NOAA Awards First Installment of $2.5 Million Grant to University of Rhode Island to Study Hypoxia in Estuarine Ecosystems

NOAA has awarded the University of Rhode Island $1.5 million to develop modeling tools to predict low oxygen levels in upper Narragansett Bay, R.I. This award is the first installment of a five-year, approximately $2.5 million grant. This ecosystem-scale project aims to characterize and predict the oxygen dynamics within Narragansett Bay through coordinated, multidisciplinary studies […]
