Funding: Some NSF and SCAR funds are available for travel and/or subsistence. Please contact Paul Mayewski as soon a possible to request funds if necessary since they are limited.

Purpose: To integrate and synthesize research produced by ITASE (International Trans Antarctic Scientific Expedition) and associated scientific activities.


  1. To take Antarctica from the most sparsely sampled continent with respect to instrumental era climate to the best sampled for the last 200-1000 years, because of the extremely critical role that Antarctic climate change plays in global climate change (oceans, atmosphere, biological systems), and for the purpose of refining predictions of future climate change.
  2. To determine where and how Antarctic physical and chemical climate has or has not changed over the last several hundred years.
  3. To develop a coupled ice core
