This site describes the research initiatives, focus, and funding of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The research section describes BAS programs by topic (climate change, geology, biodiversity, evolution, etc.) and by individual project. The section features a document discussing the Antarctic Science in the Global Context (ASGC) program, older research that was performed between 2000 and 2005. There is also a position statement on climate change, as seen by BAS in their work in Antartica, information on funding opportunities, and information on research collaborations. The data and collections page provides information on obtaining BAS datasets on the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, land surface, oceans, and others; information on physical collections of plants and invertebrates; a gazetteer of Antarctic names and places; and links to regional and geoscience maps produced by Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) member countries.
