This study intended to reconstruct paleoclimate changes of the Korea peninsular during the Holocene by using the magnetic properties which are mass specific susceptibility and frequency dependence. Study areas were Kimyoung sanddune in Jeju, Unyo sanddune in west coast, Anin sanddune and Yeounpo sanddune in east coast. Samples from each study areas showed the highest mass specific susceptibiltiy and high level of frequency dependence in the paleosol stages. This results indicated that climate condition was warm and humid during the formation period of paleosol stages. According to the comparative analysis between this study’s records and chinese climate change records, study results coincided with chinese climate trends and Holocene climate optimum.
