IMBER Science Plan and Implementation Strategy (SPIS)

  • The IMBER Science Plan and Implementation Strategy builds on the IGBP/SCOR Framework for Future Research on Biological and Chemical Aspects of Global Change in the Ocean and the OCEANS Open Science Conference held in Paris (France) in 2003. The ideas from these have been woven into a framework of four themes, each with a series of issues and priority questions that form the basis of the IMBER Science Plan.
  • The supplement to the IMBER Science Plan and Implementation Strategy were commissioned by IGBP and SCOR to facilitate a successful transition after completion of GLOBEC.
