    A Study on the Geopark Utilizes as a Place of Teaching and Learning: The Case of Gangwon Peace Geopark

    Changhwan Kim | Jeong HaeYong | 2014, 3(2) | pp.89~96 | number of Cited : 15
    Abstract
    Korean Geography in the Revised Sociology Curriculum of 2009 aims to build up the ability to select, collect, analyze, synthesize various geographic information available in routine days, and to develop and use such geographic information in routine lives and leisure activities. Schools attempt to stimulate the learning ability of students at the education site, as well as facilitate the class related to concerned subject, through various outdoor learning, field trips, etc. The reality can be said to be very harsh, considering the difficulties in attaining the goals and realistic problems. However, there are many different geographic heritages scattered all over our surroundings and there are also valuable geographic locations that are not known to students around schools. Such geographic locations can be used as the site for education and learning, and particularly, effective education can be achieved by using the facilities in the Geoparks in regions where the Geopark system has been introduced. More effective learning can be guaranteed by using the Geopark Center of Gangwon Peace Geopark certified as National Geopark, Learning Centers of the Geopark, local information center, site-oriented learning that uses various information status boards, related websites, kiosks, integrated information improvement system, such as QR code recognition, in tandem with prior indoor education.

    Analysis of Climate-related Contents of Dokdo Focused on Description of Government Agencies

    Du Hyun Lee | Heui-Doo Park | 2014, 3(2) | pp.97~110 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    This study is to calculate the exact data values that had been insufficient research on the climate of islets during that time, to analyze and compare the information that fall into error, to promote research and education in islets of Dokdo meteorological data for accurate weather data with the calculated mean annual temperature of Dokdo, mean annual precipitation, annual mean wind speed and the same. By means of the analysis of climate data, it was confirmed that research organizations and major government agencies and local governments are providing such Ulleungdo Dokdo climate data. In addition, elementary, middle and high school textbooks recognized for Dokdo Awareness by the Northeast Asian History Foundation are providing Dokdo climate value for Ulleungdo climate values. Major research papers on Dokdo take advantage of the values provided by the present value of the wrong climate. The average annual temperature and annual precipitation in the song to promote Dokdo, ‘Dokdo is our land’ was revised data in the latest but are in error and take the mistake in spite of revising. The academic research, training materials Dokdo islets and Dokdo promotional material climate-related information by Islets including government agencies are unaccurately revealed. Thus, Korea Meteorological Adminstration, as well as the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other related departments should be suggests the accurate information.

    Slope Stability Analysis at Catchment Scale Using Spatially-distributed Wetness Index

    오성렬 | Lee, Giha | 2014, 3(2) | pp.111~126 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract
    This study presents an application of infinite slope stability method with consideration of root cohesion and spatially-distributed wetness index on the Woomyeon mountain landslide area due to torrential rain of July 27, 2011. Spatially-distributed model parameters were extracted based on digital elevation map, soil map, forest map, and then converted in to 10 m × 10 m spatial resolution data. The infinity flow direction algorithm was used to calculate the specific catchment area, which plays important role to estimate the spatially-distributed wetness index. Average daily rainfall of two automatic weather stations (Seocho and Namhyeon) were selected as rainfall input data on the slope stability assessment model under steady-state condition. Slope stability level was classified into four categories based on the factor of safety: unstable, quasi-stable, moderately-stable, stable. The simulation results showed that the slope stability was very sensitive to variation of slope steepness and most unstable areas within the study site were dominantly located in cutting-area surroundings along with the residential area and the mountaintop.

    The Study on the Change of Longitudinal Profiles Using 1-dimension Detachment-limited Bedrock Channel Model: Theoretical Approach

    김동은 | Jongmin Byun | SEONG, Yeong Bae | 2014, 3(2) | pp.127~137 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    Advance of computer technology have helped not only to perform the qualitative analysis, but also to make quantitative analysis on the landscape evolution. The advanced landscape evolution model can predict the future change of landscape as well as prove the previous landscape model. However, there is little research for using landscape evolution model for determining each landscape process in Korea. This research has attempted to introduce the theoretical frame in 1- dimension bedrock channel model and to simulate the model for understanding the effect of parameters controlling the change in channel geometry. The result of this study indicates that the rock uplift rate has a greater effect on the development of longitudinal profile than rate of erosion and degree of basin wideness also changes the longitudinal profile than others. This study suggests the fact that if we consider other geomorphic processes and combine them with this simple model, we can tell more stories about the landscape evolution processes.

    The Examination of Alternatives to the University Specialization in Economic Geography: A Case of the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom

    Jung Sung-Hoon | 2014, 3(2) | pp.139~146 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    The aim of this article is to examine the characterstic of the university specialization in the case of the University of Sussex in the UK, and to present some implications for universities in Korea and the conception for developing the index of the university specialization. The university specialization is that while maximizing current and potential specialization capacity of the university, it educates human capital which contributes to the regional, national and global development on the basis of specialized jobs. Within this context, there are four types of the university specialization; the highest performaned person-dependent specialization, the industryuniversity- research institute cooperation-based one, the individual department’ growth and performance-focused one and multi-disciplinary one throughout inter-department’s cooperation. In order to vitalize the university specialization, to activate the cooperative relationship between the university and regional or local society is required, by planning the program which a part of functions of the university can share with the society.

    The Change of Regional Development Paradigm and the Future of Development

    Lee Yong Gyun | 2014, 3(2) | pp.147~157 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract
    The policy and direction of regional development are influenced by the circumstance of world economy. Through the process of industrialization development has been recognized as the vital element of regional growth. The purpose of this research is to understand the paradigms of regional development focusing on the actors and limitations of those development paradigms, and to derive the alternative direction for the future development as the sustainable development. Developed western countries expanded liberal market system through industrialization process, but experienced problems such as the increase of poverty in the labor class, long term recession and unemployment. To deal with those problems Keynesian development policy was introduced to boost economic growth with effective demand and to increase of consumption with government welfare system. However, since the 1970s economic recession and budget deficit caused the limitation of Keynesian development policy, and neoliberalism development policy was introduced focusing on the deregulation, privatization, and openness in the market. However, the neoliberalism policy has derived various problems such as income and class inequality, and social conflicts and environment. The direction of future development has to consider the decrease of gap both in the global and local level, and the increase of social participation and the endowment of authority for the making of sustainable development.

    Children’s Urban Geographies and Child-Centered Approach: Review and Reflections

    Jin-Kyu Jung | 2014, 3(2) | pp.159~174 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract
    Children’s Urban Geographies is a relatively young field in the discipline of geography that has had a particular attention on children, and how their experiences and opportunities of urban space are spatially and socially constructed. This paper is intended to review the importance of the theory and practice of children’s urban geographies, and to highlight a child-centered philosophy and its embodied practice. The child-centered approach recognizes children as knowledgeable and responsible ‘agents’ who can freely construct their own understandings of their everyday space in which they live, play, and learn. It transforms our conceptualization of children by illuminating the need to research ‘with’ rather than ‘on’ children. This paper is especially drawn from the reflections on my earlier encounters with this new scholarship in geography and 3 years working experience with participating children who lived in a multi-cultural Hispanic Lower-Westside neighborhood in Buffalo, New York. I first examine the evolution of children’s urban geographies, with a particular emphasis on three key themes: the geography of children, the social construction of children and childhood, and children’s agency. Then, I, cautiously but optimistically, prospect its far-reaching implications on planning and policy. Child-centered approach provides a new perspective to explore the evolving process of children’s situated and grounded experiential and interpretive spatial knowledge production.
