Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center
Through 56 years of excellence, the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) of The Ohio State University, has earned an international reputation as one of the premier polar and alpine research and teaching centers globally with an expanding focus on global climate and environmental issues. Over the years the scope of the research conducted at BPCRC has broadened significantly to encompass civil and environmental engineering, earth sciences, environmental sciences, glaciology, meteorology, oceanography, paleoclimatology, and remote sensing.
BPCRC’s goal is to continue the pursuit of excellence in existing research and teaching programs and to increase its national and international contributions to the understanding and knowledge in areas such as climate variability, detecting and interpreting changes in modern physical and biogeochemical systems, and predicting future climatic and environmental changes and the associated benefits and/or consequences for society. To achieve these goals, the Center aspires to grow and expand its research foci to include a more global perspective.
These scientific foci are complemented by a very active archival research program that preserves important collections such as the papers of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Sir Hubert Wilkins, and Dr. Frederick Cook. BPCRC maintains a vibrant Education and Outreach Program that includes tours, hands-on activities, workshops for educators and students, a seminar series and various special programs. The BPCRC also offers diverse and often unique learning experiences in the laboratory and the field for OSU undergraduates, graduates and Postdocs. More information about all of BPCRC’s research programs and related activities can be found on the BPCRC website
