JB-LTER 2020-2022

The Jang Bogo Long-term Ecological Research 2020-2022 (JB-LTER 2020-2022)

- Studies on Coastal Marine Biodiversity and Changing Ecosystems around Jang Bogo Station, Ross Sea, Antarctica



 

We have been planed to determine biodiversity and the present ecosystem status/change of Antarctic coastal environments, especially around Jang Bogo Station (JBS) by quantifying spatial/temporal variability on a regular basis, to investigate and understand the present adaptation of Antarctic organisms and status of ecosystem using multi-level approaches, and further to predict future impacts in this project JB-LTER 2020-2022.

 

 

 

The main goal is to address how coastal marine biodiversity and ecosystem around JBS responds to environmental change. We are focusing on the following sub-goals:

Observation and analysis of spatiotemporal changes in glacier, sea ice, and polynya around JBS using satellite remote sensing

Oceanographic survey around JBS coastal region to investigate the interaction of glacier, sea ice, and coastal ecosystem

  - Investigation of physical and biogeochemical properties of marine environments under sea ice and around Campbell glacier

  - Long-term monitoring of physical and biogeochemical properties at the super station near JBS

  - Application of a simple ecosystem model to quantify the interaction between glacier, sea ice and coastal ecosystem

Ecosystem response to environmental change

  - Study on population dynamics of Antarctic scallop and south polar skua and its long-term change in JBS coastal region

  - Development of a model for prediction of Interaction between the environmental variations and the coastal ecosystems around JBS and Campbell glacier by climate change
