The King Sejong Station has been on King George Island since 1988. It focuses on ocean re- search and the investigation of ecosystems along the coasts, whilst the latest science centre will primarily be devoted to geographical and climate research from now on. The Jang Bogo Station should also serve as a platform for experiments, where engineers and scien- tists will be able to test their instruments, equipment, new materials or robots under extraordinary tempera- ture conditions. After an intensive search for a location, the selection of Terra Nova Bay in Victoria Land, a region in the east of Antarctica situated south of New Zealand on the Ross Sea, means that an area has been chosen which is relatively free of ice, but which is still exposed to ex- treme climate conditions. In addition to temperatures of down to -40 degrees Celsius, strong wind condi-
