The four themes of the conference aim to facilitate contributions of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean marine science community to the next assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and recent initiatives to assess status and trends in global ocean ecosystems.  It also aims to make a significant contribution to the development of Theme 6 Biology of the Southern Ocean Observing System and for updating the SCAR Report on Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment.  The outcomes of the conference are also expected to provide significant input to Committee on Environment Protection, Scientific Committee for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources, the International Whaling Commission’s Scientific Committee and other organisations interested in the management and conservation of Southern Ocean ecosystems.


Products will be developed for each theme, and will include:

  1. products from individual researchers and research teams and delivered to the conference and compiled into publications;
  2. syntheses from the scientific community in review and position papers for use by the IPCC, CCAMLR, IWC and other bodies;
  3. standard methods and approaches for observing Southern Ocean ecosystems,
  4. increased capability and methods in modelling, statistics and presentation on status and trends to policy makers.
