The NSF funding was under the joint sponsorship of the U.S. Arctic Research Program (Division of Polar Programs) and the U.S. International Biological Program (Ecosystem Analysis Program). The U.S. Tundra Biome Program was under the overall direction of Jerry Brown of the U .S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory and consisted of aquatic and terrestrial sections.
