A New Hope Emerging in Taean

A group of experts at home and abroad visited Taean on Dec. 9, which was hit severely by the nation's worst-ever oil spill one year ago. They participated in recovery efforts and related environmental research after the oil spill accident.
"I have been here three times over the last year and this is first time perceiving the sound of sand,” said Kazue Tazaki, professor of earth science at Kanazawa University in Japan, as she was collecting some sample pebbles on Malipo Beach, one of the most badly affected areas. “That means there's no material between grains, it's clean," added the professor, whose research is focused on nature's self-cleansing functions.
