Stream implementation plans
A key initiative of the Australian Antarctic Science Strategic Plan 2011-12 to 2020-21 was to develop and regularly review stream implementation plans. These plans have been reviewed for the Australian Antarctic Science Program (including Grant Program) 2018-19 round and links to the final versions are below.
Research priorities for new proposals are identified and have been applied on the basis of urgency, impact or sequencing needs.
There is no implementation plan for the Frontier Science theme. Frontier Science is open to excellent projects in any field of research that is not covered within Themes 1–3.
Theme 1: Climate Processes and Change
Stream 1.1 The Antarctic ice sheet
Stream 1.2 Oceans and marine ice in the Southern Hemisphere
Stream 1.3 Atmospheric processes and change
Stream 1.4 Antarctic palaeoclimate
Theme 2: Terrestrial and Nearshore Ecosystems: Environmental Change and Conservation
Stream 2.1 Trends and sensitivity to change
Stream 2.2 Vulnerability and spatial protection
Stream 2.3 Human impacts: prevention, mitigation and remediation
Theme 3: Southern Ocean Ecosystems: Environmental Change and Conservation
Stream 3.1 Marine ecosystem change
Stream 3.2 Wildlife conservation
Stream 3.3 Southern Ocean fisheries
Stream 3.4 Protecting marine biodiversity
