attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String We simulated documented behaviors using the Autonomous Behaving Lagrangian
Explorer (ABLE). It can be programmed to maintain depth or vertically migrate
in response to in-situ variables, like the larvae under study. It can reveal
quasi-Lagrangian transport of vertically migrating plankters that swim between
water parcels at different depths. ABLE weighs 3 kg and is 36 cm tall, topped
by a 15 cm antenna mast. It necessarily integrates water motions at and below
its own scale. Consequently, it cannot mimic transport of individual
plankters, nor diffusive processes at scales smaller than its own. ABLE best
simulates the transport of the centroid of a cloud of plankters that is large
relative to its own dimensions.

ABLE dynamically calculates its target depth from measurements of its
immediate microenvironment and a behavioral model for the organism being
simulated. It moves toward the new target depth at a biologically realistic
velocity, permitting it to show transport consequences of adaptive behaviors
in response to actual (not average) conditions and actual (not modeled) water
movements. Because behavioral patterns are under the experimenter\u2019s
control, ABLE can reveal effects of either known or hypothetical behavior
patterns. ABLE has no structures outside the parcel of water in which it is
embedded, hence no extraneous drag that would cause drift errors. Use of ABLE
(unlike modeling) requires no a priori characterization of the system before
the first data can be collected; immediately upon deployment it begins
yielding information on how water and organisms in the system move.

Although ABLE has no extraneous drag, hence no drift errors, while embedded in
the tracked water parcel, it must periodically leave that parcel and make
excursions to the surface to obtain and transmit GPS fixes. A drift error is
created by velocity differences (relative to the target parcel) at other
depths multiplied by the time ABLE spends transiting each during a pop-up,
which cannot be simply estimated in heterogeneous systems. A rule of thumb
analogous to that for suspended-drogue drifters would be that ABLE must spend
<1/40 of the time making excursions to the surface. As target (operating)
depth increases, transit time to the surface increases, and hence allowable
fix frequency decreases.

To facilitate tracking, it has an ultrasonic beacon that provides bearings and
telemeters depth during operation at depth; when at the surface it obtains
fixes from its GPS receiver and transmits the fix data by VHF radio (short
range) and satellite modem (global range). The GPS fix obtained at each
surface interval is logged in ABLE\u2019s data memory, even if it is not
received by the Globalstar satellite system. To facilitate recovery at the sea
surface, it transmits updated fixes continuously by VHF and periodically via
satellite while blinking high-brightness LED beacons for visual fixes. We also
command ABLE to surface for recovery by decoding ultrasonic signals while
rejecting noise from surf and biota. It senses the bottom and swims up a
programmed distance above the substrate.

When deployed, it uses measurements of in-situ variables (depth, T, S, PAR,
time of day, vertical speed relative to water). It subtly adjusts buoyancy (by
< 1g) to \"swim\"\u00a0toward that target depth, maintaining a rate realistic
for the organism being simulated (0 to >10 cm/s). It periodically pops to the
surface to obtain a GPS fix and transmit it by VHF, ultrasonic pinger and
satellite (or cell phone) modem. Along its entire trajectory, it logs in-situ
measurements; the suite of variables and frequency of logging are user-
selectable. On the bench, ABLE communicates by wireless Bluetooth with a host
computer or smart phone and presents a menu for downloading logged data,
testing and calibrating sensors, altering data logging parameters, or even
rewriting the entire program. Endurance during deployments is about 2 wk with
7 NiMH \"D\"\u00a0cells, depending on frequency of excursions to the surface
and pumping of ballast to hoist antennas.

attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String Description from NSF award abstract:
The majority of larvae of coastal marine species are planktonic and generally weak swimmers. Thus, they are thought to be dispersed widely by coastal currents. However, there is accumulating evidence that their behavior can strongly influence their transport: some remain within estuaries, while others make true migrations between adult and larval habitats, even out to the edge of the continental shelf and back. Rates and directions of larval transport are thought to be determined largely by the timing, duration, and amplitude of vertical migrations and the mean depth that larvae occupy in stratified flows. The PIs propose to provide one of the first direct tests of how behavior affects across-shelf and alongshore transport using biomimetic drifters. The study will be conducted in a region of persistent upwelling, where strong currents are widely believed to overwhelm larval swimming and limit recruitment to adult populations.
Knowledge of underlying mechanisms regulating larval transport is central to understanding ecology and evolution in the sea and anticipating the impacts of climate change on marine populations and communities. The proposed research will provide the first experimental field-test of how larval behavior affects the rates, directions and distances of transport and population connectivity in an upwelling regime. The PIs will test three hypotheses:
1. Residence below the wind-driven surface layer and vertical migrations below that layer keep larvae closer to shore compared to residence in the surface layer or larvae without depth preferences and vertical migration.
2. Residence at depth enhances northward transport near shore, and vertical migration leads to decreased alongshore mean displacement but increased variance for a group.
3. Depth preferences and vertical migrations have pronounced effects on retention and transport of plankton in upwelling regions.
The study will compare direct measurements from mimetic drifters with observed and modeled cross-shelf larval distributions, and with modeled alongshore transport. Results will be broadly applicable to upwelling regimes along the western margins of continents, and the approach can be applied to non-upwelling systems throughout the world.
