Welcome to the website of the Korea Institute of Hydrological Survey
Nowadays, we are facing frequent severe weather events such as floods or droughts. To cope with those disasters efficiently, an accurate and systematic hydrological survey should be carried out consistently, leading to accumulating long-term data. The high-quality data of hydrological measurement secure the effectiveness of the water management policy.
As a public institute specialized in the hydrological survey, the Korea Institute of Hydrological Survey(KIHS) focuses on processing and analyzing the national data on water resources like streamflow, sediment, evapotranspiration and soil moisture. Moreover, KIHS strives to develop water-related technologies. Through our tasks, we have endeavored to improve public water welfare by mitigating the floods damage and stabilized supply of the clear water.
Besides, we have continuously extended the number of locations and sites in streamflow measurement as well as kept performing the survey assisting the preservation of water quality and the aquatic ecosystem in fulfilling the public’s expectation in regard to Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).
KIHS will conduct the hydrological survey with equity and probity for all citizens to enjoy safe and clear water.
