Temperature monitoring along the depth in construction site of the Jangbogo Antarctic research station (74° 37′S, 164° 12′E) was carried out. The thermal behavior of the frozen ground was investigated. The temperatures were measured during site investigation from February 07, 2011 to February 12, 2011. The temperature profile was analyzed in the frozen ground. The results show that the increase along with the depth. This study demonstrates that the temperature profile obtained at this site could be effective reference for the construction of the research station in the Antarctic.
