Through the Office of Polar Programs (OPP), the NSF provides grants to scientists at U.S. institutions, Federal agencies, and other research organizations to conduct research in Antarctica as well as analytical research at home institutions. Research is conducted in the region roughly south of 60° south latitude in disciplines including biology and medicine, atmospheric, earth, and ocean sciences, and aeronomy and astrophysics.
