The purpose of this study is to estimate the vibration reduction effect of the borehole which is controlled the vibration propagation in the ground. For this study, we measured the vibration velocity before and after the borehole installation. The results are as follows: The peak particle velocity(PPV) and peak vector sum(PVS) was reduced by the borehole. And also, the deviation of vibration velocity before and after the borehole installation showed large values in longitudinal and vertical component depending on the receive distance, and increased depending on the size of vibration energy. Finally, the vibration isolation efficiency was 25~35 percentage at 1.5m receive distance, and was 4~14 percentage at 3.0m receive distance. It was found that the vibration isolation efficiency was good in small vibration energy, but was not good at long receive distance.

Depending on the change of lifestyle and the improvement of people's living standards and rapid industrialization, urbanization of recent, demand for water is increasing rapidly. So emissions of domestic wastewater and various industrial waste water has increased, and water quality is worsening day by day. Therefore, in order to provide a measure against the occurrence of water pollution accident, this study was tried to simulate water pollution accident. This study simulated 2008 Gimcheon phenol accident using 1,2-D model, and analyze scenario for prevent of water pollution accident. Consequently the developed 1-D model presents high reappearance when compared with 2-D model, and has been able to obtain results in a short simulation run time. This study will contribute to the water pollution incident response prediction system and water quality analysis in the future.

The objective of this study is to evaluate and analyze Osu stream watershed water environment system. The data were collected from January 2009 to December 2011 including water temperature, pH, DO, EC, BOD, COD, TOC, SS, T-N, T-P and discharge. The data were used for principle component analysis and factor analysis. The results are as followes. The primary factors obtained from both the principal component analysis and the factor analysis were BOD, COD, TOC, SS and T-P. Once principal component analysis and factor analysis have been performed with the collected data and then the results will be applied to both simple regression model and multiple regression model. The regression model was developed into case 1 using concentrations of water quality parameters and case 2 using delivery loads. The value of the coefficient of determination on case 1 fell between 0.629 and 0.866; this was lower than case 2 value which fell between 0.946 and 0.998. Therefore, case 2 model would be a reliable choice.The coefficient of determination between the estimated figure using data which was developed to the regression model in 2012 and the actual measurement value was over 0.6, overall. It can be safely deduced that the correlation value between the two findings was high. The same model can be applied to get TOC concentrations in future.
Determining the priority order of wetland functions
Lee, Seungjun ; Choi, Hyun-Ah ; Lee, Woo-Kyun ; Lee, Jong Yeol ; Jeon, Seong Woo ; Kim, Joonsoon ;
Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 23, issue 3, 2014, Pages 197~207
DOI : 10.14249/eia.2014.23.3.197
In this study, the functional priority of wetlands was determined through analysis of previous research. To determine relative importance, three processes were performed. First, quantitative values from the case studies were normalized. Second, non-quantitative values were prioritized based on standard criteria. Third, equal weight was applied as long as there was no special consideration regarding a particular value's disproportionate priority in the research. Finally, results were grouped into large, medium, and small classes.In this study, the functions of the medium class were found to be the most significant, in the following order of priority: water supply and ground water recharge; culture and recreation; biodiversity; product; water quality control; flood control; erosion control; moderation of climate change; and provision of biochemical matter. To verify these results, we compared our findings with those of an assessment that used the Rapid Assessment Method (RAM) on the same type of study area. Whereas this comparison indicated some correlations by the culture, water storage, and genetic sustainability functions, it suggested a lack of such relationship by the water purification and flood prevention functions.
Landscape Ecology and Management Measure of Urban Mountain Forest in Seoul
Kong, Woo-Seok ; Kim, Kunok ; Lee, Sle-Gee ; Park, Hee-Na ;
Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 23, issue 3, 2014, Pages 208~219
DOI : 10.14249/eia.2014.23.3.208
This work aims to establish the landscape ecological countermeasures to improve the sustainability of urban mountain forest and to enrich the biodiversity in twenty mountains of the Seoul Metropolitan City. Landscape ecological analysis was conducted based upon various criteria, such as area and elevation of mountains, flora, naturalized plants, vegetation, forest types, mountain trails, and public facilities. Various measures were suggested for the better maintenances of floristic diversity, introduced plants, vegetation and forest types of urban mountain forests. Sustainable recommendations for land use adminstration were developed for the preparations of a climate change-adapted urban mountain forests, as well as rational managements of ecosystem, walking trails, and public facilities within mountain forest. Rich and diverse natural vegetation as well as high floristic diversity were reported at mountains with higher elevations, larger area size, and rich landscape diversity. Mountains with low elevation, small size with easy public access, however, might require an urgent action to decrease the burdens by anthropogenic disturbances and urban development.
The Analysis of High Chlorophyll-a Concentration Patch in the North Marine Areas of East China Sea
Jeong, Jong-Chul ;
Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 23, issue 3, 2014, Pages 220~226
DOI : 10.14249/eia.2014.23.3.220
This study investigated temporal-spatial and variations in Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI) products of parameters total suspended solids (TSS) and chlorophyll-a in the North Marine Areas of East China Sea.GOCI data were collected daily from February 2012 to December 2012. The higher chlorophyll-a values were observed during the investigation period. The relatively large increase in TSS and chlorophyll-a at the sampling stations coupled with typhoon events during the summer rainy period. The abnormal chlorophyll-a concentration was mainly driven by meteorological factors such as typhoon and rainfall in the coastal areas of Jeju and the North Marine Areas of East China Sea. The abnormal high chlorophyll-a concentration at the majority of the coastal stations indicate eutrophication of coastal waters, especially Red tide. The events such as eutrophication and abnormal high chlorophyll-a concentration may potentially influence outbreak of Red Tide, detected with GOCI parameters.
A Study on the Environmental Impact Assessment for the Unconventional Gas Development
Cho, Hanna ; Park, Joo-Yang ;
Journal of Environmental Impact Assessment, volume 23, issue 3, 2014, Pages 227~235

Interest has been growing worldwide in unconventional natural gas that has become an increasingly important source of energy in the world. Unconventional gas development, including shale gas, generally involves a larger environmental impact, compared to conventional gas development, due to its intensity and scale of the operation. There are a growing number of studies on identifying and minimizing the environmental impacts of unconventional gas development. This study aims to examines the current environmental policies and regulatory systems related to the unconventional gas development. The study shows that few environmental regulation exists concerning unconventional gas development, even in the USA where unconventional gas development is most actively pursued. Regulations, however, are being developed based on studies currently underway on health and environmental risks of unconventional gas development and on guidelines designed to reduce the risks. In a world where environmental regulations are ever strengthening, review the environmental regulatory systems and guidelines about unconventional gas need to be established for Korean firms to understand environmental impacts of unconventional gas development they invest or take part in, enabling them to manage and operate gas activities in a way that minimizes environmental damages.
