Background Paper

BP009: The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Selected Science Highlights for 2013/14

Submitted: 27/03/2014

Summary:

This Background Paper highlights some recent key science papers published since the last Treaty meeting and should be read in conjunction with the Information Paper “The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Annual Report for 2013/14”( pdf IP013 (279 KB) ). Although not highlighted here, the latest ACCE update (see Information Paper) should also be consulted as it contains many pertinent references to climate change in the Antarctic region. It should also be noted that this is by no way a complete list (there have been many highly significant papers published over the last year) but represents a sample of key science papers highlighted by SCAR groups.
