NCCOS Implements Fourteen New Sponsored Research Projects, Totaling Over $5.7 Million

In Fiscal Year 2011, the National Ocean Service’s  National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) has provided nearly $5.8M sponsoring 14 new research projects under 6 different research programs. Projects were selected through a rigorous, competitive, peer-review process.

This cutting-edge research will provide the critical information and predictive capabilities required to manage the Nation’s coastal resources in an ecosystem context.

In addition, NCCOS sponsors 36 continuing projects under 10 different research program areas for an overall FY 2011 funding total of about $16.5M.  NCCOS’s programs and projects support NOAA’s Strategic Plan goals of (1) climate adaptation and mitigation, (2) healthy oceans, and (3) resilient coastal communities and economies.  In addition, these NCCOS activities support the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science Strategic Plan priorities of (1) harmful algal blooms, (2) coastal pollution, (3) climate impacts and (4) coastal and marine spatial planning.
