Summary
Abstract: Atmospheric Methane concentrations were measured at the Syowa Station in Antarctica by the National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR) and the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE).

The purpose of this research was to study the year-to-year variation of the Antarctic atmosphere-sea-ice interaction. The programs consist of satellite data acquisition (NOAA data from 1980 and MOS-1 from 1989), observations of clouds and precipitation, and monitoring of minor atmospheric constituents.
