes or mobile measurement platforms and measure the scattering coefficient of atmosphere aerosols. The Phase I activity will be a proof of concept study that evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two measurement systems and combines a detailed analysis of the optical and electronic systems with a laboratory ...

  6. A Miniatruized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year. To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered. As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to develop an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use. The technical innovation will be to develop a reversible ...

  7. Nanotechnology Systems to Prevent Disease and Improve Healing of Aquatic Animals

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 8111

    Netting, tagging, and/or vaccination of shrimp or fish often result in increased stress and infections caused by opportunistic pathogens. Damaged epidermis or cuticle provides a portal of entry to potentially deadly infective agents that bind preferentially to injured cells. Recent advances in nanotechnology and computer-assisted scanning instrumentation now make it possible to quantify progress ...

  8. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  9. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    Water managers are increasingly recognizing climate change as a significant issue and are requesting detailed information about potential hydrologic impacts suitable for inclusion in planning. Available studies, however, are most often academic in nature and have the added limitation of being incompatible with agency specific water management models or the streamflow period of interest. Commissi ...

  10. A Novel CO2 Sensor for Closed Circuit Mixed Gas Rebreathers

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 819S

    A new, solid-state, carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor for use with closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers is proposed. This novel, polymer composite sensor will be small, low power, and low cost. This sensor will be incorporated with closed circuit rebreathers, allowing the NOAA Advanced Diving Program to perform longer, deeper dives. The use of closed circuit rebreathers provide many advantages over d ...
