Research Area(s): Coastal Change

NCCOS awarded nearly $4.5 million in new research grants while maintaining sponsorship of 42 continuing projects during 2015 for a total of $8.2 million in funding for innovative research. All of the endeavorsaddress significant and complex coastal issues. The projects were selected using a rigorous, competitive, and peer-review process.

The cutting-edge research will provide critical coastal intelligence and predictive capabilities for integrating science and management in support of resilient and healthy coastal communities. These new projects continue to advance NOAA priorities in three areas: (1) improving observation, forecasting, and mitigation of harmful algal blooms and hypoxia, (2) supporting coastal communities facing changing sea levels, coastal flooding, anddetermining the economic value of natural infrastructure, and (3) expanding capacity for predicting ocean acidification impacts.

Harmful Algal Blooms and Hypoxia ($2.1 million awarded)

Coastal Community Resilience: Sea Levels, Flooding, and Natural Infrastructure ($1.1 million awarded)

Ocean Acidification ($1.3 million awarded)
