Welcome to the IceBoard, an online forum for discussing topics related to Antarctica and the polar regions.
Please use good “netiquette” when posting messages. Remember, there is a real person at the other end, possibly a child. Offensive language, vulgar user names, spam, porno, sales pitches, and garbage postings will be deleted.
All forums are moderated. If you’re unfamiliar with moderated bulletin boards, the idea is to keep the conversations civil and on-topic. This is a friendly board, not an appropriate venue for personal attacks or hostile “flame” wars. While we will not censor legitimate, respectful conversations, abusive users may be asked to cool it or have their posts edited.
Messages that are off-topic may be moved to other categories or split off into their own thread. If your conversational thread vanishes, don’t panic! It may have just been moved somewhere else.

This board does not represent Raytheon Polar Services Company (RPSC), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP), the indigenous fauna of Antarctica (penguins and seals), or any other person, agency, company, contractor, organization or government. While many of the posts may discuss these topics, the views and opinions expressed are those of the users only.
We do not guarantee the veracity of any material presented on this web site. In fact, some of it is probably just plain wrong.
