Funding Opportunity

NSF: Ocean Acidification. Basic research concerning the nature, extent and impact of ocean acidification on oceanic environments in the past, present and future is required. Research challenges include:

- Understanding the geochemistry and biogeochemistry of ocean acidification;

- Understanding how ocean acidification interacts with biological, chemical and physical processes at the organismal level, and how such interactions impact ecosystems;

- Understanding how the earth system history informs our understanding of the effects of ocean acidification on the present day and future ocean.

Due 12/3/13. http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13586/nsf13586.htm?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&WT.mc_ev=click
