Personnel-1998-99 Plans

Section IV gives the names of the officers in charge of each of these bases, subsidiary stations, ships and aircraft; the number occupation and specialization of personnel (including any designated by other Governments), who are or will be stationed at each of these bases and subsidiary stations and on board these ships and aircraft, including the number of personnel who are members of the military services, together with the rank of any officers and the names and professional affiliations of personnel engaged in scientific activities.
 


Oversight

The United States Antarctic Program is managed by the National Science Foundation (NSF).  The NSF designates a Senior U.S. Representative in Antarctica, and designates an NSF Representative, Antarctica, to coordinate all field activities.  Unless otherwise specified, the Senior U.S. Representative in Antarctica is the Director, Office of Polar Programs (OPP), located at the National Science Foundation.

NSF Representatives in Antarctica (TBA) will be stationed at McMurdo, Palmer, and South Pole Stations during the austral summer operating season. Additionally, Antarctic Support Associates (ASA), under contract to the National Science Foundation, will provide station management year round.


Officers in Charge of Bases

Each U.S. station has a station manager for operations/logistics support and a station science leader.  Station managers for the 1999-2000 season will be:
 
McMurdo Station
Terry Melton (Oct 98 - Oct 99)
Richard Boehne (Oct 99 Oct 2000)
 
Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station
 
Ed Blain (Nov 99 - Feb 2000)
Scott Hulse (Feb 99 - Nov 2000)
 
Palmer Station
 
Ronald E. Nugent,  Jr. (Sep 99 - Mar 2000)
Chris Cunning (Mar 99 - Sep 2000)
 

Officers in Charge of Ships
