SEOUL, Jan. 15 (Korea Bizwire) — The Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) held the official launch of its new ‘Earthquake Monitor Video Service’ on Wednesday.
This service enables users to view the state weather agency’s real-time earthquake monitors and analysis through YouTube videos.
Thus far, the KMA’s earthquake information was limited to only earthquake alerts that are based on the completed final analysis.
The new service, however, provides real-time earthquake monitoring information, including vibrations that have yet to be confirmed as earthquakes.
The service can be replayed 24 hours a day in real-time through the KMA’s YouTube channel, which will also offer a variety of earthquake-related PR videos.
Included within the YouTube channel are real time observatory data collected by the KMA’s 350 seismological stations throughout the country, the type of seismic wave by region, the result of real-time earthquake analysis, various earthquake-related statistics and information on earthquake evacuation.
Once an earthquake is detected, the KMA will also provide videos on the location of the earthquake, the maximum seismic strength, the type of seismic wave and earthquake alert.
