• Australian Antarctic Program

    264 views 3 months ago
    Australia’s activities in Antarctica, from scientific research through to logistics and transport, are coordinated through the Australian Antarctic Program. The Program is led by the Australian Antarctic Division.

    Supporting science on the ice requires a comprehensive logistics operation involving sea, air and ground transport and year-round research stations.

    The Australian Antarctic Program is highly collaborative, with partnerships across government and more than 150 national and international research institutions. Australia also works with other countries’ Antarctic programs to run joint international scientific and logistical operations.
