The GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) membership reflects all major activities supported by GODAE OceanView and should be limited to about 30 members to allow an efficient and effective operation of the team. The GOVST should be co-chaired by two of its members. New members will be proposed by the GOVST co-chairs and are subject to approval by the Science Team. The GOVST will meet at least once a year.
Members of GODAE OceanView will adhere to the same principles of free, open and timely exchange of data and products, sharing of scientific results and experience developing applications which were important factors in the success of GODAE.
The term of membership will normally be 5 years but can be extended with the agreement of the chair or co-chairs.
The chair of the ET-OOFS and the co-chairs of the task teams are ex-officio members of the GOVST. Representatives from Argo, GHRSST or the OST science teams are also ex-officio members of the GOVST.
