Scientific research and operational support of that research are the principal activities supported by the United States Government in Antarctica. The goals are to expand fundamental knowledge of the region, to foster research on global and regional problems of current scientific importance, and to use Antarctica as a platform from which to support research. For projects involving fieldwork, the U.S. Antarctic Program supports only that research that can be done exclusively in Antarctica or that can be done best from Antarctica. The program also supports analytical research, as well as modeling and synthesis activities, performed at home organizations. The Division of Antarctic Sciences strongly encourages proposals from investigators new to polar research with the goal of broadening participation with respect to both individuals and institutions.
