Abstract: Songdo Beach in Youngil Bay on the east coast of Korea has suffered erosion problem since 1978. In order to explore the reasons of the erosion a field campaign and numerical modeling works have been undertaken by research institutes with the support of Pohang City Authority. Wave-driven current fields for several situations were computed by using an existing software KU-BATH-02 developed at Kookmin University. The model results help explanation of local bathymetric changes around Songdo Beach in Youngil bay.
