The NOAA Undersea Research Center at the University of North Carolina Wilmington seeks proposals for undersea research projects to be conducted in 2008 and 2009 off the southeast U.S. from North Carolina to Texas. Projects are selected by peer review based on scientific merit, feasibility, and relevance to NOAA's mission and the topics presented below. Proposals may be written for one year (opportunity 1) or two years (opportunity 2) of direct science support of $75,000 per year and should contain an in situ field component. Undersea system and support vessel time is provided by the Center at no cost to the principal investigator.

This announcement is soliciting proposals for TWO specific funding opportunities. All proposals are strongly encouraged to involve industry, address how data will be disseminated to user communities (e.g., resource managers) and need to have broad scientific and societal impact.
