Welcome to the SCAR AAA Site Testing Database. These pages are provided as a resource to enable easy access to all published papers relating to Arctic & Antarctic astronomy site testing. Select the flags you would like to search, and the logical operation for each group (e.g., if you wish to select papers that are about "Dome A" OR "Dome C", then select both sites and then select the "OR" logical operation at the bottom of the list of sites; between groups, AND is assumed). You can also select papers from a given author. To see all the papers in the database, leave all flags deselected.
