Twelfth WDS Scientific Committee Meeting

The WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC) convened for its first face-to-face Meeting of 2015 on 07–08 March at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. During the Meeting, the WDS-SC continued to revise the WDS Data Policy to account for the conditions that can be placed on data due to, for example, issues of protecting people or species. Moreover, the SC examined its connection with WDS Network Members, as well as exploring the potential of setting up a WDS Working Group concerning the concept of evidence-based policy making.
