Study on the Application of Next-Generation Satellite Data

This study aims to derive and apply meteorological parameters from next generation satellite data with special attention to improve the accuracy for both operational weather forecasting and atmospheric research in general. The major goals for this study are;

  • Development of retrieval algorithms to derive the meteorological parameters
  • Characterization of new channel observation data from new instruments
  • Special emphasis on the application of microwave and hyper-spectral instrument dataresearch and development of key strategical technologies related to meteorology
  • Examples of parameter using geostationary satellite data
    • Examples of parameter using geostationary
      satellite data
Operation of the X-band Doppler Radar and Data Analysis

GESRL operates a mobile X-band Doppler radar at Muan Observatory, located southwest coast of the peninsula. Although it is a research radar, it has been operated to support severe weather monitoring in real-time. The major research goals of this project are;

  • Develop the Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE) algorithm
  • Implement the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF)
  • Improve the horizontal wind retrieval from Doppler radars analysis
Marine Meteorological Observation and Analysis

Disturbing factors on our ocean environment require better observational system for the marine meteorology. With all the efforts, METRI eventually aim to intensify monitoring ability and prevent marine meteorological disasters. To meet this requirement, METRI tries to achieve the following goals;

  • Increase the reliability of wave data
  • Perform the operational test of new observational technologies
