UNAVCO 1996 Annual Report

B.5 Support to the Office of Polar Programs

The UNAVCO Boulder Facility provides year round support for scientific applications of GPS to the NSF's Office of Polar Programs (OPP) Antarctic Program. This support includes pre-season planning, training, equipment, field support, data processing support and post season follow-up, as well as development work for new applications. NSF-OPP funds the Facility directly for the incremental cost of support to Antarctic research projects but does not support the Facility management and infrastructure functions (e.g., supervisory, management, systems administration, and development and testing functions are not supported by OPP). A total of 19 Polar Program Sciences Events encompassing a range of scientific disciplines were supported throughout the 1996/1997 field season (Table B-2). More detailed information, including a 1996/97 season annual report, is available in the Polar Programs section of the UNAVCO Homepage. Figure B-3 shows the present project support schedule for the 1997/98 season. OPP funding to the Boulder Facility was $155,747 in FY97 and is projected at $164,079 for FY98.
