1st International ANTPAS Workshop on Antarctic permafrost, periglacial processes and soils
04.10. – 05.10.2017
The workshop will mainly focus on the main SCAR Horizon Scan questions and the future hot scientific topics concerning the permafrost environment in Antarctica. For the past 20 years, research has mainly focused on the thermal state of permafrost and the active layer, periglacial processes and landforms and cryosoils. However, recently the community is becoming multidisciplinary, with research more focused on terrestrial ecosystem dynamics under a changing climate. Simultaneously, the links between ecosystem and permafrost scientists became stronger and more collaborative.
