In the tidal flats of the Nakdong Estuary, eight weirs were installed as part of the Four Major River Restoration Project in 2011, and the environment changed from a flowing stream to a still water stream. As the Nakdong River’s weir was permanently opened in February 2022, the topography and ecological environment are expected to large change. In this study, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry was conducted on the tidal flats of the Nakdong Estuary in November 2021, the environment before the Nakdong River floodgates were opened. The study area was surveyed using the Network-RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) method to obtain Ground Control Point (GCP), and using an UAV, orthographic image and digital elevation model were generated for an area of 3.47 ㎢ near Jin-u island and 2.75 ㎢ near Shin-ja island. A result of spatial resolution of 1.8 cm was obtained, the result was verified using checkpoints, and results with accuracy exceeding 1 cm were obtained in both Sin-u Island and Jin-woo Island. In the future, changes in the topography and sedimentation environment of this area are expected, so it will be useful data for various research and conservation management.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The Hwangdo tidal flat has been subjected to local hydrodynamic changes caused by the construction of seawalls and bridges, which are changing the distribution of sediments and topographic characteristics. These changes would affect the sedimentary environments. It is essential to establish sedimentary environments dataset such as sediment distributions and elevation in order to understand the sedimentary environments and the pattern of change in the tidal flat. Therefore, between 2004 and 2013, data on sedimentary environmental factors such as surface sedimentary facies and elevation were obtained through the field survey, and soil moisture content of each sediment was measured to analysis the correlation between seawater and optical reflectance in the tidal flat. As a result, 12 sedimentary facies were distributed in the Hwangdo tidal flat, and the sand content and elevation gradually increased between 2004 and 2013. It was also shown that the amount of seawater present in the surface decreased as elevation and grain size increased. These data will be useful for understanding the changes in the sedimentary environments and for establishing plans for change and conservation management in Hwangdo tidal flat.
