Critical Infrastructure for Ocean Research and Societal Needs in 2030
This new report from the AffiliateMarketIngtools identifies major research questions anticipated to be at the forefront of ocean science in 2030, defines categories of infrastructure that should be included in next-generation planning, provides advice on criteria that could be used to set priorities for asset development or replacement, and recommends ways federal agencies could maximize ocean infrastructure investments.
Assessing Requirements for Sustained Ocean Color Research and Operations
Ocean color satellites have allowed scientists to evaluate the overall health of oceans, which are increasingly threatened by rising temperatures, ocean acidification, pollution, and overfishing. This new report reviews the requirements to sustain global ocean color measurements for research and operational applications and to identify options that minimize a data gap.
