General NOAA Operational Modeling Environment (GNOME) technical documentation( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dramatic incidences of marine pollution, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil well blowout and the wreckage of the oil tanker Exxon Valdez, have highlighted the potential for human-caused environmental damage. In attempting to mitigate or avoid future damage to valuable natural resources caused by marine pollution, research has been undertaken by the scientific community to study the processes affecting the fate and distribution of marine pollution, and especially to model and simulate these processes. One area of research is the computerized Lagrangian transport or trajectory model (ASCE, 1996). Trajectory models attempt to predict the movement of actual or hypothetical pollution spills. Needless to say, all existing computerized trajectory models have their virtues and their defects. It is probably not possible to devise a single computational model or framework to satisfy all users. In developing GNOME, we have tried to balance the contradictory notion of a comprehensive model that is both easy to use and which rapidly produces useful and accurate results. This is especially important since GNOME is primarily a forecaster tool. GNOME, version 1.3.5, is an interactive environmental simulation system designed for the rapid modeling of pollutant trajectories in the marine environment. The overall design is that of modular and integrated software. Inputs to GNOME include: maps, bathymetry, numerical circulation models, location and type of the spilled substance, oceanographic and meteorological observations, and other environmental data. The output from the model consists of graphics, movies, and data files for post-processing in a geographic information system (GIS) or NOAA Emergency Response Division's (ERD1) in-house model GNOME Analys"--Overview

Toxicity of oil to reef-building corals : a spill response perspective by Gary Shigenaka( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evaluation of oil toxicity in general is not a simple or easy task. What we consider as 'oil' includes qualitatively and chemically very different kinds of materials. Moreover, different species and even different life stages within the same species can react in dramatically different ways to oil exposure. Because the conditions encountered at each spill present a unique set of physical, chemical, and biological circumstances, it is a daunting undertaking to provide general oil toxicity guidance for responders. In the case of oil toxicity as it relates to corals and coral reefs, it is further complicated because there is limited information on the fundamentals of toxicity and toxicology. There is also reasonable doubt about how well information for one area or one species extends across other areas and the hundreds of species currently delineated. For spill responders and resource managers faced with making choices during oil spills in coral reef areas, the major dilemma is how to use the available science in a meaningful and appropriate fashion. That is, just because someone has studied oil and corals either in the laboratory or in the field does not necessarily mean that the results of that work will help us understand what will occur during a specific spill or cleanup"--Introduction

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
Proceedings of the Workshop on State-level Responses to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels, September 15-17, 2009, Miami, FL by Workshop on State-level Responses to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The State-level Responses to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels workshop was held September 15 to 17, 2009. A representative from each coastal state (including the Great Lakes) was invited to attend. The term 'state' should be interpreted throughout this document to include territories and commonwealths of the United States of America. This document is organized to provide two levels of detail for any audience interested in abandoned and derelict vessels (ADVs). Section I has been designed as a reference tool to provide introductory and high-level information on the components of a state-level ADV program. In Section II, a significant amount of information is included for each of the identified components of a successful state ADV program. During the workshop, attendees shared numerous ideas during the discussion of each program component-first in small teams, and then with the entire workshop. Support and criticism for each idea was shared openly, and the detailed description found under each idea is taken directly from the expert attendees"--Preface

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
