  • The Chesapeake Bay Ecological Prediction System (CBEPS) automatically generates daily nowcasts and three-day forecasts of several environmental variables, such as sea-surface temperature and salinity, the concentrations of chlorophyll, nitrate, and dissolved oxygen, and the likelihood of encountering several noxious species, including harmful algal blooms and water-borne pathogens, for the purpose of monitoring the Bay's ecosystem. While the physical and biogeochemical variables are forecast mechanistically using the Regional Ocean Modeling System configured for the Chesapeake Bay, the species predictions are generated using a novel mechanistic empirical approach, whereby real-time output from the coupled physical biogeochemical model drives multivariate empirical habitat modelsmore » of the target species. The predictions, in the form of digital images, are available via the World Wide Web to interested groups to guide recreational, management, and research activities. Though full validation of the integrated forecasts for all species is still a work in progress, we argue that the mechanistic–empirical approach can be used to generate a wide variety of short-term ecological forecasts, and that it can be applied in any marine system where sufficient data exist to develop empirical habitat models. This paper provides an overview of this system, its predictions, and the approach taken.« less
  • This paper shows that semi-empirical data-driven models based on a twotime- scale approximation for the magnetic and kinetic control of advanced tokamak (AT) scenarios can be advantageously identified from simulated rather than real data, and used for control design. The method is applied to the combined control of the safety factor profile, q(x), and normalized pressure parameter, β N, using DIII-D parameters and actuators (on-axis co-current neutral beam injection (NBI) power, off axis co-current NBI power, electron cyclotron current drive power, and ohmic coil). The approximate plasma response model was identified from simulated data obtained using a rapidly converging plasmamore » transport code, METIS, which includes an MHD equilibrium and current diffusion solver, and combines plasma transport nonlinearity with 0-D scaling laws and 1.5-D ordinary differential equations. A number of open loop simulations were performed, in which the heating and current drive (H&CD) sources were randomly modulated around the typical values of a reference AT discharge on DIIID. Using these simulated data, a two-time-scale state space model was obtained for the coupled evolution of the poloidal flux profile and βN parameter, and a controller was synthesized based on the near-optimal ARTAEMIS algorithm [D. Moreau et al., Nucl. Fusion 53 (2013) 063020]. The paper discusses the results of closed-loop nonlinear simulations, using this controller for steady state AT operation. With feedforward plus feedback control, the steady state target q-profile and β N are satisfactorily tracked with a time scale of about ten seconds, despite large disturbances applied to the feedforward powers and plasma parameters. The effectiveness of the control algorithm is thus demonstrated for long pulse and steady state high-β N AT discharges. Its robustness with respect to disturbances of the H&CD actuators and of plasma parameters such as the H-factor, plasma density and effective charge, is also shown.« less
  • Crossed molecular beam measurements of the total differential cross sections (DCS) for the scattering of Ar and Kr by SF/sub 6/ are reported. Using anisotropic multiparameter M3SV potential forms and the infinite order sudden approximation (IOSA) to do the scattering dynamics, we determine anisotropic intermolecular potentials by simultaneously fitting the DCS, viscosities, and virial coefficients. Substantial anisotropy is required to fit the observed damping of the rainbow oscillations in the DCS. The results are the first good intermolecular potentials for the ArSF/sub 6/ and KrSF/sub 6/ interactions.
  • Crossed molecular beam measurements of elastic differential cross sections (DCS) for the scattering of Ar and Kr by Xe are reported. Empirical multiparameter M3SV interatomic potentials for the ArXe and KrXe interactions are determined by simultaneously fitting the DCS, the viscosities, and virial coefficients; the results are the most accurate potentials yet reported for these systems.
  • Crossed molecular beam measurements of the total differential cross sections (DCS) for the scattering of He and Ne by SF/sub 6/ are reported. Using anisotropic MSV potential forms and the IOS approximation to do the scattering dynamics, we determine anisotropic intermolecular potentials by simultaneously fitting the DCS, viscosities, virial, and diffusion coefficients. Damping of the diffraction oscillations in the DCS determines the anisotropy of the minimum position r/sub m/ of the HeSF/sub 6/ interaction; damping of the rainbow determines the anisotropy of the well depth epsilon of the NeSF/sub 6/ interaction. Consistency between the systems verifies the accuracy of themore » resulting HeSF/sub 6/ and NeSF/sub 6/ potentials.« less
