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:
