ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to identify the contents of user-customized weather and climate information services that the residents in Jeju, Korea need with priority for the improvements of local economic activities. Analyses of survey data from local residents demonstrate that among many services, the typhoon monitoring system at local levels is most needed by residents in Jeju for better performance of major economic activities including agriculture, fisheries and tourism. In addition, weather and climate information service systems that support aviation/navigation, urban flooding, mountain hazardous conditions, marin sports, insurance, IT-based tourism, droughts, crop production and wildland fires are recognized as important systems with higher priorities for local residents. These information obtained from local residents may help to establish the user-customized weather and climate information systems improving their economic activities compared to the conventional producer-centered ones displaying the simple observed weather and climate records.
