Scheduled meetings

PRAMSO Meeting

Sunday 10 September – 9:00 – 13:00 – Hilton Hotel (50 seats)
Friday 15 September – 9:00 – 13:00 – Ex Ospedale Militare (75 seats)

Join us as we develop the next generation of scientific drilling projects to help address INSTANT’S objectives. We will discuss, develop, and prioritize key research questions and identify regions that will help us address those questions. We will work with members of our climate and ice sheet modeling community to identify their data needs and discuss model driven hypotheses to guide drill site selection. We will establish a plan to collate existing site survey data for new priority sites and establish plans to collect additional requisite data. Many of you may already have a great idea for a project and some may be well developed but you need to build an international team to help push the project along. We strongly encourage Early Career researchers to present ideas as there are opportunities to benefit from friendly, open, and supportive discussion and guidance from experienced members of our community. During our reconnect workshop on Sunday the 10 th (9:00 – 13:00) we will get updates on existing projects that have yet to be drilled and will introduce new drilling ideas. We can meet and develop these ideas during the INSTANT meeting and will reconvene on Friday 15 th (9:00 – 13:00) to update, summarize, and capture the ongoing coordination within the different projects and establish a plan for next steps.

MARICE Meeting

Sunday 10 september – 9:00 – 17:00 – Ex-Ospedale Militare

RINGS workshop - planning surveys in East Antarctica

Sunday 10 September – 10:00 – 16:00 – Hotel Continentale (50 seats)

SCAR’s RINGS Action Group aims to facilitate regional airborne geophysical surveys in the coastal regions all around the Antarctic Ice Sheet to constrain bed topography and other key physical characteristics of the coastal regions ( For these purposes, we help coordinate individual regional survey efforts that follow a set of RINGS protocols so that the entire Antarctic coastal zone will be surveyed adequately without data gaps. This workshop will host open discussion to plan surveys in East Antarctica mainly between 60E and 170E, including Princess Elisabeth Land, Queen Mary Land, Wilkes Land, George V Land, Oates Land, and north Victoria Land. Details of the meeting agenda will be discussed with the participants so please register yourself as soon as possible to facilitate our organization of the event. We welcome participants at all career stages.

ICEPRO Meeting

Friday 15 September – 14:00 – 18:00 – Ex-Ospedale Militare

ICEPRO (An International Collaboration Effort for Improving Paleoclimate Research in the Southern Ocean) is a new SCAR Action Group that aims to improve our understanding of past and present mechanisms that affect the Southern Ocean physical drivers, geochemical composition and ecosystem structure and dynamics by: (1) linking modern observations and paleo-records and (2) facilitating transitional collaborations on (paleo)environmental studies of the Southern Ocean. To reach this goal, ICEPRO is bringing together international partners to coordinate and harmonize joint research activities in terms of sampling strategies, methodologies, proxy calibrations and the development of joint future Antarctic expeditions. Such collaborative work, which also aims to promote exchange of scientists among the different cruises, and to involve early career researchers, could therefore cover most of the important regions of the Southern Ocean, thus allowing a better monitoring of modern environmental conditions, and ultimately improve calibration of the geochemical, sedimentological and micropaleontological tools commonly used for paleoreconstructions.
