Abstract
Jeju Research Institute of Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST) is participating in the Marine Global Earth Observatory (MarineGEO) project for the first time in Korea in cooperation with Smithsonian Institution from USA, Hong Kong University and Ryukyu University. The MarineGEO, directed by the Smithsonian Institutions Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network (TMON), is the first long-term, worldwide research program to focus on understanding coastal marine life and its role in maintaining resilient ecosystems around the world. This project is a growing global partnership committed to 1) cataloguing nearshore marine biodiversity, 2) documenting how and why its changing, and 3) understanding the consequences of that change for ecosystem functioning and resilience using the Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS). The ARMS were developed during the Census of Marine Life (CoML) international initiative. Since the CoML, the ARMS project has expanded on a global scale and the ARMS have been adopted as a key biodiversity assessment tool by NOAAs National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) and Ocean Acidification Programs climate monitoring stations in the Pacific. KIOST installed ARMS in Jeju and Ulleungdo Island in August and September 2018, respectively. We will also be installed in areas where environmental problems such as flatfish farms and sewage treatment plants are caused in Jeju Hong Kong University and Ryukyu University.
