Polar operations

Supporting and enabling world-leading interdisciplinary research in the Polar Regions requires extensive logistic capability and know-how.  British Antarctic Survey operates the UK’s polar research infrastructure for its own scientists and for the British and international science community. We work regularly with national Antarctic operators from over thirty countries and with nations who operate research facilities in Arctic.
