Main Antarctic Facilities
operated by National Antarctic Programs in the Antarctic Treaty Area (South of 60° latitude South)
Updated 18 November 2013
Important Information: 
The publication of details of these facilities does not imply any right of use. The facilities are established and maintained by National Antarctic Programs strictly for their own use – they are not designed or provided for use by others. Prior agreement must be obtained to use facilities maintained by another operator. In particular, requests for access to airfields must comply with the procedures for coordination, approval and information described in the Antarctic Flight Information Manual published by COMNAP. For more information, contact the COMNAP Secretariat (https://www.comnap.aq  or  sec@comnap.aq)
Furthermore, the relevant legal instruments and authorisation procedures adopted by the states party to the Antarctic Treaty regulating access to the Antarctic Treaty Area, that is to all areas between 60 and 90 degrees of latitude South, have to be complied with. For more information, contact the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat (http://www.ats.aq)
Notes: 
(1) Skiways are generally not maintained all year-round. In many cases they are prepared only when and as required by National Programs. Airfield information is extracted from the Antarctic Flight Information Manual (AFIM) published and maintained by COMNAP. See https://www.comnap.aq/publications/afim
(2) Facility Types are:
- Station: an established installation with fixed buildings and mechanical services – reticulated power, water and sewage, etc...;
- Camp: a more basic and less permanent installation, such as a group of tents/ shelters, often used only for a small number of seasons;
- Refuge: usually a small and very basic installation, sometimes only one small hut, but usually of a permanent nature;
- Airfield Camp: an installation, whatever its size and type, attached to an airfield – if the airfield is not attached to a station, camp or refuge that is already listed separately;
- Depot: a depot of food, fuel or other supply.
(3) Current Status options are:
- Year-round: opened all year round – winter and summer;
- Seasonal: opened Seasonally only – typically opened every summer or most summers;
- Temporarily Closed: closed temporarily and ready to be re-opened as and when required;
- Closed: closed indefinitely – but at least part of the facility still exists and could be renovated and/or re-used;
- No Longer Exists:  the facility no longer exists;
- Under Construction: under construction – work has commenced;
- Under Consideration: construction planned but no construction has commenced.
(4) Peak population - the maximum number of persons present at the facility at any one time. This will typically be the number of persons accommodated/based at the facility at the busiest time of the summer. This can be higher or lower than the nominal accommodation capacity of the facility.
