Recently Data

  1. Surface temperature, Humidity, Pressure at the GPS stations around the Jang Bogo Station

    Year-round records of temperature, humidity, pressure at the GPS stations around the Jang Bogo Station

  2. Climate Measurement Around the King Sejong Station, Antarctica in 2018

    Meteorological observation was carried out at the King Sejong Station in 2018. Observational elements are composed of wind, air temperature, relative humidity, station level atmospheric pressure, 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 phenomena and to monitor climate variability at Antarctic Peninsula

  3. Ice sheet monitoring GPS data around the Jang Bogo Station in 2018

    Remotely operating GPS system Investigation of the behaviour of ice sheet

Popular Data

  1. Data for observation and prediction to model responses of Antarctic pearlwort (남극개미자리 모델링을 위한 관측치와 예측치 원시 데이터)

    In order to model the distribution and physiological response of Antarctic pearlwort, we obtained 1,150 data points (Po, average 96.7) of distributions and physiological response observations in the vicinity of Sejong Station, King George Island, Antarctica in 2016. In addition, we obtained 1,150 data points (Pe, average 133.1) of expected values made from modeling equation for this species. With these data, the prediction accuracy of the model acquired in 2017 was 72.6%. 남극개미자리의 분포와 생리반응 모델링을 위해 2016년 남극 킹조지섬 세종기지 부근에 분포하는 남극개미자리 분포와 생리반응 관측치 1150건 확보(Po, 평균값 96.7), 이들의 시뮬레이션을 통한 예측치 1150건 확보(Pe, 평균값 133.1). 이들 데이터를 활용하여 2017년 확보한 모델의 예측 정확도는 72.6%.

    Continuous broadband seismic data recorded on Korea Polar Seismic network To monitor the activites of Mt. Melbourne and glacial movements

  3. Upper air observation data at Jang Bogo Station during YOPP-SH(Year of Polar Prediction-Southern Hemisphere) in 2018/19

    Upper air observation is made once a day at 1800UTC during YOPP-SH (from 16 NOV. 2018 and 11 FEB 2019) by using auto and manual lauch of radio sondes. Data of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction are sampled and recorded every a second. The minimum observation height is over 20 km. Monitoring of changes in meteorological variables with altitude over Jang Bogo station
