Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)

Ocean Conditions

13 year time series of zooplankton sampling off Newport shows that monthly anomalies of copepod species richness are correlated with the PDO

As with SST, there are time lags of a few months between the 4-year “cold periods” and “warm periods”. Cold periods are characterized by “cold water” copepods and warm periods by “warm water” copepods

2010 summary
2010 Summary
  • Early El Nino and positive PDO – but not very big
2010 summary1
2010 Summary
  • Early El Nino and positive PDO – but not very big
  • Warm ocean in winter but turned around by late spring (maybe a little too late to help)
2010 summary2
2010 Summary
  • Early El Nino and positive PDO – but not very big
  • Warm ocean in winter but turned around by late spring (maybe a little too late to help)
  • Not a good spring for spring Chinook, chum, sockeye, coho, and steelhead
2010 summary3
2010 Summary
  • Early El Nino and positive PDO – but not very big
  • Warm ocean in winter but turned around by late spring (maybe a little too late to help)
  • Not a good spring for spring Chinook, chum, sockeye, coho, and steelhead
  • Summer was anomalously cool (negative PDO)– good for fall Chinook
what do we expect in 20111
What do we expect in 2011

Continued La Nina, negative PDO, and cool ocean conditions – Good salmon marine survival

what do we expect in 20112
What do we expect in 2011

Continued La Nina, negative PDO, and cool ocean conditions – Good salmon marine survival

Relatively high spring flows – also good for marine survival (larger plume)

what do we expect in 20113
What do we expect in 2011

Continued La Nina, negative PDO, and cool ocean conditions – Good salmon marine survival

Relatively high spring flows – also good for marine survival (larger plume)

Fewer sardines – they like warm ocean

what do we expect in 20114
What do we expect in 2011

Continued La Nina, negative PDO, and cool ocean conditions – Good salmon marine survival

Relatively high spring flows – also good for marine survival (larger plume)

Fewer sardines – they like warm ocean

More anchovy, smelt, and herring – cool species

what do we expect in 20115
What do we expect in 2011

Continued La Nina, negative PDO, and cool ocean conditions – Good salmon marine survival

Relatively high spring flows – also good for marine survival (larger plume)

Fewer sardines – they like warm ocean

More anchovy, smelt, and herring – cool species

More large copepods – food for things that Chinook and coho eat and food for sockeye and chum salmon
