Abstract

Korean modern geography started when the Korean Geographical Society was established in 1945. The 60-year history is by no means long, but Korean geography has seen dramatic growth in both quality and quantity. Owing to the growth of Korean geography, Korea came to hold the International Geographical Congress (IGC) in 2000, which has been said to be one of the most successful congresses in IGC history. Korean modern geography can be divided into five periods : from inception through the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, and after the year 2000. Each period shows distinct characteristics, and especially great progress has been made since 2000. (The rest omitted)
