The earth's polar regions offer compelling scientific opportunities, but their isolation and their extreme climates challenge the achievement of these opportunities. The Foundation's programs for support of research in the Antarctic and the Arctic acknowledge the need to understand the relationships of these regions with global processes and the need to understand the regions as unique entities. NSF's polar programs, most of which are supported through the Office of Polar Programs, thus provide support for investigations in a range of scientific disciplines.
