  • Acronym: SG-SC-NP
  • Parent Committee: SB
  • Term: Jun. 2013 - Apr. 2014
  • Co-Chairs:
    Jim Irvine (Canada)

Statement of Purpose:

The purpose of a joint NPAFC-PICES Study Group on Scientific Cooperation in the North Pacific Ocean is to develop a framework of enhanced collaboration between the two organizations to achieve better and/or more rapid understanding of natural and anthropogenic variability in marine ecosystems. The study group will review each organization’s scientific needs and identify where similar key questions or scientific issues might be explored jointly by both organizations.

Terms of Reference
  1. Review existing and planned scientific activities of each organization
  2. Develop a list potential areas of cooperation
  3. Convene a meeting/workshop for the following purposes
    • improve understanding of the science activities of each organization
    • review scientific topics from TOR (1) to identify areas of common interest
    • develop a framework for cooperation between NPAFC and PICES that lists categories of joint activities and the rationale for each, including the benefits to each organization from the joint activity, and identify priorities for joint activities within categories
    • recommend processes for implementing TOR (3c)
    • recommend approaches to develop a strategic plan for cooperation and mechanisms to periodically update that plan
  4. The Co-Chairpersons will prepare a final Study Group report for distribution by the NPAFC-PICES Secretariats by spring 2014.
