- The King George Island in the northern Antarctic Peninsula (1 GPS/Seismic station)
- The Bransfield Strait from Dec. 2005 to Dec. 2007 (5 moored hydrophones)
- The Eastern Scotia Sea from Dec. 2007 to Dec. 2008 (5 moored hydrophones)
- The Bransfield Strait since Dec. 2008 (5 moored hydrophones)
- Deploying a hydrophone array consisting 5 hydrophones in the Bransfield Strait during 2005-2007.
- Moving the array to the Eastern Scotia Sea in 2008.
- Moving the array to the Bransfield Strait again in 2009.
Principal Science Objectives
- Constructing and maintaining a polar wide-range monitoring network using Autonomous Underwater Hydrophones (AUHs) and seismic network.
- Monitoring submarine tectonic activity.
- Detecting alteration in the submarine environment in order to delineate characteristics of various geodynamics and evolutionary process of regional tectonics.
- Developing a hydrophone system working in extreme condition.
- Developing location and discrimination systems between tectonic and glacial earthquakes.
- Observing thousands of swarm events occurring in the Bransfield Strait
