Abstract
In this study, marine environmental information system (MEIS) data collected after May 2015 were
applied to stratification index (SI) of salinity in the Nakdong River Estuary (NRE) front the Noksan floodgate and NRE barrage, Busan Metropolitan City, South Korea. The brackish water zone environments (n = 14,
A, B, and C three lines), the temperature, flow direction, flow rate, salinity (psu), pH, and dissolved oxygen
concentration of the upper and bottom layers were measured using a multi-parameter display system and recording
current meter to assess the ebb and flood of the spring tide during April and July 2018. The average
surface layer and lower layer salinities of the Nakdong River located at the bottom of the Noksan floodgate (line
A), the Nakdong River on the east side of Eulsukdo Island (line B) and the right main stream of the Nakdong
River (line C) were 2.9-18.2 and 12.4-32.5 psu, respectively, and the mean surface
