Dasan Station, Ny-Ålesund

This was mailed back to me from South Korea's Dasan Station in Ny-Ålesund (Norway) by Dr. Soon Keun Chang of the Korean Polar Research Institute (KOPRI). He is an honorary research scientist with the division of polar earth system sciences. Dasan Station is a seasonal base established in 2002 for conducting environmental research, glacial and periglacial geomorphology, hydrology and atmospheric chemistry. The building is maintained by Kings Bay AS: the company that owns everything in Ny-Alesund. This same building houses the French IPEV Rabot Station.
