The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) aims at advancing scientific knowledge in marine science. To do so, SCOR examines problems and identifies scientific questions that would benefit from enhanced international action, including improvement of scientific methods, design of critical experiments and scientific programmes, fosters recognition of individual marine scientists, supports capacity development activities, presents the views of marine scientists to the relevant international organizations, and co-operates with national and international organizations concerned with scientific and policy aspects of ocean research and related activities. SCOR was established by the Executive Board of ICSU (our predecessor organization) in Brussels in July 1957.
