To make reliable interpretations on the sparse spatial data, the spatial distribution characteristics that are inevitable for spatial estimation should be properly analyzed. Variograms have been widely used for obtaining the spatial characteristics inherent to data in spatial estimation problems. But their applications were limited as the basic information for further data estimation. Therefore, the additional analysis of the meaning of variograms is required for more reliable data processing and interpretations. In this paper, we investigated the proper meaning of variogram values and the specific features of distributions which can be obtained through variogram analysis. Variograms can provide the information on both linearity and the strength changes of interrelationships between the data sets according to the direction and lag distance. First, sill and range values, which are main parameters of variograms, were analyzed. Then a similarity range using spatial auto-correlation values was introduced to verify the applicability of linearity analysis through the comparative study of spatial distribution features of gravity and magnetic data collected in Hwasan caldera. Through these analyses, we were able to identify the dissimilar patterns of gravity and magnetic data that became apparent according to the distribution and variation ranges of the data sets. It is inferred that the gravity and magnetic anomalous bodies are extended to the ground because linearity direction of gravity and magnetic data appear similarly with linearity derection of topography in Hwasan caldera.

A number of dinosaur tracksites located at southern coast of the Korean Peninsula have continuously been damaged by sea-waves and weathering. To protect the dinosaur tracksites from the damage permanently and safely, we need to develop conservation programs as well as to collect data documenting the sites. We specifically applied digital photogrammetry to extensively record and document dinosaur tracks in the Namhae Gain-ri tracksite (Natural Monument No. 499) and were able to obtain 3D images data with it. The data of 3D images enable us to produce permanent documentation and preservation of the morphology of dinosaur tracks and tracksites. Moreover the weathering rate on time can be numerically analyzed by periodic measurements of the dinosaur tracksite and comparison of those measurements. The 3D modeling techniques also can be used in various ways including analyzing morphology of tracks, duplicating replicas for museum exhibitions, and posting the results on the Internet homepage.

Oh, Jae-Kyung ; Han, Chang-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean earth science society, volume 31, issue 2, 2010, Pages 139~150
DOI : 10.5467/JKESS.2010.31.2.139
This study investigated the depositional environment of the area of Anmyeondo in the mid-western coast of Korea. A total of 142 surface sediments were analyzed, and leveling survey was conducted as well in 12 transects at the sandy tidal flat in the area. The surface sediments are classified into several different types (slightly gravelly Sand, Sand, slightly gravelly sandy Mud, etc.) and they show fining-distribution toward the offshore. Textural parameters are characterized by being coarse, well sorted, positively skewed in the supratidal and intertidal flat, whereas being finer, poorly sorted, negatively skewed in the subtidal flat. According to the C-M diagram, the sediment transport modes are characterized by the mixed mode of bedload and graded suspension in supratidal and intertidal flat, and by graded suspension or uniform suspension in the subtidal flat. Histogram shows a bimodal distribution in the lower subtidal flat which is indicative of two sediment transport modes.
A Study of 10th Grade Students' Perception about the Universe and its Affecting Factors
Lee, Jin-Hee ; Choe, Seoung-Urn ;
Journal of the Korean earth science society, volume 31, issue 2, 2010, Pages 151~163
DOI : 10.5467/JKESS.2010.31.2.151
In this study, 10th grade students' views about the universe were surveyed and its affecting factors were investigated. Results showed that when hearing the word of 'the universe', 10th grade students considered it as 'a physical space'. Many students used 'feeling', or 'unknown space' to explain. When they portrayed the universe, many of them described it as a solar system scale. About the center and spatial limit of the universe, most students explained with the view of a heliocentric, geocentric or non-centered universe. Many students explained that the universe changed along with a direction as a physical space. These results were investigated again in different groups in terms of gender, beliefs, and familiarity with astronomy. As a result, students' models about the center, spatial limit, and the variation of the universe were different in the groups. Explanation of the origin of the universe was affected by the religious belief. Results showed that personal views of the universe are various, and many factors influence their views.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of instruction applying 3D Planetarium Software (Starry Night Pro 6.0) in terms of the learners' science achievement, changes of attitude (attitude toward science as well as scientific attitude), and self-directed learning ability. Participants were 198
graders. This study adopted a quasi-experimental research design in which experimental group was taught with 3D planetarium software vs. control group with traditional lecture-centered teaching method for 6 hours. The effects were investigated by independent sample t-test and paired sample t-test The results are as follows. The instruction using 3D planetarium software was more effective than the traditional lecture-centered curriculum in science achievement and self-directed learning ability. However, there were not meaningful differences in analyzing attitudes related science, the results that were so effective in elevation for self-directed learning could be gained. Students were interested in instruction applying 3D planetarium software, which was helpful for them to understand the content knowledge. Results showed that instruction with 3D planetarium software applied was effective in
grade science learning.
A Study on the Problem Solving Styles according to Left/Right Brain Preference of Earth Science Gifted Students

Journal of the Korean earth science society, volume 31, issue 2, 2010, Pages 172~184
DOI : 10.5467/JKESS.2010.31.2.172
This study is to investigate the problem solving styles according to the left /right brain preference among earth science gifted students. We took the R/LCT and the test of BPI to investigate the brain preference of earth science gifted students (N=16), and took S-CPST to investigate the problem solving styles on them. In the R/LCT, the earth science gifted students were classified into 3 groups (8 left-brain preference students, 7 right-brain preference students, 1 middle-brain preference student). In the BPI, 8 students had the appearance of left-brain preference, whereas 8 students had the appearance of right-brain preference. According to the result of S-CPST, first the left brain preference students tended to resolve a problem into simple components, then they put together each simple component. They prefer to solve a problem using numbers and mathematical signs logically, but they were afraid of giving trouble to describe own idea with pictures. Whereas the right brain preference students solved a problem with 3 steps. First, they saw an overall form of problem. Second, they tried to analyze each simple component of it, and then, made up all in one. Also, the right brain preference students observed the intuitive pattern of problem first, and then suggested the various problem solving methods later, and they took a solving plan using a picture in detail. In sum, earth science gifted students are unequal in problem solving styles according to the left/right brain preference. Thus, a teaching-learning method needs to be developed based on left/right brain preference for more effective gifted education.

Inquiring earth science phenomena is characterized by the followings: a big scale of time and space, inaccessibility, uncontrollability, and complexity. Thus, it is very difficult or, in some cases, impossible to investigate them through the actual manipulation in laboratories. Therefore, it is necessary to provide chance for students to experience scientific inquiry without actual manipulation in earth science classes. This study is to explore the role of reasoning based on a thought experiment as a representative model without actual manipulation, and to investigate features of various inquiry models using reasoning in classes. We can make implications when applying for applying each inquiry model to earth science classes, proposing a reasoning-based inquiry model embedded in earth scientific phenomena.
