Funding Opportunity Announcement! (Please distribute further as 
Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies FY 2007
NOAA's Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) is soliciting 
proposals that seek a better understanding of the underlying processes 
that regulate coral reefs and associated ecosystems.  Findings from this 
research must directly support resource management decisions and involve 
the use of predictive models.
Program Priorities:
1. Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies (CRES) -- CSCOR is interested in a 
large-scale regional ecosystem study of the West Florida Shelf (WFS).  
CSCOR will give consider proposals that address more than one key 
environmental issue (e.g., hypoxia, fisheries, watershed-based impacts, 
etc.) that are critical to the WFS Ecosystem in an integrated framework 
that will provide recommendations for alternative management 
strategies.  Coordination with planned or ongoing research on the WFS is 
strongly encouraged.  Preference will be given to proposals that also 
address social and economic aspects throughout their research 
framework.  One project is expected to be funded at no more that $1M/yr 
for up to 5 years.
2. Deep-water Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies (DeepCRES) -- CSCOR continues 
its interest in research that focuses deep water (50 -- 100 m) 
hermatypic coral reefs.  The target area extends to the Pacific Islands 
associated with under jurisdiction of the United States.  Proposals 
should address research that looks at regulating processes, examines 
potential of deep reefs as refugia, assesses their vulnerability to 
human disturbance, and examines potential management strategies.  One 
project incorporating one or more Pacific Islands is expected to be 
funded at no more than $500K/yr for up to 3 years.
