The Polar Environment Research Theme is a multidisciplinary network of University of Otago scientists with an interest in polar regions.

Due to its ideal location, the university has developed a particularly strong connection with Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, and the theme members are actively involved in Antarctica New Zealand and the New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute.
