>La newsletter du SCAR de janvier 2021 est parue

Le secrétariat du SCAR annonce la parution de la newsletter de janvier 2021.

Introduction from the Executive Director

Welcome to the first SCAR newsletter of 2021 ! We hope that you had a restful break, despite the many challenges still posed worldwide.

This month we feature a range of exciting publications from our Scientific Research Programmes, representing both those recently completed (2012-2020) and those just launched in 2021. The "Antarctic Thresholds - Ecosystem Resilience and Adaptation" research programme (AnT-ERA) has compiled hundreds of articles on the Antarctic and identified ten key messages and concerns in "Antarctic Ecosystems in Transition". Contributing to the research programme Integrated Science to Inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation (Ant-ICON), a new article examines pathways for the introduction of Antarctica’s most persistent non-native species. Also featured in this newsletter is a publication on geothermal heat flow, contributing to the 2012-2020 Past Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics research programme (PAIS).

We warmly invite you to join the kick-off workshop of the new INStabilities & Thresholds in ANTarctica Scientific Research Programme (INSTANT). The workshop will be held via Zoom from 15-17 February. Please make sure to register in advance.

As always, we also present a range of upcoming events, news and opportunities from the SCAR community. We would love you to share your news, events, and photos with us at
