Call for comments on the oceanographic community: “EARTH’S LIVING OCEAN: The 2017-2027 Advanced Science Plan for NASA’s Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry Research” (Draft: 04/02/2017)

The comments period has closed.

To guide the NASA Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OBB) program, a working group representing the scientific community including private, academic, and government sectors has updated the NASA OBB Advanced Science Plan for the 2017-2027 decade. The new plan lays out the observational strategies to address the new probing science questions. These strategies include the development and application of space, airborne, and in-water technologies. This plan includes feedback solicited widely from the broader research community before and during the process of writing this report and has been reviewed by an overview committee. The report is now available for public comment.
