Upcoming events


The US Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (US-SCAR) is hosting a virtual meeting for US science related to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Scientists interested in getting involved in Antarctic research through US programs are also welcome and encouraged to attend. There will be a mix of lightning talks, panels and social activities for the US Antarctic Community to meet and interact.June 20-23, 2023 (two hours/day, with additional one-hour social activity). Single Zoom registration for all four days.

Deadline for meeting registration: June 15, 2023 - There is no registration fee.

Hosted by the US Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (US-SCAR). Meeting supported by funding from NSF/Office of Polar Programs/Antarctic Sciences.

provides an informal 1-hour discussion space for a small group of early career scientists to explore a topic of interest with a more experienced researcher with considerable success in the topic area. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to steer the conversation by submitting topic-related questions with registration. The host will entertain questions related to the session, so come prepared to have an active discussion.

With the launch of the second phase of the science plan in 2015, SOLAS chose to use a pragmatic approach to revise the implementation strategy at least 2 years into the future. The latest iteration has been released online and will be continually updated by SOLAS Implementation Teams.

To better supplement the continually-evolving strategy and facilitate information dissemination to the SOLAS community, the Implementation Teams are now calling for community input on the list of SOLAS-related cruises. Submitted activities will be highlighted on the SOLAS website and be promoted via SOLAS communication channels.

After a long hiatus, the CATCH seminar series is back!

Save the date for our first seminar: May 4, 2023 at 16:00 CET / 14:00 UTC.
