2nd Joint Call for Projects on Causes of Sargassum Blooms
This call for projects aims to provide pragmatic solutions to the sargassum stranding and enrich the knowledge on this phenomenon that affects more particularly the islands of the Caribbean. The call focuses on three themes:
- Construction of a common data set to feed the different hydrodynamic models
- Biological model of Sargassum for coupling
- Development of an integrative model coupling hydrodynamics and biology of Sargassum explaining the variability of Sargassum events
It is a joint call by the French National Research Agency (ANR), the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACYT), the Brazilian regional agencies of the state of Sao Paulo and Pernambuco (FAPESP and FACEPE), as well as the Dutch Research Council (NW0), for the funding of research consortia.
Opening September 2021. Deadline for submissions: November 2021
