NSU Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography have big showings at recent international science conferences.


The DEEPEND (Deep Pelagic Nekton Dynamics of the Gulf of Mexico) project, a consortium of 15 institutions headed by Dr. Tracey Sutton (DoMES), had a tremendous showing at the recent Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science (GoMOSES) Conference  in New Orleans, February 5-10.  DEEPEND contributed 31 talks and posters, including presentations by NSU graduate students (Lindsay Freed, Richard Hartland, Nina Pruzinsky, and Matt Woodstock), postdocs (Andrea Bernard, Cole Easson, and Rosanna Milligan), and Faculty/Staff (April Cook, Kim Finnegan, Matt Johnston, Joe Lopez, Tammy Frank, Mahmood Shivji, and Tracey Sutton). Dr. Sutton chaired the GoMOSES session “Recovery from the Bottom Up: Rates, Processes and Connectivity in the Deep Gulf of Mexico.” NSU students Mike Novotny, Nina Pruzinsky, and Matt Woodstock kindly served as session volunteers during the meeting. Following GoMOSES, DEEPEND had an additional 10 presentations at the 2017 AGU/ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, HI. NSU presenting authors included April Cook, Tammy Frank, Matt Johnston, Joe Lopez, Rosanna Milligan, Mahmood Shivji. and Tracey Sutton. Drs. Milligan and Sutton chaired the ASLO session “Vertical Connectivity of the Pelagic Ocean: Understanding the Function and Services of Intermediate Trophic Levels.” In between these two meetings, Dr. Sutton co-authored a presentation at the American Association for the Advancement of Science 2017 Annual Meeting in Boston entitled “Ecological Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon and IXTOC-I Marine Blowouts.”

DEEPEND: NRL-HYCOM Gulf of Mexico Real Time Results

(select images to see forecasts)


 

Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico HYCOM model in its present configuration is a physical-only simulation running in near real-time covering the entire Gulf of Mexico at 1/50° resolution. The physical model is being coupled to the Carbon Silicate Nitrogen Ecosystem (COSiNE) model --ETA end of 2015. Output (figures) includes previous hindcasts, up to date nowcasts and 144hr forecasts.

 

 

Cruise Region

The results here are close-ups interpolated from the 1/50° GOM simulation. These results include cruise tracks, sampling locations, time-series analysis, and other relevant cruise related information.

We had a great turn out of 23 teachers at TAMU Galveston for the third Gulf of Mexico Exploration teacher workshop! Teachers learned about DEEPEND science and brought lesson plans and other resources back to their schools to share with colleagues and their students.

Thank you, Texas for a great event!
