Science Advisory Structure
Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES) was responsible for establishing the scientific objectives through a Science Advisory Structure (SAS) that involved over 100 scientists and engineers on standing committees and panels, and almost 100 in the shorter-lived planning groups. The JOIDES SAS was restructured in 1996 to better undertake the initiatives and objectives contained in the 1996 Long-Range Plan, "Understanding our Dynamic Earth through Ocean Drilling."
JOIDES SAS consisted of an Executive Committee (EXCOM), and a science advisory structure (SAS) headed by a Science Committee (SCICOM). The SCICOM and the JOIDES science advisory panels were charged with the long-term science planning activities necessary to meet, and go beyond, the goals of the 1996 Long-Range Plan.
