AOOS is now accepting project proposal ideas for financial support in the range of $10,000 up to $100,000. These funds will be used for subsidizing new ocean observations on existing projects, purchasing equipment for observing efforts, or helping to implement new projects. Project length can be one to five years.

The use of such funds needs to fall within the definition of “coastal resilience” as defined by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): “Coastal resilience means building the ability of a community to “bounce back” after hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and flooding – rather than simply reacting to impacts.”

For more information on this proposal process, AOOS will host an informational webinar on Friday, 29 September 2023 at 10:00 a.m. AKDT, which will be recorded.

Proposal submission deadline: 30 October 2023
