The U.S. National Research Council is conducting a Decadal Survey of Ocean Sciences (DSOS 2015) sponsored by the NSF and seeks broadly-based input.

NRC explain that the purpose of the decadel study is to review the current state of knowledge, identify compelling scientific questions for the next decade, analyze infrastructure needed to address these questions vs. the current NSF portfolio, and identify opportunities to maximize the value of NSF investments.

The DSOS committee feels strongly that this report must be informed by broad and thoughtful community input from across the entire spectrum of ocean sciences supported by NSF.

One of the ways it is soliciting community input is through a Virtual Town Hall at: http://nas-sites.org/dsos2015/.  The site provides more detailed information on the statement of task, as well as a complete list of the DSOS committee members.
