Abstract
The Ieodo Ocean Research Station (IORS) has been established and being in operation since June 2003, the first open-ocean research tower station in Korea. The IORS is located in the northeast part of the East China Sea and more than half of typhoons which affect the Korean peninsula pass through the IORS area. In 2012, Bolaven was the strongest typhoon which passed the IORS, produced maximum wave height of 17.3 m, gust wind speed of 45.3 m/s and air pressure dropped to 944 hPa. Equipped with more than 30 different types of instruments, the IORS is observing more than 40 different variables of oceanic and atmospheric parameters (wind, air temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, wave, sea temperature andsalinity, turbulence, etc). Currently there are about 15 on-going research subjects for the IORS, including studying the typhoons, air-sea interactions, transportations of air pollutant particles, sea-fog formations, changes of the biological environment, ocean acidification, etc. We anticipate that the IORS would be one of the reference stations for monitoring global climate change, and to do so, the IORS have a lot of tasks to be taken Lastly, our paper will introduce someof the noticeable accomplishments from the IORS works and the future plans for international cooperative works for enhancing and expanding the functions and applications part of the IORS. typhoons which affect the Korean peninsula pass through the IORS area.
