    Chronological table showing the history of maritime science in Korea and the world.

  • Maritime observation and forecasting
    World Maritime Observation System :
    Introduce the concept and operational backgrounds of GOOS (Global Ocean Observing System).
    Maritime Observation Platform :
    Introduce the function of ARGO (Array for Real-time Geostrophic Oceanography) and exhibit buoy.
    Korea National Maritime Observation Network :

  • Exploration of Deep Sea
    Virtual world of deep sea :

    Haemirae and Haenubi :
    The process of the development of deep sea submersibles as well as views of the deep sea are shown.

    The Ocean System Safety Research Center in KORDI (Korea Ocean Research & Development Institute) donated the model of Haemirae.

    The Clarion-Clipperton Waters* :
    Introduce the deep sea manganese nodule mining area exclusively owned by Korea and deep sea light concentrating system.
    The Clarion-Clipperton Waters :
    In 2002, Korea acquired sole mining right for the 75,000㎢ area located 2,000㎞ southeast from Hawaii. In the 40,000㎢ area first designated for mining, the rate of probable manganese nodule ore reserves is 7㎏ per 1㎡, and the total potential quantity is 275 million tons. Supposing that the yearly production is 3 million tons, its import substitution effect will be 1.4 trillion won.
