IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

The coastal area’s missing data generation following previous climate change
Author : HYOSEON PARK(1), DONGWOO JANG(2)
ABSTRACT
Cities are becoming increasingly vulnerable to flooding because of rapid urbanization, installation of complex infrastructure,
and changes in the precipitation patterns caused by anthropogenic climate change (Willems, P. et al., 2012) Korea is also
concerned about dangerous and fast progressing climate change that influences the quantity and quality of water resources
(Park. H.S. et al., 2014). Accordingly, it is necessary to predict the future precipitation using the climate change scenarios
provided by Korea meteorological administration (KMA). The applicability of evaluation is required prior to using the climate
change scenarios.
In this study, we evaluated the applicability of the daily precipitation from the RCP scenarios provided by KMA and improved
the problem in order to solve the water issues. Particularly, we evaluated by comparing the spatial composition of climate
change scenarios grid map and the current topography. There was a lack of more than 4,000 grids (1kmⅹ1km) around the
coastal area. So we created new grids for these area using the Arc-GIS. The resulting map from our study is covering now
the entire area of the South Korean Peninsula so it can be used for future water resource assessments.
