Funding Opportunity Description:

The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/NOS/NCCOS/CSCOR is soliciting proposals for research under its Regional Ecosystem Prediction Program theme focused on the impacts of ocean acidification on key fish and shellfish species and their supporting ecosystems in US coastal and estuarine waters. CSCOR is accepting proposals which are focused on the development of modeling and prediction tools to determine population-, community-, and ecosystemlevel effects of increasing ocean acidification in marine and estuarine systems. As a component of developing the necessary understanding of ecological processes and linkages, physiological research on targeted species or groups of ecologically related species may be included. Proposals must target or be relevant to US commercial and/or recreational fishery species. It is anticipated that final recommendations for funding under this announcement will be made by mid Calendar Year 2012 with a start date of September 1, 2012. Total funding for this research: approximately $1.5 million over 3 years, depending on final appropriations. Funding limits for individual projects are approximately $200,000 to $400,000 per year lasting up to 3 years. Projects may include ship time above these limits. Requests for ship time costs will be evaluated in light of overall project goals.
