    The Relationship Between Plant-Soil-Water

    Have you ever heard of the relationship made between plants and other elements? Like humans, plants are also related to other elements, namely water and soil. The relationship that exists between water, land and plants is a very important relationship for an ecosystem. The three of them must be related and work together. How are relationships built? A brief explanation will be explained below. The growth and production produced by plants is highly dependent on the harmonious relationship between plants, water and soil. How is the problem? To put it simply, water and land, both of which are the main natural resources that act as determinants of life in the…

    Swedian Coastal Management

    Based on coastal typologies in the Swedish region along with threats and problems that may arise, it is necessary to manage integrated coastal areas. Sweden in managing coastal areas applies the following strategies 1. Strategies at the central level Although the management of coastal areas, in this case relating to disaster mitigation is the authority of the municipal government and landowners, the Swedish central government outlines guidelines, legal instruments through the Nature and Conservation Act, and conducts national vulnerability studies. In 2007, a study entitled “Sweden faces climate change: Threats and opportunities” began. The special commission called the Commission for Climate and Vulnerability is responsible for researching how Sweden’s climate…

    Ecosystem Related To The Coast And Watershed

    Harmony comes from the Greek word “harmonia” which means that it is harmoniously bound. In the field of philosophy, harmony is the cooperation between various factors in such a way these factors can produce an organized unity (Wikipedia). So, how is the harmoniousness created in an ecosystem related to the coast and watershed? Simply based on the picture above, harmoniousness will be created if the interaction between irrigate of necessity in the paddy field area and the availability of it in the watershed goes accordingly. Upstream basin, storing water that is stored in the ground from rain then flows it to the middle part of the basin for agricultural activities and the downstream basin for fishing activities. Rice planted in paddy fields in the middle watershed, has a limit of water needs that have to fulfilled in order to be able to grow-flowering-filled to be suitable for harvesting until it…

    Coastal System In Transition

    At the 2016 EC-Council Security Analyst (ECSA) conference in Bremen, several notes were produced. The first is the coastal situation from natural conditions which are then anthropogenically modified shows that humans play an increasingly important role for the development of coastal and estuary science. Second, humans who influence global climate and environmental changes dramatically change the structure and function of coastal systems to systems with new conditions. Third, changes in the potential of ecosystem resources and services will significantly affect people’s lives. Then came a statement that was raised to be a special issue, ”We are the only ones who can change, through effective governance to encourage change to others to reduce pressure on coastal ecosystems.” From this statement, we must…

    Watershed Management

    What do you think is the main thing in watershed management? Water availability? Conservation? Continuity ? All of that is true. But there is one main thing to note, that the purpose of watershed management is nothing but to achieve community welfare. A watershed is an area bounded by the highest topography where the rainfall that falls in it will be stored, utilized and flowed to an output point by the main river and its branches. The area has three elements in it that are interrelated with one another.  These elements are Abiotic, Biotic and Culture.  The preservation of these three elements to always harmonize is a major factor in realizing sustainable…
