OAP Director participates in workshop focused on expanding ocean acidification stakeholders in Latin America

March 17th, 2018

OAP Director, Libby Jewett, will participate in and present at a workshop focused on expanding ocean acidification stakeholders in Latin America. The workshop will take place in Santa Marta, Colombia March 17th-22nd. Dr. Jewett will be presenting both the overview of the science of Ocean Acidification (OA) and its implications for our world's oceans and an introduction to the work of the Global OA Observing Network which she co-chairs.

California lawmakers take aim at ocean acidification

California lawmakers take aim at ocean acidification

California Sea Grant

Seaweeds and seagrasses have potential to mitigate some effects of ocean acidification, according to a new report presented to the California state legislature earlier this month. The report was supported by the Ocean Protection Council. California Sea Grant Extension Specialist Joe Tyburczy, who is based at Humboldt State University, served on the working group that wrote the report.

Mid-Atlantic Ocean Acidification Graduate Fellowship Opportunity

Ocean Acidification Program and Sea Grant

The Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant Programs in partnership with the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program, are pleased to announce the availability of Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowships for a two-year period covering the 2018 and 2019 academic years. The fellowship is open to full-time graduate students at any academic institution in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Virginia who are engaged in coastal and marine research relevant to regional ocean, coastal, and estuarine acidification. The focus should be on improving understanding of the potential ecological consequences of increasing carbon dioxide concentration in regional coastal waters. Projects may encompass natural and/or social science research topics.

Proposals are being accepted through 5:00 pm ET on Friday, April 13, 2018 via eSeaGrant.  

This announcement and additional information can be found on each state Sea Grant program’s website.

Ocean acidification poses new concern for San Francisco Bay water

Ocean acidification poses new concern for San Francisco Bay water

San Francisco State University

Visitors to the Tiburon shoreline may notice a new addition to the seascape — a five-foot tall, bright yellow buoy anchored just offshore San Francisco State University’s Estuary and Ocean Science (EOS) Center. The Bay Ocean Buoy (BOB) and its companion mooring for Marine Acidification Research Inquiry (MARI) bring together researchers at SF State, the University of California, Davis and several other partner organizations and funders. It represents the first effort to perform long-term scientific monitoring of ocean acidity and carbon dioxide in the waters of the Bay.

MIT Sea Grant Annual Request for Pre-Proposals

MIT Sea Grant

In 2019 MIT Sea Grant will focus our funding resources on the following specific areas of marine research:

(1)   Aquaculture Technologies: Based on data gathered in our constituent meeting on November 30, 2017, MIT Sea Grant created a new focus area for research on novel technologies to enable offshore aquaculture.
(2)   Ocean Acidification: MIT Sea Grant will focus funding research on ocean monitoring using physics-based data inference, buoy data, and fusing diverse sources of data, e.g. at least two of satellite data, data from drifters.  The target is to demonstrate such a computer monitoring system for the Boston Harbor or the Gulf of Maine.
(3)   Underwater Wireless Power Transmission and Data Communication:  MIT Sea Grant will focus funding on research that delivers a laboratory prototype for wireless energy transfer to exceed 1 kW, and/or a prototype for data transmission underwater in highly stratified environment targeting distances of the order of 100m.

An informational meeting for year’s RFP was held at MIT Sea Grant on Thursday, January 25 2018 to provide guidance for interested applicants. A recording of that meeting can be found on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvRUt6lkYKw

For more information, important dates, and eligibility requirements, see the MIT Sea Grant RFP website.
