  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. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Improved Spawning, Fertilization, Rearing, and Grow-out Methodologies for the Culture of the Sablefish

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Metabolism and physiology research on the sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) conducted in Phase I of this research established that this fish is highly suited to culture conditions typically found in the Pugent Sound or Straight of Juan de Fuca waterways of the state of Washington. In this research, we will examine techniques to improve spawning of captive brood fish, increase fertilization success, ...

  5. Induction and Utilization of Tetraploidy in Atlantic Salmon as a Reliable Method for Producing Sterile Autotriploid Stock

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 8117

    The use of sterile, triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) has been suggested by many to be a means of mitigating the perceived genetic impacts of escaped animals on their wild counterparts. The US Atlantic salmon industry has been slow to adopt this technology, apparently due to reduced performance under stress of conventionally made (de novo) triploids. We propose to develop techniques to prod ...

  6. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  7. Metabolic and Physiological Response to Sablefish (Anaplopoma fimbria) to Variable Environmental Conditions

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Sablefish (black cod) is a promising species for marine aquaculture in Washington State because of strong demand, high prices, ease of culture from juvenile stage on, availability of large areas for commercial grow out and interest from commercial, tribal and fisheries cooperatives. But the physiological ecology of sablefish is only partially known, which hampers commercialization and the ability ...

  8. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...
