Welcome to the USGS International Polar Year Home Page

The International Polar Year is an intense scientific campaign to explore new frontiers in polar science, improve our understanding of the critical role of the polar regions in global processes, engage the public in polar discovery, and help attract the next generation of earth scientists.

Participation in the IPY allows the USGS to celebrate this enduring tradition with the rest of the global polar research community and to renew our commitment to polar science at a time when the world is focused on the extraordinary changes happening in these regions.

Learn more about the 125-year history of the IPY and about the upcoming IPY 2007-2008.

Learn more about the USGS's past and present involvement in IPY activities.
