Participate in the symposium
Korea’s first icebreaking research vessel, Araon, was launched in 2009 and made her official maiden voyage to the Antarctica in 2010. Since then, she has made a series of research and supply cruises and became one of the world’s busiest research icebreaker, spending 294 days in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. 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”.
