Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 18, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~9
Even though the center of Cheongju city needs redevelopment because of a doughnut phenomenon, it has to be permitted within the environmental carrying capacity like a target water quality proposed on the Total maximum daily loads(TMDL) of Musim and Miho river watersheds. The aim of in this study is to identify the limit of redeveloping Cheongju downtown after analyzing its environmental carrying capacity using QUAL2E model. As a result of modeling various scenarios, the water quality of Musin river was shown that
is 2.3mg/L which is the target water quality in the double of existing development plan of the Cheongju downtown. The water quality of Miho river was
3.97mg/L which is less than the target water quality of Miho B watershed in the same condition. Therefore, this means that the limit of redevelopment within the environmental carrying capacity of cheongju downtown was estimated to be the double of existing development plan.

We conducted human risk assessment due to inhalation exposure to heavy metals emitted from incinerator. The process of health impact assessment(HIA) on incinerator is as follows: The first step is to presume and calculate the amount of heavy metals emitted using emission factor. The second step is to conduct an exposure assessment using the K-SCREEN model which is used for predicting the concentration in a conservative method. The last step is to carry out a risk assessment on carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic substances. This study revealed that rank of carcinogenic human risk was
> As > Ni > Cd, and values of human risk assessment on carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic substances is lower than the US criteria for risk assessment except
. It is expected that the technique of HIA, especially human risk assessment on heavy metals, would be applied to the incinerator construction project. In addition, more systematic studies are needed to overcome some weak points and limits found in this study.
A Study on the Plan for Advanced Noise-Policy in the 21st Century

The study show that things about the noise control are indicated at The Noise & Vibration Control Act and the other Act. Also, the details program and total government ministries' program for the noise control are indicated what are the advance noise control plan. The study consist of the four part which are "Draw up the environmental noise infrastructure plan; the install shall be done the noisemap & the automatic noise measurement devices", "Resetting of environmental noise standard at the application area and Introduce of indoor noise; the guide for region classification of the noise standard & indoor noise", "Setting of aircraft noise standard and Program of measurement point operation; the noise-assessment-standard shall change from WECPN to new index(
) & the operation and control of aircraft noise measurement changes from local environmental office to central control center" and "The method of noise regulation at construction site and the plan on making of standard for vibration regulation; It shall be made that the guideline of construction noise should include a target-construction, noise standard etc & the ministries shall unify control about construction vibration of the blasting vibration". The advance noise-policy will improve efficiency to deal with civil appeal & damage on residents about noise.
The Distribution Analysis of PM10 in Seoul Using Spatial Interpolation Methods

Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 18, issue 1, 2009, Pages 31~39
A lot of data which are used in environment analysis of air pollution have characteristics that are distributed continuously in space. In this point, the collected data value such as precipitation, temperature, altitude, pollution density, PM10 have spatial aspect. When geostatistical data analysis are needed, acquisition of the value in every point is the best way, however, it is impossible because of the costs and time. Therefore, it is necessary to estimate the unknown values at unsampled locations based on observations. In this study, spatial interpolation method such as local trend surface model, IDW(inverse distance weighted), RBF(radial basis function), Kriging were applied to PM10 annual average concentration of Seoul in 2005 and the accuracy was evaluated. For evaluation of interpolation accuracy, range of estimated value, RMSE, average error were analyzed with observation data. The Kriging and RBF methods had the higher accuracy than others.

Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 18, issue 1, 2009, Pages 41~50
Using the "Statistical Yearbooks of Korean forestry", we assessed the uptake of nitrogen and base cations by Korean forest. Combined amount of base cations uptake by forest tress during its growth and that of at the time of harvest reached to 1,034 eq/ha/yr. The base cations uptake in the range of 900 ~ 1,100 eq/ha/yr occupied approximately 48.6% out of total. Coniferous forest in the range of 170 ~ 200 eq/ha/yr was 59.9%, deciduous forest in the range of 430 ~ 530 eq/ha/yr was 42.6%, and mixed forest in the range of 270 ~ 370 eq/ha/yr was 35.7% out of total. Deciduous forest recorded higher uptake rate of nitrogen and base cation than coniferous forest in Korea. Combined amounts of nitrogen uptake by forest tress during growth and that at the time of forest, was 1,108 eq/ha/yr and nitrogen uptake was in the range of 1,000 ~ 1,200 eq/ha/yr, Within Korea, forest with nitrogen uptake in the range of 1,000 ~ 1,200 eq/ha/yr account for 45.7% of the entire country. Locations in the range of 320 ~ 390 eq/ha/yr occupied 43.9% of all coniferous forest while deciduous forest in the range of 470 ~ 570 eq/ha/yr was 40.4% of total deciduous forest. As for mixed forest in the range of 270 ~ 370 eq/ha/yr, it occupied 35.9% of all mixed forest of Korea.
Cooperative Model within Local Community for the Conservation of the Endangered Plant Species, Corylopsis coreana

Corylopsis coreana Uyeki is endemic species in the Korean peninsula and is designated a Category Endangered Plant Species by the Wildlife Protection Act of South Korea. We developed the plan and cooperative model within the local community for the species conservation. In order to carry out this plan we first investigated the ecological characteristics of the species. The species shows patterns of discontinuous distribution and is coupled with the unusual feature of only growing on northern exposed slopes. Although Corylopsis coreana is cut the stem every year, many new sprouts are still grown from the root. Natural germination of the seed occurs only on north-facing slopes, but not on south-facing slopes at spring. That is, the species is highly influenced by soil moisture until the seedling stage has been reached. This factor limits the distribution of the species. When saplings are planted on south-facing slopes, they grow well. The information we gathered greatly helped with efforts to draw up conservation plans. In addition, when the information was shared with the local community, builders and residents showed great interest and displayed a will to help with conservation efforts. Therefore, a cooperative model within the local community was drawn up for the conservation of the species. Accordingly this model could be applied at mitigation measure at environment impact assessment.
