On 28 September 2018, a strike‐slip earthquake occurred in Palu, Indonesia, and was followed by a series of tsunami waves that devastated the coast of Palu Bay. The tsunami was recorded at the Pantoloan tide gauge station with a peak amplitude of ~2 m above the water level and struck at high tide. We use the Pantoloan tsunami waveform and synthetic...

Recent result of tsunami source inversion for the 1992 Flores earthquake
Conference Paper
In order to reliably assess tsunami hazard in eastern Indonesia, we need to understand how historical events were generated. Here we consider two such events: the 1674 Ambon and the 1992 Flores tsunamis. Firstly, Ambon Island suffered a devastating earthquake that generated a tsunami with 100 m run-up height on the north coast of the island in 1674...

High possibility of earthquake could lead to the high number of victims caused by it. It also can cause other hazards such as tsunami, landslide, etc. In that case it requires a system that can examine the earthquake occurrence. Some possible system to detect earthquake is by creating a vibration sensor system using accelerometer. However, the outp...

Tsunami hazard maps are generated for the coastline of the Mentawai Islands, West Sumatra, Indonesia, to support evacuation and disaster response planning. A random heterogeneous slip generator is used to forward model a suite of earthquake rupture scenarios on the Mentawai Segment of the Sunda Subduction Zone. Up to 1000 rupture models that fit co...

BUKU INI disusun untuk mengingatkan kita pada kejadian tsunami di Ambon pada tahun 1950. Saat itu mereka menyebutkan gempa bumi dengan istilah “Tanah Goyang” sedangkan “Air Turun Naik” sebagai istilah yang kita kenal sekarang dengan tsunami. Kejadian ini dialami oleh tiga negeri (nama untuk wilayah setingkat dengan desa) di Ambon yaitu Negeri Hutum...

Water surface level should get special attention as water can cause disasters such as flood when its surface exceeds a certain level. A real time early warning system to monitor water surface level is necessary for avoiding severe effects of flood to human life. A web-based water level measuring system using an ultrasonic sensor can be an alternati...

Article
A solitary wave is a nonlinear wave that travels undisturbed in shape and velocity as a result of a balance between dispersion and nonlinearity. According to the inverse scattering theory of KdV, a solitary wave will split into N-soliton due to decreasing depth. This phenomenon is simulated using the non-hydrostatic model SWASH. Simulations are co...

In this paper, wave propagation through Sonneratia sp. mangrove forest in waters of varying depth is considered. The modified mild-slope equation that accounts for wave dissipation in mangrove, as recorded in Vo-Luong and Massel (2008) is used here. In that formulation dissipation effect are accounted from two dominant mechanism: wave breaking and...

During the 2011 Tohoku tsunami, within only 3 minutes after the earthquake, the JMA issued three types of messages for coastal areas in Japan, which are tsunami advisory, tsunami warning, and major tsunami warning. These advisory and warning messages are visualized as color-coded lines along the Japanese coastlines on a small-scale map and broadcas...

The earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan in March 2011 was a terrible human tragedy that should serve as a wake-up call to earth scientists and disaster managers everywhere. Like the northeast Japan subduction zone prior to the 2011 earthquake, the subduction zone south of Java has no historical experience of an earthquake larger t...

Climate change is one of the trending issues in the last decade. One direct impact of climate change or global warming to the coastal sector is sea level rise, which potentially affected the coastal area, such as inundation and coastal erosion. The South Sumatra is a typical province which its area mostly consist of low laying and strongly exposed...

The 2010 Mentawai earthquake (magnitude 7.7) generated a destructive tsunami that caused more than 500 casualties in the Mentawai Islands, west of Sumatra, Indonesia. Seismological analyses indicate that this earthquake was an unusual “tsunami earthquake,” which produces much larger tsunamis than expected from the seismic magnitude. We carried out...

We present the first national probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment (PTHA) for Indonesia. This assessment considers tsunami generated from near-field earthquakes sources around Indonesia as well as regional and far-field sources, to define the tsunami hazard at the coastline. The methodology is based on the established monte-carlo approach to pro...

Wilayah pesisir barat Sumatra memiliki tingkat kejadian gempa bumi yang sangat tinggi, baik yang berasal dari darat maupun dari bawah laut. Hal ini dikarenakan wilayah tersebut berada di pertemuan Lempeng Indo-Australia dengan Lempeng Eurasia. Tingginya tingkat kegempaan, khususnya yang terjadi di bawah laut sangat berpotensi menimbulkan tsunami. P...

Conference Paper
Most part of Indonesian coastal areas are vulnerable to inundation potential due to global sea level rise. This inundation is predicted to cause permanent flood and worsen abrasion along coastal zone where many populations live, also will threaten impor-tant infrastructures and economic assets, as well as well known tourism areas. To anticipate the...

The Monday, July 17, 2006 Central Javan 7.7 earthquake triggered a substantial tsunami that killed 600 people along a 200km stretch of coastline. The earthquake was not reported felt along the coastline. While there was a warning issued by the PTWC, it did not trigger an evacuation warning (Synolakis, 2006). The Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System...

Based on data compiled during the period 1600-1999, 105 tsunami have occurred in Indonesia. Ninety-five events (90%) of them were caused by earthquakes in a shallow region at subduction and plate boundaries, 9 (8%) by volcanic eruption, and one (1%) by a landslide. To clarify the regional characteristics of tsunami, we defined 6 zones; West and Eas...
Article
Tsunami data during the period from 1600 to 2000 in Indonesia have been compiled to analyze the characteristic tsunamis. Since about the 90% of the tsunamis were generated by the earthquakes, the research focuses on numerical analysis for tsunamigenic earthquakes such as the 1994 East Java Tsunami and the 1996 Toli-Toli Sulawesi Tsunami. The natura...

Historical tsunami is an important input for assessing the future hazard. However, no complete information, particularly the source, that can be directly used in the tsunami hazard assessment. From limited available information, I am trying to answer where and how the tsunami in the past was generated. In this study, I am working on three historical tsunamis in Eastern Indonesia: the Ambon Island 1674, the Banda Sea 1852, and the Flores Island 1992.
