Submit your abstracts to the upcoming first SouthCOP, to be held 4-14 December of this year in Queenstown, New Zealand. Within the umbrella of the ANTPAS, two sessions will be organized.
1. ANTPAS - Antarctic Permafrost and Soils
The objective of this session is to examine the state of permafrost and active layer dynamics in ice-free regions in Antarctica and their relations with the ecosystems and landscape. All these indeed are undergoing significant environmental changes in response to recent climate trends.
2. Past environments in permafrost regions
The objective of this session is to examine the state of the art and on recent achievements on understanding past environments in permafrost regions in large areas of the Southern Hemisphere, as well as to detect gaps and areas where permafrost research needs to be improved.
