The National Academy of Sciences/NRC committee that reviewed the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program gave their report to the Woods Hole Field Center on August 5th. Jim Coleman presented a summary of the report (having given a similar briefing to Reston in July). Other members of the committee present to help answer questions were Susan Humphris and Neil Opdyke. Dan Walker, staff scientist at NAS who coordinated the report, also attended the review as well as Jeff Williams, Coastal and Marine Program Coordinator from Reston. Approximately 60 people attended the review and posed many questions during the two-hour session.

The report in general gave high marks to the Coastal and Marine Program for its past studies. The report also included some solid recommendations for focusing future coastal and marine work within the context of level funding. The full report will be published and distributed soon and presentations are planned for the St. Pete and Menlo Park teams in early fall.
