Did you know 27 trillion gallons of groundwater are withdrawn for use in the US each year? 44% of the US population depends on groundwater for drinking. It’s the world’s most extracted natural resource. Pay it forward during National Groundwater Awareness Week by letting others know the importance of groundwater. Let’s do our part to help protect it! #GWAW #lynker

Can We Protect ‘Ua‘u, The Hawaiian Petrel?

For the last two years, Lynker’s Sustainable Pacific Program (SPP) Hawaii (Big Island) team has partnered with Ke Ola magazine to run a series, “Mālama Mokupuni: Caring for Our Island Environment.” Ke Ola is distributed free in thousands of newsstands across the island. Lynker SPP’s Rachel Laderman coordinates the series and has contributed recent articles such as “Mauna Loa Observatory’s Keeling Curve Reveals CO2 Rise to the World” http://ow.ly/iSVn50ydh1v and “Can We Protect ‘Ua‘u, the Hawaiian Petrel?” http://ow.ly/aSw450ydh1w. Additional topics have spread the word on coral reefs and sunscreen, microplastics, and hawksbill turtle conservation. Lynker’s SPP is a program that leverages our regional and national coastal, marine, and ocean expertise – biophysical, sociocultural, economic, and administrative – to meet local needs in a very cost-effective way. Follow @LynkerSPP for more on their programs. http://ow.ly/3gDP50ydh1x

With a long life, a single egg per year, and vulnerability during months on the ground, the ‘ua‘u population can’t respond quickly to changing conditions.

Sometimes work takes you in the dark, under a bridge to fix solar panels in the name of data collection.

A field crew of Lynker staff from the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) Atlantic Operations Branch traveled to Charleston, South Carolina to perform maintenance on two major bridges. Both the Don Holt and Ravenel Bridges are part of the Charleston Harbor Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS®). These stations provide critical real-time data for under-bridge clearance and in conjunction with the nearby meteorological and water level stations, ship captains and pilots find these data invaluable. The Don Holt Bridge required measurement verification and updated Satlink software. The Ravenel Bridge was a bit more involved - crew members discovered a missing solar panel and a shattered solar panel, likely caused by Hurricane Dorian.

Lynker is a convention exhibitor at the Colorado Water Congress 2020 Annual Event in Westminster, CO. Roger Wolvington, a Hydrologic Modeler and Developer in Lynker's Boulder office, presented an interactive web-based version of our water supply model, CRAM. CRAM is a water resources tool used to support decisions for short, medium and long-range planning of a system’s raw water supply. CRAM simulates all components of a system including reservoirs, water rights, wells, diversions, return flows, exchanges and more, through an intuitive drag and drop user interface. It’s currently used by many cities, states and agencies throughout the United States for their water resources modeling and decision-making. We have a demonstration version to show some of the features of the tool. Give it a try at the following link: https://lnkd.in/ggW8FPX

Lynker employee Steve Simon (Sea Level Trends Physical Scientist), of the CO-OPS Applications and Analysis Team, updated the international (non-CO-OPS) stations on the CO-OPS Sea Level Trends website by finding and downloading the most recently available data in The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL), an international sea level database, and re-calculating trends for those stations. As a result, nearly half of the 370 international trends displayed are now updated to the end of 2018. (Some of the countries do not update their sea level data regularly). The map (below) illustrates relative sea level trends, with arrows representing the direction and magnitude of change. Clicking on an arrow allows you to access additional information about that station. The map is dynamic and you can find the latest version at the following link: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends.html

Lynker employee Analise Keeney, a Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Technical Specialist, working at NOAA’s National Ocean Service, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products & Services (CO-OPS), created an innovative poster (below) for the 10th U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae in Orange Beach, AL. Her poster, Stakeholder Engagement Shaping Better HAB Products, uses elements of graphic facilitation to illustrate improvements to Lake Erie HAB forecast products through strategic planning and outreach. Analise’s design garnered considerable attention for the creative way it distilled a detailed process into concise, visually catching graphics. #HAB #Lynker

Lynker Gives Back -
As 2019 comes to a close, we want to thank the many Lynker employees who gave back to their communities over the past year…whether by rescuing hikers in the Rockies day or night, coaching a cross country ski race team of adults with disabilities, helping children in foster care get adopted through beautiful photography, teaching kids with autism to surf, removing harmful algae in a Honolulu bay, or rescuing sea turtles in distress, our Lynker family made a difference in their communities.
