Special Town Hall: Ocean Research in the Coming Decade
Wednesday, February 8 5:45-7:15pm
Location: Empire A
Organized by the Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST)
The Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST), under the White House National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), is initiating, in alignment with the National Ocean Council, development of a 10-year ocean research plan (tentatively titled “Ocean Research in the Coming Decade” and hereafter, “the Plan”). The Plan will describe the most pressing research questions and most promising areas of opportunity within the ocean science and technology (S&T) enterprise* for the coming decade. It will set the stage for agency-specific and interagency coordinated actions across Federal agencies and with other ocean sectors to address societal needs and issues of national importance.
*For the purposes of this document, “ocean science and technology enterprise” encompasses basic, inquiry-driven, fundamental research; applied science and research driven by societal and management needs; the translation and application of research results; technology, tools, and infrastructure; innovation; education and workforce development; social sciences as related to ocean issues; and operational oceanography.

When the Deepwater Horizon well exploded, it changed the stories of those affected. Through response and recovery efforts, ongoing impact studies, and lessons from the past, this Story Collider will explain how the oil spill has changed our path and the stories we have to share.
In partnership with the GoMRI-funded C-IMAGE consortium, the Story Collider brings together people from all walks of life to share true, personal stories of how science has affected their lives. Some of funny; some are dramatic. All are about the transformative power of science.
Registration is free.
