From space to the sea floor: a deeper look at ocean acidification along the East Coast

From space to the sea floor: a deeper look at ocean acidification along the East Coast

NOAA OCEAN ACIDIFICATION PROGRAM

What if satellites circling our blue planet from space could offer insight into how an invisible gas like carbon dioxide moves through coastal waters, hundreds of miles above the ocean’s surface? Scientists will be working to make this a reality as they travel from Nova Scotia to Florida on board NOAA ship Henry B. Bigelow to understand what is driving changes in our ocean’s chemistry.

NOAA RESTORE Funding Competition on Long Term Trends

NOAA RESTORE Science Program

The priority for this competition is identifying, tracking, understanding, and/or predicting trends and variability in the Gulf of Mexico’s living coastal and marine resources and the processes driving them.

Applicants must propose work that addresses this priority in one or more of these areas of emphasis: 1) exploring trends in multiple species, 2) investigating the link between weather and/or climate and trends, and 3) examining the relationship between trends and economic activity.

To receive funding, applicants will need to directly address the needs of resource managers and have a clear plan for how their research findings or products will be used by resource managers. Applicants are encouraged to include resource managers on their project teams.

This competition is the Science Program’s first dedicated to supporting integrated, long-term projects. Pre-proposals, which are required, are due by July 30, 2018and the deadline for submitting a full application is October 29, 2018. Please see the full announcement for complete instructions on how to submit a pre-proposal and full application.

ACCRETE Internship Opportunity

NOAA/AOML and University of Miami's Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS)

ACCRETE (Acidification, Climate, and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team) at NOAA/AOML and theUniversity of Miami’s Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric
Sciences (CIMAS) is accepting applications for a one-year internship position, to be offered annually to a highly motivated recent college graduate interested in gaining experience in the fields of coral reef ecology and ocean acidification research.

ACCRETE is actively researching how climate change and ocean acidification will be, and already are affecting the construction (coral growth, calcification) and breakdown (bioerosion, dissolution) of coral reef ecosystems, as well as the associated ramifications these processes have for ecosystem function. The successful applicant will work with a diverse team of scientists, postdocs, and students at NOAA and UM laboratories in Miami, Florida.

During the year, the intern will gain extensive hands-on experience with laboratory and field research including, but not limited to, experiments
conducted in the CIMAS Experimental Reef Labanalysis of carbonate chemistry for ocean acidification research, scuba diving and fieldwork in the Florida Keys, involvement in the National Coral Reef Monitoring PlanCT scanning of coral and reef frameworks, as well as 3D scanning and printing for scientific instrument development.

The position will be supervised by Dr. Ian Enochs and at the conclusion of the year-long internship, the successful applicant will be expected to present a talk on their work. Current AAUS authorization is required for participation in scuba diving operations. The position will be paid hourly, totaling roughly $30k over the year.

Please send a CV and letter of interest to ian.enochs@noaa.gov, with “ACCRETE internship application” in the subject line. Applications must be received by June 9th.
