The global environmental change is of great interest for both governments and
general public, as well as scientists studying on the earth and planets. The Arctic and the
Antarctic regions significantly affects global environmental variation and also provide
invaluable information on itsthe variation. In the Arctic region, for example, temperature
increase due to the global warming is the largest on the globe. The climate change is
most significantly emerging which causes change of ecology, human economic activity
and life. On the other hand, very little is known on the response of the huge Antarctic ice
sheet of the Antarctic to the global warming, and hence a possible change in Antarctica
on a global scale ility of a huge global change and its prediction are of greatest interest.
Variations in the bipolar regions are not independent but connected through ocean and
atmosphere circulations, and therefore it is necessary to consider them to be one unified system. Moreover, the Arctic and Antarctic regions are the best observation and/or
investigation field for space/planetary sciences, atmospheric/hydrospheric sciences, and
solid earth sciences, indicating that the polar regions are important windows for earth
and planetary sciences. This session is devoted to a forum to present Antarctic and Arctic
sciences in many different aspects. Scientific discussions for building up a proposal for the
master plan 2020 of the Science Council of Japan are expected.
