    Climate Crisis: The Polar Regions in a 2°C Warmer World - what is the connection and impact of such scenario to the mid-latitudes and the tropics?

    The mid-latitudes and the tropics are the Earth’s climate hot spots that suffer from the climate crisis and climate change from both poles. The warming of Arctic imposes pressures on the cities, people and food production in these already stressed areas.
     
    Additionally, the warmed Antarctic ecosystems are vulnerable to state shifts and species invasions. The loss of land ice in both regions will contribute substantially to global sea level rise.

    The key aim of MISA9 is to provide a platform to share and discuss polar climate variability, atmospheric dynamics, polar oceanography, climate and sea ice modeling, as well as biological response and adaptation. We hope that the papers presented and shared data can be used towards creating mitigation measures, policies and international cooperation and networking.
    The 9th Malaysian International Seminar on Antarctica (MISA9) is jointly organized by Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Yayasan Penyelidikan Antartika Sultan Mizan (YPASM) and National Antarctic Research Centre (NARC), Malaysia.

    We cordially invite you to participate in this polar sciences seminar.
