These talks are usually scheduled for the first Monday of each month. 
The first talk normally starts at 11:00AM.  Each talk is typically 12 
minutes long (similar to many professional meetings), with 8 minutes for 

These talks will be presented via Zoom, with the following connection

Daneisha Blair: /Impact of surface roughness and temperature on the 
motion of surface spill in the Gulf of Mexico/

Description: An at-sea oil spill poses a serious threat to marine 
resources and can be highly destructive to nearby wetlands and estuarine 
animal habitats. Forecasting surface oil size, location, and movement 
can be used to mitigate the damage resulting from an oil spill. In this 
study, we investigate how surface temperature and surface roughness 
caused by oil could impact oil transport under realistic environmental 
conditions using a coupled modeling system. I will be discussing does 
the role of the amount of oil on the ocean surface has a big impact on 
affecting atmospheric and oceanic processes.

Michael Stukel: Thorium sorption kinetics and the biological carbon pump 
in the Western Antarctic Peninsula coastal ecosystem

Description: Thorium-234 is an important tracer for the transport of 
carbon into the ocean's interior.  In this talk, I will present results 
from a six-month field campaign to understand carbon cycling in the 
coastal ecosystem of the Western Antarctic Peninsula, and show how a 
Bayesian model selection approach can be used to investigate thorium 
sorption dynamics and quantify marine carbon flux.

June 7th

Renee Richardson: /A Newly Developed Form Drag Derived from Sea Spray 
Influenced Surface Wind Stress at Hurricane Force Winds/

Description: Drag, or momentum transfer, at the air-sea interface is one 
of the major physical processes impacting hurricane intensity. Sea spray 
is suspected of playing a major role on the drag under hurricane wind 
conditions. In this study, we investigate the impact of a newly 
parameterized sea spray generation mechanism on drag, as well as total 
surface stress, under hurricane force winds. I will be discussing our 
findings on the spray influenced surface stresses.
