Grant Name:

Two-year time-series study of seasonal coastal hypoxia

  • Date Awarded:
    Sep 2008
  • Amount:
  • Term:
    36 months
  • Grant ID:
  • Funding Area:

To support characterization of the microbial responses to two distinct seasonal oxygen minimum zone environments and to establish the geological history of oxygenation at each site. The proposed effort aims to describe the chemical and physical nature of seasonal oxygen minimum zones off the coasts of central Chile and Oregon, to identify similarities and differences between their pelagic microbial assemblages and biogeochemical processes, and to determine the long-term variability of oxygenation in these regions. The conclusions will be synthesized in an inter-disciplinary manner across the fields of marine microbial ecology, physical oceanography, biogeochemistry and paleoceanography.
