Charting the Course for Ocean Science in the United States: Research
Priorities for the Next Decade
The National Science and Technology Council Joint Subcommittee on
Ocean Science and Technology is developing Charting the Course for
Ocean Science in the United States: Research Priorities for the Next
Decade, a draft document that outlines the national ocean research
priorities for the United States for the next ten years.
Called for in the U.S. Ocean Action Plan, this draft document, along
with a follow-on Implementation Strategy, will describe a vision for
U.S. ocean science and technology, highlight key areas of interaction
of our society and the ocean, and identify critical ocean research
priorities for these areas. The draft document is scheduled to be
released for public comment late summer 2006.
Public briefings on the national ocean research priorities will be
held during the next few months in the following cities: Seattle,
WA; Anchorage, AK; Miami, FL; Honolulu, HI; Baton Rouge, LA; West
Long Branch, NJ; Chicago, IL; and La Jolla, CA. Town hall meetings
and panels will also be held at several conferences across the
country including Oceans 2006, California and the World Ocean '06,
and the American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting. A developing list
of public briefings and meetings with venue details is located at:
Members from the research community, Industry groups, ocean
educators, government representatives (federal, state, tribal, and
local), international representatives, non-governmental
organizations, and any interested individuals are invited to attend.
