    Abstract PDF
    This study was carried out to offer the systematical and scientific method of regionalenvironment conservation by deciding the rank using fuzzy theory, and try to find themethodology to accurately accomplished the regional environment assessment for sound landconservation. The results were as follows.To transform the Likert’s scale granted to assessment indicators into the type of triangularfuzzy number (a, b, c), there was conversion to each minimum (a), median (b), and maximum(c) in applying membership function. We used the center of gravity and eigenvalue leading tothe rank.In the sequential analysis of rank-based test of assessment indicators by triangular fuzzynumber, the result proclaimed that ranking of the indicators was, in the biotic field, in the orderof ‘dominance’, ‘sociality’, ‘coverage’ and in the abiotic one, ‘soil pH’, ‘T-N’, ‘soil property’, andin the qualitative one, ‘impact rating class’, ‘hemeroby degree’, ‘land use pattern’, and in thefunctional one, ‘protection of water resource’, ‘offer of recreation’, ‘protection of soil erosion’.Therefore, there was a difference between subjective rank from human and the rank fromtriangular fuzzy number. In other words, the scientific rank decision would be not so muchCorresponding Author: Sung-Gwan Jung, Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Kyungpook National University, 1370 Sangyeok-dong, Daegu702-701, Korea Tel: 82-53-950-5783 Fax: 82-53-950-6779 E-mail:

    PARK IN-HWAN , 장갑수 | 2006, 15(6) | pp.357~372 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The excessive land activities in farming can cause soil erosion, inundation by a flood, andfallow. So far land evaluation has been analyzed using the land use limitation derived from theexcessive land activities. This study was done for evaluating the agricultural fields by using 3land use limitations, inundation potential, soil erodibility potential, and fallow potential. Thestudy area is Ibang-myeon, Changnyeong-gun, Gyeongnam-province, Korea.A logistic regression model was applied to recognize the inundation potential by a flood inthe Nakdong river basin. And potential soil erodibility index (PSEI) was derived from USLEmodel to analyze the soil erodibility potential. And a probability model from a logisticregression model was applied to detect the fallow potential.Therefore, we found 220.7ha for the 4th grade and 86.1ha for the 5th grade was analyzed aswater damage potential. Large area near Nakdong river have problem to grow the rice due tothe damage by water inundation. And 213.6ha for the 3rd grade and 103.3ha for 4th grade wasdetected as a result of the analysis of soil erosion potential. The soil erosion potential was highwhen within-field integrity of soil was not stable, or the kinetic energy was high or the slopelength was long due to a steep slope of a specific land. And 869.1ha for 3rd grade, 174.9ha for4th grade, and 110.6ha for 5th grade was detected to be distributed having the fallow potential.Corresponding Author: In-Hwan Park, Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Coll. of Agr. & Life, Kyungpook National University Tel: +82-53-950-5784 E-mail:

    A Development of Environmental Capacity Estimation Model Using the National Environmental Assessment Indicators

    LEE, Woo-Kyun , 이종수 , JEON SEONG WOO | 2006, 15(6) | pp.385~394 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Land resources should be managed not only for human utilizations but also forenvironmental preservation. Based on that, environmental capacity should be estimated in bothenvironmental and developmental ways.This study was performed for developing an estimation model for relative environmentalcapacity, considering both Development Tolerance Index(DTI), which shows environmentaland ecological conservation value and is based on national environmental assessmentindicators of the Korea Ministry of Environment, and Development Attractiveness Index(DAI),which shows topographical characteristics and geographical accessibility.The relative environmental capacity in this study can be helpful to coping with the conflict inplanning and managing the use of land resources. The relative environmental capacity in thisstudy, however, did not include either environmental or ecological sensitivity of land resources.This limitation should be solved through further research.

    KI JUNE SUNG , Soyoung Park , Young-Kee Jang and 1 other persons | 2006, 15(6) | pp.417~423 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purification ability of indoor plants for volatile organic compounds was investigated.Philodendron selloum and Spathiphyllum sp. were tested for removal of toluene andtrichloroethylene in the artificially contaminated reactor under laboratory conditions. Eachplant was placed in right side of the reactor and the TCE and toluene concentration change withtime were monitored. In the reactor with Philodendron, the TCE concentrations of left and rightsides were compared to examine the removal effects by plant. In the reactor with Spathiphyllum,air was circulated before sampling, and thus average removal effects by plants on target VOCwere observed.Both plants showed clear effects on removal of VOCs from contaminated indoor air. Theremoval efficiency of Philodendronand Spathiphyllumwere similar and showed 30 - 46% and 31 -47% of purification effects, respectively. The results of this study showed that air purificationusing plants is an effective means of reduction on indoor VOCs concentration level and reducerelated health risk though, supplementary purifying aids or proper ventilation were alsosuggested.

    Characteristics of Respirable Particulate Matter from the Third and Fourth Industrial Complex Area of Daejeon City using Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis

    Jongmyoung Lim , Lee, Jin-Hong | 2006, 15(6) | pp.425~433 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Instrumental neutron activation analysis was used to measure the concentrations of 27elements associated with respirable particulate matter (PM10) that were collected from theThird and Fourth Industrial Complex Area of Daejeon City. The distribution patterns ofelements were clearly distinguished with their concentrations varying across more than fourorders of magnitude. The mean for Al were recorded to be the highest value of 1,527 ng/m3,while that for In showed the lowest value of 0.1 ng/m3. If compared in terms of enrichmentfactors, it was found that certain elements (e.g., As, Br, Cl, Cr, I, In, Sb, Se, and Zn) are enrichedin PM10 samples of the study site. The results of factor analysis indicated six factors withstatistical significance, which may exert dominant controls on regulating the elementalconcentration levels in the study area.

    CHO JAE HEON , Lee, Jong-Ho | 2006, 15(6) | pp.435~441 | number of Cited : 12
    Abstract PDF
    For the calibration of rainfall-runoff model, automatic calibration methods are used insteadof manual calibration to obtain the reliable modeling results. When mathematical programmingtechniques such as linear programming and nonlinear programming are applied, there is apossibility to arrive at the local optimum. To solve this problem, genetic algorithm is introducedin this study. It is very simple and easy to understand but also applicable to any complicatedmathematical problem, and it can find out the global optimum solution effectively. Theobjective of this study is to develope a parameter optimization program that integrate a geneticalgorithm and a rainfall-runoff model. The program can calibrate the various parametersrelated to the runoff process automatically. As a rainfall-runoff model, SWMM is applied. Theautomatic calibration program developed in this study is applied to the Jangcheon watershedflowing into the Youngrang Lake that is in the eutrophic state. Runoff surveys were carried outfor two storm events on the Jangcheon watershed. The peak flow and runoff volume estimatedby the calibrated model with the survey data shows good agreement with the observed values.
