NOAA Announces FY22 Multi-stressor Federal Funding Opportunity

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.

Climate Scientists Predict Rapid Increase in High-Tide Flooding for Majority of U.S. Coastlines in the Next Decade 20 July 2021

Climate Scientists Predict Rapid Increase in High-Tide Flooding for Majority of U.S. Coastlines in the Next Decade

The combined effects of sea-level rise and natural fluctuations in tidal range are anticipated to cause tipping points in the frequency of high-tide flooding. These tipping points can produce acute impacts in underserved communities, who are often unprepared to deal with the consequences.
