Marine LTSS: Climate Linked Atlantic Sector Science

Lead Research Organisation: National Oceanography Centre
Department Name: Science and Technology

Abstract

The ocean plays a vital role in sustaining life on planet Earth, both providing us with living resources and regulating our climate. The trajectory of current and future anthropogenically driven climate change will be very substantially controlled by the ability of the ocean to continue absorbing the 93% of excess heat and 30% of anthropogenic carbon entering the atmosphere that it currently takes up. The Atlantic Ocean is particularly important as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) transports heat northwards, keeping north-west Europe 3 degrees warmer than comparable latitudes in N America and Asia. The heat loss associated with the AMOC facilitates intense solubility-driven uptake of both natural and anthropogenic carbon. The Atlantic also supports spatially and temporally diverse biological communities in the water column and at the seafloor which constitute biodiversity reservoirs, act to store carbon in the oceans, and underpin the marine food web; in essence the ocean's natural capital. We now have abundant evidence that many features of the Atlantic Ocean and its marginal seas are changing, including the strength of the thermohaline and wind-driven circulation, sea surface and interior temperature and salinity distributions, air-sea CO2 fluxes, primary production and nutrient fields. These changes may constitute significant threats, by driving fundamental, but poorly understood, changes in the benefits we derive from the Atlantic Ocean. In an era of rapid planetary change, expanding global population and intense resource exploitation, it is vital that we have internationally coordinated observing and prediction systems so policy makers can make sound evidence-based decisions about the ocean. CLASS will take the powerful synergistic approach of using a range of internationally coordinated observations and world-class numerical models to assess the current status and future evolution of the role Atlantic Ocean systems play in regulating key aspects of ocean services. It will support the UK element of international ocean observing and modelling programmes, prioritising the use of autonomous vehicles and new sensors to improve efficiency, and increase the spatial and temporal coverage of our ocean observations, while reducing dependence on expensive research ships. These underpinning activities will provide a platform for future funding investments for the academic community and contribute key datasets and model outputs that can be used across the UK and global community to address important marine policy relevant questions. Finally, we will create effective engagement activities ensuring academic partners have transparent access to NERC marine science capability through graduate training partnerships and access to shipborne, lab-based and autonomous facilities, and modelling capabilities.

Description Research supported through CLASS has revealed that a deep-ocean process playing a key role in regulating Earth's climate is primarily driven by cooling waters west of Europe.
These findings will help scientists better forecast changes to the weather and climate by improving understanding of the influence of the ocean upon them. The study focused on part of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC), a system of ocean currents in the North Atlantic responsible for the transfer of huge amounts of heat from the ocean to northwest Europe, keeping its climate relatively mild.

National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) scientists collaborated on this study alongside colleagues from 16 research institutions across seven countries.The prevailing scientific view, based on modelling studies, had been that most of the AMOC's overturning and variability occurs in the Labrador Sea, off Canada. Whereas this new research, published in the Journal Science, shows the overturning and variability actually happens in regions between Greenland and Scotland. There, warm, salty, shallow waters are carried northward from the tropics by currents and wind, sink and convert into colder, fresher, deep waters moving southward through the Irminger and Iceland basins.
Exploitation Route These findings will help scientists better forecast changes to the weather and climate by improving understanding of the influence of the ocean upon them.

Description Please see extensive list of engagement activity, influence on policy, practice, patents and the public, and software and technical development. As a National Capability project, 80% of our activity is underpinning the UK contribution for the Global Ocean Observing system, working with the Met Office in weather and climate forecasting, developing the next generation of technology needed by the academic community for ocean observations and supporting UK Government in delivering its commitment to international programmes.However, for the evidenced based impact (as related to REF) we are collecting the evidence, but at 3.5 years into the project it is too early to confirm the final long term impacts. We were reviewed by Science Committee and Council as part of a mid-term review and have generated a mid-term report card. We have very positive feedback from Science Committee on the impact and outcomes of out work so far, it was understood that some expeditions had been delayed due to covid, but that we had used our tiem to generate key publications and wider impact.

Title Coastal permafrost erosion model 
Description Generic off-line pan-Arctic modelling tool of the coastal permafrost erosion has been developed in the framework of the new coupled ocean-sea ice-waves NEMO-CICE-WW3 model and can be used in other coupled and forced ocean-wave models. The developed model follows closely Wight's model (Barnhart 2014) and calculates coastal erosion due to wave action and sea level change anomalies, with added permafrost probability and adjustment for rocky/non rocky coast. The erosion rates depend on geological permafrost temperature, probability (PEX); ice content (ACDD) and marine parameters (SST, SWH, wave period). ACDD has the required variables to calculated organic carbon, nitrate and phosphate fluxes from erosion rates. The erosion model uses inputs from the coupled ocean-sea ice-waves model and land permafrost model and allows simulating permafrost erosion rates and fluxes of the terrigeneous matter, including fluxes of carbon, nutrients and contaminants.

Year Produced 2022 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The pan-Arctic model of the coastal permafrost erosion model can provide data on erosion rates for the current and future climate states and leads to the improved simulations of the marine biogeochemistry by accounting for the input of the land biogeochemical fluxes and land contaminants into the marine environment. The model provides coastal permafrost retreat data which allows assessing risks for the shore stability, shore settlements, on-shore structures and installations and can help coastal infrastructure development planning and climate impacts mitigation. The model can used for the ice barrier erosion assessments in the Antarctica.

Title Combined collisional and pack ice sea ice rheology and dynamics 
Description The method includes the full numerical implementation of combined granular rheology of Marginal Ice Zone sea ice and pack sea ice rheology (Feltham 2005). The method accounts for the impacts of sea ice fragmentation by waves on sea ice rheology and dynamics. The model implementation has been developed at the National Oceanography Centre by Drs Stefanie Rynders and Yevgeny Aksenov and has been included in the coupled and forced ocean-sea ice-waves NEMO(v3.6/v4.0+)-CICE5-ECMWF-WAM/WW3 configurations.

Title Model to assess combined risks from ocean currents, tides, waves and sea ice for offshore operations in the polar oceans and ice-covered seas 
Description Off-line model method and tool to calculate critical loads and safety limits to navigate in sea ice has been developed in the framework of the new coupled ocean-sea ice-waves NEMO-CICE-WW3 model by Drs Stefanie Rynders and Yevgeny Aksenov. The model uses inputs from the coupled ocean-sea ice-waves model and applies newly developed dynamical and static ice loads calculations, along with the safety ice navigation limits for different ship classes and critical loads from combined effects from currents and waves.

Impact It produces timeseries and spatial maps of the loads and maps safety areas for marine operations, including ships navigation and fixed off-shore structures exploitation. The model allows assessments of the combined navigational and structural integrity risks of the fixed and floating off-shore installations from sea ice drift and compressions, ocean waves, currents and tides regionally and globally in all the seasons, as for the present day conditions, as well as for the future climates. This is essential for the marine safety planning and forecasting.

Title Partially coupled global Forced model configuration NEMOv3.6-CICE5-ECWAM 
Description A partially coupled global ocean-sea ice-waves model has been developed by Drs Lucia Hosekova, Yevgeny Aksenov and Stefanie Rynders (NOC) for the model configuration NEMOv3.6-CICE5-WIM-ECWAM. The model has a fully interactive sea ice-wave model component - the Waves in Ice Module (WIM) which accounts for the process of the sea ice break up by waves, wave attenuation and propagation inside sea ice cover, wave-induced ocean mixing and melting of broken ice floes. The CICE5 model features a combined collisional-pack ice rheology, Elastic-Viscous-Plastic-Collisional rheology (EVPC) also developed and implemented by Drs Stefanie Rynders and Yevgeny Aksenov from the theoretical and analytical development by Feltham (2005), with several updates, including numerical solver for sea ice kinetic energy (granular temperature) evolution, and wave surge pressure. CICE5-WIM module simulates prognostic parameters of the sea ice floe sizes distribution, while using semi-empirical power law reconstruction of the floe sizes distribution after wave break up. CICE5-WIM modelling component is fully coupled to the ocean model NEMO and the whole modelling system is forced with the atmospheric re-analysis DFS5 and the wave fields from ECMWF wave model WAM (ECWAM). The partially coupled model has been configured and tested for the decadal integrations at 1 deg. and 1/4 deg. horizontal resolution (NEMO model grid).

Impact The results improve mixed layer depth simulations in the global models, providing ways to improve physical and biogeochemical model biases in the present climate model runs. The results feed in the NERC projects LTSM ORCHESTRA/ENCORE, "Towards the Marginal Arctic Sea Ice", PREMelt and LTSS CLASS and in inform the NEMO-SI3 model development strategy. The model improves predictions of the ocean and sea state in the ice covered areas, with applications for climate, forecasting, off-shore safety and marine industries by providing additional and more accurate information on the sea state in the ice-covered oceans, ice drift and dynamical ice stresses, ice fragmentation and floe sizes and the state of the upper ocean and mixed layer. The model development improved mixed layer depth simulations in the global models, providing ways to improve physical and biogeochemical model biases in the present climate model runs. The model is not more computationally expensive to run than conventional NEMO-CICE model, opening a way for the multi-decadal present and future climate simulations.

Title 16S rRNA gene V6 sequence data from station L4 in the Western English Channel, 2003 - 2008 
Description Surface samples were collected between January 2003 and December 2008. For DNA analysis 5 L of seawater was filtered through a 0.22-µm pore Sterivex GP filter (Millipore) and stored at -80°C. Prokaryotic 16S rRNA gene fragments were amplified targeting the V6 region (68 bp) of the 16S rRNA gene with the with the bacterial forward 967F and reverse 1046R primer sets (Sogin et al., 2006). Barcode incorporation, library generation and 454-pyrosequencing using the GS-flx platform and LR70 kit was performed according to the method described by Huber and colleagues (2007) at the ICoMM Initiative laboratory at Woods Hole. Detailed protocols regarding sampling, extraction, amplification, and sequencing protocols are described by Gilbert et al. (2009). ASV tables were rarefied to the lowest sampling depth which was 2916 reads. The raw .fna sequence data are available at the NCBI under accession numbers SRA009436 but lack matching .qual files. We have therefore now uploaded the original non-rarefied OTU-sequence table to the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) along with the relevant metadata.

Title Coupling MEDUSA with ERSEM benthic modules 
Description Incorporation of MEDUSA in FABM framework led to certain degree of modularisation of its code, which allowed to test coupling of its pelagic component with ERSEM benthic modules. The coupled configuration was tested in a global NEMO-FABM-MEDUSA setup (ORCA2). The benefit of coupling is that the lightweight of MEDUSA code suitable for global simulations is combined with considerably more detailed than the default benthic zone description from ERSEM, which will benefit future simulations at a higher resolution and allow better estimates of contribution of shallow areas within the Earth system. Configuration file for MEDUSA (pelagic)-ERSEM (benthic) system is available on PML gitlab server.

Title DY103 Cruise Report, RRS Discovery, PAP (Hartman) 
Description To study the oceanic water column and the underlying seabed change, on a variety of temporal and spatial scales. The objective of the Porcupine Abyssal Plain Sustained observatory is to provide high temporal resolution (hours) of an increasing number of variables which are relevant from the perspective of the biology, physics and chemistry over a relatively small spatial scale (30 km). The site has been under examination since 1985 and during that time, substantial changes have been observed in the benthic environment. The intention is to sustain and enhance these observations in order that a deeper understanding is obtained of the processes which operate; in particular the responses to the changes which are currently taking place in the global environment. The objective of the cruise was primarily to service the infrastructure required for continuous sustained observation, and to put these into context using observations from the ship which as yet cannot be carried out autonomously. In parallel to maintaining and extending exisiting measurements, the over view was enhanced by parallel research into the abundance and distribution of seafloor life in relation to incoming food flux. These investigations were carried out using a multi-instrument observational approach combined with direct sampling. The cruise achieved sampling of the abyssal plain seabed and its fauna via coring, trawling, and baited traps, and left in place a time-lapse camera system for extended (1-year) seafloor observation. In addition, we deployed an ADCP and sediment trap mooring in a central branch of Whittard Canyon on behalf of a partner NOC NERC-funded CLASS project component (NOC lead Drs V. Huvenne & M. Clare).

Title DY108 (DY109) Cruise Report- RRS Discovery, Darwin Mounds (Huvenne) 
Description The cruise discussed in this document is a combination of three expeditions with largely related aims: the CLASS programme, (Climate Linked Atlantic Sector Science) NERC's Long-Term Single Sector programme for marine research. The project aims to increase our understanding of how the ocean will evolve under a changing climate and increased human exploitation, with the objective to support sustainable marine management. More specifically, the work during DY108-109 consisted of the re-survey of the Darwin Mounds Marine Protected Area, The Darwin Mounds are small (~75m across, max 5 m high) cold-water coral mounds that were protected from bottom contact fisheries in 2003. The mounds were initially discovered in 1998, and further surveys took place in 2000 and 2011. The aim of the expedition was to identify and quantify any potential changes to the habitats and benthic communities in the area over the last 20 years. On our way out to the Darwin Mounds, we also aimed to pick up a lander from the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), and deploy a replacement system. This work is also part of the CLASS programme, and fits into the long-term oceanographic monitoring of the so-called "Ellet Line". Unfortunately neither the pick-up or deployment were successful. BioCAM: This cruise demonstrated technology currently being developed under the NERC OCEANIDS program (BioCam NE/P020887/1: 2017~2021) to generate wide area (~100ha) 3D visual reconstructions (imagery and seafloor topography) from which the distribution of live coral can be determined. The survey was performed using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Autosub6000 equipped with the 3D visual mapping instrument "SeaXerocks 4" (NE/P020887/1). This takes downward looking stereo imagery and laser bathymetry of the seafloor from an altitude of ~6m. Two full coverage mosaics of ~25ha were collected during this expedition. BLT-Recipes project: BLT Recipes seeks to test an emergent new paradigm of ocean mixing, whereby deep-ocean upwelling is primarily driven by bottom boundary layer turbulence instead of by breaking internal waves in the ocean interior - as has been held over the last four decades. The deep-ocean basin in which the experiment will be conducted is the Rockall Trough (RT), in the Northeast Atlantic. The sea-going activities for this project are mainly planned from summer 2020 onwards, but during DY108-109 two 24h yoyo CTD deployments were carried out to provide important background information for cruise planning.

Title DY110 Cruise Report, RRS Discovery, AMT29 (Dall'Olmo) 
Description The overall aim of the Atlantic Meridional Transect programme is: to quantify key biogeochemical and ecosystem processes and their inherent variability over extended time and spatial scales in the Atlantic Ocean. This is achieved by executing an annually repeated meridional transect through contrasting oceanic provinces, ranging from oligotrophic deserts, to highly productive shelf seas. The specific objectives of AMT are: - To quantify the nature and causes of ecological and biogeochemical variability in planktonic ecosystems; - To quantify the effects of this variability on nutrient cycling, on biogenic export and on air-sea exchange of climate active gases; - To construct multi-decadal, multidisciplinary ocean time-series which are integrated within a wider "Pole-to-pole" observatory concept; - To provide essential sea-truth validation for current and next generation satellite missions; - To provide essential data for global ecosystem model development and validation; - To provide a valuable, highly sought after and unique training arena for the next generation of UK and International oceanographers.

Title European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model 19.04 
Description ERSEM is an ecosystem model of marine biogeochemistry and the lower trophic levels of the marine food-web. It is used in a wide variety of projects funded by NERC, Defra, the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service, and the EU Horizons 2020 program, among others. Changes in ERSEM 19.04 New functionality • provide pH on total scale (seawater scale is still supported, but not the default) • new module for fluff (particulate matter at sediment-water interface) • many more diagnostics, sufficient to completely reconstruct C,N,P flows throughout the ecosystem • benthic bacteria now support arbitrary numbers of substrates • first-order temperature-dependent mineralisation of benthic POM (default: off) • configurable critical shear threshold for deposition at bed (default: as before) • no_river_dilution is configurable for all pelagic variables Changed behaviour • apply resuspension to the surface concentration rather than the column total of benthic POM. This prevents excessive resuspension at high bottom shear stress • disabled river dilution of yellow matter (light_iop_ady) Fixes • temperature dependence of air-sea oxygen exchange • bacteria dynamics for sR1 values other than 1 • temperature responses under very low temperatures • various fixes for numerical stability (e.g., rate dampening) • various fixes to prevent NaNs (e.g., avoid 0/0) for very rare combinations of state and environment

Title GOTM-ERSEM implementation in the Laptev sea 
Description A new model formulation describing terrigenous DOC (TDOC) dynamics has been implemented in the ERSEM model. Following Anderson et al (2019) TDOC is modelled through 2 state variables, photo-labile and non-photo-labile TDOC. ERSEM+TDOC has been coupled with the General Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM) and implemented in the Laptev Sea. The model was run with 3 different TDOC inputs (current TDOC conc., +30% and +50%) to have a preliminary assessment on how increasing TDOC discharge (permafrost melting) might affect marine ecosystem during the productive season (June-September). Year 2012 has been taken as example.

The intention is to sustain and enhance these observations in order that a deeper understanding is obtained into the processes which operate; in particular the responses to the changes which are currently taking place in the global environment. The objective of the cruise was primarily to service the infrastructure required for continuous sustained observation, and to put these into context using observations from the ship which as yet cannot be carried out autonomously. In parallel to maintaining and extending exisiting measurements, the over view was enhanced by parallel research into the abundance and distribution of seafloor life in relation to incoming food flux and topographic features. These investigations were carried out using a multi instrument observational approach combined with direct sampling. The cruise achieved sampling of the abyssal plain seabed and its fauna via coring, trawling, and baited traps, and left in place a time-lapse camera system for extended (1-year) seafloor observation.

Title JC166 (167) Cruise Report, RRS James Cook, Haig Fras Marine Conservation Zone (Huvenne) 
Description JC166-167 combined two sets of activities: the delivery of scientific research funded through the NERC National Capability programme CLASS, and training & equipment trials for the engineers of the MARS group within NOC. The work was carried out in two main research areas west of Cornwall: the Greater Haig Fras Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ), and the Whittard Canyon submarine canyon complex. Both research areas are major study sites within the CLASS programme, and specifically the work at Haig Fras was one of the main deliverables of the programme for 2018. Haig Fras is the only rocky reef on the Celtic Shelf, west of Cornwall. The Greater Haig Fras area was designated an (MCZ) in 2016 to protect this unique site and its mosaic of rock and sedimentary habitats. To demonstrate the use of autonomous survey methods for the monitoring of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and improve our understanding of the natural variability of this mosaic habitat, NOC has set up a series of repeat AUV surveys (multibeam echosounder, sidescan sonar, photography) over the area, with a 3 year cycle. The Whittard Canyon system on the Celtic Margin is a key area to achieve an understanding of the interaction between coastal & shelf waters and the open ocean. The heterogeneous terrain of submarine canyons has a strong influence on oceanographic processes, focusses the transport of sediments, organic matter and nutrients, can create a series of potential geohazards and tends to support an increased diversity in habitats and species. Part of the Whittard Canyon system was declared an MCZ in 2013, protecting, amongst others, both healthy and heavily impacted cold-water coral reefs from further human impacts. The equipment trials and personnel training covered a range of systems, including the ROV Isis, AUV Autosub6000, a wave-glider, a deep glider, the ASV C-worker and a drone. Overall, the aims of the cruise were four-fold: - Re-survey of the Haig Fras site (for the CLASS project) - Training of ROV and AUV engineers - Equipment trials - Acquisition of opportunistic data from Whittard Canyo

Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A hydrographic section across the North Atlantic Ocean at a nominal latitude of 24°N was occupied by the RRS James Cook (cruise identifier: JC191) from 19 January to 1 March, 2020. The ship departed from Port Everglades, USA, completing a total of 135 CTD stations over the Florida Straits, the western basin, Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and eastern basin, before ending the cruise in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain. The main objectives of the JC191 research expedition was to collect physical-, chemical-, and biological-ocean data with the purpose of estimating heat, freshwater and carbon budgets on low frequency time scales. All CTD stations had measurements from a CTD rosette equipped with temperature, conductivity, pressure, oxygen sensors, in addition to water captured from 24 niskin bottles fired at varying intervals throughout the full depth water column. The water from the niskin bottles was analysed for dissolved oxygen, carbon (DIC/TA), nutrients, and conductivity. Water for methane (CH4), C14, C13, and pigments (filtered) was collected for onshore analysis. The CTD rosette was also equipped with 2 RBR loggers measuring conductivity, temperature and pressure (up to 6,000m), and a lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) making full depth velocity measurements. The 135 CTD stations include 2 carbon blank stations, and 2 bulk water stations for incubations. In addition to the CTD stations, the RRS James Cook has an underway system, which includes an intake for surface water to be pumped into the water bottle annex and the deck lab; two vessel mounted ADCPs (VMADCPs). A thermosalinograph and a fluorometer, installed in the water bottle annex, continually recorded conductivity, temperature and fluorescence. Water from the CTD was collected to calibrate the ship's underway TSG. The VMADCPs, 75Hz and 150HZ, mounted on the drop keel record ocean velocities in roughly the top 300- and 600-m, respectively. Surface carbon and methane measurements were also recorded from the underway systems, and surface meteorological variables were monitored via the meteorological sampling system and the pumped water underway system. Finally bathymetric data were recorded an EA640 echosounder and a Kongsberg EM122 multibeam, both of which are mounted on the ship's hull. Last, 5 Deep Apex Argo floats measuring conductivity, temperature, pressure and oxygen (except for one float not equipped with an optode) were deployed in the western basin.

Title Off-line model to assess combined risks from ocean currents, tides, waves and sea ice for offshore operations in the polar oceans and ice-covered seas 
Description Off-line model to calculate critical loads and safety limits to navigate in sea ice has been developed in the framework of the new coupled ocean-sea ice-waves NEMO-CICE-WW3 model by Drs Stefanie Rynders and Yevgeny Aksenov (NOC). The model uses inputs from the coupled ocean-sea ice-waves model and applies newly developed dynamical and static ice loads calculations, along with the safety ice navigation limits for different ship classes and critical loads from combined effects from currents and waves. The model is generic and can use netcdf input from any ocean-sea ice-wave models. The model produces timeseries and spatial maps of the loads and maps safety areas for marine operations, including ships navigation and fixed off-shore structures exploitation.

Title Off-line pan-Arctic model of the coastal permafrost erosion 
Description Off-line pan-Arctic model of the coastal permafrost erosion has been developed in the framework of the new coupled ocean-sea ice-waves NEMO-CICE-WW3 model. The erosion model uses inputs from the coupled ocean-sea ice-waves model and land permafrost model and allows simulating permafrost erosion rates and fluxes of the terrigeneous matter, including fluxes of carbon, nutrients and contaminants. The developed model follows closely Wight's model (Barnhart 2014) and calculates coastal erosion due to wave action and sea level change anomalies, with added permafrost probability and adjustment for rocky/non rocky coast. The erosion rates depend on geological permafrost temperature, probability (PEX); ice content (ACDD) and marine parameters (SST, SWH, wave period). ACDD has the required variables to calculated organic carbon, nitrate and phosphate fluxes from erosion rates.

Impact Arctic coastal erosion is an increasing problem via threat to infrastructure, also it affects the marine environment. Arctic coast is mainly soft sediment permafrost. Sea ice protection is decreasing, leading to increased erosion from waves and melting. The pan-Arctic model of the coastal permafrost erosion model leads to the improved simulations of the marine biogeochemistry by accounting for the input of the land biogeochemical fluxes and land contaminants into the marine environment. The model offers quantitative assessments of the future erosion trends, informing mitigation scenarios of the coastal structure integrity and settlements safety. The model can be used to assess melting and collapse of the ice barrier from the waves in the Antarctica and sea level rise.

Title Wave-sea ice-ocean global model NEMOv3.6-CICE5-WIM-ECWAM 
Description A partially coupled global ocean-sea ice-waves model has been developed by Drs Lucia Hosekova, Yevgeny Aksenov and Stefanie Rynders (NOC) for the model configuration NEMOv3.6-CICE5-WIM-ECWAM. The model has a fully interactive sea ice-wave model component - the Waves in Ice Module (WIM) which accounts for the process of the sea ice break up by waves, wave attenuation and propagation inside sea ice cover, wave-induced ocean mixing and melting of broken ice floes. The CICE5 model features a combined collisional-pack ice rheology, Elastic-Viscous-Plastic-Collisional rheology (EVPC) also developed and implemented by Drs Stefanie Rynders and Yevgeny Aksenov from the theoretical and analytical development by Feltham (2005), with several updates, including numerical solver for sea ice kinetic energy (granular temperature) evolution, and wave surge pressure. CICE5-WIM module simulates prognostic parameters of the sea ice floe sizes distribution, while using semi-empirical power law reconstruction of the floe sizes distribution after wave break up. CICE5-WIM modelling component is fully coupled to the ocean model NEMO and the whole modelling system is forced with the atmospheric re-analysis DFS5 and the wave fields from ECMWF wave model WAM (ECWAM). The partially coupled model has been configured and tested for the decadal integrations at 1 deg. and 1/4 deg. horizontal resolution (NEMO model grid).

Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2017

Impact The model improves predictions of the ocean and sea state in the ice covered areas, with applications for climate, forecasting, off-shore safety and marine industries by providing additional and more accurate information on the sea state in the ice-covered oceans, ice drift and dynamical ice stresses, ice fragmentation and floe sizes and the state of the upper ocean and mixed layer. The model development improved mixed layer depth simulations in the global models, providing ways to improve physical and biogeochemical model biases in the present climate model runs. The model is not more computationally expensive to run than conventional NEMO-CICE model, opening a way for the multi-decadal present and future climate simulations. The results feed in the NERC projects LTSM ORCHESTRA/ENCORE, "Towards the Marginal Arctic Sea Ice", PREMelt and LTSS CLASS and in inform the NEMO-SI3 model development strategy.

Title Western Channel Observatory (L4) nutrient concentration profiles (2000 - 2018) 
Description Results are reported for the analysis of water samples taken from the L4 long-term sampling station (50 15.0'N; 04 13.0'W) situated off the southwest coast of England, United Kingdom. The analyses are reported for Nitrate+Nitrite, Nitrite, Silicate and Phosphate concentrations, for samples that are both filtered and unfiltered. The dataset begins in 2000 and runs through to 2018. Since 2007 the site visits have been on a more regular almost weekly sampling protocol. A classical picture is seen of generally summer nutrient depletion and with higher winter concentrations of Nitrate, Silicate and Phosphate, however particularly in wet summers like 2012 there is a big influence of the River Tamar and spikes of high nutrient loads are seen being introduced into this nearshore sampling site.

Title Western Channel Observatory: L4 and E1 Microbial methanol uptake rates, virus numbers & diversity of xoxF5 genes. 
Description A one-year time-series was conducted with the objectives of (i) characterising the seasonal variability in microbial methanol uptake rates throughout the water column, and (ii) determine whether any relationships exist with virus abundances, biogeochemical parameters and/or bacterial groups. Sampling was carried out between August 2017 and September 2018, with water samples used to determine the microbial methanol uptake (dissimilation and assimilation) and bacterial production rates. Additionally, samples were taken to investigate the virus abundances, bacterial abundances and DNA was extracted from 0.2 µm filters to investigate the taxonomic diversity of the 16S rRNA (V4 Region) and xoxF5 genes at surface and bottom depths. Samples from L4 were taken from different depths (2 m, 10 m, 25 m and 50 m), but assimilation was only determined at surface and 50 m depth. Similarly, at E1, water samples for uptake rates and virus abundances were determined at the surface and 60 m.

Title Zooplankton abundance time series from net hauls at site L4 off Plymouth, UK between 1988-2019. 
Description Ongoing zooplankton research at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory has established a time series of zooplankton species since 1988 at L4, a coastal station off Plymouth, UK. Weekly samples are collected by vertical net hauls (WP2 net, mesh 200 µm; UNESCO 1968) from the sea floor (approximately 50 m) to the surface and stored in 4% buffered formalin. Results presented are n/m3 mean values from two replicate hauls made on each sampling timepoint. Some of the zooplankton analysis has been to the level of "major taxonomic groups" only, and a number of different analysts have participated over the years. The level of expertise has generally been consistent, but the user should be aware that levels of taxonomic discrimination may vary during the course of the data-set, please see metadata table for more information on this and the description document regarding complexities of the dataset.

Description NOC and Met Office Collaboration 
Organisation Meteorological Office UK
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Under the Joint Weather and Climate Research Programme (JWCRP) between NERC and the Met Office, we have forged a strong strategic partnership with the Met Office. This takes the form of the Joint Marine Modelling Project (JMMP; formerly JOMP; the Joint Ocean Modelling Programme and JCOMP; the Joint Coastal Ocean Modelling Programme). JMMP comprises staff from both NOC (from the Marine Systems Modelling group) and the Met Office and enables the best possible versions of the NEMO global and coastal-ocean models to be taken up into predictive systems at the Met Office (for ocean forecasting, coupled weather forecasting, seasonal prediction, decadal prediction, and climate and earth system modelling). Successive versions of NEMO are developed internationally on a regular cycle and have a number of new options. The benefit of these options are assessed both individually and in various combinations through undertaking decadal timescale simulations on MONSooN, a supercomputer facility shared between NERC and the Met Office, and identical in architecture to the main Met Office supercomputer. Once the optimal combination of options has been ascertained, the NEMO model can then be rapidly and easily taken up into the predictive systems at the Met Office. The cycle is repeated approximately every 1-2 years. The shelf seas activities, specifically support the models run operationally in the shelf sea forecasting and reanalysis system at the Met Office and delivered by the European Copernicus Marine Environmental Monitoring Service. Alongside JMMP, the National Partnership for Ocean Prediction (formally known as the National Centre for Ocean Forecasting) aims to develop and promote the application of world-leading marine products and services to stakeholders, with a focus on national and public benefit. This is achieved firstly through the integration of models, observations and scientific understanding to produce the best information and advice about the marine environment, with rigorous quality assurance and traceability; and secondly through engaging with stakeholders to understand their requirements and to maximise the beneficial use of marine products and services.
