A major outcome of the Ocean Obs’19 meeting, Frontiers in Marine Science Community White Papers, follow-up Town Hall, and OceanObs Research Coordination Network workshop is the Living Action Plan. This Plan summarizes goals and recommendations for the design, interoperability, and governance of interdisciplinary, integrated ocean observing initiatives that address critical societal and operational needs. The Living Action Plan is also relevant to address the Ocean Decade Challenges.
The Living Action Plan is a reference that will be continuously revised over the next decade with your input. An ongoing survey seeks input on priority elements that may not have been captured previously. The recommendations in the Living Action Plan may be aggregated under these priority elements:

  • Ocean Processes 
  • Engineering/Systems Engineering 
  • Capacity Building
  • Governance and Services

Complete the survey here. The deadline is 30th September 2020.
