NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program seeks to better prepare society to respond to changing ocean conditions and resources by expanding understanding of ocean acidification, through interdisciplinary partnerships, nationally and internationally. Ocean acidification is occurring because our ocean is absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, leading to lower pH and greater acidity. This is causing a fundamental change in the chemistry of the ocean from pole to pole.
The Ocean Acidification Program and National Sea Grant Office are now accepting letters of intent for projects to bolster understanding of how acidification and other stressors will impact shellfish aquaculture by seeking applications that establish, continue, and/or expand collaborations between researchers and the shellfish aquaculture industry. Letters of intent are due December 15th, 2020.
