This program was originally solicited in the Federal Register on July 11, 2008, as part of the July 2008 NOAA Omnibus solicitation.

NOAA is publishing this notice to provide clarification regarding funding availability for the Modeling the Causes of Hypoxia component of the Northern Gulf of Mexico


Please note that funds for Modeling the Causes of Hypoxia component of the Northern Gulf of Mexico Ecosystems and Hypoxia Assessment program will not exceed $1,000,00 0. 00 per project per year.

It is anticipated that only one project will be awarded for this program with project durations of 3 to 5 years.

All other requirements for this solicitation remain the same.Original Funding Opportunity DescriptionThe purpose of this opportunity is to advise the public that NOAA/NOS/NCCOS/CSCOR is soliciting proposals for two separate programs.

Program 1 is the Regional Ecosystem Prediction Program on Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies (CRES) From Science to Conservation:
Linking Coral Reefs, Coastal Watersheds and their Human Communities in the Pacific Islands.

Projects under this program will be 3 to 5 years in duration.

The goal of this funding opportunity is to utilize existing scientific tools and approaches (e.g., biophysical models; coupled watershed and hydrodynamic models) within a social, cultural, and economic framework to develop and implement effective coastal ecosystem management practices in the Pacific Islands.

Proposals should be regional in scale, interdisciplinary, comprehensive, integrated, and include multiple investigators to develop capabilities for innovative forecasts and predictions for improved management and control capabilities.

Program 2 is the Northern Gulf of Mexico Ecosystems and Hypoxia Assessment Program (NGOMEX).

NGOMEX has two components.

The Modeling the Causes of Hypoxia component takes a regional ecosystem prediction approach to advance model development assessing the association between the northern Gulf hypoxic zone and causative factors.

The proposed research for this competition should be 3-5 years in duration.

The Modeling the Impacts of Hypoxia component takes an ecosystem stressors approach to advance understanding of hypoxia on ecologically and commercially important living resource populations of the northern Gulf of Mexico ecosystem.

Funds for the Modeling the Causes of Hypoxia component of the Northern Gulf of Mexico Ecosystems and Hypoxia Assessment program will not exceed $1,000,000 per project per year.

These projects should be 3 to 5 years of duration.

Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2009 Federal appropriations.

It is anticipated that final recommendations for funding under this announcement will be made by February 2009 and that projects funded under this announcement will have a July 1, 2009 through August 1, 2009 start date.
