Dear colleagues:


As you may know, the XXXII SCAR and Open Science Conference, Antarctic
Science and Policy Advice in a Changing World, will be held on July 13-25,
2012 in Portland, Oregon, USA (See


We would like to attract your attention to Session 33, ?Mapping Antarctica
and the Southern Ocean: ADMAP, BEDMAP, IBCSO and other activities?.


Basic data gathering and mapping of the physical environment of Antarctic
and the Southern Ocean are fundamental to many aspects of current and future
research. The maps serve to depict data in a readily understandable and
easily interpreted manner, and the datasets themselves form the basis for
many studies that seek to understand the processes that shape the Antarctic
environment, their sensitivities and their future behavior. Data
compilation, mapping and archiving are major SCAR efforts supported by
dedicated international groups that help preserve and organize existing data
and plan future expeditions. This session will focus on problems, progress
and potential for acquisition, management, cataloging and sharing of polar
data. We invite contributions from researchers involved in marine, airborne,
land and satellite surveys, and those working to establish distributed data
access, interdisciplinary data applications, and long term data preservation
strategies. Papers devoted to the development of computational techniques
that facilitate data compilation and interpretation are also welcome.


Please check the page for the abstracts deadline: February 15, a few days
from now.


We would very much like seeing you at Portland.


Kind regards,


Session conveners,

Marta Ghidella
