Research Infrastructure

Spanish Antarctic Station BAE Juan Carlos I / Base Antártica Española Juan Carlos I

Description This RI is an ICTS (Unique Scientific and Technological Infrastructure), included in the Spanish National Roadmap for RIs. It was opened for scientific use in 1998, and it is fully managed and operated by engineers and technicians from UTM-CSIC since 1999, providing the necessary technical and scientific support and adequate logistics for Spanish National Antarctic research. It is also the starting operational base to sustain other research activities that take place at seasonal camps around the South Shetland Islands, like Byers International Camp and others. The station operates during the austral summer, from November until March, although during the rest of the year the UTM-CSIC keeps continuous recordings from different parameters. The data is sent remotely to the UTM-CSIC facilities in Barcelona.
