MUREP/SMD Research Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OCEAN)
In support of NASA’s ocean-focused research, the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP)/Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Research Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OCEAN) activity is established to strengthen and develop the research capacity and infrastructure of Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) in areas of strategic importance and value to NASA’s mission and national priorities. Overall, OCEAN awards seek to improve understanding of the structure and function of global aquatic ecosystems, their interactions with the atmosphere, terrestrial and cryospheric systems, and the ocean’s role in the cycling of the major biogeochemical elements. This is done by enhancing the capability of institutions to participate in funding opportunities, such as Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES), and to support the Agency’s advancement of science to achieve a deep scientific understanding of our planet. Proposals are sought from MSIs that will...
