Multi-year awards to focus on sea level rise, hypoxia and harmful algal blooms
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science will award $10.44 million over the next five years for 10 projects to address sea level rise, hypoxia and harmful algal blooms (HABs).
Among the projects the 10 awards will support are:
coastal lowland habitat research in California;
understanding and mitigating sea level rise and storm surge impacts on changing coastal landscapes;
bloom forecasting in the Pacific Northwest, aiding the management of shellfish fisheries, public clam beaches and human health
reducing the effects of nutrient-induced hypoxia on fishery and natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico;
development of a hypoxia forecast for Lake Erie, which will warn drinking-water managers when hypoxic water is moving into their vicinity.
