2014 SCOR General Meeting



If you want to...


Recognition that scientific questions about the ocean often require an interdisciplinary approach led the International Council for Science (ICSU) to form the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) in 1957. SCOR was the first interdisciplinary body formed by ICSU.

SCOR activities focus on promoting international cooperation in planning and conducting oceanographic research, and solving methodological and conceptual problems that hinder research. Scientists from thirty-two nations have formed national SCOR committees to interact with international SCOR. Approximately 250 scientists participate in SCOR activities at any given time.
