As part of Southern Ocean GLOBEC (Global Ocean Ecosystem and Dynamics) sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Ocean Research and co-sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, the research program of Sea Ice and Penguin Study (SEPENS) had been conducted at Syowa Station area. The program was promoted from 1995/6 to 1999/2000 season as one of the 5 years-core projects of Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition(JARE)aiming to understand how Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) respond to change of ice condition through their foraging and breeding behavior as indicator species of marine ecosystem changes.
