GLIN==> Funding Notice: NESDIS Ocean Remote Sensing Program



The Federal Register Notice announcing the availability of  NESDIS Ocean
Remote Sensing Program funding is now available at:

http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a010822c.html

Scroll down to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  Under
notices Ocean Remote Sensing is the second listing.

The program supports activities related to: 

(1) The application of satellite oceanographic data and information in
support of coastal and oceanic marine resources management (living and
non-living);

2) The application of satellite oceanographic data in fisheries and
critical ecosystems research or monitoring applications (e.g., marine
protected areas, essential fish habitat, early life recruitment and
survival, stock assessment, protected species, important socio-economic
interactions, and coral reefs);

3) Research leading to the development of innovative data archiving and
data management techniques that may significantly simplify and improve
user access to satellite oceanographic data, especially by users
employing Internet access and geographic information systems (GIS)
spatial analysis software technologies;

4) Research to increase the accuracy, precision and quantitative use of
satellite oceanographic data in coastal and ocean surface research
investigations (e.g., sea surface temperature, ocean color, ocean
surface winds, sea level and surface height, and sea surface
measurements derived from space borne synthetic aperture radar); 

5)Research supporting the development of future ocean sensing capable
U.S. satellite systems (e.g., the National Polar-Orbiting Operational
Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS)); and

6) Research leading to improved coastal and oceanic climatologies using
satellite oceanographic data.
