I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    Telepresence uses satellite communication from ship to shore to

evolving it is important to address the needs of the shore based 
scientists and public to maintain a high level of participation. We 
will use voluntary surveys to identify the needs of users of data, best 
approaches to leverage expertise of shore based participants and to 
create a ``Citizen Science'' web portal for meaningful public 
engagement focused on ocean exploration.

II. Method of Collection

    This will be a web-based survey.
