For a five year period, the new IASC Secretariat will be hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) for Polar and Marine Research. The new contact information is below.
The AWI is Germany's leading institute for polar and marine research. The AWI conducts research in the Arctic, the Antarctic, and at temperate latitudes. It coordinates polar research in Germany and provides both the necessary equipment and the essential logistic back-up for polar expeditions.
The AWI Research Unit Potsdam started operating in 1992. Its main fields of research are terrestrial geoscience in the periglacial regions (at the margins of inland ice sheets and in permafrost areas), as well as experimental investigations and modeling of atmospheric processes in the polar regions. These studies complement the predominantly marine program of the AWI in Bremerhaven. The AWI Potsdam is part of the historic science campus Albert Einstein on the Telegrafenberg, southeast of Potsdam city center.
