WIND-4D

On the 4-D Consistency of Satellite Wind Products for Regional NWP Data Assimilation
Period: from 2019 to 2022
Funding: EUMETSAT
Coordinator: M. Portabella, Oceanografia Física i Tecnològica
Contact e-mail: portabellaaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

The resolution of regional numerical weather prediction (NWP) models has continuously been increased over the past decades, in part, thanks to the improved computational capabilities. At such small scales, the fast weather evolution is driven by wind rather than by temperature and pressure. Over the ocean, where global NWP models are not able to resolve wind scales below 150 km, regional models provide wind dynamics and variance equivalent to 25 km or lower. However, although this variance is realistic, it often results in spurious circulation (e.g., moist convection systems), thus misleading weather forecasts and interpretation. An accurate and consistent initialization of the evolution of the 3-dimensional (3-D) wind structure is therefore essential in regional weather analysis. The research fellow would focus on a comprehensive characterization of the spatial scales and measurement errors for the different operational space-borne wind products currently used and/or planned to be used in regional models. In addition, the fellow would thoroughly investigate and improve the 4-D (including time) consistency between the different horizontal and/or vertical satellite wind products under study. Such products include OSI SAF scatterometer-derived sea-surface wind fields, NWC SAF Atmospheric Motion Vectors (AMVs), the upcoming ADM-Aeolus and/or IASI wind profiles. Densely sampled aircraft wind profiles (Mode-S) will be used to verify and characterize the satellite products. To this end, the experience of the NWC, OSI, and NWP SAFs will be exploited. Moreover, data assimilation experiments of the consistent datasets into the Harmonie-AROME regional model will be carried out in two different regions, i.e., the Netherlands and the Iberian Peninsula regional configurations.

Funding: Comisión europea
Coordinator: Katrin Huhn (MARUM – Uni Bremen)
IP ICM: R. Urgeles, Geosciències Marines
Contact e-mail: urgelesaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

The over-arching aim of the European Training Network SLATE is (i) to understand key factors triggering submarine landslides, the subsequent motion and evolution of failed material, as well as ensuing geohazards eg tsunamis; and (ii) to integrate an innovative broad range of scientific disciplines and private sector needs into a novel training-through-research and co-supervision of 15 ESRs. SLATE focus on investigating submarine landslides and associated geohazards as important natural risks that threaten offshore infrastructures and coastal regions in Europe. Submarine landslides can be far larger than any terrestrial landslide and can produce tsunami whose far reaching effects can rival those produced by earthquake-tsunamis, and which threaten increasingly populated European coastlines. Even small landslides can damage very expensive and critically important seafloor installations. For example, pipelines used for oil and gas recovery, or telecommunication cables that now carry over 95% of global data. The largest and most dangerous submarine landslides occur on low gradients of < 2° that are almost always stable on land. However, fundamental differences between slope failure on land and the seafloor are as yet poorly understood and remain a grand challenge.

Contact e-mail: portabellaaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission can be considered a success story from many points of view. On the technological side, the instrument has proved to be very stable and robust, providing high-quality measurements, despite the processing complexity. On the scientific side, the SMOS data have exceeded all expectations. In particular, maps of the main mission variables (soil moisture and sea surface salinity) are currently served with higher accuracy and resolution than foreseen. Moreover, new emerging applications of high societal impact are currently being derived and exploited from SMOS data. By understanding the value and uniqueness of the L-band radiometry information content, ESA and NASA have recently launched several initiatives on the continuity of passive low-frequency microwave missions. While the possibility of a SMOS follow-on is being openly discussed, a gap-filler, i.e., the Chinese Ocean Salinity mission, has already been approved to be launched around 2019. One of the most important emerging applications of L-band radiometers comes from their ability to provide sea ice thickness estimates below 0.7 meters, i.e., thin ice. Although thin ice was considered exceptional (and seasonal) a few decades ago, nowadays the presence of thin ice can represent up to 80% of the Arctic sea ice. Moreover, traditional cryosphere satellite radar missions are unable to provide ice thickness estimates below 1 meter. The precise knowledge of sea ice is crucial to improve climate model forecasts and to assess the impact of the current Arctic sea ice melting trend on Europe's climate. It is thus strategic for Europe and Spain to have continuous, good quality monitoring of the Arctic thin ice, which can only be provided by L-band radiometers like SMOS and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission. Other emerging applications include the estimation of extreme winds, the detection and monitoring of serious threats for agriculture and forestry resources, and new research on the impact of the slow dynamics of ocean salinity on Earth climate. In the L-BAND project, we will further exploit the information content of L-band radiometers in order to ensure the successful exploitation of future missions. In particular, we will develop new products for applications of high economic and societal impact, and that will demonstrate the need for L-band continuity Spain is strategically very well positioned for a SMOS follow-on mission, since both the industry and the academia had a main role in the inception, design, construction, and operations of SMOS. With the L-BAND project, we aim at consolidating the leading role of Spain in the development and operations of any future mission exploiting L-band capabilities.

Abstract: See

Marine eukaryotic protists offer a huge but currently underexploited reservoir of metabolic pathways with biotechnological potential. Given their unique adaptations through symbiosis, endosymbiosis and organelle acquisition, the ecofunctionalities of protists present a hitherto untapped source to discover novel metabolic pathways and bioactivities whilst bearing a high chance of discovering different activities compared to those identified in marine sources, such as bacteria. The scientific approach and rationale sets PROMiSE apart from many previous scientific initiatives exploiting the biotechnological potential of marine bacteria. The PROMiSE experimental workflow enables this by employing a comprehensive set of Omics methods. This approach spans the encoded metabolic potential to identify biosynthetic gene clusters which in turn guide the targeted metabolite profiling, merged with discovery-based metabolomics. The goal is to target identified candidate compound classes and their pathway-related metabolites and conjugations dereplicated from the Omics information. By linking these methods back to the source cell through single cell Omic methods, PROMiSE offers a unique way to recognize functional gene clusters and to understand how metabolism is partitioned across ecosystems. This is important to unravel how the identified pathways work in nature, and by extension, how they can be expressed and utilized for technological adaptations relevant to a human health and biotechnology market. The vertically integrated extraction and analyses procedure within PROMiSE are supported by a comprehensive array of cutting-edge in vitro and in vivo bioassays for reliably assessing biological activities by High-Content profiling and antibacterial screening. Analytical chemistry, including high resolution mass spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance spetroscopy approaches, will be used to elucidate compounds found in the bioactive fractions, which will tie back the molecular data to identify relevant enzymes, pathways, and compounds.

Period: from 2017 to 2020
Funding: FORMAS
Coordinator: E. Berdalet, Biologia Marina i Oceanografia
Contact e-mail: berdaletaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

European coastal ecosystems are changing as a result of interactions between a number of drivers including overfishing, pollution, and climate change. Changes in marine ecosystems will impact on human health, food safety and the future sustainability of sectors including aquaculture, fisheries and tourism. Climate projection information is plentiful and there is considerable activity in marine ecosystem impact modelling; however, a disconnect remains between delivery of this information and its effective uptake by end users and policy makers. The CoCliME project will co-develop and co-produce a set of regionally focused climate services to address key impact areas including human health, aquaculture, fisheries and tourism across the regional seas of Europe. The developed services, and associated decision support tools, will empower and support vulnerable coastal sectors to accelerate adaptive decision-making and feed into key governance mechanisms such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, Marine Spatial Planning, and local, national and European adaptation planning. The project team brings together a newly established consortium of boundary organisation experts in co-development of climate services with leaders in marine ecosystem research, regional ocean climate modellers, and, at its heart, a number of targeted users and decision makers in each region. The project will offer an innovative and user-focused approach and the development of a societally relevant climate service framework, in addition to the bespoke climate services, that will be transferable to other regions, impact areas, users and marine ecosystem vulnerabilities. Through a regional case study approach, the specific needs of national and European marine ecosystem impact and adaptation planners and regulatory authorities will be identified and addressed through an evidence-based and iterative process designed to feed into climate adaptation strategies across the EU and beyond.

EFECTOS AMBIENTALES DURANTE EL DESARROLLO GONADAL EN PECES; EL PAPEL DE LA EPIGENETICA

Contact e-mail: lribasaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

Los animales de cultivo son criados en ambientes artificiales que pueden ser muy diferentes a las condiciones que encuentran en la naturaleza. Esto se hace evidente con el hecho de que las influencias del medio ambiente durante etapas tempranas del desarrollo afectan a muchos aspectos de la biología. Se conoce que el ambiente interactúa con el genoma y da, como resultado, modificaciones de la expresión génica que tienen consecuencias fenotípicas persistentes. Aunque estas situaciones se encuentran en la acuicultura, las interacciones ambiente-genoma-fenotipo son aún muy desconocidas. El objetivo general de este proyecto es estudiar si los efectos de los factores ambientales durante el desarrollo gonadal en peces influyen en el proceso de diferenciación sexual afectando al fenotipo final. Con tal fin, se estudiarán en primer lugar los cambios en las proporciones de machos, la biometría y la supervivencia de animales adultos (lubina y pez cebra) sujetos a diferentes factores ambientales durante la diferenciación gonadal. En segundo lugar, se abordarán aspectos moleculares del genoma de estos animales estudiando mecanismos epigenéticos (tanto a nivel de metilación del ADN y de la regulación por los microRNAs), la modulación de la expresión génica y la liberación de metabolitos gonadales. Con estas estrategias, se espera identificar marcadores moleculares que ayuden a comprender mejor los cambios fenotípicos ocurridos como consecuencia de un estrés ambiental que puedan proporcionar una base de conocimiento aplicable a los programas de selección en la acuicultura.

Abstract: See

PI-ICE aims to directly identify atmospheric aerosols emitted in the polar regions (both Arctic and Antarctic), their biological origin and their impact on the indirect radiative effect, with particular emphasis on the ice-water-atmosphere biogenic nitrogen cycle. This multidisciplinary project will (1) design and construct a portable aerosol chamber to study the role of atmosphere-ice-ocean interactions in the formation of aerosols in polar areas; (2) apportion the emissions of primary marine aerosols in the polar regions by means of laboratory studies, with particular emphasis on superficial waters impacted by ice melting and (3) obtain real time atmospheric data by collection of ambient aerosols at a fixed platform (Antarctic base Juan Carlos I), allowing the characterization of a wide range of ambient primary and secondary aerosols, including new particle formation and potentially aerosolized biogenic toxins. The PI-ICE project, coordinated by Manuel Dall'Osto, Elisa Berdalet and Dolors Vaqué, has the support from world leading scientists who will add expertise and complementary measurements. The sea-ice and the sea-ice influenced microbiota may be an important source of aerosols likely contributing to the cloud condensation nuclei population, with important consequences on the surface energy balance and ice melting. Our approach will be to synergistically use our competences in plankton ecology, ocean-atmosphere biogeochemistry and atmospheric chemistry in a project without precedent in the studied Arctic and Antarctic areas.

Unwanted catches of trawl fisheries: ecosystem effects and advances to an integrative management in the Mediterranean
Period: from 2017 to 2019
Funding: Comunidad europea
Coordinator: M. Demestre, Recursos Marins Renovables
Contact e-mail: montseaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

The main goal of the project is to adopt a socio-ecological framework to address the problem of unwanted catches of trawl fisheries, and advance towards solutions engaging in a feed-back process with stakeholders and end-users. The specific objectives are: i) Assess the vulnerability of by-catch and benthic species to commercial trawling and develop sets of indicators of the GES of benthic communities from fishing grounds. ii) Identify alternative fishing practices aiming at reducing unwanted catches and minimise benthic ecosystem disturbance, iii) Advance in citizen science by taking into account stakeholders’ priorities through an ecosystem services approach and include the social dimensions in the alternative fishing scenarios. iv) Evaluate the effects of the alternative fishing scenarios on by-catch species and benthic communitiesthrough size-spectra models. v) Simulate a participatory approach to promote feed-back between fishermen and scientists, and adapt the proposed model solutions to real-world situations.

TURBOMIX

Desarrollo de métricas basadas en la turbulencia para el monitoreo de la capa de mezcla oceánica a partir de observaciones de satélite

Abstract: See

Las medidas por satélite de la Temperatura Superficial del Mar (SST) proporcionadas por los radiómetros de infrarrojo han revelado la existencia de distintos regímenes de turbulencia de submesoscala. Las características de los cuales están directamente relacionadas con las propiedades de la capa de mezcla del océano lo que plantea si es posible extraer esta información a partir de las características de la turbulencia. Por otro lado, la existencia de largas series temporales ( > 30 años) de medidas globales de SST empuja a explorar si se pueden detectar cambios en la turbulencia de submesoscala en respuesta al calentamiento global. La dificultad principal consiste en definir descriptores capaces de identificar unívocamente los diversos regímenes. Enfoques estándar utilizados en los estudios de turbulencia geofísica, como el análisis espectral, son poco adecuados para este fin, lo que hace necesario encontrar alternativas. Resultados preliminares han demostrado que la intermitencia varía de un régimen a otro, lo que sugiere que podría ser utilizada para distinguir las propiedades de la parte superior del océano. En este proyecto proponemos utilizar el análisis de singularidades para este fin en lugar de las funciones de estructura ya que está mejor adaptado a las observaciones de SST (p.e. presencia de nubes). Además, existe un sólido marco teórico que lo conecta con el punto de vista más clásico basado en funciones de estructura. En consecuencia , en este proyecto, proponemos analizar la intermitencia de la turbulencia de submesoscala del océano para caracterizar las propiedades de las capas superiores del océano y evaluar la posibilidad de utilizarla para monitorizar la evolución del océano con el Cambio Climático. Además, las propiedades de invariancia de escala de nuestro enfoque permiten investigar la intermitencia usando campos de SST de baja resolución lo que explotaremos para comparar simulaciones climáticas existentes con las observaciones.

Contact e-mail: portabellaaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

Recent developments on the Ku-band scatterometer wind geophysical model function (GMF) include a sea surface temperature (SST) dependent term. It has been found that the SST effects on the radar backscatter are wind speed dependent and more pronounced in vertical polarization (VV) than in horizontal polarisation (HH) and at higher incidence angles, and are only relevant at radar wavelenghts smaller tan C-band. The new Ku-band GMF, NSCAT-5, is based on a physical model and Rapidscat radar backscatter measurements, which are only available at two incidence angles, i.e., 49⁰ and 56⁰, for HH and VV beams, respectively. The aim of this study is to verify the NSCAT-5 GMF at other incidence angles, using data from the recently-launched Indian SCATSat-1, which operates at 42.6⁰ (HH) and 49.3⁰ (VV) incidence angle. This is an extension of the already approved short-term AS CDOP-2 study, reference OSI_AVS_17_01. In fact, these two projects were initially planned as a single project, but divided in two to allow the use of the CDOP-2 remaining budget. The extended project objectives well fit within the CDOP-3 framework and associated work packages.

Intercomparison of ASCAT sea surface winds and NWC/GEO-HRW atmospheric motion vectors
Period: from 2017 to 2017
Funding: EUMETSAT
Coordinator: M. Portabella, Oceanografia Física i Tecnològica
Contact e-mail: portabellaaticm.csic.es
Abstract: See

Scatterometer-derived sea-surface vector winds, such as those from the Advanced Scatterometers (ASCAT-A & B) onboard Metop-A & B, and atmospheric motion vectors (AMVs) derived from geostationary satellite images, such as those provided with MSG satellite series by NWC/GEO-HRW algorithm, are routinely assimilated into numerical weather prediction (NWP) models, such as the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Two particular relevant problems in the Atmospheric Motion Vectors are: - The height assignment process, in which sometimes it is difficult to find an optimum pressure level for the derived AMVs, due to the vertical extension of the cloud and moisture tracers which are tracked by the AMV algorithm. This way, the “height assignment process” keeps on being the main source of errors related to the calculated AMVs. - The general scarcity, and the larger errors, of AMV data at the lowest atmospheric levels (near the ground). This is caused by the fact that with the current implementations, AMVs cannot be calculated below a layer of opaque clouds, so limiting the capabilities of the algorithm to extract winds near the surface. On the other side, validation statistics of low level AMVs (between 700 and 1000 hPa) have always shown to be the worst, in part due to the larger difficulties to differentiate and track clouds near the ground, which in infrared channels do not differentiate too much from the surrounding ground, and in part also due to the difficulties to relate the AMVs (mean winds related to the displacement of a tracer during several minutes) with the winds near the ground (which change in shorter temporal and spatial frames). The goal of this study is to perform a preliminary characterization of the differences between ASCAT winds and AMVs near the surface, as a function of the AMV height and wind variability conditions at the surface. This study also aims at assessing the potential of using scatterometer winds to characterize possible systematic errors in the AMVs and their estimated heights. ----------------------------------------------

Abstract: See

Las actividades humanas generan dos tipos de riesgo para las comunidades marinas: cambios en los parámetros físicos (temperatura y pH) y efectos derivados de las exposiciones químicas, actuando ambos como agentes estresantes para las éstas comunidades. El aumento de la temperatura marina ha permitido la dispersión de especies de bajas latitudes hacia otras más altas; llegando en algunos casos las exóticas a desplazar las nativas. Además la aclimatación a factores de estrés ambiental puede diferir entre especies nativas y exóticas, favoreciendo el establecimiento de las invasoras en ecosistemas vulnerables como es el Mediterráneo. En la presente propuesta pretendemos evaluar, en términos energéticos, el coste metabólico asociado a condiciones de estrés físico y químico, en particular y en combinación, bajo condiciones de laboratorio. Con la introducción de los parámetros evaluados en el modelo “dynamic energy budget” (DEB) proyectamos evaluar las consecuencias de las condiciones de estrés en dos especies relacionadas, dos peces (Solea solea/S. senegalensis) y dos bivalvos (Ruditapes decussatus/R. philippinarum). La aplicación del modelo DEB permite predecir las consecuencias ecológicas a largo plazo causadas por los agentes estresantes.
