Want to have your say on the next U.S. Ocean Science Plan? If you’re in New Orleans February 8, you can attend a public meeting hosted by the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST), which is accepting input on the upcoming plan.

Dr. Rodney Cluck, chief of the Division of Environmental Sciences at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), and other federal leaders will be there.

This new 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 actions across federal agencies and with nonfederal entities to address societal needs and issues of national importance.
