Ocean study bargains numerous merits, from enhancing fisheries administration to getting to know new medicines to allowing early detection of tsunamis and hurricanes. on the request of the Joint Subcommittee on Ocean technology and know-how (JSOST), the nationwide study Council convened a committee to study the draft and ultimate models of the sea learn Priorities Plan and Implementation approach defined in "Charting the path for Ocean technology within the usa: study Priorities for the following Decade", which represents the 1st coordinated nationwide ocean examine making plans attempt related to all federal organizations that help ocean science.The plan offers an formidable imaginative and prescient for ocean examine that may be of significant profit to the sea sciences group and the kingdom. This ebook comprises either units of findings (i.e., the committee's evaluate of the JSOST's draft plan ["A assessment of the Draft Ocean study Priorities Plan: Charting the direction for Ocean technological know-how within the United States"] and the evaluate of the ultimate plan). This publication recommends that JSOST hire quite a few outreach mechanisms to proceed to interact nonfederal companions in ocean study making plans efforts, similar to setting up exterior committees to supply medical and technical recommendation and to study growth on implementation of the study plan.

The major themes and overarching opportunities identified in the draft plan are interdisciplinary in nature and require expertise from many fields for substantial progress to be made. The draft plan rightly acknowledges the importance of interdisciplinary science, as well as approaches that cut across agency missions. The six research themes lend themselves to interdisciplinary efforts and collaboration, both within and across agencies. The descriptions of major research areas in the plan also indicate the need for integration, systems approaches, and collaboration in the conduct of research and the gathering of data.
RECOMMENDATION: The Ocean Research Priorities Plan should provide a bold and compelling vision for the future of ocean science research. This vision should be placed near the front of the plan and referenced in the discussions of theme priorities. This would help to integrate discrete sections of the plan. RECOMMENDATION: The plan should be reorganized to include a discrete section devoted to crosscutting elements that are central to the vision for ocean research. The concept of cross-cutting themes used in the planning document should be reintroduced and moved toward the beginning of the plan as a way to reinforce the importance of these elements in creating the foundation for progress on the societal themes.
This theme includes an appropriate balance between substantive research areas, except for the inconsistent emphasis on basic research among the four research priorities. Recognition of the multidisciplinary nature of research needed to advance this theme is one of its strengths. RECOMMENDATION: More careful wording should be used so that the distinction between Priorities 18 and 19 is clear, the scope of recommended research is not unnecessarily constrained, and important linkages among research themes are described.
