What's new:
The SCAR AAA site testing database is now online.
Upcoming meeting: XXXIV SCAR Biennial Meeting, 20 - 30 August 2016, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Broadly stated, the objectives of Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica are to coordinate astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic astronomy, and maximizes the opportunities for productive interaction with other disciplines.

Deliverable outcomes, including public awareness

We aim to deliver:

  • Quantitative assessments of the potential of each Antarctic plateau station to contribute to astronomy,
  • Advances in the understanding of Antarctic meteorology, as it applies to astronomical observations,
  • Improved coordination with atmospheric and ionospheric researchers,
  • Papers in peer-reviewed journals,
  • Properly archived data sets of site-testing data.
