SCAR Bulletin, No. 185, August 2013
SCAR Annual Report 2012-13
SCAR’s scientific research adds value to national efforts by enabling national researchers to collaborate on large-scale scientific programmes to accomplish objectives not easily obtainable by any single country. SCAR’s members currently include 37 nations and 9 ICSU scientific unions.
SCAR’s success depends on the quality and timeliness of its scientific outputs. Descriptions of SCAR’s research programmes and scientific outputs are available at: www.scar.org. This paper summarises SCAR highlights since the last annual report and lists future SCAR meetings we believe will be of interest to Treaty Parties and others. Selected Antarctic and Southern Ocean science highlights for 2012/13 are listed in Appendix 1.
