Antarctic Activities 2001-2002

This site fulfills the annual obligation of the United States of America as an Antarctic Treaty signatory to report its activities taking place in Antarctica. This portion, Modifications to Plans 2001-2002, supplements Planned Activities for July 2001 through June 2002 published elsewhere on this site.

United States Antarctic Activities

Introduction
Organization and content of this site respond to articles III(1) and VII(5) of the Antarctic Treaty. Format is as prescribed in the Annex to Antarctic Treaty Recommendation VIII-6, as amended by Recommendation XIII-3. The National Science Foundation, an agency of the U.S. Government, manages and funds the United States Antarctic Program. This program comprises almost the totality of publicly supported U.S. antarctic activities—performed mainly by scientists (often in collaboration with scientists from other Antarctic Treaty nations) based at U.S. universities and other Federal agencies; operations performed by firms under contract to the Foundation; and military logistics by units of the Department of Defense. Activities such as tourism sponsored by private U.S. groups or individuals are included. In the past, some private U.S. groups have arranged their activities with groups in another Treaty nation; to the extent that these activities are known to NSF, they are included. Visits to U.S. Antarctic stations by non-governmental groups are described in Section XVI. This document is intended primarily for use as a Web-based file, but can be printed using the PDF option. Its internal cross links and links to other sites present more information than in the print publications of past years. These links also are intended to facilitate easy use of the site.

United States Antarctic Activities Modifications of Activities Planned for 2001-2002 I. Ships and Aircraft

I. Ships and Aircraft
Section I of the Modifications of Activities Planned for 2001-2002 lists any changes to ship and aircraft usage planned for this time period.

Ships
The US Coast Guard Icebreaker Polar Sea arrived at the ice edge near McMurdo on January 05 to assist the Polar Star with ice clearing due to extremely heavy ice conditions in the Ross Island area.

Aircraft
A USAF C-130 aircraft from 50th EA Squadron, Little Rock, Arkansas deployed to Christchurch, NZ to fly 11 turnaround missions between Christchurch and McMurdo Station. The use of this C-130 during December 01 and January 02 allowed the 109th AW LC-130’s to remain on the continent. A USAF C-17 aircraft ran (2) turnaround missions in February 02 to transport a backlog of cargo that was discharged from the M/V Green Wave in New Zealand.

Other
In addition, several other organizations conducted or supported tourism activities in the Antarctic during the 2001-2002 season. Although some of these organizations are not U.S. based, some American citizens were involved in their planned activities and for this reason are reported here.

SHIPBORNE
a) Hapag-Lloyd Cruises of Hamburg, Germany, operated two vessels in the Antarctic Peninsula. The Hanseatic conducted 6 cruises, while the Bremen conducted 8cruises.

LANDBASED
Adventure Network International (ANI), a Canadian company with an office in Boca Raton, Florida, conducted several 11-17-day excursions to the interior of the Antarctic continent. Travel from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Adventure Network's Patriot Hills base camp (80°20'S, 81°20'W) was via a South African chartered C-130 cargo/passenger aircraft. These various inland excursions occurred during November 2001 - mid-January 2002 using two chartered Twin Otters and their own Cessna C-A185F aircraft.
