International Polar Year (IPY 2007-2008) was an international effort to research the polar regions. This concentrated burst of polar science and exploration helped to shed new light on the impact that the polar regions will have on our climate and the consequences for humanity.
This was the biggest internationally co-ordinated research effort for 50 years. Around 50,000 scientists, students and support staff from over 60 nations were involved in more than 200 Arctic and Antarctic projects.
The Arctic-IPY programme was an important component of the NERC contribution to IPY. More about the Arctic-IPY programme
