Antarctica & Climate

JB icesheet breakup homeblock

The climate, physical and biological properties of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean are closely coupled to the global environment by the ocean and the atmosphere.

Ice Sheets & Under the Ice

MDS ice sheet homeblock

International, intensive field programmes aim at understanding the dynamics of Antarctica's ice sheets, ice shelves, glaciers, sea ice and the continent hidden beneath kilometres of ice.

Ecosystems & Biodiversity

RockMac colony MickMackey homeblock

Life scientists strive to understand the evolution and diversity of life in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean to determine how these processes have produced unique Antarctic ecosystems.

The Poles as a Vantage Point

SPT aurora homeblock

Antarctica has unique characteristics that make it a highly desirable vantage point for near-Earth, upper atmosphere, solar, astrophysical and astronomical observations.

Observing Systems

AVdP SCAR observing homeblock

Integrated, multi-disciplinary observations are needed to understand and predict the response of biota to changes in the Southern Ocean and on the Antarctic continent. 

SCAR, the Scientific Committe on Antarctic Research,

is a body of ICSU, the International Council for Science, and it is charged with the initiation, promotion and co-ordination of scientific research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. SCAR also provides international, independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty system and other bodies.
