The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/NOS/National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS)/Competitive Research Program (CRP) [formerly Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research/Coastal Ocean Program] is soliciting proposals for the Coastal Hypoxia Research Program (CHRP). This solicitation is to improve the understanding of physical/biogeochemical effects of hypoxia and potential synergies with other stressors on living resources, habitats, and food webs. This information will enable proactive management to address current and future changes in habitat and species composition due to hypoxia.
