Improved scientific ballooning applied to the cryo-sampling experiment at Syowa Station

元データ 国立極地研究所

概要

On January 3, 1998, a large balloon (30000 m^3) was successfully launched at Syowa Station for the cryo-sampling of the stratospheric atmosphere. The sampling system splashed down in the Liitzow-Holm Bay and recovered by icebreaker SHIRASE. The cryo-sampling at Antarctica was the first trial in the world and the recovery of a heavy payload was also the first challenge at Syowa Station. A lot of new ballooning technologies were applied to this operation, such as compact balloon launching equipments, a reliable recovery system, a handy ground radio station for the balloon tracking and data acquisition and so forth. The realtime flight data could be received at National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR) in Tokyo by using the computer network via INMARSAT. At NIPR the collaboration members could monitor the entire process of the experiment at Syowa Station in detail and send some instructions and advice. This balloon experiment showed an extended possibility of a large scale scientific ballooning at Syowa Station. This paper deals with those newly developed balloon engineering technologies.
