ABSTRACT

Greenbelt was designated by Korean government to prevent indiscreet urban sprawling for 14 large cities in 1971. Importunate claims on deregulation of greenbelt system was continued in these days. But, ecological role of greenbelt as fundamental information for balanced decision making was not clarified sufficiently yet. In Ulsan metropolitan area, we clarified the roles of greenbelt system and prepared the sustainable management and improvement plans by analyzing ecological characteristics of vegetation established in Greenbelt and its surrounding area. Decrease of forest cover in greenbelt was lower than that of exterior and interior of greenbelt. Fragmentation patterns of forest cover corresponded with the pattern of forest cover. NDVI of greenbelt was higher than that of inner greenbelt and similar to that of exterior greenbelt. Surface temperature showed similar trend to that of NDVI. In consequence, greenbelt system has carried out well its primary roles. To mitigate negative effects from urbanization, we discussed management and improvement plans to promote ecological quality of greenbelt and urban landscape.
