In this study, a two-dimensional storm surges/tide prediction model called the Storm surges/Tide Operational Model (STORM) was applied as the operational forecast model of the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA). The operational model results were verified for two years (2006-2007) using observed results from tidal stations. Comparisons of modeled and observed storm surges show that larger differences at the western coast of Korea than at the southern and eastern coasts. The averaged root mean square error between the modeled and observed storm surges height are 0.16 m and 0.10 m in 2006 and 2007, respectively.
