The Japanese-Swedish Antarctic Expedition 2007-2008
Project DescriptionJASE (Japanese-Swedish Antarctic Expedition) is a scientific research project to travel along a 2800 km traverse route across the Antarctic ice sheet. 8 Japanese and 9 Swede leave their coastal stations in November 2007 to meet inland after 1400 km long journeys. To undertake scientific missions over the whole traverse route, two crews and several instruments are exchanged at the meeting point. This project is carried out by NIPR (National Institute of Polar Research), Swedish Polar Rresearch Secretariat and Stockholm University as a contribution to IPY (International Polar Year) 2007-2008.
