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