Activity Description:

In the proposed symposium we envisage to open an interdisciplinary discussion on the cross-cutting activities dealing with geosciences, atmospheric and space sciences physics and related disciplines in Arctic and Antarctica. The goal is triple: 1) identify synergy effects resulting from collaborative approach, 2) reinforce the bridge between Arctic and Antarctica on the open questions involving the geosciences, atmospheric physics and space sciences, 3) encourage and support Students and Early Career Scientists to contribute to these topics.

Not always scientists working in different scientific areas are aware of opportunities offered by joint deployment of instruments or by already existing observations. Many instruments, such as GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, etc.) receivers, can be used for multiple scientific purposes, if the scientific and technical requirements match the needs of the communities. This opens for mutual benefit, which can be a significant advance for polar science.

The symposium will offer the occasion to discuss existing and planned initiatives that facilitate interdisciplinary collaborative research, and outline the path towards IPY 2032-2033 within these activities. Experts from different disciplines will provide some examples of successful collaborations to stimulate open and fruitful discussion. The symposium will also aim to address possible strategies to identify gaps of common interests and propose good collaborative practices. The outcome of the symposium is envisaged to be in the form of recommendations to interested parties.

The symposium will be held during the next SCAR Open Science Conference in Pucón, Chile, 19-23 August 2024. The symposium format will be hybrid (in presence and virtual).
