    *Plan for Ocean Research in the Coming Decade*


        Notice of request for information.


    The Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST) is
    requesting input on the overall framing and content of a plan for
    Ocean Research in the Coming Decade (“the Plan”). The SOST is
    chartered under the National Science and Technology Council to
    advise and assist on national issues related to ocean science and
    technology. The SOST contributes to the goals for Federal ocean
    science and technology, including identifying priorities and
    developing coordinated interagency strategies. The Plan will
    describe the most pressing research questions and most promising
    areas of opportunity within the ocean science and technology
    enterprise for the coming decade. It will set the stage for
    agency-specific and interagency coordinated actions across Federal
    agencies and with non-Federal sectors to address societal needs and
    issues of national importance. This notice solicits relevant public
    input, particularly suggestions directed toward how the Plan should
    be structured and specific topic areas that should be considered for

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers, Jim
