SCAR is charged with initiating, developing, and coordinating high quality international scientific research in the Antarctic and providing independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty System.
This SCAR Open Science Conference will focus on SCAR's dual role of science and advice to policy makers. View the programme here.
