We studied regional forumla at 1 Hz (forumla) around the Korean Peninsula based on broadband vertical component seismic records of six Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Global Seismographic Network stations and 19 Korean stations of the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM). Using 177 seismic events with magnitudes between 5.3 and 5.7 and depths less than 50 km, the reversed two station method was applied, and 94 high quality interstation paths were selected from 869 possible pairs. These results show high forumla paths around the Sea of Japan (East Sea) reflecting the typical oceanic structure and low forumla paths around northeastern China related to inactive seismicity. Assigning these path values into 193 cells around South Korea with a size of 1° by 1°, we observed that the regional forumla decreased gradually from east to west between 2 and 1×10-3.
