In addition, the proposals are also encouraged to develop and integrate disciplinary perspectives and as well as utilize diverse approaches in the process of investigating the basic research areas, such as:

a) The interconnection between ocean acidification with oceanic biology, chemistry, physics, and geology

b) The consequences of ocean acidification on ecosystem health and function

c) The interpretation of the geologic record to hopefully reveal the history of climate change and the groups of organisms that have risen, persisted, or declined, upon the timely evolution of each earth system.

The National Science Foundation estimates to grant 10-15 awards with a total maximum budget amounting to $10,000,000.
