U.S. Antarctic Program Blue Ribbon Panel

About the series

The Panel will conduct an independent review of the current U.S. Antarctic Program to ensure the nation is pursuing the best 20-year trajectory for conducting science and diplomacy in Antarctica — one that is environmentally sound, safe, innovative, affordable, sustainable, and consistent with the Antarctic Treaty.

This first meeting will present the Panel with an overview of opportunities and challenges for Antarctic research and research support; discussion of the National Research Council's report on Future Science Opportunities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean; and planning for additional meetings.
