description The Gosan site on Jeju Island of South Korea is located at the northern part of the East China Sea, about 100 km south of the Korean peninsula, 500 km northeast of Shanghai, China, and 250 km west of Kyushu, Japan. The Gosan site is located at the western edge of the island at the top of a 72 m cliff, facing the East China Sea. Jeju Island is regarded as one of the cleanest areas in South Korea with low emissions of air pollutants. Picture of Gosan facility
