Meteorology: Precise Forecasts, Disaster Prevention

  In Taiwan area, there are 27 synoptic weather stations, more than 400 automatic meteorology and rain gauge stations and four weather radar stations set up to monitor and analyze satellite data in all weather conditions.

  Collectively, these provide detailed weather forecasts and timely warnings of typhoons and other severe weather advisories.

  A real-time thunderstorm early warning system has been added to provide timely warnings to the public. Taiwan also features 170 seismic stations to detect earthquakes. In about 30 seconds, these seismic stations can complete a preliminary judgment about a temblor's scope and epicenter. In three to five minutes, quick reports can be offered to the outside world. Along Taiwan's coasts are 24 tide stations, which issue regular data about waves, tides and surface temperature in the seas surrounding Taiwan.

  Customized weather data and expanded applications providing timely alerts of strong earthquakes will be key points when developing meteorological services in the future. Furthermore, there will be continued efforts to strengthen weather emergency response, to improve meteorological and seismic equipment and techniques, to raise weather-monitoring capacity, and to assist in disaster prevention and mitigation and thus promote economic development.
