What does it take to support world-leading interdisciplinary research in the Polar Regions? Simon Garrod, Director of Operations at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), will give an overview of the complexities, challenges, frustrations and rewards of managing Polar Operations.

BAS operates three research stations in the Antarctic, two on sub Antarctic South Georgia and one in the Arctic. Research platforms include two ice-strengthened Royal Research Ships, five specially adapted aircraft and various off-the-shelf and specialised vehicles.

Over the last 25 years Simon has worked for a number of different organisations in the Antarctic and Arctic covering a variety of roles.
