GRANT SUMMARY

The National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Coastal Ocean Program, the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Division of Ocean Sciences, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Office of Research and Development, National Center for Environmental Research and Quality Assurance, and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) announce an opportunity to conduct process-related field research, modeling, and laboratory studies on Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). The Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) Program will support coordinated, well-integrated, interdisciplinary process-oriented field studies by research teams. Individual studies will also be supported to develop predictive models and address gaps in knowledge related to mechanisms that regulate harmful algal species. A total of about $3 million is anticipated for FY 1997 and each of the following four years, contingent on appropriations. Additional funds may be made available to support this program through the National Ocean Partnership Program, administered by the Office of Naval Research. The majority of funding will support interdisciplinary process-oriented field studies by research teams. Up to three integrated, interdisciplinary field studies and up to 10 individual projects are anticipated. Final selections will be made by May 15, 1997, for projects to begin in summer 1997. NOAA will act as the lead agency for the ECOHAB program via the Coastal Ocean Program.
