Request for proposal: ocean acidification and hypoxia research, monitoring, and communications

The Oregon Ocean Science Trust (OOST), in consultation with the Oregon Coordinating Council on Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (OAH Council), requests proposals for strategic research, monitoring, and communications to address ocean acidification and/or hypoxia. Subsequent to the passage of a funding bill (HB 3114) by the Oregon Legislature, the State of Oregon has provided about $1,000,000 to priority actions from the Oregon Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Action Plan 2019-2025. Strategic investments are necessary to address the risks and vulnerabilities caused by OAH that threaten Oregon’s economy and ecosystems.


Oregon’s coastal communities and economies depend on a thriving marine ecosystem. However, ocean acidification and hypoxia (OAH) are endangering Oregon’s ocean resources. The State of Oregon is committed to understanding, actively adapting to, and mitigating OAH, which requires strategic investments of funding. To address the risks and vulnerabilities caused by OAH, the state legislature and the Governor adopted the Oregon Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Action Plan 2019-2025 (the OAH Action Plan) and committed funding to guide State response efforts. Because Oregon is one of the first places to experience the impacts of OAH globally, these actions will help demonstrate that local actions are meaningful in fighting the global challenges of climate and ocean changes.
