On October 29, CPO’s Marine Ecosystem Risk Team (MERT) is making a presentation to the NOS Coastal Science Board. The presentation will introduce MERT and describe the outcomes and ongoing activities of its Science for Sanctuaries Initiative, aiming to increase cross-NOAA collaborations to advance NOAA's stewardship mission.
The Marine Ecosystem Risk Team has been recognized by NOS for outstanding leadership.
The survey allows CPO's Marine Ecosystem Risk Team (MERT) to ensure that it is working with sanctuaries in meaningful and useful ways that help sanctuary staff and managers, thus maximizing the value of the CPO-NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries relationship.
NOAA is soliciting proposals to increase our understanding of the combined impacts of multiple stressors, including harmful algal blooms, deoxygenation, ocean acidification, and increasing temperatures, on the function and health of marine ecosystems within the context of climate change. NOAA expects to fund 1–2 projects for up to four years in duration, with an approximate annual budget of $1 million, not to exceed $4 million in total.
