The co-chairs of the Second International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE-2) Steering Committee are seeking nominations for Science Theme and Working Group Chairs of the IIOE-2, as specified in the IIOE-2 Implementation Strategy.

To ensure strong international coordination of delivery of IIOE-2, nominations for the roles of Chairs of Science Themes and Working Groups are invited:
