Welcome to the Korea Ocean Radar Forum Homepage

In recent year, national demands for near real time surface currnt data requires development of

ocean radar network to measure densely distributed surface currents. The Korea Ocean Radar

Forum (KORF) was formed in November 2011 to share experiences  on  ocean radar network planing,

operation, maintenance and data management, exchange ideas about applications and

researches, and discuss issues that are common to all operators and end-users in Korea.
