Abstract: The Han River Basin is the major river in South Korea, with a basin area of more than 26,000 square kilometers. Seven major dams are located in the North Han River Basin. These dams are operated primarily for hydropower generation, although flood control and water supply are also important objectives. The Han River Control System (HRCS) is a decision support computer software system developed by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to provide near real-time information on flooding conditions resulting from river operations. The system also provides reservoir operations necessary to meet downstream constraints. An overview describing the Han River Basin will be presented to highlight the importance of reservoir operations within the basin and the significance of a system that assists the user in determining how to operate the different reservoirs to best meet the different objectives. The HRCS components will than be described. These components include the following: TAMU, the rainfall-runoff module; CARIMA, the hydrodynamics module; OPTIMA, the reservoir optimation module; DAMBRK, the dam breach forecasting module; and the inundation mapping module, which uses the graphical information system, GRASS.
