Antarctic Digital Magnetic Anomaly Project by multi-national scientific communities                                                                Last updated: Aug. 20th, 2016
Overview

ADMAP has been providing a unique opportunity for integrating scientific research and investigations over Antarctica last several years. ADMAP has the potential to enable a broad range of scientific communities all over the world to have greatly aided geologic studies  of Antarcitca where almost 99% of the continent is covered by ice and snow. In particular, international attention to the Antarctic is paid considerable because of the central role of its tectonic and geologic researches in both Gondwana and Rodinia evolution, and the fact that it is the most poorly understood region of the planet.  As of consequence, numerous near-surface magnetic surveys carried out by the multi-national scientific communities are very critical to unveil  the  evolutionary history of both paleo-continents.  In addition, the state-of-art magnetic satellite missions have been carried out to augment the gaps where near-surface surveys were not done yet.  Accordingly, ADMAP was launched in 1995 to compile and integrate into a digital database all exisiting near-surface and satellite mangetic anomaly data collected in Antarctica and surrounding oceans south of 60 degree.  Since then, ADMAP Working Group has been updating the databases with additional surveys as well as investigating the areas of special interest.

This website was recently updated to give more information on recent progress for ADMAP-2. 
KOPRI (Korea Polar Research Institute) will take care of the site security and contents to be
updated in the future.

'Publications' is updated with your publications collected through the web.  Please check these
out if all info were correct (I put all the lists related to 'Antarctic' , not to 'Antarctic magnetic').

We are so sorry for your inconvenience in using ADMAP website hosted in OSU server.
OSU geology deparment recently was expanded into School of Earth Sciences and subsequently
changed their computational systems.  Unfortunately, they were missing our website information
when they transferred huge files to another.
If you have any info or data for 'news' or 'publications' sections, I would appreciate for your
updates with emails.  Thanks so much for your interests and concerns  - webmaster
