At this establishment workshop we will develop the detailed work plan for the Programme, Themes and subcommittees as well as identify committee members and leaders.
Registration is open (no fee) and it would greatly help us if you could register not too late so we can estimate the number of participants.
****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:

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.
