Following consideration of all submissions, NOAA Ocean Exploration will design the FY23 and FY24 field seasons to address priorities identified in West Coast and Alaskan waters. General areas of interest will be shared publicly, but details about individual recommendations will not be.
Please note that submission does not guarantee that NOAA Ocean Exploration will be able to act on your recommendations. All recommendations will be balanced with other NOAA Ocean Exploration and community priorities. Recommendations will be distributed across the expedition schedule and will be refined during collaborative planning conference calls.
NOAA Ocean Exploration encourages anyone who submits recommendations to join expeditions of interest as a member of the shore-based science team
We value your input and look forward to your participation in our upcoming expeditions.
