On behalf of an external review committee, we invite you to participate in a survey of the US GO-SHIP program. US GO-SHIP is an affiliate of international GO-SHIP, which performs global ship-based decadal surveys to collect, document, and store high precision and full depth hydrographic and biogeochemical data from the global ocean.
The US CLIVAR and OCB programs are coordinating an external community review of US GO-SHIP to assess and provide feedback on program planning, progress, and opportunities to advance the scientific research of US CLIVAR and OCB. This survey is one step of the process to collect community input. It is intended to gauge the effectiveness and value of US GO-SHIP operations, products and science and seeks to find opportunities to strengthen these in the future. We ask your input no matter your level of contact with US GO-SHIP, whether a casual observer and consumer of GO-SHIP data or science, a student who has gone on a cruise, a member of the Executive Committee, or anywhere in between.
The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Please fill out the survey by December 7. If you know of someone else who could provide helpful feedback, please feel free to share this email invitation.
Thank you for your time.
