About SCAR

SCAR’s policy and strategy is formulated by its members through their appointed delegates. Full members appoint two Delegates, a Permanent and an Alternate Delegate. Associate Members (marked *) appoint one Delegate. Union Members also appoint one Delegate.

Delegates meet every two years to discuss past accomplishments and future plans, and make decisions on which research areas to cover, budget allocations, interactions with the Antarctic Treaty System and other bodies, and partnerships with other organizations.

A View from the South

- insights from SCAR's President, Dr. Steven Chown

SCAR is very fortunate to have many volunteers who give their time to help guide the organization and coordinate its activities.

The SCAR Executive Committee is responsible for working with the Secretariat and members of the community to execute decisions set forth by the SCAR Delegates.

SCAR Delegates represent SCAR’s member countries and ICSU unions and are responsible for setting out the main direction of SCAR.

SCAR Group Leaders put in countless hours to help drive activities, develop products and carry out much of the business of SCAR.

Learn more about these important leaders by clicking on the boxes below.

 

SCAR is very grateful to its many volunteers who help to lead our various groups and activities. Below you will see a list of these people and the groups they lead.

Please also see our Executive Committee and Delegates pages as well as the membership pages for our Geosciences, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences Groups.
