The Byrd Polar Research Center (BPRC) at The Ohio State University is recognized internationally as a leader in polar and alpine research. Our research programs are conducted throughout the world. The Center is named in honor of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, America's most famous polar explorer. There are ten research groups at BPRC, along with a Library, Archival Program, the US Polar Rock Repository, and a team of support staff. Research at the Center focuses on the role of cold regions in the Earth's overall climate system, and encompasses geological sciences, geochemistry, glaciology, paleoclimatology, meteorology, remote sensing, ocean dynamics, and the history of polar exploration. In addition, BPRC maintains the Byrd Post Doctoral Fellowship Program, provides research opportunities and support for a number of graduate and undergraduate students, offers seminars and lectures on a frequent basis, and maintains a public Education Outreach program.
