APPENDIX E

Schedule of Outreach Sessions Held to Gather Community Input for This Study

Some of the Committee’s outreach sessions were stand-alone events and others were held as part of existing conferences and meetings. For each of these sessions, the NSF grantee databases and subsequent personal recommendations were used in efforts to identify and invite all Antarctic and Southern Ocean researchers based within a roughly 2-hour driving radius of the event (i.e., people located close enough that it would be feasible to travel to/from the event within that day). The exact format varied from one event to the next, depending on the time available and number of participants, but the same basic questions were discussed with each group (also the same as the questions posed on our virtual townhall website). All events were held in 2014.

Antarctic and Southern Ocean scientific research has produced a wide array of important and exciting scientific advances. Spanning oceanography to tectonics, microbiology to astrophysics, the extreme Antarctic environment provides unique opportunities to expand our knowledge about how our planet works and even the very origins of the universe. Research on the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic ice sheets is becoming increasingly urgent not only for understanding the future of the region but also its interconnections with and impacts on many other parts of the globe.

The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) provides U.S. researchers with broad access to the continent and its surrounding ocean. A Strategic Vision for NSF Investments in Antarctic and Southern Ocean Research identifies priorities and strategic steps forward for Antarctic research and observations for the next decade. This survey presents a decadal vision for strategic investments in compelling research and the infrastructure most critical for supporting this research. This report makes recommendations for high-priority, larger-scale, community-driven research initiatives that address questions poised for significant advance with the next decades. This report also outlines a roadmap through which the vision and these priorities can be met.
