ABSTRACT

The production and distribution for meteorological disaster information is currently being monopolized by the Korea Meteorological Administration(KMA). And because of this, the current state of accessing meterological information is in a general state where it is accessed through data passed on to the media from the KMA, restricting information produced by limited numbers of private meteorological information companies to a very small portion. Entering the 21st century, various severe weather phenomena's such as typhoons, hurricanes, extreme droughts, snow blizzards, ect. are occurring globally due to the global warming caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Korea, in the recent 10 years, also has experienced trillions in economic losses due to meterological related natural disasters. If greenhouse gas concentrations increase at the current rate, in the future, more extreme and catastrophic weather phenomena's will be occurring more often. And for efficient preparations to take place at government and various social levels, the current supplier oriented system of accessing information must be restructured to a demand oriented system by securing futuristic weather information infrastructures.
