Seasonal Variations of Marine Water Quality and Eutorphication Index in Mokpo Harbour
Kim Kwang Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Marine Environment & Energy, volume 4, issue 3, 2001, Pages 3~15
The in situ observations and the seawater analyses were conducted for 3 years from August 1996 to August 1999 in order to elucidate and evaluate seasonal variations of marine water quality and trophic state in Mokpo harbour of Korea. Compared the seasonal seawater qualities of Mokpo harbour with the OECD standards of trophic classification in parameters such as Secchi depth, dissolved inorganic nitrogen, phosphate phosphorus and chlorophyll-a, the trophic level of seawater in Mokpo harbour was evaluated to be in mesotrophic or eutrophic state through all 4 seasons and to be in eutrophic state, particularly In summer. The estimation of pollution index by eutrophication showed the seawater quality of Mokpo harbour to deteriorate and fall under the regular grades through all 4 seasons, although the seawater quality of Mokpo harbour was evaluated to be equivalent to the second or third class of the Korean seawater quality standards in view of COD values. The results of eutrophication index estimation showed the high potentiality of red tide occurrence In Mokpo harbour, particularly in summer or fall. In the light of the average atomic ratio of N/P in seawater, the limiting nutrient factor against the growth of phytoplankton was concluded to be phosphorus rather than nitrogen in Mokpo Harbour.

We have studied the phosphorus geochemistry in sediments from anoxic environments of Lake Shihwa. The dominant sedimentary phosphorus forms were detrital apatite P and Al-bound p, whereas the amount of Fe-bound P was low because of anoxic condition. Based on the correlation between TP(Total Phosphorus) and OC(Organic Carbon), the behavior of sedimentary phosphorus was influenced by organic matters. It shows that dissolved and solid phosphorus concentrations, the flux of phosphate and the correlation coefficients between sedimentary phosphorus and organic matter In St. Cl were higher than those in St. C2. The results indicate that the concentrations and distributions of phosphorus In sediments were controlled by organic matters.

The eco-hydrodynamic model was used to simulation water quality of Kwangyang Bay according to the environmental variation for appropriate water quality management. The mean concentration of COD was 3.3㎎/L, this exceeded the third class of water quality criteria. Waste water discharging loads showed approximately 90% of total pollutant loads. For satisfaction to below 10㎍/L of Chl. a and 2㎎/L of COD, above 35% reduction of present pollutant loads of point sources are needed.

Using a biochemical indicator, the effects of fecal pollution in the estuary of the Nakdong river and in the Chinhae Hay were investigated from summer to winter in 1997-1998. The biochemical indicator used in this study was coprostanol (5-cholestan-3-ol) which is a kind of fecal sterol. It is a useful tracer of fecal pollution, as it is only found in feces of mammals including humans. Coprostanol was less affected by surrounding environments than other indicators of fecal pollution such as fecal coliform or ammonium and was proved to be a good indicator of fecal pollution. Therefore, long-term observations of coprostanol and related compounds could be used as useful indicators for the effects of feces on marine environments and ecosystems.

Bathing beach may be one of the ocean resorts in popular, which peoples can easily access in summer. Three beaches in Jeiu island are surveyed about natural environmental conditions using coastal engineering technique and questionnaire are carried out. Also the satisfaction index on the sand size, wave height, water temperature, transparency and bottom slope is gained very well. The results obtained from this study can be utilized making a new artificial bathing beach in the future.

Herein, a theoretical method based on the catenary model Is applied to obtain the tension and drag forces acting on the trash curtain which is deployed at river for the prevention of floating debris inflow into the ocean. Under the assumption that fluid drag is perpendicular to the trash curtain, the tension and drag forces are uniform along the trash curtain. As a numerical model, the trash curtain is moored both symmetrically and asymmetrically with respect to the flow. The tension and drag forces on the trash curtain are investigated according to the change of Bap ratio and inclined angle of the trash curtain. Numerical results show that tension parameter is increased as the gap ratio is increased. It is found that tension parameter is reduced as the inclined angle is increased in the case of asymmetric deployment. The numerical model is applied to the specific problem for the trash curtain (200m) deployed at the Tancheon on the Han river. The maximum inflow velocity that anchor system can endure is 2m/sec.
The Methodology for Investigation on Seabed Litters and The Distribution of Seabed Litters in Ports around the Korean Coastline

Journal of the Korean Society for Marine Environment & Energy, volume 4, issue 3, 2001, Pages 74~80
Due to floating marine debris, seabed litters, dead shellfishes and polluted sediments, etc. , which are mainly caused by fishery activities in a large scale around the coastline, expansion of industrialized areas from economic development and drastic increase of free time by the improved standard of living, Korean coast is believed to be cast beyond the self purification of marine ecosystem. Seabed litters, if not remedied in a timely manner, will eventually lead to the overall disorder of benthic ecosystem. Thus, in order to prevent marine ecosystem from being thrown into confusion by seabed litters and to restore ocean environments, it is reasonable to investigate the current status of the seabed litters by carrying out an extensive examination on them and to equip ourselves for marine debris with an systemized tool that provides supports to the building process of an efficient methodology of litters disposal through managing related data appropriately. As an primary step to this goal, a systematic method of investigation is presented in this paper. With this methodology, the present state of the seabed titters is properly understood for the specified list of ports.
