    The Empirical Study on Local Government Disaster Management System’s Demanded Competency and Resilience

    Roh, Sungmin | 채은경 | Lee Chang-Kil | 2014, 10(12) | pp.21~39 | number of Cited : 7
    Disaster scholars have investigated the nature of organizational resilience, but extant research has not examined various strategies within provincial government system. The questions of how local government disaster management system’s demanded competency influence disaster resilience and sustainability remains unanswered. In this study, we analyze the current problems of disaster management system in demanders’point of view through survey and then address suggestions based on each entity's recognitions and understandings related. Results based on the data analysis demonstrated that 4 core competencies (responsibility, expertise, connectivity, responsiveness) are the most attributed (regardless of class) in the order based on competency demands. In addition, a great discrepancy between practical experience group and working inexperience group is also identified in the recognition of competency demands. The findings confirm that the coordinating role of the provincial governments is critical to the building of a resilient community in terms of inter-organizational collaboration, and demonstrate the steering role of the provincial governments with regard to resilience.

    Characteristics of Local scour at Trunk Section of a Ruble Mound Breakwater with Inclined Slope

    조갑필 | KIM KYOUNG HO | 오현식 | 2014, 10(12) | pp.41~55 | number of Cited : 0
    A breakwater is a structure protecting an area from wave action. Scour is one of the failure modes of breakwater. Soundings reveal large potential risks. Scour at rubble mound breakwater is caused by the steady streaming induced by the standing waves. The steady streaming depends on the angle of the breakwater slope, , the incident wave height, H, the incident wave period, the water depth, , the bed roughness characterized by the sand-grain size, , the water density, and the water viscosity, . From dimensional analysis, the scour characteristics for the case of the no-suspension-mode transport can be found to depend on the number, , Shields number, , number. The scour depth in the equilibrium scour phase were analyzed by non-dimensional parameters such these. Especially the scour depth have good correlation with the KC number which includes the Irribaren number

    An Empirical Study on the Relationship Between Non-regular Worker’s Job stress, Problem Drinking, and Mental Health

    Soo Kyung Park | CHUNG-KWON LEE | 2014, 10(12) | pp.57~76 | number of Cited : 15
    This study examined the causal relationship between non-regular worker’s problem drinking, job stress and mental health focusing on the tension reduction hypothesis and intoxication hypothesis with self-report survey data based on 333 non-regular workers in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do in May 2015. The results showed that mental health appeared to have a complete mediating effect in the relationship between job stress and problem drinking, while the mediating effect of problem drinking in the relationship between job stress and mental health seems partial. That is, a high job stress resulted in mental health problem such as depression and/or anxiety, and mental health also affect problem drinking. Based on the results, the study discussed mental health interventions for non-regular workers to relieve job stress and problem drinking.

    A Study for Flood Control of Namgang Dam with Flood Guide Curve in Flood Event

    강태욱 | SangJin Lee | 최선호 | 2014, 10(12) | pp.77~92 | number of Cited : 2
    Upstream area of Namgang Dam is mountainous and has steep channel bed slopes, so the flood hydrograph from a storm rises rapidly. Namgang Dam operators have difficulties in flood control every year because the dam has small flood control capacity for catchment area and there are some restrictions on upstream and downstream of Namgang Dam to store or release water. The purpose of the study is to propose a flood guide curve in flood event of Namgang Dam for effective flood control. We analyzed major historical 14 flood events and simulated them by the COSFIM(Coordinate Operation System for Flood control In Multi-reservoir) that is hydrological flood routing model. The flood guide curve of Namgang Dam was determined by estimating application time of the flood guide curve and operation guide stages & ranges in process of flood time. The flood guide curve may be effectively used in flood control of Namgang Dam.

    A Conceptual Review of Resilience from a Disaster Perspective

    Jin Dong Shin | 김미선 | KIM TAE HYUN and 1other persons | 2014, 10(12) | pp.93~107 | number of Cited : 2
    This study aims to conceptualize resilience from a perspective of disaster management. To do this, we organized the concepts and principles of resilience from literature review. Furthermore, we analyzed the famine policies of Joseon Dynasty during little ice age based on the framework of 5Rs(Robustness, Redundancy, Rapidity, Resourcefulness and Regional competence) for enhancing resilience. The results show that Joseon Dynasty responded to famine, a kind of disaster due to climate change, comprehensively and systematically. The response of Joseon corresponds to the concept and the 5Rs framework of resilience. These results support that the concept and the 5Rs framework of resilience could be a new paradigm of disaster management through institutional improvement planning in the future.

    Social Capital and Crisis Management of Public Health

    Kim SANG-WEON | 2014, 10(12) | pp.109~127 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Relying upon recent social science and public health science literature on social capital theory, this study tested the hypotheses that areas with higher levels of social capital and social support will have lower mortality rates. Korea is a member of OECD with moderate mortality rates. Although its overall mortality is the lower rank among the OECD members, local rates of mortality vary widely. Similarly, the level of social capital provided by local government varies throughout Korea due to the level of development and financial condition. Utilizing data from Korean regions(n=229) and controlling for other structural covariates, Ordinary Least Squares(OLS) regression was employed to estimates the effects of social capital on regional mortality rates. As expected, the results provided some partial support for direct effects of social capital on mortality. The findings showed that regions exhibiting high level of social capital and social support were regions with lower level of mortality rates. The findings are discussed in the social context of Korean regional specific conditions and of the meaning of recent research of social capital and mortality.

    Jaeho Seo | Hee-Dong Pyo | 2014, 10(12) | pp.147~169 | number of Cited : 2
    Spills from ships in times of accident are extremely difficult to respond and the enormity of damages are beyond imagination due to extraordinary situations of the seas. The Marine Environment Management Act of Korea has been the framework act for the response of both spilt oils and hazardous and noxious substances(HNS) with focuses on spilt oil response. However, considering the high risk associated with the HNS to marine environment/ecosystem and human welfare as well as economic losses, revision of the existing law to fully cover the HNS response. According to the review of the existing policies and measures on preparedness and response to the HNS spill in accordance with the law, it would be extremely difficult to effectively respond to HNS emergency as the current law does not have clauses for preparedness and response for HNS, clauses for chemicals and equipment for response, and clauses for deploying the response vessels. In order to overcome the discrepancies of the current law which mainly focuses on oil spill response, this study suggests to revise the law to include the clauses for chemicals and equipment for HNS response and the deployment of HNS vessels.

    Sunggu Jo | CHOI DONG-JAE | 박정환 and 1other persons | 2014, 10(12) | pp.305~320 | number of Cited : 0
    In Korea, private investigation business had been called as Heungsineop but it changed to messenger center from 1970s. Foreign private investigation agencies have started to run business as crisis management agency, consulting agency after Korea joined OECD in 1996. foreign private investigation agencies are still growing illegally by using similar names to private investigation business and today, these are covered doing illegal acting like shadowing, phone-tapping, even contract through media sources. Today, according to statistical data by the National Police Agency late 2012, messenger agencies are around 1574 in domestic and 939 of those are in the metropolitan area. Illegal types are uncovered as investigating personal life 27(68%), personal information offering 7(18%), location tracing 5(12%), illegal claim collection 1(2%) plus, clients for these company are uncovered as housewife 196(34%), company employee 152(27%), independent businessman 78(14%), profession 35(6%). Correctly present situation and dispersion of domestic private investigation businesses like security company because private investigation system has not been enacted in domestic, until now. Thus, this study try to analyze demand of private investigation for a proposal in legislation process which is pending in 19th assembly like Yun Jae-Ok's 「All Amendments Private Security Act」 and Song Young-Geun's 「Private Invstigation Act」 so we expect to that private investigation system is introduced to Korea as soon as possible.
