The CSIRO Cuts and Ocean Research in Uncertain Times

Session ID#: 12252

Session Description:
Events in Australia over the past two weeks---with the CEO of CSIRO, Australia's national scientific organization, announcing an abrupt end to climate-oriented research, followed by storms of protest from the global scientific community---highlight very serious and pervasive issues facing ocean and climate research around the world. 

In this round table, we consider appropriate responses to the dwindling support for oceanographic research, and the longstanding inability in effectively communicating to the public, and to policymakers, the great importance of this work for society.  

Researchers and communicators of all backgrounds, and all career stages, are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
