Who We Are: About NOMAD Science

NOMAD Science: Northern Mongolia Adventure and Discovery in Science is an international, interdisciplinary research program based in the remote, but stunningly beautiful Darkhad Depression, northern Mongolia.

Formerly known as the Northern Mongolia Archaeology Project (NMAP), NOMAD Science seeks to use scientific inquiry to explore the natural and cultural resources of northern Mongolia through research and conservation efforts.

We work with local and international stakeholders, professionals, students, life-long-learners, volunteers, and tourists to produce high quality, data driven research and teach professional field research skills. In the process, we also create memorable experiences and lifelong friendships.
