  1. Surface observation of CH4 in the atmosphere and ocean

    Warming the Arctic surface ocean due to influx of warm Pacific water not only leads to the declining of the sea ice extent but also triggers melting gas hydrate stored in the Arctic Sea floor of the continental shelf areas. Methane (CH4) is the most abundant hydrocarbon in the atmosphere, where it plays a much more effective role as the greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide (CO2). We study to estimate the CH4 fluxes on the interface of air and seawater. The CH4 in the ambient air and the surface water were quantitatively measured along the ship track.

  2. Manganese nodule samples in the East siberian shelf (2019 ARA10C cruise)

    We collected the manganese nodule by dredge to study the distribution of manganese nodule in the East siberian sea, Arctic Ocean.

  3. 2019 Arctic Araon Cruise (ARA10C) sediment cores (multiple, gravity, and box cores)

    Sediment cores during ARA10C were collected for various scientific research including methane cycle, sedimentology, paleontology, microbiology, organic geochemistry, etc.

  3. Radiosonde data at the King Sejong Station in 2018

    Upper air observation has been made once a week at 12 UTC Wednesday from March to mid-November by manual launch of radiosonde. Data consist of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction every two-second up to normally about 20 km. From Nov 16th to end of December, the sounding was carried out 12 UTC everyday as contribution to YOPP-SH special observation. - Analysis of upper air structure over the King Sejong Station, Antarctica - Improvement of weather analysis in Antarctic regions by providing additional upper air data
