    Abstract

    SCAR is an interdisciplinary body of the International Science Council (ISC), and currently includes 44 member countries and nine ISC unions. SCAR is charged with initiating, developing and coordinating high quality international scientific research in, from and about the Antarctic region (including the Southern Ocean).

    SCAR’s Mission is to advance Antarctic research, including observations from Antarctica, and to promote scientific knowledge, understanding and education on any aspect of the Antarctic region and its role in the Earth System. SCAR also provides independent and objective scientific advice and information to the Antarctic Treaty system and other bodies, and facilitates the international exchange of Antarctic information within the scientific community.

    Here SCAR reports on recent CCAMLR engagement, recent scientific research of relevance to SC-CAMLR and SCAR activities of mutual interest.
