Decadal Review

On July 12-13, 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) convened a review committee meeting at its headquarters in Arlington, VA to complete a Decadal Review of the COSEE program. The COSEE Decadal Review Committee (CDRC) is comprised seven individuals with a wide variety of expertise. The CDRC carefully reviewed the COSEE Decadal Review documentation, listened to presentations by members of the COSEE Community, and asked questions of the COSEE representatives. Based on this information, the CDRC crafted a Report, which was formally submitted to NSF at the end of September, 2011. A formal response to the CDRC Report is currently being drafted and will be posted here when complete.
