[MIS21-06] Toward Future Plan of the Arctic and Antarctic Science
Keywords:Arctic, Antarctic, ice sheet, ocean circulation, global environment
The interaction among the atmosphere, ice sheet, solid earth and ocean is vital to understand the system in the polar regions, and the systematic various field of scientific observations is required to elucidate the interaction. The scientific program and the framework of the integrated multidisciplinary study focused on the polar regions must be developed from the viewpoints of the global environmental changes. Present scientific activities in the polar regions are introduced, and the future direction of the Arctic and Antarctic science are discussed. We will also have discussion time for the session summary.
