  1. ARA07B cruise Arctic aerosol data

    Simultaneous measurements of aerosol chemical composition and fluorescence properties of water-soluble organic carbon (WSOC), together with a hydrographic survey, were carried out in the western Arctic Ocean during the summer of 2016 to improve our understanding of the characteristics of atmospheric WSOC.

  2. Temporal variation of marine phytoplankton in the surface water of the Antarctic Jang Bogo Station in Terra Nova Bay, July 2022 - December 2022

    As a research on the ecology of phytoplankton in the coastal waters of the Jang Bogo Station in Antarctica, the community of phytoplankton and the temporal influences of environmental factors. The temporal influences of environmental factors on marine phytoplankton community were investigated in the Jang Bogo Station in Antarctica. Investigation of marine phytoplankton biomass in the coastal waters around the Jang Bogo Station in Antarctica for the monitoring by environmental change in the surface sea water conducted.

  3. Neutral wind and temperature from FPI, King Sejong Station, Antarctica, 2020

    Horizontal neutral wind around 87km, 97km, and 250km measured from Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) at King Sejong Station Study of the atmosphere wave activities in the upper atmosphere in the southern high-latitude

  1. Sedimentological and geochemical analyses of gravity cores from Antarctic Peninsula region (KARP 1996-2006)

    This dataset includes sedimentological and geochemical analyses of more than 80 gravity cores retrieved from Antarctic Peninsula region during the KARP (Korea Antarctic Research Program) cruise from 1996 to 2006. The cores are generally shorter than 10 m and represent late Pleistocene and Holocene sedimentation. The following data were obtained for all cores: magnetic susceptibility, X-radiographs, granulometry, total carbon and nitrogen content, and total organic and inorganic carbon content. Chronology of the cores were determined by AMS radiocarbon dating method. For selected cores, diatom assemblage, trace and rare earth element concentration, stable and radiogenic isotope compositions were analyzed.

  2. 2004 Seismic Data, Antarctica

    Korean Antarctic survey carried out the fifth year project as step 3 project in the last annual of ‘The Antarctic Undersea Geological Survey’ was conducted in the northern Fowell Basin of the Weddell Sea. The research period was from 25 Nov. to 9 Dec. (15 days) in 2004. Geophysical research including acquisition of multi-channel seismic data was preceded. According to the results of seismic investigation, the drilling investigation was conducted at the coring point. We took on lease Russian "Yuzhmorgeologiya"(5500 ton, ice strengthed vessel) and 12 researcher in the cruise.

  3. 1999 Sediment Core, Antarctica

    Korean Antarctic survey was conducted in the continental margin off the Anvers Island of the northwestern Antarctic Peninsula. The research period was from 25 Nov. in 1999 to 3 Jan. in 2000 (8 days). We took on Korean R/V "Onnuri" (KORDI) and 13 researchers participated in the cruise, including acquisition of multichannel seismic, gravity, and magnetometer as well as a detailed samplings (box cores, gravity cores, and grab samples). 1. Geophysical researches (Multichannel seismic, SBP, gravity, and magnetometer surveys) 2. Paleoceanographic researches
