IP024: Future Challenges in Southern Ocean Ecology Research: Another Outcome of the 1st SCAR Horizon Scan (with Portugal, Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Netherlands, SCAR, United Kingdom and the United States)

Submitted: 06/04/2017

Summary:

The 1st SCAR Antarctic and Southern Ocean Science Horizon Scan aimed to identify the most important scientific questions in and about the Antarctic that should be addressed over the next two decades and beyond. This information paper reports another output of this initiative, focused on high-interest research areas related specifically to Southern Ocean life and ecology that, although not all retained as the top priorities among the addressed scientific domains, are of considerable relevance to the biology and ecology of the Southern Ocean.
