Join marine biologist Amy Moran and her team live from McMurdo Station, Antarctica as they conduct research in the coldest ocean water on the planet!
Do you have a biological collection from Antarctica? Do you think one would be helpful? Organizers for an upcoming workshop want to know!
EVENT: February 16, Virtual Industry Day for Operations and Science Support to the United States Antarctic Program
The United States Antarctic Program encompasses all U.S. scientific research and related logistics in Antarctica and aboard ships in the Southern Ocean. The program's world class science relies on seamless integration between operations and research support. NSF is beginning acquisition planning for a follow-on to the current Antarctic Support Contract, and wants to hear from interested parties at a Virtual Industry Day.
International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC) participants share their experiences living and working in Antarctica! Talks are targeted towards school-aged kids from ages 5 - 12+.
The United States Antarctic Program Data Center (USAP-DC) will hold a webinar on November 11 at 3:00 PM EST to provide an overview of services offered and an introduction to the website.
The Antarctic Sciences (ANT) and Antarctic Infrastructure and Logistics (AIL) Sections in the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) will be hosting virtual office hours this week to share information with the academic community regarding NSF's current operations.
The Inner Space Center (ISC), located at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, is a one-of-a-kind national facility that supports live ocean exploration through telepresence technology. At 7:00 pm Eastern on Monday, October 28, ISC will hold a Facebook Live event with researchers aboard the R/V Laurence M. Gould, one of two vessels chartered by the NSF-managed U.S. Antarctic Program.
Stephanie Short, who heads OPP's Antarctic Infrastructure and Logistics (AIL) Section, and Ben Roth, AIL facilities engineering projects manager, will be available on Wednesday December 12 from 11am - 2pm at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union to discuss, and answer questions, about the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernization for Science (AIMS) project.
USAP Prime Contractor to Hold 'Industry Days' Conferences for Upcoming Antarctic Infrastructure Modernization for Science (AIMS) Projects
Leidos Innovations Corporation (Leidos), who provides logistical support to the National Science Foundation (NSF) managed U.S. Antarctic Program, is holding two upcoming "industry days". Leidos is encouraging prime and lower-tier subcontractors who are interesting in learning more about projects and acquisition under the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernization for Science (AIMS) program, to attend the upcoming conferences.
A workshop has been scheduled in February 2011 to discuss new polar research vessel development .
