About the PRB
The Polar Research Board (PRB) is a unit of the National Academies dedicated to enhancing understanding of the Arctic, Antarctic, and high-latitude regions and providing guidance to Congress, federal agencies, and the nation on cold region issues. The PRB facilitates participation of U.S. scientists in two international, nongovernmental polar scientific organizations–the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). The Board accomplishes its mission by:
- providing a forum for the polar science community to address research needs and policy issues;
- conducting studies and workshops on emerging scientific and policy issues in response to requests from federal agencies and others;
- providing program reviews, guidance, and assessments of priorities, and;
- facilitating communication on polar issues among academia, industry, and government.
