Pre-proposal Deadline Approaching for NOAA RESTORE Science Program Competition on Long-term Trends

The deadline for submitting a pre-proposal to the NOAA RESTORE Science Program’s funding competition on long-term trends is rapidly approaching! This competition invites applications that propose to identify, track, understand, and/or predict trends and variability in the Gulf of Mexico’s living coastal and marine resources and the processes driving them. Applicants must propose work that addresses this priority in one or more of these areas of emphasis: 1) exploring trends in multiple species, 2) investigating the link between weather and/or climate and trends, and 3) examining the relationship between trends and economic activity.
