A Geophysical Institute has been established by act of Congress at the University of Alaska to continue arctic research begun there in 1929 and carried on since then in cooperation with the Carnegie Institution of Washington and the Office of Scientific Research and Development. Early in 1949 construction of a Geophysical Observatory will begin. University funds assigned to the Observatory and contracts, in force or proposed, with other groups and agencies may bring the annual budget to a half million dollars within the year. The University's new Graduate School of Sciences will coordinate its work with the Institute in a broad attack on arctic physical problems.
