Posted December 22, 2018

As of midnight, December 21, 2018, the U.S. government is experiencing a lapse in appropriations. Until the situation is resolved, please refer to the web site regarding the status for federal employees. However, we expect the U.S. Antarctic Program to remain operational under our contractor for the foreseeable future. Should the situation change, we will post additional information on this web site when it is legally permissible to do so.
