The Science Plan of the International Quiet Ocean Experiment (IQOE) has been published and is available in pdf (see http://www.scor-int.org/IQOE/IQOE_Science_Plan-Final.pdf) and printed formats. Thanks to Peter Tyack, George Frist, Ed Urban, Sophie Seeyave and others who contributed to this excellent document, now endorsed by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO).
We are also pleased to note the debut of the IQOE Web site (see http://www.scor-int.org/IQOE.htm).
Project sponsors are working to form a Steering Committee for the IQOE and to raise support for its activities. Until funding is raised for an international project office, the project sponsors (SCOR and POGO) will provide administrative support for the project. RU’s Program for the Human Environment is helping out as part of its Marine Research and Policy Initiative with Monmouth University, initiated by Jesse Ausubel and Vice Admiral Paul Gaffney II, USN (Ret.) .
