    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…

    Mahakam Estuary

    The event in the picture above is a process that occurred at the Sub Aerial Deposition Coast, which is the process of forming a delta. Delta is a fluviomarin geomorphological phenomenon in the form of deposition of terrestrial sediment material that is transported by streams and deposited along river mouths that enter lakes or the sea. Delta occurs when the flow velocity in the estuary is minimal, the amount of material transported is large but not disturbed by wave activity, the water in the estuary is calm and the river bed is sloping, and there is also no tectonic and volcanic disturbance.  Delta forming factors include the characteristics of the…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Sand Dunes

    In coastal areas besides dynamics that occur, there are also natural processes that can actually be utilized by the surrounding population. One of them is sand dune. Sand dune is a natural laboratory in the form of sand dunes formed by the wind carrying sand. Not all coastal areas have this natural laboratory, one of the beaches that has is Parangtritis beach, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The process of formation begins with sand spewed by Merapi volcano when it erupts which then settles. After being deposited on the shore a very strong wind from the Indian Ocean distributes this sand back to the north. Then formed a natural embankment which we know…

    Coastal Complexity in The Big City

    Have you ever enjoyed relaxing on the beach around which there are high-rise buildings, a symbol of the big city?  What do you think about the coastal areas in the region? Many people argue that the coastal area in a big city is an advantage and its own attraction for the city. But of course, coastal areas in big cities carry their own complexity. As a transition zone between land and sea, the coast is an area that has significance for human life. Beach configuration can be caused by natural or non-natural activities or processes (human activities) originating from land or from the sea. Activities that take place at sea…
