Second Circular

The 25th International Symposium on Polar Sciences organized by 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.

We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and perspectives on future outlook in Polar research. Detailed information on our symposium is available at symposium website (www.kopri.re.kr/symposium/).

THEME AND SESSIONS

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 became one of the world’s busiest 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”.

The following six sessions are proposed. Detailed information is on symposium website.

  • 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
