No comments were raised at the SSG/PS business meeting on the content of the Strategic Plan. SSG/PS was invited to send comments to SCAR. No major change to the structure of the SSGs was deemed necessary. The structure and cadence of the OSC were addressed; no consensus was reached on possible improvements.
The achievements of the current SRPs were noted; appreciation was expressed for the developments; AGCS is looking at future updates of the ACCE report; ICESTAR is coming to a termination as an SRP, after achieving the major objectives, especially with respect to the establishment of several VOs. The AAA program raises wide expectation for the results to be achieved. Some ideas for future SRPs were proposed to SSG/PS: ATHENA, to proceed on sub-glacial lakes, after SALE; ocean acidification; GPS studies of the ionosphere; ISMASS.
