A Mid-Term Assessment of NSF Progress on the 2015 Strategic Vision for Antarctic and Southern Ocean Research


Project Scope:

This study will be based on the 2015 the National Academies report: A Strategic Vision for NSF Investments in Antarctic and Southern Ocean Research (2015).

A committee will be appointed to:  

  • Assess progress in addressing research goals outlined in the 2015 report, and

  • Identify significant recent advances in scientific understanding and/or technical capabilities (e.g., observational, analytical, computational) that present important new opportunities for progress in addressing the mission of NSF’s Antarctic Sciences Section.

In addition, for the three priority research topics in particular  [(i) Changing Antarctic Ice Sheets Initiative; (ii) decoding the genomic and transcriptomic bases of biological adaptation and response across Antarctic organisms and ecosystems; (iii) a next-generation cosmic microwave background program],  the committee will:

  • Address any current implementation challenges in advancing these research areas. 

  • Suggest strategies to overcome these implementation challenges
