Image Caption:
Both Koreas are visible in this north-looking view of the Korean
Peninsula, excluding the far west of N. Korea. The Kyongi Gulf
of the Yellow Sea and the cities of Inchon (1) and Seoul (2) are
visible to the west and the Sea of Japan to the east. Major UN
forces landed at Inchon during the Korean War. Fishing is the ma-
jor industry off the extremely indented, island-studded southern
coast (bottom right). (S27-35-043)
