Opportunity: Ocean Science Grants

The National Science Foundation has upcoming deadlines for several programs its Devision of Ocean Sciences.

 

The Full Proposal Target Date for Each Grant Topic is 16 February, 2016.

Biological Oceanography Grants

The Biological Oceanography Program supports research in marine ecology broadly defined: relationships among aquatic organisms and their interactions with the environments of the oceans or Great Lakes. Projects submitted to the program for consideration are often interdisciplinary efforts that may include participation by other OCE Programs. (See information provided under Related URLs below).

Physical Oceanography Grants

The Physical Oceanography Program supports research on a wide range of topics associated with the structure and movement of the ocean, with the way in which it transports various quantities, with the way the ocean's physical structure interacts with the biological and chemical processes within it, and with interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere, solid earth and ice that surround it.

Chemical Oceanography Grants

The Chemical Oceanography Program supports research into the chemical components, reaction mechanisms, and geochemical pathways within the ocean and at its interfaces with the solid earth and the atmosphere. Major emphases include: studies of material inputs to and outputs from marine waters; orthochemical and biological production and transformation of chemical compounds and phases within the marine system; and the determination of reaction rates and study of equilibria. The Program encourages research into the chemistry, distribution, and fate of inorganic and organic substances introduced into or produced within marine environments including those from estuarine waters to the deep sea.

Marine Geology and Geophysics Grants

The Marine Geology and Geophysics program supports research on all aspects of geology and geophysics of the ocean basins and margins, as well as the Great Lakes.

The Program includes:

• Structure, tectonic evolution and volcanic activity of the ocean basins, the continental margins, the mid-ocean ridges, and island arc systems
• Processes controlling exchange of heat and chemical species between seawater and ocean rocks
• Genesis, chemistry, and mineralogic evolution of marine sediments
• Processes controlling deposition, erosion and transport of marine sediments
• Past ocean circulation patterns and climates and
• Interactions of continental and marine geologic processes
