Pre-publication copies can be ordered before 31 March 2011 (extended deadline) at a substantially reduced price of CAN$ 175 from the CCI Press (order form http://www.uofaweb.ualberta.ca/cci//pdf/IPYSum-PrePubExtended1Mar.pdf). Only a limited number of copies of the report will be printed; there will be no further opportunity to secure a copy of this landmark volume once the print run has been set.
In April 2011, the ICSU-WMO Joint Committee for the
International Polar Year (IPY) will publish a summary of IPY activities
in which the Committee and associated teams were directly involved.
Comprising 38 chapters in five parts (Planning, Research, Observations,
Outreach, and Legacies), the report covers the development of IPY
2007–2008 for almost a decade, from 2001 till summer 2010. It has
engaged hundreds of contributing authors from all disciplines and more
than 20 nations. This broad overview demonstrates the extensive and
essential contribution made by participating nations and organizations,
and provides a prospective blueprint for future polar research.
