To fulfill its role in serving the ocean sciences community and the federal agencies that fund ocean activities, the Board of Ocean Science and Policy (BOSP) of the National Research Council is calling for community input to a report on future trends and new opportunities in ocean science and policy through the year 2000
BOSP is seeking information on the needs and opportunities in the field as broadly defined as ranging from augmentation of existing activities to new facilities to new ideas. In its first stage, the study will consist of a series of reports focused on 10 areas (see list below). The second stage will focus on themes that link the defined disciplines. Ideas and suggestions about linking themes also are welcomed for the BOSP report.
