Re-estimation of Settling Velocity Profile Equations for Muddy Cohesive Sediments in West Coasts

Journal of the Korean Society for Marine Environment & Energy, volume 5, issue 1, 2002, Pages 3~10
Quantifying the settling velocities of fine-cohesive sediments is very essential in the study of ocean pollutions as well as sedimentations. Settling properties of fine-cohesive sediments are influenced largely by aggregation which occurs as a consequence of interparticle collision and cohesion of particles. Since the degree of cohesion of fine-cohesive sediments depends on physico-chemical properties such as grain size distribution, percentage of organic materials, and mineralogical compositions, and these physico-chemical properties varies regionally, the settling velocities of fine-cohesive sediments for a specific site should be determined through field or laboratory experiment. Recently, settling velocities of fine-cohesive sediments in Saemankeum coasts and Kunsan Estuary have been measured through laboratory experiments. Using these data, the previously proposed well-known settling velocity equations for fine-cohesive sediments are examined and a new equation is developed for better representation of the measured data in this study. The newly developed settling velocity equation is simpler in the form and easier in determining the related coefficients than the previous well-known equations.

Directional breaking waves are generated by the component wave focusing both in direction and frequency based on constant wave steepness and constant wave amplitude spectrum models. The generated breaking waves are classified in the incipient, single and multi breaking waves. The characteristics of directional breaking waves are investigated in terms of surface profile parameters of wave crest steepness and asymmetry. The evolution of breaking wave characteristics is analyzed in a view of focusing efficiency. It shows that the front steepness and vertical asymmetry play an important role in breaking process, while the crest rear steepness and horizontal asymmetry are nearly constant during the process. The superposition of directional components greatly enhances the focusing efficiency and it suggests that characteristics of directional breaking waves may significantly different from uni-directional ones.

In this paper, the selection of transport route for import-export container cargo based on the sacrifice model and CO₂ emission was investigated. At first, the transportation of import-export container cargo, the transport share of each transport route, the CO₂ gas emission, the sacrifice model and the time value of import-export container cargo were investigated. And next, the selection of transport route based on the sacrifice model was investigated for the transport of import-export container cargo from Seoul to Pusan Port. Finally, the transport route was also selected by using the sacrifice model including the effect of CO₂ emission. The research results show that the transport route selection results of import-export container cargo based on the sacrifice model represents the present status of the transportation of import-export container cargo very well. And also the research results show that the reduction of transport time was very effective to increase the share of coastal transportation.

Recently, there have been frequent environmental threats associated with the red tide. The discharge of bilge water and waste lubricating oil from fishing vessels is known to be the major cause of such problems. In oder to treat those wastes, post processing units at harbours are being considered, and an accurate prediction of the amount of such wastes is required. In this paper we have proposed a method to estimate the amount of bilge water and waste lubricating oil from fishing vessels. We identified the key parameters affecting the quantity of oily bilge water and waste lubricating oil, and proposed a prediction model. We applied the present model to estimate the quantity of oily bilge water and waste lubricating oil in the sample fishing port.

To study the distribution of organophosphorus pesticides which are extensively used for agriculture in Korea. Surface sea water samples were taken from 2 coastal areas during July and :;eptember of 1999 and sediment samples were collected from Kyeonggi bay in July of 1999. These samples were analyzed using a Gas Chromatography/Nitrogen Phosphorus Detector(GC/NPD). In coastal waters of the study areas IBP was commonly found the most compound. Traces of Diazinon, DDVP, Ethoprouhos and Chlorpyrifos were also encountered. Concentration of the other major organophosphorus pesticides(Disulfoton, Parathion Methyl, Fenchlorfos, Prothiofos, EDDP) were generally be below the detection limit of the employed analytical method. Tn sediment of the study areas Chlorpyrifos w3s found the most compound. Temporal and geographical distribution of individual organophosphorus pesticides is likely to be affected by types of agricultural practices in the watershed.

In order to understand behaviors of heavy metals around the artificial Lake Shihwa in the vicinity of Kyunggi Bay in Korea in relation with huge environmental changes due to construction of huge artificial lake, water samples were collected from Lake Shihwa and its tributaries from 1996 to 1998 and analyzed. Due to extreme pollutant discharge from various kinds of anthropogenic sources such as the Banweol and Shihwa Industrial Complexes and cities, the Shihwa and its tributaries have been polluted in waters with various heavy metals. The enrichment factors of particulate heavy metals in water of streams and storm sewers were very high. All of the heavy metals observed in the waters showed relatively high temporal and spatial variations. In surface waters of the lake during the desalination after the dike establishment, spatial distributions of heavy metal concentrations were mainly controlled by various biogeochemical factors as well as input of industrial and municipal wastewaters, while, physical mixing was minor factor Pb and Co showed a strong affinity to particle phase, however the affinity to dissolved phase was dominated in Ni, Cu and Cd. Water quality of the artificial Lake Shihwa has been deteriorated by direct discharge of untreated wastewater and heavy metals have been accumulated in the lake system. Therefore, luther environmental improvement plan should be programmed subsequently

This study were observed to the conditions of organic pollution applying to tile environmental assessments based on macrobenthos around the raft culture ground which became an issue by organic matter input in Jinhae Bay. Three stations, mussel farm, oyster farm and the control station on which rarely culture activities were fixed and have analyzed to the sediment characteristics and macrobenthic communities. Muddy substrates between 6.0 and 6.60 on mean grain size have prevailed to the bottom layer in all stations. The highest organic matter content of 2.8% was observed to the mussel farm while the lowest one of 1.5% was recorded on the control area. As a total, 79 species from seven phyla were identified. Comparing to shell farms, the control station have composed to more diversified community structure. In the mussel and the oyster farm, opportunistic species, living in high organic contents area, Lumbrineris longifolia, Heteromastus. filiformis in polychaetes and Corophium sinense in amphipod were dominated. As results on environmental assessment, in spite of changing to the species composition and densities seasonally, the mussel farm have recorded only to moderately polluted condition.
