Gateway Antarctica

Gateway Antarctica is the Centre for Antarctic Studies and Research at the University of Canterbury.

We aim to enhance understanding of Antarctica in the context of the global environment. The centre is a focal point for Antarctic study, attracting national and international participation in collaborative research, analysis, learning and networking.

The centre plays a leading role in national and international Antarctic research projects. This includes areas such as engineering in extreme environments, Antarctica's role in climate change, connections between Antarctica and New Zealand and human influences in and on Antarctica. We play an important role in policy advice and advocacy and participate in international forums.
