The latest Office of Ocean Exploration & Research (OER) federal funding opportunity has been published, and it is Arctic-focused. OER seeks to enhance ocean exploration and scientific knowledge in the Arctic by encouraging use of the rich Arctic data set collected in support of the U.S. Extended Continental Shelf (ECS) Project.
OER challenges applicants to propose multi-partner interdisciplinary exploration projects that will capitalize and build on these Arctic ECS data, and target the mapped areas in new ways, using innovative technologies to inform some of 's most pressing Arctic marine science needs, and stewardship responsibilities, pursuant to 's Arctic Vision and Strategy.
