South Atlantic Sea Grant programs — in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida — are seeking research proposals that quantify the impacts of flooding on access to infrastructure and the associated economic costs to coastal communities.
The deadline to submit proposals to present at the 2019 North Carolina Coastal Conference is now Sept. 6. North Carolina Sea Grant will host the event Nov. 19-20 at the Hotel Ballast in downtown Wilmington.
Scientists and community leaders will come together in Edenton on Aug. 24 to discuss harmful algal blooms in northeastern North Carolina. The program will include results from collaborative research funded by North Carolina’s Sea Grant and Water Resources Research Institute programs.
The 2019 North Carolina Coastal Conference will be Nov. 19 and 20 in Wilmington. Abstract proposal submissions are due Aug. 16 by 5 p.m. Sponsorship opportunities also available.
