Working at the frontier of polar science
British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is one of the world’s most respected polar science organisations. We conduct cross-discipline research that reveals how our planet works, measures how it’s changing, and influences decision-makers around the world. The Polar Regions hold the secrets of our planet’s past and offer a window into its future. The effects of climate change can be felt here before they appear anywhere else.
Our mission is to help society adapt to these changes, by providing scientific advice and evidence to government and business to enable policy actions that will lessen their most harmful effects, and highlighting opportunities for sustainable solutions. While the Polar Regions may seem remote and isolated, they are the beating heart of our planet. Change here has immense consequences for us all.
