Deadline 15 May 2022.

The Ocean Acidification and other ocean Changes – Impacts and Solutions (OACIS) Initiative launches a call for research projects on the effects of ocean alkalinity enhancement on marine ecosystems and organisms. This information is crucially lacking for making informed policy decisions.

The call will seek to respond to key questions such as (non-exhaustive list):

  • Could ocean alkalinity enhancement trigger the deposition of calcium carbonate on plants and animals and if so, what are the consequences and how could it be avoided?
  • Could ocean alkalinity enhancement overcome the negative impacts of ocean acidification in naturally acidified locations?
  • What are the positive and/or negative impacts on shellfish and finfish aquaculture?

The pre-application form must be sent by 15 May 2022 to the following email address: oacis@fpa2.org.

If pre-application is shortlisted, you will be invited to submit a full application form along with a detailed budget. Applicants will be notified shortly after the 15 May deadline if they are invited to prepare a full proposal.
