We invite our collaborators, the wider science community and stakeholders to a discussion on Antarctica’s impact on the global earth system, and how this might change in a +2°C (Paris agreement) world. The conference provides an opportunity for the Antarctic Science Platform team to present an update on our research, to discuss successes, challenges and next steps .
Our joint plenary session with stakeholders and scientists considers how to best support policy makers in a joint session. In addition, expert workshops on key Antarctic Science Platform priorities will allow us to explore high priority opportunities and challenges. Antarctica New Zealand will provide an update on Scott Base redevelopment plans and the 2021/22 field season.
Sessions focus on the ASP research priorities and impact statements. Please find an overview below. An open session supports invited contributions by Antarctica New Zealand, scientific collaborators, and policy makers.
Understanding the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
Understanding the impacts of change in the Antarctic atmosphere and Southern Ocean
Understanding threats to ecosystem dynamics in the Ross Sea
Understanding change in terrestrial and nearshore Antarctic environments, and the connections between them
If not stated otherwise, workshops are open to all with an interest in the topic. Please indicate in your registration which workshops you would like to attend. We will try our best to schedule the workshops with the least overlap possible.
