Byrd Polar Research Center
A special report about one of the nation's premiere polar and alpine science institutions
Byrd Polar Research Center was established shortly after the International Geophysical Year in 1960 as the Institute of Polar Studies at The Ohio State University. Its mission and focus have evolved over the years, but its commitment to broadening our knowledge of the polar regions has remained constant. The Antarctic Sun took a closer look at the science and the people behind the research in a series of articles over the summer of 2008. You can find a list of links to the stories below.
