Appendix C


Virtual Town Hall Questionnaire

The Virtual Town Hall website (http://nas-sites.org/dsos2015/) was active from November 8, 2013, to March 15, 2014, and generated 416 comments. The questions below were posed to the ocean science community, to be used as input to the committee. All responses have been archived, and the website will remain live until the end of 2015. The website was advertised through numerous professional society, special interest, and National Science Foundation websites and/or listservs and was disseminated at the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting and the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting.

  1. Your affiliation
  2. Your discipline
  3. Across all ocean science disciplines, please list 3 important scientific questions that you believe will drive ocean research over the decade.
  4. Within your own discipline, please list 3 important scientific questions that you believe will drive ocean research over the next decade.
  5. Please list 3 ideas for programs, technology, infrastructure, or facilities that you believe will play a major role in addressing the above questions over the next decade. Please consider both existing and new technology/facilities/ infrastructure/programs that could be deployed in this timeframe. What mechanisms might be identified to best leverage these investments (interagency collaborations, international partnerships, etc.)?
  6. Other comments pertinent to the committee’s charge.

Ocean science connects a global community of scientists in many disciplines - physics, chemistry, biology, geology and geophysics. New observational and computational technologies are transforming the ability of scientists to study the global ocean with a more integrated and dynamic approach. This enhanced understanding of the ocean is becoming ever more important in an economically and geopolitically connected world, and contributes vital information to policy and decision makers charged with addressing societal interests in the ocean.

Science provides the knowledge necessary to realize the benefits and manage the risks of the ocean. Comprehensive understanding of the global ocean is fundamental to forecasting and managing risks from severe storms, adapting to the impacts of climate change, and managing ocean resources. In the United States, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is the primary funder of the basic research which underlies advances in our understanding of the ocean. Sea Change addresses the strategic investments necessary at NSF to ensure a robust ocean scientific enterprise over the next decade. This survey provides guidance from the ocean sciences community on research and facilities priorities for the coming decade and makes recommendations for funding priorities.
