Development of the Gulf of Mexico marine debris model by Zachary Nixon( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of the model is to characterize spatial differences in the distribution of relatively large, storm-mobilized and deposited, anthropogenic marine debris objects across the nearshore seafloor so as to help prioritize these areas for survey. The guidance for developing the model was that it should be conceptually and statistically robust and based upon the data collected by the GOMMDP. In addition, the model should be as applicable as possible to a generic storm event, or a storm event to occur in the future"--Goal
Marine debris emergency response planning in the north-central Gulf of Mexico( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This document is a response to the need identified by Gulf region stakeholders. Its goal is to assist in the planning, assessment, removal, and disposal or recycling of marine debris. It provides guidelines, information, and resources to deal with marine debris dispersion in marine areas outside of major shipping channels, and it incorporates experience and lessons learned from the post-Katrina and Rita marine debris survey and removal efforts. The document does not attempt to provide a fully detailed plan nor serve as a regulatory requirement. Rather, it is a simple, informal, and hopefully useful tool to assist managers at the Federal, State, and local levels to be better prepared to deal with marine debris the next time a powerful storm creates a major marine debris problem. Because the document is largely based on the experience and operations conducted in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, it should apply only to these States -- referred to as the north-central Gulf region -- but the general approach may be a useful model for other coastal states and territories that anticipate significant marine debris events from storms and other natural disasters"--Introduction
Proceedings of the Japan Tsunami Marine Debris Summary Meeting by Japan Tsunami Marine Debris Summary Meeting( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main focus of the May 2014 Japan Tsunami Marine Debris (JTMD) Summary Meeting held in Seattle, Washington, was to derive lessons learned since 2011 and generate recommendations for responding to future tsunami events. This meeting's 47 participants were assigned to three break-out groups: Response, Science, and Communication. Using preparatory materials received in advanced, each participant contributed to the respective break-out group discussion, which summaries of which follow"--Lessons learned and recommendations
Transport of tsunami debris from the 2011 Tōhoku tsunami to the west coast of Canada( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 9, 2011, Fisheries and Oceans Canada's (DFO) Ocean Sciences Division (OSD) in Pacific Region requested that DFO Science, Pacific Region, provide information and advice regarding the transport of debris to the west coast of Canada from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. This Science Special Response Process (SSRP) was based on existing information on the debris and two independent ocean circulation models of simulating debris movements and drift rates in the North Pacific Ocean, both of which are subject to considerable uncertainty due to the minimal observation and tracking of debris, the diffuse nature of the debris field, and the absence of formal testing of the models. Although some of the debris from the 2011 Japanese tsunami will eventually reach North America, there remains considerable uncertainty with respect to the quantity and composition of debris still floating, the location of the debris, the pathway of the debris, and the timing and quantity of debris that will arrive. To address these uncertainties, recommendations to update this advice as new information becomes available from other Government agencies and to coordinate monitoring and surveillance are provided
Transport vers la côte ouest du Canada de débris marins issus du tsunami de Tōhoku de 2011( )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le 9 décembre 2011, la Division des sciences océanologiques (DSO) de Pêches et Océans Canada (MPO) de la région du Pacifique a demandé à la Direction des Sciences du MPO, région du Pacifique, de fournir des informations et un avis sur le transport vers la côte Ouest du Canada de débris issus du tremblement de terre et du tsunami qui se sont produits au Japon en mars 2011. Le présent processus spécial de réponse des Sciences (PSRS) se fonde sur l'information disponible sur les débris et deux modèles de circulation océanique indépendants, simulant les déplacements des débris et les vitesses de dérive dans le nord de l'océan Pacifique. Ces éléments sont toutefois sujets à un degré d'incertitude élevé en raison d'une observation et d'un suivi des débris insuffisants, de la nature diffuse de la zone de débris et de l'absence d'essais en bonne et due forme des modèles. Nous savons qu'une partie des débris du tsunami survenu au Japon en 2011 finira par atteindre l'Amérique du Nord, mais de nombreuses incertitudes subsistent quant à la quantité et la composition des débris encore à la dérive, leur emplacement, leurs voies de passage, ainsi que le moment où ils atteindront nos côtes et leur quantité. Pour y répondre, il est recommandé de mettre à jour le présent avis à mesure que de nouveaux renseignements sont obtenus d'autres organismes gouvernementaux et de coordonner la surveillance et le suivi des débris

The response to the Misawa dock on the Washington Coast by Nir Barnea( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"On December 14, 2012, a floating dock -- one of the four washed out from Misawa harbor by the devastating tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, 2011 -- was spotted off the Washington coast and reported to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). Federal and state agencies and Indian Tribes responded quickly and collaboratively, and prepared for the response, at sea or on shore. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) generated trajectories to estimate the dock's movement and possible landfall. USCG launched over-flights to search for the dock, locating it on December 18 at a remote beach in Washington State, within the Olympic National Park and Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary (OCNMS) areas. State and federal agencies convened in Forks, Washington at an Incident Command Post, and along with aquatic invasive species (AIS) experts, conducted a site visit to assess the dock and attached a tracking buoy to it. In later visits the agencies removed all visible growth, greatly reducing further risk of AIS introduction. Once it was on shore, responsibility for removal of the dock shifted to the landowners, NOAA and National Park Service (NPS), who put together a funding package and managed the contracting efforts to remove the dock"--Executive summary
