Xu Chen: The 2nd Generation of FVCOM Simulation for Apalachicola Bay

Description: The fundamental motivation of this study is related to the  
ecosystem in Apalachicola Bay which has collapsed in recent years. It 
has a very bad influence on the fishery, oyster industry, related 
commercial, and recreational industries. To diagnose and restore the 
ecosystem in Apalachicola Bay, the ABSI project is proposed to gain 
insight into the problem. One important goal of ABSI is to configure a 
hydrodynamic model for the lower Apalachicola River, Apalachicola Bay 
and the surrounding coastal and inner shelf regions. Because Dmitry and 
Steve have configured one coarse-resolution model (100m) using FVCOM ten 
years ago, this model is considered as the 2nd generation of FVCOM 
simulation for Apalachicola Bay. Results of the simulation will be 
briefly presented in this talk.

Dmitry Dukhovskoy: Development of the CSOMIO coupled 
ocean-oil-sediment-biology model

Description: This talk will present a coupled 3D 
ocean-oil-biology-sediment modeling system developed by the Consortium 
for Simulation of Oil Microbial Interactions in the Ocean (CSOMIO) 
project. Central to CSOMIO’s coupled modeling system is an oil plume 
model coupled to the hydrodynamic model (Regional Ocean Modeling System, 
ROMS). The oil plume model is based on a Lagrangian approach that 
describes the oil plume dynamics including advection and diffusion of 
individual Lagrangian elements, each representing a cluster of oil 
droplets. The chemical composition of oil is described in terms of three 
classes of compounds: saturates, aromatics, and heavy oil (resins and 
asphaltenes). The oil plume model simulates the rise of oil droplets 
based on ambient ocean flow and density fields, as well as the density 
and size of the oil droplets. The oil model also includes surface 
evaporation and surface wind drift. A novel component of the CSOMIO 
model is two-way Lagrangian-Eulerian mapping of the oil characteristics. 
This mapping is necessary for implementing interactions between the 
ocean-oil module and the Eulerian sediment and biogeochemical modules.

Renee Richardson: /The NOAA SeaGrant Knauss Fellowship: My Experience 
and How You Can Apply!/

Description - In February 2021, I began my NOAA SeaGrant John A. Knauss 
Marine Policy Fellowship with my host office, NOAA Weather Program 
Office (WPO). For the past 6 months, I have gained policy and program 
management experience working in the Weather Observations Program and 
the Disaster Related Appropriation Supplemental (DRAS) Program. In this 
talk, I will cover the Knauss fellowship application process, placement 
process, my experiences, and the upcoming notice for applying to the 
2023 Knauss Fellow class.
