NOAA RESTORE Science Program

The NOAA RESTORE Science Program’s funding competition for planning actionable science is now open. This competition will provide natural resource managers, researchers, and other stakeholders with funding to plan a research project that informs a specific management decision impacting natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico. The Science Program is making approximately $2.5 million available for this competition to fund approximately 20 planning projects that will run for one year each. Letters of intent, which are required, are due by September 29, 2020 and the deadline for submitting a full proposal is December 15, 2020. — more info about NOAA RESTORE Science Program

CERF 2021: Call for Scientific Session & Workshop Proposals

The Scientific Program Committee for the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation’s 2021 Conference  invites proposals for Special Scientific Sessions and Workshops. This conference will celebrate the golden 50th anniversary of CERF and reflect as we look forward to the next 50 years. Proposals are encouraged to promote interactions and discussions surrounding the conference theme: “CERF at 50: Celebrating Our Past, Charting Our Future.” The Committee expects to include topical sessions and workshops in the conference that span the fundamental fields of coastal science, including topics that are historically popular among the CERF membership. We are also announcing a new collaboration with the Estuarine and Coastal Modeling Conference, for which we greatly encourage submission of special sessions. The Session, Workshop, and Design Competition Team Proposals deadline is 21 October 2020. — more about CERF 2021

Scientific Diver Training

The Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) is now accepting applications for the Spring 2020 scientific diver training course. LUMCON is at present the only American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) designated training facility in the State of Louisiana. Scientific diver certification is required by most academic and government agencies who utilize diving as a research tool for marine science including biology, chemistry, biomedical, engineering and geosciences, and for all diving work conducted in association with LUMCON. — more  info on LUMCON Scientific Diver Training
