ABSTRACT

In Korea, military authorities have neglected to consider impacts of military projects on localcommunities and natural environment. Moreover, local communities have had difficulties indealing with the Ministry of National Defense (MND), which was stubborn enough not toimplement environmental assessment on their projects. In this situation, recent case, “EIA ofBaekgol Division’s Howitzer Fire Training Site” in the Supreme Courtin which judges upheldthe Higher Court’s decision that the division violated the Environmental Impact Assessmentlaw by ignoring to implement EIA reveals that military projects can no longer forgoenvironmental assessment. The decision has serious ramifications on the future ofEnvironmental Impact Assessment in military-led projects.This paper examines the proper scope of EIA in military-led projects and, more specifically,fire training site and searches for how to improve it through ‘probable error,’ a military trainingmethod that is applied to real ‘howitzer’ fire training. Probable error of the artillery field manualis nothing more than an error that exceeded as often as it is not exceeded and its scientificmethod was demonstrated through real fire tests in the US. Army. If it is applied to improveassessment methods about the proper scope of EIA in military ‘howitzer’ fire training site,‘probable error’ will improve effect prediction, mitigation and reliability.
