Institute of Arctic Climate and Environment Change Research (IACE)

Since the early 1990s, JAMSTEC has played an important role in international science community for Arctic research and has devoted observations in the Arctic Ocean using research vessels, moorings, ice drifting buoys and researches on past, ongoing and future changes in the Arctic region caused by climate change in cooperation with many institutes of Arctic nations and international scientific frameworks. Along with growing concern for global climate change and interests in the Arctic issues, Japan has been admitted to be an Observer of the Arctic Council since 2013 and is expected to make further contribution to the Arctic issues from scientific points of view. IACE’s research and development units are;

1) Arctic Ocean and Climate System Research Unit
2) Arctic Marine Ecosystem Research Unit
3) Arctic Geochemical Cycle Research Unit
4) Pan-Arctic Climate Change Projection Research Unit
5)Arctic Observation Technology Development Unit

With accumulated experiences and expertise in the Arctic research and JAMSTEC’s various facilities such as R/V Mirai, Earth Simulator, and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), IACE aims to provide scientific knowledge, which will enable for stakeholders of the Arctic issues and even the global community to address global climate change.
