Forest Environment and Conservation Department

In order to proactively respond to forest environmental change, Forest Conservation Department aims to assess climate change impact on forest ecosystems, develop adaptation technology to climate change, conserve biodiversity, manage Baekdudaegan Mountain Range , manage urban forests and Maeulsoop, predict forest fires and disasters, prevent and recover from debris flow, combat desertification, conserve water and soil at forest watershed, develop early rehabilitation technology for devastated forests, and implement comprehensive control of forest insect pests and diseases.

The Division of Forest Fire and Landslide Research studies on the scientific prediction and management technology to protect forest environment with public safety and property as well as minimize damage caused by forest disaster.

Forest Fire Research

We operate a national forest fire hazard forecasting system related to forest fire which can check a nationwide risk of forest fire at one view in real time.
Also, the department establishes a system that can predict a direction and speed of the forest fire in the event of forest fire to minimize damages and suppress the fire on a real time basis.
In addition, the National Forest Fire Experiment Center, which can simulate large-scale forest fire, has been established to research behavioral characteristics of forest fire and lead to develop eco-friendly forest fire Extinguishing Agents. Lastly, the department conducts research and development of forest tending work technique to reduce forest fire damages.

Landslide Hazard Mitigation Research

As recent climate change and corresponding change of disaster environment, the hazard of landslide and related disaster occur more frequently, and its type become more diverse. To mitigate landslide hazard including deep-seat earth creep and earthquake induced sediment disaster, landslide Hazard Mitigation research is focused on landslide hazard assessment and recovery technique for landslide damaged area. Moreover, To minimize damage in urban area due to landslide, improved warning-evacuation strategy, including integrated sediment disaster monitoring system and landslide early-waring system, are currently being developed

Research of Forest Disaster based Smart Technology

Futuristic Technology Research is aimed at utilizing UAV and image processing techniques in the forest disaster area. To achieve the research goal, ortho imagery and UAV LiDAR data are collected from forest fire and landslide damaged area.
Using collected geospatial data of forest disaster, we are focusing on developing an on-site spatial analysis algorithm and disaster information sharing platform.
