An observational study of air-sea interaction in sea ice areas of the Sea of Okhotsk and the Antarctic Ocean is the main theme of this group. Air-sea interactions make significant contributions to climate variations, especially in higher latitude due to the presence of sea ice. However, our knowledge about air-sea interactions in the ice-covered ocean is still limited. The Okhotsk Sea and the Southern Ocean are vulnerable to the climate changes. We approach this theme from in-situ observations and remotely-sensed data analyses.
