Field Safety Training

July 19, 2010
U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP) participants mark off their campground while attending field safety training at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

The National Science Foundation runs USAP. In addition to maintaining three U.S. research stations on the continent, USAP supports research projects in an array of scientific disciplines, including for example, aeronomy and astrophysics, biology and medicine, geology and geophysics, glaciology, and ocean and climate systems. Outreach, such as the Antarctic Artists and Writers program, and education programs are also supported. For more information about USAP, visit the program's Web site. (Date of Image: Dec. 3, 2005)
