Antarctic Near-shore and Terrestrial Observation System (ANTOS)

The SCAR ANTOS Expert Group aims to establish a biologically focussed, integrated and coordinated Antarctic-wide observation,  to identify and track environmental variability and change at biologically relevant scales, and to use this information to inform biological, physical, and earth science studies. 

In 2015 the ANTOS International Workshop was held to develop an implementation plan, detailed in the pdf Workshop Report (374 KB) . A series of next steps were formulated that would need to be addressed before the 2016 SCAR Open Science Conference (OSC) in Kuala Lumpur and these were undertaken by the Group.

An ANTOS workshop was held prior to the 2016 OSC.  More information on the ANTOS News page.
