Apologies for cross posting.
There are a few days left to submit your abstracts to the session 'Sub-Antarctic Islands – sentinels of change' for the upcoming first <a href="ttps://southcop19.com/">SouthCOP, to be held 4-14 December in Queenstown, New Zealand. The session description appears below. Abstract submission closes 7 April.
Sub-Antarctic Islands – Sentinels of Change
Straddling the Antarctic Convergence Zone, sub-Antarctic islands are geographically unique and exhibit both periglacial and glacial conditions. Permafrost is largely sporadic in this region but is useful as a proxy for investigating change. Environmental thresholds in the sub-Antarctic are narrow; contemporary climate changes, characterised by warming temperatures, fluctuations in moisture, and a higher frequency of extreme events, has the potential to narrow (or even surpass) these thresholds. As such, these islands are regarded as sentinels of change and serve as global early warning systems. Furthermore, these islands host unique vegetation, numerous threatened species, and are important breeding sites. Changes observed in the glacial and periglacial environment will impact these existing ecosystems as well. This session aims to showcase sub-Antarctic research and the role of the region as a sentinel of change.
