Marine Institute call on Ocean Acidification and BiogeochemistryExternal

Call Overview

Call Category: Proposals

Opening: July 29, 2016
Closing: September 15, 2016

The Marine Institute is pleased to launch a call for proposals under the topic of Ocean Acidification and Biogeochemistry.  Sustainable exploitation of Ireland’s extensive marine resource as envisaged in Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth is predicated on conserving a healthy and productive marine environment.This project aims to build national capacity in Ireland for ocean acidification/biogeochemical research and observation and to study trends and variability in biogeochemical parameters to which potentially sensitives ecosystems are exposed. 

Building on work carried out under previously funded projects, the Marine Institute wishes to invite research proposals from organisations within the island of Ireland to further develop the national capacity for carrying out high quality measurements of the marine carbonate system and related parameters and play a lead role in enhancing a national observational capacity. Proposals should address the objectives identified in the Terms of Reference.
