National Committee for Antarctic Research

The National Committee for Antarctic Research (NCAR) aims to foster Antarctic science in Australia and serve as an effective link between Australian and overseas scientists working on Antarctic issues. It liaises with the International Council for Science (ICSU) Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and other international bodies, and promotes, supports and, where appropriate, coordinates active Australian involvement in the planning, implementation and management of international programs within SCAR and other ICSU bodies.

NCAR seeks to ensure that research programs of Australian national importance are supported within SCAR subcommittees and at delegates' meetings. It promulgates the national value and benefits of Antarctic and Southern Ocean science, and provides, as required, independent, in-depth and expert reviews of the national Antarctic scientific program.
