Science On The Ice: The United States Antarctic Program

August 2017

ABOUT

Co-created with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs (OPP), Science on the Ice: The United States Antarctic Program (3rd Edition) is a full-color 70-page book highlighting United States' science and operations in Antarctica. The book is intended for "Distinguished Visitors" to Antarctica — members of federal agencies, legislators, and high-ranking public officials.

The book content was authored by NSF program officers with each section featuring text, photographs, maps, and featured content from preeminent researchers in their respective fields. My contribution included both content and complication including the creative design, technical book layout, photograph editing, maps, and working with the print publisher.

The book, in essence, is a no-glitz tour of Antarctica. It features sections on research station and research vessel operations, transportation fleets (aircraft, etc.), environmental protection, and USAP research in various disciplines including biology, geology, and atmospheric sciences.

This book was printed by Bookmobile, an online publisher out of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
