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.

Harmful algal blooms in jinhae bay of korea
Author : Lee Moonock, Kim Jongkyu, Moon Jinhan
This study has been attempted to understand characteristics of algal blooms in relation to the marine environment of Jinhae Bay, located in the southern coastal waters of Korea, using 25 years worth of data since the first known occurrence of algal blooms in 1981. Skeletonema costatum, Heterosigma akashiwo and Prorocentrum sp. turned out to commonly appear as dominant causative organisms of the blooms in all the regions but their appearance conditions were different from place to place. That is, Skeletonema costatum appeared with a wide range of variations of water temperature and salinity, i.e. eurythermalᆞ euryhaline in Masan and Jinhae Bays but it appeared with a narrow range of variations of water temperature and salinity i.e. stenothermalᆞ stenohaline in other regions. Heterosigma akashiwo appeared under a wide range of variations of water temperature and salinity, i.e. eurythermalᆞ euryhaline in Masan and Haengam Bays but it appeared with a narrow range of variations of water temperature and salinity, i.e. stenothermalᆞstenohaline in Woumun Bay. Prorocentrum sp. appeared with a narrow range of variation of water temperature and a wide range of variation of salinity, i.e. stenotermal ᆞ euryhaline in Masan and Dangdong Bays but it appeared with a narrow range of variations of water temperature and salinity, i.e. stenothermalᆞ stenohaline in Haengam Bay.
