U.S. Advisory Committee for Scientific Ocean Drilling (USAC)
The U.S. Advisory Committee for Scientific Ocean Drilling (USAC) is the national advisory committee for U.S. participation in the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and wider issues in scientific ocean drilling. USAC is established through the U.S. Science Support Program to broadly represent the scientific community. The twelve USAC members are peer-elected, serve three-year staggered terms, and meet biannually.
IODP Facility Boards and Advisory Panels
The U.S. Science Support Program provides travel support for U.S. members serving on the IODP Facility Boards and Advisory Panels, as well as approved liaisons, to attend their respective panel meetings.
