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 should be geared towards delivering data required to support the end user’s specific decision support needs.
Applicants should submit proposals not to exceed $500,000 per year for projects generally 2-3 years in duration, with a total multi-year budget not to exceed $1,500,000 (Option 1.a.: Up to $350,000 per year for three years; Option 1.b.: Up to $200,000 per year for three years; Option 2: Up to $500,000 per year for three years). Should funds become available for this program, up to approximately $4,000,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2024 for the first year. We anticipate funding 2-5 projects with expected start dates of September 1, 2024. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Federal appropriations.
