International Facilities

In addition to the facilities available through UK, there are opportunities to use field stations, ships and aircraft operated by other nations, including commercially operated ships, and to access the polar logistic infrastructure of Arctic Rim nations.

Listings (still developing) are provided of other nations’ research stations and polar vessels which illustrate the range of such facilities and provide links to more information. The Arctic Office aims to make researchers aware of the polar logistical facilities available around the Arctic and in some cases has already established links to allow greater access to these facilities.

International ships

Research vessels with ice capabilities from other nations that are potentially available to UK researchers.

International stations

Research stations (from field huts to more sophisticated field stations) based in Arctic Rim nations that can potentially be accessed by UK researchers
