Introduction

Taiwan Ocean Radar Observing System (TOROS) of TORI has completed establishing 17 stations under CODAR system progressively since 2009 to January 2015 including twelve 5 MHz stations and five 13/24 MHz stations. To eliminate the blind area in offshore observation of the island, the FALA standard station has been added in September 2017 to gain currents data from Pingtung coastal area to Hsiao Liouciou Island. Setting up the FALA station has provided fine data support for marine science research and salvage .

In the southwestern area. Since the radar system may have difference in observing distant and resolution by using different frequency and bandwidth. TOROS establisher stations in accordance with different measurement purposes and is currently producing grid product under three different ranges and resolutions by time, including near real-time informations such as total area (10km), total area (4km) and South Bay area (1km).
