[...] Makino, the Chair of HD (Parent Committee of WG51) presented the recent study result of WG51 on an analysis of PICES research topics and its variation among member countries (figure right) and decadal transition in a collaboration network of organizations in the PICES community. [...] The study showed clear international differences in popular disciplines and a distinctive trend in the formation of more complex and denser networks from the 1990s to the 2010s. [...] Proposal for PICES Promotion Video Production SB reviewed the proposal and valued the benefits of the proposal as a cost-effective method for PICES promotion and requested AP-SciCom to allow input from SB when designing the video contents, for example, SB wanted to include scenes (photos etc) with field observations.
