  1. 8.1.6N: Enhanced Electrochemical Detection of Toxins in Water, Shellfish and Fish Samples

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Toxins found in water, shellfish and fish threaten human health and result in significant economic losses. This is particularly true of the toxins produced by harmful algal blooms which are becoming more frequent. Consequently, there is a need for rapid, easy to use and inexpensive detection methodologies which allow resource managers, public health officials, aquaculturists, and commercial and re ...

  2. 8.1.7N: Robust HF Radar Tsunami Detection Software Development

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Although predicted 32 years ago, actual observations of the unique tsunami signature expected in HF radar data has only recently been confirmed for the first time with the March 2011 Japanese event. This was observed by several radars, both in Japan and on the U.S. West Coast. First-generation detection software based on highly idealized assumptions and simulations had been developed and offered c ...

  4. 8.2.1R: Zero-Reaction Manipulator-Handled Submersible Drill Rig

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    A recurring request from principal investigators using human occupied (HOV) and remotely operated (ROV) submersible vehicles is the ability to take a number of short core samples from rock outcrops. These cores would then be subjected to a number of analyses. Currently awarded projects researching drowned fossil coral reefs would benefit by taking core samples for dating and related analyses to ...

  5. 8.2.2R: High-Sensitivity/High-Precision Measurements of Calcium Concentrates in Seawater

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    The decrease in seawater pH (ocean acidification) caused by absorption of anthropogenic atmospheric CO2 leads to a reduction in the aragonite saturation state (ΩAR). Studies indicate that calcifying marine organisms respond to reduced ΩAR with decreased calcification rates. In particular, calcification rates in reef-building corals may have slowed by 10% over the last 150 years, with predicti ...

  7. 8.2.4F: Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Video and Image recording systems are increasingly being used by NMFS for a multitude of applications. Underwater systems are deployed on or near the seafloor or towed above the seafloor to record images of fish that are later analyzed to estimate numbers, sizes, and species composition in an area. Underwater systems are also installed in trawls to collect images that can be used to determine numb ...

    The NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) conducts annual spring and autumn bottom trawl surveys from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina into Canadian waters. The surveys are a stratified random design where the trawl locations are selected a priori and based on stratification and allocation of effort. Approximately 360-400 bottom trawl hauls are done during each survey. During a survey, th ...
