 Abstract
This study aims analyze the geological values in relation to the volcanic area and to investigate a possibility of the geosites and the geoheritages in Byeonsanbando area. The results indicate that the seven geosites are relevant as a potential national geopark, including Gunghang, Solseom Island, and Mohang located in Oebyeonsan and Jikso Falls, Gulbawi, Seongye Falls, and Ulgumbawi located in Naebyeonsan. Solseom Island and Mohang should be preserved and used as a place of the geological study because of their high geological heritage values. Besides, Jeokbyeokgang and Chaeseokgang are famous for excellent natural landscapes as they have been proven with academic values. Like this, these area are considered to have sufficient value as a national geopark of Korea, because their geoheritages are variously distributed in Byeonsanbando area.
