UNAVCO provides year round support for scientific applications of GPS to the NSF Office of Polar Programs (NSF/OPP). Support is provided to a wide range of disciplines, including glaciology, geophysics, geology, volcanology, and biology. The applications of GPS range from crustal deformation and ice dynamics surveys to mapping and GIS applications. This support includes pre-season planning, field support, and postseason follow-up, as well as development work for supporting new applications. Every year over 30 individual projects are supported in both the Arctic and Antarctic, and UNAVCO maintains a "satellite" facility at McMurdo Station, Antarctica during the austral summer research season. UNAVCO provides a full range of support services including GPS equipment, training, project planning, field support, technical consultation, data processing and data archiving.
