Republic of Korea (South Korea) is nearly surrounded by water with the Yellow Sea, the East

(Japan) Sea and the East China Sea and Korea Strait. These bodies of water are shared with

 North Korea, China, Japan and Russia with the economies of each heavily reliant on them for

shipping, aquaculture, fisheries, marine resources, and with the pollution problems and military

 activities, among others. This geopolitical environment requires critical information about

 currents and circulation in our Nation’s waters.
