Project Period
Recently, a number of international, large-scale, multidisciplinary research have been carried out on Antarctic inland in order to solve the global issues of climate and environmental changes. In 2014, Korea Polar Research Institute(KOPRI) built the Antarctic Jang Bogo station, the second Korean Antarctic research station on Victoria land, East Antarctica. This was a landmark in Korean Antarctic research and field work. From 2017, KOPRI launched a new project for Antarctic inland research. This project includes: 1) expedition of traverse route into Antarctic inland, 2) development of Polar research facilities and technologies for inland research activities and 3) sampling of deep ice core and subglacial lake water and sediments.
