Antarctic Science Platform

Skelton Glacier, Antarctica

The Antarctic Science Platform is a $49 million research programme funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment to conduct excellent, world-leading science on understanding Antarctica's impact on the global earth system, and how this might change in a warmer world. The funds support four strategic research projects, two expert groups, four research fellowships in modelling, and a contestable funding round.

The Antarctic Research Centre's Richard Levy (through GNS Science) and Huw Horgan co-lead Project-1 'Antarctic Ice Dynamics'. The ARC is also part of Project-2 'Antarctic Ocean Mechanics' led by Craig Stevens (NIWA) and hosts the Antarctic Science Platform's National Modelling Hub where the four modelling fellows can interact and share their research.
