Statistical Analyses on the Relationships between Red Tide Formation and Meteorological Factors in the Korean Coasts, and Satellite Monitoring for Red Tide

한국 연안에서의 적조형성과 기상인자간의 상관성에 대한 통계학적 해석 및 위성에 의한 적조 모니터링

  • Published : 2005.05.01


The aim of our study understands the influence of meteorological factors relating to the formation of the red tide, and monitors the red tide by satellite remote sensing. The meteorological factors have directly influenced on red tide formation. Thus, it was possible to predict and apply to red tide formation from statistical analyses on the realtionships between red tide formation and meteorological factors, and also to realize the near real time monitoring for red tide by satellite remote sensing.
