Spatio-temporal Variation of Mesozooplankton in Asan Bay

Previous studies on zooplankton in Asan Bay were mostly based on samples collected seasonally with three months intervals. Present study was aimed to know the temporal variation of meso-zooplankton distribution using the data collected monthly. Relationships between zooplankton abundances and environmental factors such as seawater temperatures, salinities and chlorophyll-a contents were also studied. Seawater temperature showed typical pattern of seasonal variation found in temperate waters. The fluctuations of environmental factors ranged relatively wider In the inner part of the bay than those in outer part of the bay. Salinity was very low right after the summer rainy period due to the sporadic outflow of freshwater from the adjacent artificial lakes. Sudden changes in salinity seemed to have significant impact on zooplankton assemblages. Chlorophyll-a contents were increased in general when compared with previous reports probably due to the recent human exploitations in the coastal zone, which might enhance the nutrients level . The timing and duration of spring bloom showed geographical differences. In the inner part of the bay it began earlier (February) and last longer (three months) while in the outer part of the bay it began late (April) and last just one month. Zooplankton abundance, especially most abundant taxon Acartia hongi, showed weak but significant positive correlation with chlorophyll-a contents. The difference in temporal variation found with two different sampling intervals indicated the necessity of shorter time interval samplings.
Change of Oceanographic Environment in the Nakdong Estuary

The Nakdong Estuary is complex water system, where sea water and fresh water meet each other. It has undergone the significant change of its environmental conditions since the construction of the Nakdong River Barrier in 1987. Prior to its construction, mixing and circulation processes in the Nakdong Estuary was dominated by tidal current. However, after the dam construction, those processes were greatly altered by the artificial control of the fresh river water discharge. In this paper, the influence of opening and closing the floodgate of Nakdong River on the outflow behavior of estuarine water from the Nakdong Estuary is analyzed in detail.

This study investigated the temperature-salinity spatio-temporal variability around the Ulleung-do Island (UI) by using CTD profiles obtained by the ARGO floats far the period of Oct.,2003 to Aug.,2005. The waterbody in the upper 700 m around the UI could be classified into five water masses, which is consistent to traditional water characteristics in the East Sea. In the upper surface layer, the temperature and salinity in fall season became even lower than those properties in the summer time. The East Sea Intermediate Water (ESIW) characterized by the salinity minimum layer shows the range of potential temperature between 1 to
and salinity lower than 34.06 psu. The ESIW lies approximately at 265 m depth with average thickness of 175 m. This thickness of the ESIW continues to be relatively uniform regardless of spatio-temporal space. However, the depth of the ESIW shows vertical variation influenced by the Ulleung warm eddy (UWE). Since the UWE lies in the upper layer, the Upper Portion of the Japan Sea Proper. Water (UPJSPW) is also affected to show the vertical variation. The influence extorted by the UWE reached down to 700 m depth in terms of temperature. The CTD profiles obtained with the high sampling rate by ARCO floats over two-year period provided with very useful and detailed informations in investigating the spatio-temporal variability In the study area.
A Study on Making of Chart Datum Database

The Sea, volume 11, issue 1, 2006, Pages 31~36
A study on estimation of the datum level is carried out by combining observed and simulated harmonic constants of 4 major tides (
tide). In the coastal zone, the datum level can be estimated by using observed tide harmonic constants at tide station. The observed tide harmonic constants, however, cannot be used to calculate the datum level of the sea because of the lack of tide station. In order to estimate the datum level of the sea, it is necessary to adopt the simulated harmonic constants instead of the observed ones. In this study, the datum level is calculated by using the simulated harmonic constants which is modified by tuning coefficient based on relationship between observed and simulated harmonic constants at tide station. Tuning coefficient of sea is interpolated on TIN (Triangulated Irregular Network) which has node points at tide stations.
