US-SCAR Science Group Meetings

In advance of the virtual SCAR Business Meetings (July 27-29) and the SCAR Open Science Conference (August 1-10), US-SCAR will be holding short (one hour) Zoom sessions to provide overviews of SCAR activities for the Geosciences, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences Groups. These three Science Groups help to coordinate the international collaborations that are the hallmark of SCAR's work. These Science Groups oversee the three SCAR Scientific Research Programs: Near-term Variability and Prediction of the Antarctic Climate System (AntClimnow), Integrated Science to Inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation (Ant-ICON) and INStabilities and Thresholds in ANTarctica (INSTANT); and these Science Groups have a number of specialized subsidiary bodies that may be of interest to US scientists. Whether you already know about SCAR or want to learn about SCAR, please join us for these informative sessions. There will be ample time provided for questions and discussion. Come learn how to get involved in SCAR.

Sessions will be lead by the US representatives to the three Science Groups.
