1 The 8 th GAME International Science Panel Meeting (Thailand, 10-11 November, 2003) Dr. C. H. Cho Meteorological Research Institute, KMA Email: Speaker: B. J. Sohn, SEES, Seoul National University, Korea Present Status of KEOP Activities in Korea

2 What is KEOP ?

3 KEOP Objectives and Contents  Produce intensive observation data to clarify the 3- dimensional structure of heavy rainfall system in summer associated with typhoon or Changma (Rainy Season in Korea)  Enhance our understanding of heavy rainfall system in summer and improve its model prediction from the analysis and application studies of intensive observation data  Intensive field-based observation of severe weather in summer associated with typhoon and Changma  Long-term monitoring of surface fluxes for improvement of physical processes between land surface and atmosphere  Analysis and application of intensive observation data for elucidating the formation and development mechanism of heavy rainfall system  Establishment of observation network for real-time monitoring system of severe weather in the southwestern part of the Korean peninsula  Performance of fundamental research for designing optical observation network  Operation of KEOP data center Objectives Contents
