Looking for a holiday gift that is tax deductible and helps to
preserve historic cryospheric data? Adopt a Glacier through NSIDC’s
Archives and Resource Center (ARC) and you’ll receive a personalized
certificate suitable for framing and a fact sheet about the glacier.
All funds go toward the creation of an endowment for the
sustainability of the archives collection and staff.
The Roger G. Barry Archives and Resource Center at the National Snow
and Ice Data Center maintains a unique and rare collection,
documenting early polar exploration and the first scientific
expeditions to the far reaches of our planet. These collections
provide researchers priceless historical insight into how the
Earth’s polar and icy regions have changed. As a soft money funded
organization with no endowment, our facility is under threat.
Traditional funding sources no longer support the collection. Your
donation will help create an endowment to sustain these resources
for research into the future.
Our immediate goal is to raise $25,000 by May 2013. Please support
