Abstract:

Our major long-term goals for this project are 1. Develop improved assessment of the ocean science, technology, and operations OSTO workforce. 2. Anticipate future requirements for this workforce. 3. Identify educational processes needed to develop this workforce. Our major objectives are 1. Characterize the present workforce that supports ocean observing, analysis, and forecasting operations OOAF. 2. Characterize the present workforce that supports OSTO components that are similar to the OOAF component. 3. Identify the types of information required to monitor the evolution of the OSTO workforce over the next two decades, identify the most probable future workforce scenarios, and design initial workforce prediction systems. 4. Identify education and training objectives and practices that effectively address current and anticipated OSTO workforce needs.
