Abstract
      Because of its dry, cold, stable sky, the South Pole offers distinct advantages for infrared and submillimeter wavelength astronomy. The Center for Astrophysical Research in Antarctica (CARA) has initiated four research projects to investigate the Antarctic Plateau's potential for astronomy at these wavelengths. Remote controlled and automated telescopes will be necessary to operate effectively in the harsh antarctic environment. Better communication to the South Pole, however, is required to permit real-time connections for control and data return. The remoteness and severe conditions of the South Pole offer a good analog to other remote outpost sites, such as a lunar observatory. (Auth.)

Abstract
      A global aerosol climatology is evolving from the NASA satellite experiments SAM II, SAGE I, and SAGE II. In addition, polar stratospheric cloud (PSC) data have been obtained from these experiments over the last decade over both polar regions. This paper describes an updated reference model of the optical characteristics of the background aerosol and proposes a new aerosol reference model derived from the latest available data. The aerosol models are referenced to the height above the tropopause. The impact of a number of volcanic eruptions are described. In addition, a model describing the seasonal, longitudinal and interannual variations in PSCs will be presented. (Auth.)
