About this Journal

Abbreviated title is ‘The Korean Society of Oceanography’. It was Launched in 1996.

This journal was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies Grant funded by the Korean Government (MEST).

The aim of the Sea is to achieve the advancement and dissemination of information in the field of oceanography.It is published quarterly in the end of February, May, August, and November each year.The journal is committed to the publication of original research articles, reviews and notes.The scope of the Sea covers the following fields:

ㆍphysical oceanography: waves, currents, air-sea interaction, ocean modeling, coastal processes, water masses
ㆍbiological oceanography: plankton, benthic organisms, fish, ecology, taxonomy, molecular biology
ㆍchemical oceanography: Trace elements, Isotopes, Nutrients, Organic substances, Gases
ㆍgeological oceanography: geophysics, sedimentology, paleontology, paleogeopraphy, sediment dynamics
ㆍmarine pollution: pollutants analysis and monitoring, fates of contaminants, aquatic toxicology, ecotoxicology
ㆍmarine policy including coastal problems and related fields

Characteristics of the Differences between Significant Wave Height at Ieodo Ocean Research Station and Satellite Altimeter-measured Data over a Decade (2004~2016)

HYE-JIN WOO, KYUNG-AE PARK*, DO-SEONG BYUN, JOOYOUNG LEE AND EUNIL LEE
In order to compare significant wave height (SWH) data from multi-satellites (GFO, Jason-1, Envisat, Jason-2, Cryosat-2, SARAL) and SWH measurements from Ieodo Ocean Research Station (IORS), we constructed a 12 year matchup database between satellite and IORS measuremen... more

Recent Technological Advances in Optical Instruments and Future Applications for in Situ Stable Isotope Analysis of CH4 in the Surface Ocean and Marine Atmosphere

MI-KYUNG PARK AND SUNYOUNG PARK*
The mechanisms of CH4 uptake into and release from the ocean are not well understood due mainly to complexity of the biogeochemical cycle and to lack of regional-scale and/or process-scale observations in the marine boundary layers. Without complete understan... more

Estimation of Net Community Production Based on O2/Ar Measurements

DOSHIK HAHM* AND INHEE LEE
Net community production (NCP), defined as the difference between net primary production and respiration of heterotrophs, has been used as a measure of oceanic biological carbon pump. This paper summarizes ...... more
