Recent Data

  1. Navigation data around Jangbogo station

    Data acquisition for autonomous navigation of exploration robot to detect crevasse

  2. Observations of Carbon Monoxide (CO) in the Western North Pacific and the Bering Sea in 2012

    In summer 2012, we conducted measurements of carbon monoxide (CO) in the marine boundary layer, surface waters, and water column along the western limb of the North Pacific, spanning from the Korean Peninsula to Alaska, USA. These comprehensive datasets include various CO-related parameters such as CDOM absorption coefficients, Chl-a concentration, irradiation, wind speed, and measurement results of CO.

  3. Terrestrial Hyperspectral Reflectance Data and a Spectral Library for Arctic Plant Species

    We provide labeled hyperspectral reflectance datasets for Arctic vegetation. The datasets consist of hyperspectral reflectance spectra for dominant plant species and environment classes (e.g., soil and bareground) in Adventdalen, on the Spitsbergen Island of the Svalbard archipelago. These datasets were constructed by extracting pixel data from hyperspectral images captured using a terrestrial hyperspectral camera (Specim IQ, Specim Ltd., Oulu, Finland). The wavelength range of the data spans from visible to near-infrared (VNIR, 400 nm – 1000 nm), with a total of 204 spectral bands. The pixels associated with the classes were identified and labeled using visual inspection and field surveys. Ten classes were investigated, including Dryas octopetala (Leaf), Dryas octopetala (Flower), Eriophorum scheuchzeri (Leaf), Eriophorum scheuchzeri (Leaf), Cassiope tetragona (Flower), Cassiope tetragona (Dead), Equisetum arvense (Leaf), Salix polaris (Leaf), Soil (Mixed), and Bareground. The spectral library was developed using the average spectra of each class.

  1. 2D airglow intensity and mesopause temperature from MTM, 2023

    Two dimensional OH airglow intensity and temperature around 87km altitude at King Sejong Station, Antarctica. Studies of the atmospheric wave activities and mesopause temperature tendency in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT) over the southern high latitude.

  2. Climate Measurement Around the King Sejong Station, Antarctica in 2015

    Meteorological observation was carried out at the King Sejong Station in 2015. Observational elements are composed of wind, air temperature, relative humidity, station level atmospheric pressure, horizontal global solar radiation, longwave radiation, UV radiation, and precipitation. Goals of this observation are 1) to understand meteorological phenomena and 2) to monitor climate change at Antarctic Peninsula. These data are recorded automatically then examined by meteorological expert at the station to be produced as a daily, monthly, and annual report. To understand weather phenomema and to monitor at Antarctic Peninsula

  3. Empirical projection of global sea level in 2050 driven by Antarctic and Greenland ice mass variations

    This data supplement the paper entitled 'Empirical projection of global sea level in 2050 driven by Antarctic and Greenland ice mass variations' by Lee et al. (2023).
