BP002: The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Selected Science Highlights for 2015/16
This Background Paper highlights some recent key science papers published since the last Treaty meeting and should be read in conjunction with the Information Paper “The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Annual Report for 2015/16” ( pdf IP020 (190 KB) ). Although not highlighted here, the latest ACCE update (see Information Paper) should also be consulted as it contains reference to recent studies on climate change in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean region. It should also be noted that this is not a complete list (there have been many highly significant papers published over the last year) but represents some of the key science papers highlighted by SCAR groups.
