Proposals requesting Antarctic fieldwork should be submitted no less than eighteen months prior to the desired deployment.
The Antarctic Sciences Section (ANT) of the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) supports cutting-edge research to:
- Expand fundamental knowledge of Antarctic systems, biota, and processes
- Improve understanding of interactions among the Antarctic region and global systems
- Utilize the unique characteristics of the Antarctic region as a science observing platform
The U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP) supports scientific research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean with logistics provided by OPP’s Antarctic Infrastructure and Logistics Section (AIL). Antarctic fieldwork is supported only for research that must be performed, or is best performed, in Antarctica. ANT encourages research, using existing samples, data, and models, that does not require fieldwork. ANT also encourages research that crosses and combines, disciplinary perspectives and approaches.
