Description:SAGHAA 2019 aims to develop consensus among the scientists and policy makers towards research and innovations. It will strive to encourage higher degree of cooperation and collaboration in cross border scientific programmes among likeminded research groups/institutions for sustaining research under hostile environment and help resource sharing for the benefit of mankind in general. Focus: Climate change and technological advancement have acted as big contributors in providing greater accessibility to the Arctic, Antarctic and Himalayan region. SAGHAA 2019 plans to focus on the developments in the three polar regions and Southern Ocean under the climate change scenario. The consequences of warming Southern Ocean, its influence on carbon sequestration, modulating monsoons and on the marine biodiversity will be a new addition to the widening scope of SAGHAA. The Arctic –Antarctic teleconnection to monsoons, changing pattern of the precipitation both in intensity and duration over Himalaya, the dynamics of Himalayan glaciers, snow cover assessment, adaptation of the societies in Himalaya to climate change and more will be the current focus. SAGHAA 2019 will also highlight the challenging marine technology and management aspects of expeditions to Polar Regions that constitute the backbone of conducting research in inaccessible areas of Arctic, Antarctic, Himalaya and Southern Ocean.
