M.S. Level Position focused on “Identifying Factors that May Exacerbate Coastal Acidification in Pacific Northwest Estuaries”

US EPA

The position is through Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and is with the U.S. Environmental Protection, National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory located in Newport, Oregon on the campus of the Hatfield Marine Science Center. 

This individual selected for this position will work on a research project focused on identifying the causes of coastal acidification in Pacific Northwest estuaries and the coastal ocean.  Specifically, we are tracking the watershed and oceanic inputs of nitrogen and carbon to Tillamook Estuary through field sampling of nutrients, stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon (of nitrate, ammonia, dissolved inorganic and organic carbon, and particulate organic carbon) with the goal of identifying local factors which are influencing carbonate chemistry and oxygen dynamics within the estuary.

To protect marine life, NOAA monitoring seasonal and yearly changes in surface water pH in Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

To protect marine life, NOAA monitoring seasonal and yearly changes in surface water pH in Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

NOAA Climate Program Office

Since atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions began to increase after the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of the ocean’s surface waters has increased by 30%. This rising acidity—reflected in falling pH levels—harms shell-building creatures and other marine life. As part of their effort to protect our oceans and the communities that depend on them, NOAA scientists have developed a way to visualize and monitor monthly and yearly changes in surface water pH in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

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.
