A Comparative Analysis of Major Oil Spill Compensation Systems in France, Spain, and Korea - In the Case of M/T Erika, Prestige, and Hebei Spirit -
Cho, Dong-Oh ; Mok, Jin-Yong ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Environment & Safety, volume 14, issue 3, 2008, Pages 177~181
In this study, the authors analyzed the limit of IOPC Fund system, such as limit of compensation, amount of FC, long period of assessment by IOPC Fund, issue of non verification by poor claimant or small business, issue of poor claimant subsistence in early stage of accidents, and comparatively analyzed how the three countries resolved these limits by enacting special laws and government policy. Until recently most governments have carried out prevention policy for maritime safety, oil spill response, investigation of maritime accidents, and restoration of marine environment when oil spill accidents happened. However, governments have not actively participated in the oil spill compensation process because it is a matter of private sectors between the polluter and claimant. The governments have only limited their role in ratifying Civil Liability Convention and Fund Convention and enacted relevant domestic laws. However, the governments of France, Spain, and Korea have actively participated in the compensation process of oil pollution incidents of M/T Erika, M/T Prestige, and M/T Hebei Spirit. This is because they had experiences of unsuccessful compensation in M/T Amoco Cadiz, M/T Agean Sea, and M/T Sea Prince.

Lee, Kyoung-Seon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Environment & Safety, volume 14, issue 3, 2008, Pages 183~187
Elevated concentrations of suspended solids in the marine enrironment caused by coastal developments have threatened to the marine ecosystem. Effects of suspended solids on the mortality and the modifications of glycogen levels of abalone, Haliotis discus hannai were studied. Abalone were exposed to suspended solids with concentrations of 0 (control), 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 mg/ L for 96h. These suspended solids had no effect on the mortality of abalone. Significant decreases in the glycogen content of soft tissues were observed over 1,500 mg/ L concentration of suspended solids. These results suggested that abalone could tolerate a high level of suspended solids. However, it is necessary to observe further the long term effects of suspended solids on the physiological responses of abalone.

Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Environment & Safety, volume 14, issue 3, 2008, Pages 189~195
This study analyzed the characteristics of sea water transport between Busan New-port and the Nakdong River estuary. A current meter was placed on a pier bridge and the current velocity was analyzed to determine the flow direction. Water temperature, salinity, turbidity, and tide were also measured to determine the characteristics of sea water and to describe the tidal current between the two regions. The results indicated that the dominant outflow direction of the ebb tidal current was from the Nakdong River estuary to Busan New-port. Conversely, during a flood tide, the dominant direction was from Busan New-port to the Nakdong River estuary. The maximum current speed during the first and second field measurements was about 13.18 and 30.80 cm/ sec, respectively. During the first field measurement, the total volume of sea water transport was
and the residual volume transport was
. By contrast, during the second field measurement, the respective values were

Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Environment & Safety, volume 14, issue 3, 2008, Pages 197~203
This study analyzed the characteristics of sea water transport between Busan New-port and the Nakdong River estuary. Numerical modeling was used to evaluate the characteristics of the tidal current. Numerical simulations of three different topographies were conducted. The results are summarized as follows: 1) The volume of sea water transport was reduced by
when water depth was decreased at Busan New-port (10 m); 2) The volume of sea water transport was increased by
when a channel (depth 5 m) was constructed in the direction of the Nakdong River estuary.

Journal of the Korean Society of Marine Environment & Safety, volume 14, issue 3, 2008, Pages 205~210
In recent years, the crisis of energy is growing seriously and also the contamination of ecology has been reverberated as international problem. The social concern about energy crisis has been growing for the last several years and also the interest in new and renewable energy has been increased. The probability of wind power resource over Saemangeum is reviewed with the data of Gunsan weather station. Through this study, it is cleared that the Saemangeum area has fluent wind power source to design the wind farm in Korea. According to calculation results, it is possible to predict the wind velocity density around the Saemangeum area using the shape factor as a parameter.

Natural environment, topographical conditions and marine traffic flows were investigated and questionnaire surveys were performed for the purpose of understanding the cause of marine accidents. The frequent cases of ships' dragging have happened at the anchorages of E-1, E-2 and E-3. The anchorage area is insufficient for the accommodation of a number of ships, the dolphins at the nearby piers are located near a narrow fairway. SBMs' are positioned too close to the fairway. It shows that many crossing marine traffic flows occur in all areas of the port. Marine casualties are concentrated mainly at No. 1 fairway, M1-M7 waters close to the dolphins and Gwanjeolgot, "E" anchorage and the waters close to the fairway "come and go" areas. The marine traffic flow is mainly caused by the ships' movement at the inter-port and most of the ships are the dangerous cargo carriers. And small ships like the tug-barge are moving disorderly in the ports. Furthermore, the fairway‘s layout is crossing each other. Questionnaire surveys of the users and experts shows that the LANBY that can distinguish the fairway of "come and go" ports is required.

Since July 2006, marine traffic safety management system have been enforced to support the vessels transiting across the coastal area and the vessels coming in and out of ports in southwestern coastal area where heavy traffic density and marine casualties occurred frequently. The marine traffic volume for the marine traffic environmental assessment was measured by the information from RADAR and AIS system in the area. The distributions of marine casualties were analyzed in the main routes and traffic separation schemes during the last five years and the navigational dangerous elements were investigated with the influence of natural environment, the distribution of fisheries and survey questionnaire. Marine accidents of merchant ships have a tendency to decrease gradually but in case of fishing boats, the rate of marine accidents have a contrary results in this area during the last five years. The dangerous elements on navigation appeared to be the dense force from June to August, fisheries activities and the vessels which not follow the compulsory watch on VHF-band radio communication equipments.

Recently, the transport quantity of goods between South and North Korea is rising rapidly by increasing of economical exchange between South and North Korea and growth of Gaeseoung industrial complex. In addition to a land transportation route, it is necessary to secure various logistics and transportation route for freight transportation between Incheon and Gaesung. In this paper, we investigated a construction of barge transportaion system between Incheon and Gaesung. The barge transportation system which has many merits such as a little initial investment and convenience of harbor loading/ unloading has been also used to transport freight widely in the EU and USA. Firstly, we investigated barge transport route, marine freight and barge fleet which consists of barge and pusher between Incheon and Gaesung. And next, we designed hull form and general arrangement of a barge and pusher based on shipping service condition, barge fleet, etc. Finally, a construction plans of barge transport system such as a operation of shipping service, berthing facilities, logistics center, intermodal transport are investigated.

In case of EU and USA, a short sea shipping and coastal shipping which are safer and environmentally better than road transportation are used widely. But a share of freight transport by a coastal transportation is extremely poor in South Korea. In this paper, we propose a Mokpo-Jeju intermodal transportation based on logistics analysis results. Firstly, we investigate a freight and passenger of a Mokpo-Jeju shipping route. And secondly, the intermodal transportations such as sea-train, sea-road, RORO ship system are investigated. Finally, we propose a coastal transportation system utilizing RORO ship system for Mokpo-Jeju shipping route and identify a technical feasibility of a coastal transportation system.
