Subject line: August GCRC announcements
Date: August 26th and 29th, 2008

We have a few announcements, including one action item: a survey on regional research needs (see below). Also keep in mind that we add new announcements every couple weeks to the Georgia Coastal Research Council homepage (www.gcrc.uga.edu). If you have something of note (a position vacancy, a progress report to share, etc), please let us know.

Sincerely, Janice Flory (on behalf of herself, and Merryl Alber and Christine Laporte)

1. Action Item: Research Needs Survey
2. Funding: Nat'l Coastal & Estuarine Research and Technology Program (NOAA)
3. Funding: Cooperative Research Progam (NOAA)
4. Upcoming Conference: 2009 Georgia Water Resources Conference
5. Sampling for Gorgonians

1. Survey on Coastal Research Needs We are inviting you to participate in a brief survey (10-15 minutes) to tell us which coastal issues are most important to you. The South Atlantic Regional Research Project (SARRP) is a joint effort by the Sea Grant programs in the four South Atlantic states (FL, GA, NC and SC). We are working with many regional partners and diverse coastal interests. This project is in concert with similar projects in other Sea Grant Regions across the US. The information you provide will be used in the development of a Research Action Plan for the South Atlantic region that will focus research on the most pressing issues and most promising opportunities along our coast. We would greatly appreciate your help in identifying which research issues you consider most important. To take the survey (or for more information), please visit: www.gcrc.uga.edu/SARRP/sarrp_survey.html On behalf of our coastal resources and broad community, we are very grateful for your time and consideration. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Christine Laporte, SARRP Project Coordinator claporte@uga.edu or David Bryant, bryantd@uga.edu.

2. Funding Opportunity: Nat'l Coastal & Estuarine Research and Technology Program (NOAA) The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) seeks to establish a national estuarine research and technology program which operates in partnership with the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS). Funds will be used to conduct collaborative research and transform the best available science into practical innovative tools that coastal managers can use to detect, prevent, and reverse the impacts of coastal pollution and habitat degradation. Additionally, the program will provide coastal and estuarine managers a better understanding of what tools are available, how well they work, and how best to apply them to detect, prevent, and reverse the impacts of coastal pollution and habitat degradation. Deadline: September 9, 2008. For more information, search for NOS-OCRM-2009-2001493 at Grants.gov (http://www07.grants.gov/search/basic.do)

3. Funding Opportunity: Cooperative Research Program (NOAA) The CRP program provides financial assistance for projects that seek to increase and improve the working relationship between researchers from the National Marine Fisheries Service , state fishery agencies, universities, and fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico and off the South Atlantic states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida involving the U.S. fishing industry (recreational and commercial). The program is a means of involving commercial and recreational fishermen in the collection of fundamental fisheries information. Collection efforts support the development and evaluation of management and regulatory options. Deadline: September 9, 2008. For more information, search for NMFS-SE-2009-2001417 at Grants.gov (http://www07.grants.gov/search/basic.do)

4. Conference: 2009 Georgia Water Resources Conference The Georgia Water Resources Conference has been held biennially since 1989, as a forum for discussing water quantity and quality issues in Georgia. The last conference (2007) was made possible by the efforts of over 60 session moderators, 250 speakers, 400 manuscript reviewers, and 40 students who helped with the sessions during the conference, as well as the conference steering committee and 20+ program committee members. The next conference will be held April 27-29, 2009 at the Center for Continuing Education, University of Athens, Georgia. Submissions will be accepted beginning August 7, 2008 and registration begins September 1, 2008. For more information, visit the GWRC website (http://www.gwrc2009.com/).

5. We hope that someone on this listserv will be able to assist Dr. Kingsley with her request for samples (see copied email below).  Please contact her directly if you can help.  Feel free to forward this request, as appropriate.

I am a faculty member of the Biology Department at the University of Richmond.  I conduct research on the gorgonian Leptogorgia virgulata.  I am interested in doing a class project that would require specimens collected at varying locations.  I typically get my specimens at Duke Marine Lab.  Would it be possible to get a few live branches from your neck of the woods?
Thanks for your help.
