Many of the major USAP resources are heavily committed for the next several seasons. The most constrained of these resources are fixed wing time (LC-130 missions, Basler and Twin Otter support), ship time, and support and berthing at South Pole Station. General availability information for these resources is presented below. Please consider this information carefully while creating field plans and requesting support.
