Another excerpt from the KORDI (Korea Ocean Research and
Development Institute) 1990 Annual Report.  This one on Chemical
Oceanography.  As with the other branches of KORDI, chemical
oceanography also includes much applied work, with a special new
Marine Natural Products Laboratory.  They are involved in Marine
Pollution studies including oil spills and Mussel Watch.  They
are doing interesting studies on the trace metals in animals from
the deep sea vents, both hot and cold seeps.
