EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 15 role in developing and directing the GEM scientific and technical program, its membership must be selected carefully. Recommendation: The Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee will play a key role in leading the GEM program and ensuring program credibility. Committee members should be chosen based on their scientific expertise and their ability to link across the marine habitats and disciplines. To obtain the best program oversight over time there should be regular rotation of the members of all advisory groups, such as the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee.
Thus, a soundly designed program based on a scientific conceptual foundation should not be seen as an alternative to local community and public concerns. Instead, it should be recognized as the only way to do that effectively over the long term. The committee offers the following recommendations to achieve this broad goal: • The science plan should include a broad conceptual foundation that is ecosystem-based. It should seek to understand natural and human-induced changes and it should be flexible to accommodate changing needs without compromising core long-term measurements.
4. Develop an effective data dissemination strategy. 5. Develop data products that will be useful to decision makers. 6. Provide for periodic program review and flexibility in program design. 7. Establish a stable funding base and management infrastructure. , 2000). In addition, the committee examined a number of existing science plans for lessons to help guide GEM planning (Box 1-4); although great variety was found in these plans, they generally confirm the importance of the elements determined by this committee as important.
