Unit of Arctic Sea-Ice Prediction T032-760-5335 F032-760-5398

The Arctic Sea Ice Prediction Unit identifies and projects the range of changes in the polar cryosphere and the climate elements progressing at a fast pace.

By using satellite remote sensing, the Unit conducts precise real-time observations on the changing cryosphere. The data that it collects are used to run climate models to provide an accurate forecast of the sea ice’s changing patterns.

In addition, it performs a multidisciplinary study of remote sensing and modeling to develop a system that projects the changes in the polar cryosphere and provides information required for predicting Arctic sea routes. It also tries to project the influence of climate change observed in the polar regions on extreme weather events in the Korean peninsula.
