NOAA scientists study Antarctic environment


  • Anonymous


Ten scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are participating in the 1970–1971 U.S. Antarctic Research Program. They will conduct experiments and research on various aspects of the antarctic environment over the next year. Four units of NOAA are represented on the white continent—the National Ocean Survey, the National Weather Service, the Environmental Research Laboratories, and the NOAA Office of Plans and Programs. Their work is being financed by the National Science Foundation, which administers the over-all U.S. Antarctic Research Program in which nearly 200 American and foreign scientists and technicians are participating.
