    Watershed Ecosistem Management

    There are 3 ecosystem components in the watershed, namely abiotic, biotic, and culture. All three work together to form a unity which is the basis of whether the management of the watershed is running well or not. Each ecosystem has different problems so that management is also different. ABIOTIC Watershed problems in terms of abiotic components are broad enough to only be chosen based on upstream and downstream causal impacts. Some issues that become important points are erosion-sedimentation, flooding, and water quality. These three problems become important keys in the problems in the watershed and clearly the impacts caused by a single upstream-downstream unit. Erosion and excessive sedimentation problems have…

    Restored Watershed

    Based on its classification, watersheds are divided into watersheds that must be restored and watersheds that need to be maintained.  A watershed that must be restored is a watershed whose carrying capacity is not running as it should so.  Land conditions, quality, quantity, water continuity, and socioeconomic conditions in the watershed that need to be restored are not going well so that the following steps are needed to restore it.  1. Optimization of land use in accordance with the functions and carrying capacity of the region:Steps that can be taken such as banning land use on sloping land for tobacco cultivation.  Tobacco is a plant that cannot stand the puddles…

    Coastal Management Based On Eco-Tourism

    Coastal management can be done in several ways either in a constructive vegetative or bureaucratic way. Good coastal management can bring benefits to the surrounding community. It is recognized that it is not easy to build community awareness to jointly manage a coastal area that it becomes an area of economic value which still prioritizes the sustainability and sustainability of natural resources on the coast. One example of management that has proven to bring economic benefits to the community is the management of the Pemuteran marine tourism area in Buleleng Bali Indonesia. Interestingly this management can work well thanks to the awareness of the community that cannot be separated from the role of local…

    Watershed Hydrological Function

    Many people cannot distinguish between watersheds and rivers. They still think that the watershed is an area near the river. Even though the watershed coverage is not that narrow. In managing a watershed, it requires a deep understanding of the watershed itself. The definition of DAS based on the function of a watershed is divided into several obstacles, firstly the upstream watershed is based on a conservation function which is managed to maintain the environmental conditions of the watershed so as not to experience degradation. The conservation function can be seen from the condition of watershed vegetation cover, water quality, ability to store water (discharge) and rainfall. Second, the middle…

    Coastal tourism ; Depok Beach

    Depok Beach is located in Bantul, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The landscape type of the Beach is marine (coastal). Generally, coastal morphology consists of bays, berms, crest berms, and beach scarp. The coastal region is included in marine deposition with its material in the form of sand called shoreline. The sand in the beach area is black because it is sand carried from Mount Merapi, so the Depok coastal area is an ecological unit with the Merapi mountains. Sand types on shoreline are softer than other beaches because of the effect of the sorting process. The lithology composing the coastal area on Depok Beach is dominated by medium sized sand deposits and well-sorted. These loose deposits are composed of volcanic lytic (andesite and tuff sandstone). The character of the waves on the shoreline is plugged into large waves due to the speed of the wind that blows big. The study states that in August-September, wind speeds range from 3.33-10,094 m / sec with directions that change…

    Irrigation Principle

    Many think that irrigation is a new discovery in human civilization. Not many people know that irrigation is a cultural heritage that has long been practiced and practiced in civilizations thousands of years ago. Irrigation has been practiced by humans for thousands of years by taking water from available water sources such as groundwater or rivers and then transporting it to land which requires additional water. Collection, transportation and addition of water are carried out in different ways, depending on the level of progress and mastery of technology and local culture. The technology applied in irrigation activities can be in the form of very simple and local technology, to high…

    Modernization Of Irrigation

    There is no direct irrigation from nature but all are man-made. All processes that occur in irrigation will all become a hydrological cycle because not all irrigation water enters the ground but some will be evaporated into the air. One of the functions of irrigation for agriculture is to supply crop water needs and ensure water availability in the event of drought. This is closely related to the purpose of irrigation, which is to increase agricultural production. Today, the development of irrigation systems in several countries has brought irrigation to the era of modernization. Modernization of irrigation systems is realized through the five pillars which will be briefly explained below.…

    Sweden Coastal

    Sweden is a unitary state with a decentralized government. To carry out the management of his country, Sweden has three governments, namely central, provincial (LAN), and city (community). In general, Sweden adheres to the principle of regional autonomy so that it gives broad authority to local governments to make policies and carry out their governance independently. The majority of Sweden’s population, 82% or around 7.9 million people live in coastal areas. Cities in Sweden, including the three most populous cities – Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo – are coastal cities so that the socio-economic conditions of Swedish coastal communities are generally characterized by high per capita income with a low Gini…

    The Coastal Planners Do

    Have you ever thought about working as a coastal planner? How do you solve problems in your work area? When in a work area experiencing coastal erosion with the state of the affected area including tourism and settlement areas that have been installed a series of groynes, then there is a river adjacent to the settlement and where there has been a dock, then things will be done first as a Coastal planners first analyze the causes of coastal erosion in the region. By knowing the cause of erosion, overcoming these problems will be more appropriate and more effective. The erosion causes physical damage to coastlines. Conditions of physical damage…

    Water Conservation in Agriculture

    Today, many environmental activists are shouting about conservation. One of the touted conservation is water conservation. What exactly is water conservation and how is it technical? A brief review below will explain a little about water conservation in agriculture. In principle, water conservation is the use of water that falls to the ground as efficiently as possible and with the right flow time, so that there is no destructive flood in the rainy season and there is enough water in the dry season. Water conservation can be done by increasing the utilization of two hydrological components, namely surface water and ground water, and increasing the efficiency of irrigation water use.…
