Polar Research Operations Board prioritisation framework (PDF)
If you cannot open or read this document, you can ask for a different format.
This sets out an approach to how the use of polar infrastructure should be prioritised.
This is intended as a framework to inform discussions and prioritisation by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) PROB and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) operations teams, rather than a definitive decision making process, noting the many practical considerations needed in planning polar operations.
This prioritisation framework will be reviewed regularly by PROB to ensure it remains fit for purpose.
