2025-2035 Decadal Survey of Ocean Sciences for the National Science Foundation: Call for Experts

About the Activity & the Call for Experts

Learn more about the activity here

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is seeking suggestions for experts to participate in the new study on advising the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Sciences (NSF OCE) on forward-looking approaches to guide investments in research, infrastructure, and workforce development. The committee will develop a compelling research and infrastructure strategy to advance understanding of the ocean’s role in the Earth system and the sustainable blue economy. The report will recommend ways that NSF OCE could develop the capacity to respond nimbly as priorities change and new opportunities emerge over the 2025-2035 decade.

Using these suggestions, National Academies staff will be looking to build a committee of volunteer experts in addition to collecting information for potential speakers, participants, and peer reviewers for any publications resulting from the activity.

This study will be carried out by a committee of approximately 20 volunteer experts with broad knowledge of the ocean sciences, engineering, and technology, including subfields such as:

  • Biological oceanography
  • Chemical oceanography
  • Physical oceanography
  • Marine geology and geophysics
  • Marine ecosystems
  • Ocean-related climate science
  • Ocean engineering (including remote sensing)
  • Ocean informatics/data science
  • Social Sciences (including environmental justice)
  • Ocean workforce (including diversity, equity, and inclusion)
  • Research program management 

The National Academies are committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion in order to strengthen the quality of our work. Diverse perspectives contribute to finding innovative approaches and solutions to challenging issues. We encourage the suggestion of experts who reflect the populations we serve and also welcome in particular suggestions of experts from underrepresented racial, ethnic, gender and sexual identity groups, people with disabilities, and early- and mid-career professionals.

Suggestions are to be submitted by March 12, 2023.
