Division of Polar Ocean Sciences T032-760-5390 F032-760-5390

The Polar Ocean Sciences Division pursues joint international research by using the icebreaking research vessel Araon and researches on the current circulation of the Antarctic and Arctic oceans, sea ice and marine ecosystems, and the fluctuating cycle of biogeochemical material.

It tries to support efforts toward the better understanding of the effects of the rapid climate changes in polar marine environments facing considerable transformation and to identify a pattern. It also identifies the relationship between environmental changes and global-scale climate changes.
