Were there any scientific objectives which were compromised by infrastructure limitations?


Which program structures and organizations worked well for this program and should therefore be considered for use in future program?


What are the general characteristics of scientific questions or challenges more appropriately addressed by major oceanographic programs than individual efforts? What are some examples of these questions or challenges?


Are there a series of questions for future research that would be better served by intermediate-size program structures?


What, in your opinion, is the best role of project managers in ensuring the success of a major oceanographic research program?


What mechanisms would you suggest for paving an easier road for programs that cross traditional discipline boundaries (e.g., ocean and atmosphere; ocean and biosphere for CO2-related issues; removing the boundary between the ocean and shoreline)?


What mechanisms would you suggest to foster coordination among long lead time mission agencies and satellite launches?


What kinds of forums should be used to identify gaps between the MOPs?


In which area or areas is increased technological development most needed to help you or your program obtain your scientific objectives (i.e., how do the limitations of the presently available technology impede your progress?)?
