DEVELOPMENT OF THE OCEAN RESEARCH PRIORITIES PLAN 27 At the conclusion of the breakout sessions, the session moderators convened in groups according to theme. Each group then synthesized and condensed the results of the breakout session discussion.

Because of the linkages among these priorities, as discussed in Chapter 4, progress toward certain priorities will be affected by progress toward one or more of the others. It also became clear that because the 21 longer-term priorities were so broadly stated, the committee could not answer Task 3b without information about how the research priorities would be implemented. As noted in Chapter 4, the discussion of the priorities does not convey the degree of difficulty or the challenge in achieving them or convey an assessment of where the ocean research community stands today, making it difficult to address realistically the likely time frame for success.

There was a great deal of variation in the degree to which the JSOST succeeded in incorporating these comments into its revision. For example, many comments were made on the weakness of “science-to-policy” considerations in the planning document; with the addition of the section “Making a Difference” and its subsection “Information to Sup-port Decision Making,” the draft plan made substantial improvements in this area. 28 REVIEW OF THE OCEAN RESEARCH PRIORITIES PLAN In the months after the workshop and public comment period, a draft of the plan was developed from the original planning document presented in Denver.
