SIPRE – Snow, Ice and Permafrost, Research Establishment

SIPRE began in United States Army Corps of Engineer in 1949. Their job was to “conduct basic and applied research in snow, ice and frozen ground.” As we became more entrenched in establishing a solid presence in Greenland, snow, ice ,and frozen ground research became critical to establishing logistics in and around the region. Researchers within SIPRE heavily participated in developing Camp Century, Greenland.
