The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) invites proposals for research projects that address one or more of the following environmental concerns within the Southeast US region:
- Harmful algal blooms
- Sound in the marine environment
- Coral health
Funding will be provided for one to two 12-month projects that will improve understanding of these environmental concerns. Projects should address a key gap in scientific understanding, technology, or data. Observations may be physical, bio-optical, chemical, or acoustic with the intent to integrate with SECOORA’s observational, modeling, and/or data management sub-systems.
Proposals must significantly involve stakeholders for the environmental concern being addressed. Grant awards will range between $5,000 and $30,000 with an estimated 1 to 2 awards provided. Federal agencies and federal employees are not allowed to apply for funding.
Proposals are due via email to Jennifer Dorton (email@example.com) by April 15, 2019.
