Coastal and Watershed Resources and Hazards Modeling
Dr. Danang Sri Hadmoko, M.Sc
Landslides are frequently responsible for considerable loss of money andlives and the most widespread and damaging hazard in the world. Landslide canbe triggered by intense rainfall, earthquake, ground water level change, stormwaves or rapid stream erosion. Landslides may be corrected or controlled by oneor more combinations of four principle measures: drainage, slope geometrymodification, retaining structures and internal slope reinforcement. Landslides andrelated slope stability problems disturb many parts of the world but experienceindicates that understanding, recognition and treatment of landslide hazards is stillfragmentary. A particular area requiring attention concerns the selection anddesign of appropriate, cost-effective remedial measures, which in turn require aclear understanding of the conditions and processes that caused the landslides.Much progress has been made in developing techniques to minimize the impact of landslides, although more efficient, quicker and cheaper methods could wellemerge in the future (Hadmoko 2007,Yilmas and Keskin 2009).Recently, developing techniques and methods are managed and analyzeinformation and data using geospatial information and technology which knownas Geographic Information System (GIS) and it is widely used as tool formapping.Landslide mapping has become an important tool for risk assessment,prediction, and management (Hadmoko 2007, Mantovani, F et al 2009)Synthetic maps showing slopes at risk of movement have proven to bevaluable for planning, risk analysis, and design of infrastructure. Whengeomorphological and geological surveys are imported into a GeographicInformation System environment, thematic maps can be generated to meet theneeds of a wide variety of end users. Applications for products derived from thesesurveys include: thematic cartography implementation and improvement; creationof geological and Geomorphological databases; thematic mapping aimed atmitigating geoenvironmental risks such as landsliding and flooding; remotesensing for geological and geomorphological mapping; land management andhazard mitigation; hydrological modeling; water resources protection andmanagement; numerical modeling; environmental impact assessment; andmanaging environmental emergencies (Turner and Schuster1996 in Mantovani,Franco. et al 2009).Landslides hazard assessment has been playing an important role in spatialplanning due to the increasing of landslide disasters occurring in many regions inIndonesia. Various methods of landslide hazard assessments have been proposedand conducted by earth scientists from the simplest method by using the simpleparameter that caused landslide to very complex methods by using the largenumber of terrain parameters and also the complex quantitative landslide hazard
