Pacific Islands Graduate Fellowship: Ocean acidification research and resilience

Letters of Intent due Dec. 14th, 2021, Full applications due March 11th, 2022

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is supporting a competitive graduate fellowship that will support students conducting research, in pursuit of a Masters degree, related to ocean acidification (OA) in the Pacific Islands region to help fill a critical gap in capacity for OA research and monitoring in the region. OAP is seeking to fund students who would contribute to the body of knowledge on regional vulnerabilities to OA and potential solutions to build greater resilience against the impacts of OA. Successful applicants will conduct research that addresses physical/chemical oceanographic, biological, and/or socioeconomic questions and concepts. This funding call is part of a broader initiative, which involves multiple international scientific networks and capacity building organizations.

The goals of this fellowship are to (A) support early-career scientists who will provide the Pacific Islands region with ocean acidification research expertise, and (B) provide Pacific Island countries and communities with additional knowledge, information, and resources, which can be used to build greater resilience against acidification and its impacts. Please see Section III. Eligibility Information for a list of the prioritized Pacific Island countries.​ Subject to the availability of funding, OAP anticipates up to $300,000 USD total will be available to support approximately 3-6 graduate fellows, with each fellow funded at the approximate level of $20,000 - $32,000 USD per year for 2 years. Each award is intended to fund the fellow’s tuition, stipend, research budget, and/or other costs associated with completing a 2-year Masters degree program.

Informational webinar recording, presentation slides, and answers to FAQs are here. The full opportunity can be found here.  Letters of Intent due Dec. 14th, 2021.

Funding Opportunity: Integrated Research on Coastal and Ocean Acidification (OA) and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

Letters of Intent due October 14th, 2021

NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal and Ocean Science Competitive Research Program (NCCOS/CRP) and Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) are pleased to announce a Fiscal Year 2022 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Integrated Research on Coastal and Ocean Acidification (OA) and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

NOAA is soliciting proposals to address the science needs identified in the Ocean Acidification and Harmful Algal Blooms: Defining a Research Agenda virtual workshop held in August 2020 (Website and Report). Proposals should address the growing need to understand interactions between OA and HABs and their cascading impacts to US coastal and Great Lakes ecosystems, communities, and economies to inform management decisions. 

A letter of intent is required. The deadline for letters of intent is October 14, 2021; and full applications are due January 19, 2022.

The full announcement can be found here.

Funding Opportunity: Coastal and Ocean Modeling Testbed Project

Full proposals due Friday, February 26, 2021

The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System is seeking to fund projects which advance new or existing solutions that address long standing and emerging coastal modeling and forecast product development challenges. This announcement specifically funds activities needed to progress through the transitional stages from research toward full operations (such as system integration, testing, validation, and verification).

The priorities of  this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) are summarized as follows: 

  • Improving parameterizations of coastal physics in community models

  • Coupling the National Water Mode​l (Office of Water Prediction)  with ocean circulation models to understand and predict the combined effects of land processes (riverine input/land runoff) and ocean circulation (wind/waves/tides) on coastal inundation, sediment transport and water quality in the coastal zone

  • Approaches to improve performance, speed, or accuracy of data assimilation algorithms

  • Model evaluation and/or  development of acceptance metrics for operational models

  • Finding efficient approaches to transition ecosystem models (including, but not limited to, ocean acidification, harmful algal bloom (HAB), hypoxia, and pathogens) for incorporation into existing physical modeling frameworks

Investigators are highly encouraged to visit the U.S. IOOS Coastal and Ocean Modeling Testbed website for more information about the Testbed: https://ioos.noaa.gov/project/COMT/ and https://ioos.us/comt/.

Full proposals must be received no later than 11:59 PM Eastern on Friday, 26 February 2021

Funding Opportunity: Addressing the impacts of multiple stressors on shellfish aquaculture through research/industry partnerships

LETTERS OF INTENT DUE DECEMBER 15th, 2020

NOAA’s National Sea Grant Office and Ocean Acidification Program provided an overview & answers to FAQs for the recently announced funding opportunity tounderstand how acidification and other stressors will impact shellfish aquaculture on November 9th at 2pm EST (11amPST). A recording and answers to frequently asked questions be found here:https://seagrant.noaa.gov/Funding

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.

Topics suitable under this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) should aim to: 

(1)  build or strengthen relationships between the shellfish aquaculture industry and the aquaculture research community (including university, industry, private sector, tribal, state, and/or federal scientists representing diverse perspectives)

(2) develop scientific knowledge on the impact of ocean and coastal acidification in combination with other stressors to shellfish aquaculture; and

 (3) create data products, tools, technologies, management practices, or other deliverables that are broadly applicable to building resilience within the shellfish aquaculture sector. 

Pending appropriation of funds, NOAA’s National Sea Grant Office and Ocean Acidification Program anticipates awarding between two and six projects totaling $200,000 dollars per year. Projects must be between 1-3 years in duration.

Letters of Intent are due December 15th, 2020. Questions about the content of and information about the status of your submission can be directed to: Attn: Rebecca Certner, Competitions Manager oar.hq.sg.aquaculture@noaa.gov or Erica Ombres (erica.h.ombres@noaa.gov)
