****Invitation to participate in the kick-off workshop for the SCAR INSTANT Programme - INStabilities  & Thresholds in ANTarctica: The Antarctic contribution to global sea-level

Tim and I are proud and excited to announce  “INSTANT”, a new SCAR scientific programme recently approved. INSTANT will officially start  in January. Here you can download the science and implementation plan and have a look at video of INSTANT presentation during the SCAR Online conference last summer: (min from 29:33 to 53:03)

The aim of the SRP is to “quantify the Antarctic ice sheet contribution to past and future global sea-level change, from improved understanding of climate, ocean and solid Earth interactions and feedbacks with the ice, so that decision-makers can better anticipate and assess the risk in order to manage and adapt to sea-level rise and evaluate mitigation pathways.

This programme also partners with SCAR-WCRP ISMASS Project, WRCP-CLIC core activities, WCRP-CLIVAR core activities, PALSEA, and PMIP.

****To follow INSTANT activities: please register to the following mailing list:****

The member list on the SCAR INSTANT website, which began as the members of the Programme Planning Group, is being updated all the time, and new members are welcomed.
