The 25th International Symposium on Polar Sciences, organized by the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI), will be held on May 13-15, 2019 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. This Symposium aims to bring polar scientists together to discuss their research findings and to promote international collaborative research. KOPRI cordially invites you to share your knowledge and perspectives on the future outlook in Polar research.
Korea’s first icebreaking research vessel, Araon, was launched in 2009 and made her official maiden voyage to the Antarctic in 2010. Since then, she has made a series of research and supply cruises and became one of the world’s busiest research icebreakers, spending nearly 300 days away at sea every year. With Araon, KOPRI has devoted its passion and commitment to unveil the mysteries of Polar regions. In commemoration of the scientific dedication over the years, and celebrating the 10th anniversary of Araon, the theme of the 25th International Symposium on Polar Sciences will be “Araon’s Journey through the Decade: Findings in Ocean, Earth and Paleoclimate Science”.
The following six sessions are proposed:
- Response of the Southern Ocean to the Changing Climate
- Changing Arctic Ocean: Understanding the impacts of climate changes and their global consequences
- Geological and Geophysical (& Biological) processes in Circum‐Antarctic Ridges
- Rapid change in Arctic sub‐seabed
- Late Quaternary Ocean‐Cryosphere interactions in the Antarctic Ocean
- Past analogue for future Arctic: Glacial and oceanographic perspective
