[MIS19-04] The SCAR long-term concept - Horizon Scan
Keywords:Antarctica, Horizon scan, Long-term concept
Answering these questions will require innovative experimental designs, new applications of technology, invention of next generation field and laboratory methodologies and development of innovative observing systems and networks. Improved models are needed that realistically represent Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as an integral part of the Earth system, and provide predictions at spatial and temporal resolutions. Not only the scientific innovation, sustained year-round, access to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean will be essential. A coordinated, portfolio of cross-disciplinary and bipolar science, based on new models of international collaboration and funding, will be essential as no one scientist, program or nation can realize these aspirations alone.
