ABSTRACT

The bamboo forest on the side of the Taehwa River of Ulsan forms the colony on a large scale, and it was originally formed in the early Joseon Dynasty. The major purpose of the bamboo forest was to form the flood damage control forest for preventing the damage of the agricultural land by the flooding of the river and also to perform a role of the shelterbelt for blocking the wind flowing from the lower region of the Taehwa River. But this study attempts to investigate the real efficacy of wind-breaking first as specific studies have thus far never been conducted concerning the complementary effect of the bamboo forest on the Taehwa riverside. To investigate the effect of the bamboo forest, it attempted to measure the wind speed by installing the anemometer at three points of the river. As a result, it was found that the wind speed reduced by 50% in the upper region of the river compared to its lower region and that temperature rose in its upper region by 3℃ compared to that of its lower region. Accordingly, it was found that the bamboo forest on the Taehwa riverside not only performed a role as the bank of preventing the flooding of the river but also excelled in the effect of protection against the wind. Like this, it is thought that the complementary forest using the bamboo will perform a large role in both reducing the damage induced by flooding on the riverside and protecting against the wind because of its strong viability and the possibility of its dense forest.
