Korea Polar Ocean in Rapid Transition (K-PORT) (2011-2016) / Kang; Sung-Ho

Principal Investigator

Project Period
The bi-polar oceans (the Arctic and the Antarctic) are globally linked, not only through the exchange of water and atmosphere but also by the fluxes and dispersal of flora and fauna between the two polar regions. Both regions are experiencing profound changes under the present warming conditions and are predicted to be even more highly impacted in future global changes. To understand how climate variability and change will affect these bipolar ocean systems, it is essential to understand the role as well as the mechanisms that link the biogeochemical, geological, and physical structure and transport processes between the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. The Korean bipolar ocean program using R/V ARAON (K-PORT), funded by the Korean Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, has been developed to detect the changes of the structure and processes in the water column and subsurface in the Arctic (Bering, Chukchi, East Siberian and Beaufort Seas) and the Antarctic (Ross Sea) regions.
