Activities British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is a component of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, it has, for over 60 years, undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research on and around the Antarctic continent. It now shares that continent with scientists from over thirty countries.
The current BAS science research strategy is called Polar Science for Planet Earth (PSPE). The strategy was based on proposals from staff and consists of 6 integrated programmes. In addition the competitive Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI) provides access to Antarctica for BAS and NERC staff and the UK university community.
