RE: 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.
****To follow INSTANT activities: please register to the following mailing list:****
For sub-committees ideas, we require basic information:
leader, co-leader (we encourage one of the two to be an early career scientist)
Main related INSTANT Theme (or across several themes)
Short description of the objectives (max 4000 char.)
How this can support INSTANT main theme(s) (max 4000 char).
We will be reaching out soon to ask some of the members to help organise the workshop. If you would like to be involved in the pre-workshop organisation please register on the INSTANT mailing list and let Tim ([hidden email]) or I ([hidden email]) know, and read the Science and Implementation plan.
More instructions for the workshop will come in early January, but save the dates!
Stay all safe in this particular period
Tim and I wish you a Merry Christmas and happy new year!
