KMA Services


  • Background
  • Tsunami Monitoring System
  • Tsunami Forecast
  • International Cooperation

  Although earthquake prediction still remains an area not fully understood by modern science, tsunami forecasting is possible to some extent, through earthquake data analysis and international cooperation. Extension of seismological network and sustaining investment in research and development will contribute to the advancement of earthquake disaster prevention capability.

  Korea is surrounded by three seas. In particular, the East Sea area has a high possibility of tsunami occurrence. For example, in 1983 and 1993, a tsunami caused loss of life and property damage in the East Coast area. Now KMA has established and been operating its own tsunami warning system.
