  1. Development of a Portable 3-dimensional Variational (3DVAR) Data Assimilation Module for NOAA Operational Forecasting Systems

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 814

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose to continue the development of a generalized 3DVAR data assimilation module, in an open-source and non-proprietary programming language, which is compatible with FVCOM and incorporated into the Lake Erie Operational Forecast System (LEOFS). We will leverage our experience and expertise in using 3DVAR for a ROMS-based real-time forecast system for the California coast ...

  2. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  3. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  4. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  5. Development of the Low-Altitude Maritime SurveySampling (LAMSS) System

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 828

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Aerovel, Inc., proposes to fully develop a prototype Low-Altitude Maritime SurveySampling (LAMSS) System using the technologies identified and knowledge gained during our Phase I effort. The proposed innovation will deliver the necessary capabilities for electro-optical an ...

  6. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: During Phase I, Metron designed and implemented an efficient, scalable, end-to-end prototype system for collecting, storing, and viewing mariner weather observations: the Mariner Report App (MARApp). The MARApp Client is a mobile application that transforms smartphones and tablets at sea into forward geospatial/environmental sensors. It can take weather measurements from sensor ...

  7. Automated HCl laser monitor for long term and flight deployments

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Tropospheric oxidation capacity is dominated by HOx photochemistry, however halogen atoms and oxides significantly affect these chemical cycles. A sensitive and robust measurement of gaseous HCl is critically important to improve our understanding of halogen chemistry and its impacts on the spatial and temporal oxidation capacity of the atmosphere. In Phase I, we met all of our ...

  8. Automated peak fitting and analysis software for advanced gas chromatography and mass spectrometer systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Recent advances in gas chromatographic (GC) and mass spectrometric (MS) techniques for atmospheric measurements have led to highly complex data sets that have overwhelmed the capabilities of current data analysis software. We propose a new method for the automated reduction of chromatographic data using peak-fitting algorithms. By relying upon constrained peak-fit parameterizat ...

  9. Development of Native Kelp Culture System Technologies to Support Sea Vegetable Aquaculture in New England Coastal Waters

    SBC: Ocean Approved, LLC            Topic: 817

    This Phase II research expands Phase I research on Saccharina latissima and is to design and develop “seed” nursery methodologies for the development of commercial-scale production of juvenile kelp plants including Alaria esculenta and Laminaria digitata. The project objectives include: 1. Isolate and maintain cultures of New England species of Alaria esculenta and laminaria digitata to be use ...

  10. Development of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to assess the feasibility of developing an innovative tool that allows forecasters to easily provide real-time threat tracking information to be used by the public to confirm the existence and location of a weather- or water-related hazards in a m ...
