    Get this from a library! The state of the poles: climate lessons from the International Polar Year. [Christian Bjørnæs; Pål Prestrud] -- This book presents the findings from the International Polar Year (), one of the largest ever coordinated research programs covering the earth's polar regions. The IMO mandatory Polar Code will be a seminal and historic international governance regime for the polar seas. During the implementation phase of the Code from , it is hoped the United States, as chair of the Arctic Council, will lead the Arctic states in advocacy for the Code within the global maritime community and to a global audience.

    “International Polar Year” – a series of books, published in Russian by the publishing house “Paulsen.” It includes, on the one hand, the basic works and, on the other hand, diaries and regional works, which became classics during the life of the authors, but not published for a long time. Annals of the International Geophysical Year, Volume I: The Histories of the International Polar Years and the Inception and Development of the International Geophysical Year covers the significant contributions of remarkable scientific enterprises known as the First and Second International Polar Years.

    The International Polar Years and the International Geophysical Year represented a remarkable international collaborative scientific effort that has been largely neglected by historians. This groundbreaking collection seeks to redress that neglect and illuminate critical aspects of the last years of international scientific endeavour.

International Polar Year (IPY) was an intense, coordinated field campaign of observations, research, and analysis. It was the largest, most comprehensive campaign ever mounted to explore Earth's polar domains.

The current IPY is, technically, not a year, it’s two (March –March ); the two years allow for two full field seasons at both poles. Like its predecessors, this IPY is also a major international, interdisciplinary scientific effort targeted at better understanding the polar regions.

The First IPY, from toinvolved 11 nations and was the first coordinated international polar research activity ever undertaken, inspiring subsequent international research was a Second IPY in involving 40 nations, and a Third IPY in (67 nations) that was also called the International Geophysical Year or IGY because it included research outside the.
