Charting the Course for Ocean Science in the United States:  Research
Priorities for the Next Decade

The public comment period is now OPEN for 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. All
interested parties are encouraged to review the document and provide
input during this 45 day public comment period (scheduled to close
October 20, 2006).


Called for in the U.S. Ocean Action Plan and developed by the Joint
Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology, 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.

Public briefings on the national ocean research priorities are being
held throughout the country over the next few months. Town hall
meetings and panels will also be held at several conferences. A list
of public briefings and meetings with venue details is located at:


Members from the research community, ocean educators, government
representatives (federal, state, tribal, and local), industry groups,
international representatives, non-governmental organizations, and
any interested individuals are invited provide comments and attend
the briefings.
