UD is a leader in polar research, exploring topics ranging from climate change to million-year-old microbes!
Researchers at the University of Delaware are going to the ends of the Earth — the Arctic and Antarctic — to explore the mysteries of our time.
This Web site is a gateway to UD's research and educational activities
in the fourth International Polar Year, a global campaign to boost understanding of the Earth's polar regions, advance the frontiers
of discovery, and spark student interest in science careers.
Throughout the year, we invite you to attend our
“William S. Carlson International Polar Year Events,”
named in honor of the former UD president
who was active in polar research.
The series includes public lectures,
art exhibits, films, and more!
The University of Delaware —
a cool place for polar research.
