Graduate University for Advanced Studies, The
School of Advanced Sciences
Polar science requires interdisciplinary approaches that include space and upper atmosphere physics, meteorology, glaciology, oceanography, geochemistry, geology, geomorphology, solid earth geophysics, meteoritics, biology and polar regions engineering. The Department of Polar Science aims to educate students and to conduct researches on physical, chemical, biological and geological processes and interactions in both arctic and antarctic regions. These scientific investigations are associated with broadly interpreting the magnetosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, in a global context.
