  • Owing to the excavation of Goseong Munam-ri site, there has much advance in study of chronology of the early Neolithic Age flat-bottom potteries distributed in the mid-eastern part of Korean Peninsular. Relics such as stone tools, clay products, ornaments as well as potteries from Goseong Munam-ri site reflect cultural relation with Boisman culture in Duman river basin area and with the southern part of Korean Peninsular. Common features can be found in some potteries, arrowheads, scrapers, and sinkers from Boisman culture and Goseong Munam-ri site. There are much more common features in pottery and earring-making techniques observed in Goseong Munam-ri site and the southern part of the peninsular. Thus it may be possible to analogize migration or spread of people from the mid-eastern part to the southern part of Korean Peninsular.

  • Analysis has been made on the wind wave characteristics in terms of significant wave height ($H_s$) near the Korean marginal seas in the 2006 - 2007 year using the third generation wave model, WAVEWATCH - III model. In order to evaluate its performance, its results were compared with the observed data using KMA ocean buoy. The two year average RMSE between modeled and observed Hs shows reasonably small value of about 0.37 m. The accuracy of predicted values in the year 2007 is increased mainly due to finer model grid size and better accurate wind field. The model used in this study predicts very well the characteristics ($H_s$) of wind waves near the Korean Peninsular. Simulated monthly wind waves show the evident seasonal variations due to Typhoons in summer season. When Typhoons approach to Korean Peninsular, the accuracy of wind waves predictions is lower than that of annual mean value.

  • This study introduces a method to generate artificial earthquakes in Korean Peninsular using historical earthquake catalogues and point source model. For this purpose, three earthquake catalogues compiled by different researchers are compared to each other. And epicenters and magnitudes of future earthquakes are generated based on those catalogues. In generating ground motion accelertation, point source model proposed by Boore and Atkinson was adopted. Parameters of the model for South-Eastern part of Korean Peninsular was proposed by Noh and kn. From the epicenters, magnitudes, and ground motion models, possible earthquakes for 50,000 years are generated. Using these generated earthquakes ground accelrations and uniform hazard response spectra (UHRS) having 2%, 5%, and 10% exceedance probability in 50 years are proposed.

  • The construction of the Great Korea Canal(GKC) In the Korean peninsular requires consideration from a aspect of vision of the national land development. GKC will bring enormous benefits to the Korean economy. First, effect of the equitable regional development. Second, reduction In freight transport costs and contribution of innovation in physical distribution. Finally, creation of large numbers of new jobs and development of Tourism & Leisure Industry and its related industry. Lets view the construction and finance supply.

  • We develop a model to predict typhoons in Korea. We collect data for typhoons and classify those depending on the severity level. Following a Bayesian approach, we develop a model that explains the relationship between different levels of typhoons. Through the analysis of the model, we can predict the rate of typhoons, the probability of approaching Korean peninsular, and the probability of striking Korean peninsular. We show that the uncertainty for the occurrence of various types of typhoons reduces dramatically by adaptively updating model parameters as we acquire data.

  • Efficiency and limitations of HAZUS-MH, a GIS based systematic and informative system developed by FEMA and NIBS for natural hazard loss estimations, are discussed by means of a pilot study in the Korean Peninsular. Gyeongsang-do has been selected for the test after careful reviews of previous studies including historical and modern seismicity in the peninsular. A ShakeMap for the selected scenario earthquake with magnitude 6.7 in Gyeongju area is prepared. Then, any losses due to the scenario event have been estimated using HAZUS. Results of the pilot test show that the study area may experience significant physical, economic and social damages. Detailed study in the future will provide efficient and crucial information to the decision makers and emergency agents to mitigate any disaster posed by natural hazards.
