Field Safety Training

July 20, 2010
Participants during a two-day field safety training program learn how to erect tents, build snow shelters and use two-way radios and stoves.

The National Science Foundation runs the U.S. Antarctic Program (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: Oct. 28, 2006)
