In the aftermath of the disastrous Indonesian Tsunami in 2004 the South-Korean Government decided to guard its West- and East-Coast by cable based Tsunami detection stations. A prototype system was commissioned in November 2006 20km South of Ulleong-Do island in the East Sea. Since then, the system continuously delivers data into the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) sensor network.
