Funding Opportunities ...
Sea Grant program throughout the Northeast are accepting research
proposals through October 15th that address the issue of ocean
acidification: the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans,
caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. An
estimated 30–40% of the carbon dioxide released by humans into the
atmosphere dissolves into oceans, rivers and lakes. More at http://ow.ly/RM9bQ.

What Is New York Sea Grant? ...
New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York, is one of 33 university-based programs under the National Sea Grant College Program (NSGCP) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The NSGCP engages this network of the nation’s top universities in conducting scientific research, education, training and extension projects designed to foster science-based decisions about the use and conservation of our aquatic resources.
Through its statewide network of integrated services, NYSG has been promoting coastal vitality, environmental sustainability, and citizen awareness about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources since 1971.
