NOAA OAP selects, funds, and manages high priority, high-quality research, monitoring, and outreach activities to understand how fast the acidification is changing, and impacts these changes have on marine life, people, and economies. Check out some of the 2023 accomplishment highlights.
Today is January 8th marking a global “OA Day of Action” started by the Ocean Foundation to increase ocean acidification awareness and recognize 8.1, the current global average pH of the ocean. To recognize this day, NOAA OAP is proud to be launch an ocean acidification communications project with the Aquarium Conservation Partnership and International Alliance to Combat Ocean
A Roadmap for the other National Ocean Acidification Action Plans The United States released the U.S. Ocean Acidification (OA) Action Plan during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) on December 10, 2023. This side event was co-hosted by NOAA Ocean Acidification Program, U.S. Department of State, and International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification (‘OA
The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP), in partnership with the Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program is soliciting proposals to optimize sampling strategies that improve carbonate chemistry observing systems co-developed with an observing data product end user. The products can inform real-time data delivery and forecasting of ocean acidification relevant parameters. The optimization design
The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program on behalf of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) announces $24.3M of funding aimed at bringing together academic researchers, federal scientists and industry to advance research in marine carbon dioxide removal. Funding supports research that expands understanding of various aspects of marine carbon dioxide removal approaches, risks and co-benefits including
The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is pleased to announce the launch of the FY24 Education Mini-grant Program! The principal objective of this grant opportunity is to provide federal financial assistance to develop ocean and coastal acidification education tools and programs in underserved and/or Indigenous communities or Tribes. To learn more about this federal funded opportunity,
NOAA”s Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) advances ocean acidification science, education and outreach. The needs of audiences around the nation grows with the advancement of our knowledge. We will assess stakeholder needs nationwide via listening sessions to identify gaps, priorities, and the ways in which we can support people impacted by ocean and coastal acidification. The
Ocean Acidification Coastal Research: Uniting Investigations and Shipboard Experiments (OA CRUISE) Funding Opportunity
NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting cruise project proposals to complement core observing activities on existing cruises as part of its upcoming coastal ocean acidification (OA) cruises targeting the US Coastal Large Marine Ecosystems. The proposed activities should provide for expanded OA observational and experimental capabilities of repeated oceanographic research cruises to better achieve the strategic aims of the program.
COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE, GOA-ON HUB, AND COASTAL ACIDIFICATION NETWORK There is a significant need to strengthen capacity for research, monitoring, and adaptive solutions for ocean acidification resilience and associated multi-stressors in the Caribbean region. The Caribbean Ocean Acidification Community of Practice (CoP) endeavors to explore the impacts of ocean acidification on important ocean and coastal areas,
Assistant Research Scientist/Faculty Specialist position to support NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information
The University of Maryland / Cooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (UMD/CISESS) seeks a talented and self-motivated candidate to start a new and promising career supporting the research, development, and transition projects funded by the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). Specifically, the scientist will support ocean acidification data management data product development, generate gridded coastal and global ocean data products by using NCEI’s World Ocean Atlas tools (Fortran based), support data management activities for shipboard data, and collaborate with NOAA scientists.
