IPY: International Polar Year

× Important: This initiative is completed and no longer accepting submissions.

The International Polar Year 2007-2009 officially began on 1 March 2007, in the U.S. and internationally. Scientific research and educational activities were planned for IPY to advance our understanding of Earth's polar regions and how they impact the rest of the world. See this Introduction to IPY.

GLOBE students were able to participate in IPY activities through a number of field campaigns and Earth System Science Projects.

As additional IPY activities are planned in connection with GLOBE projects, they will be added to this page.
