Most of the polar research effort of those previous international scientific cooperations had been in the Arctic. The IGY, scheduled for , would focus on the Antarctic, and most of the major nations on Earth were expected to participate. In January the U.S. Navy sent the U.S.S. Atka to Antarctica to look for potential base sites.

A deep ice core project at Kunlun Station commenced drilling in Januaryaiming to reconstruct long-term. Antarctica, a vast region encompassing million km2 ( million mi2), is considered to be one of the most important scientific laboratories on Earth.

During the past 60 years, the USGS, in collaboration and with logistical support from the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs, has sent USGS scientists to Antarctica to work on a wide range of projects: personnel.
