Abstract: The National Research Council's Polar Research Board and Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology have appointed a special committee to review the scope, content, and structure of the Trustee Council's two GEM documents, the draft Science Program and the draft Monitoring and Research Plan. To date, the committee has provided guidance in two documents: a November 2000 letter commenting on the schedule and process by which the draft Monitoring and Research Plan would be developed and a February 2001 Interim Report providing detailed comments on the draft Science Program, including missions, goals, administration, scale, data management, and community involvement elements. The committee's next and final task will be to prepare a final report analyzing whether the Monitoring and Research Plan is complete, scientifically sound, and meets the expectations of the Trustee Council. The committee received the draft plan in August 2001 and held a meeting to begin its review in September 2001. The committee will spend the fall preparing its final report. The report is expected to go to outside review in January 2002 and be delivered to the Trustee Council in April 2002.
