Offices, labs and research facilities

To carry out our work, British Antarctic Survey operates three research stations in the Antarctic and two on subantarctic South Georgia, and one in the Arctic. Research platforms include also two modern ice-strengthened Royal Research Ships and a fleet of specially adapted aircraft and various off-the-shelf and specialised vehicles.
