Applied Geomorphology for Identifying Landslide Prone Area in Brebes, Central Java, Indonesia

Nana Sulaksana, Pradnya Paramarta Raditya Rendra

Brebes regency in Central Java, Indonesia, is geographically prone to natural disaster. Almost every year landslide occurred in this area. The present research provides the preliminary information on various aspects of applied geomorphology, aiming to identify and analyze landslide evidences obtained in the field. Further, this research also aims to provide recommendation to resolve the landslide problem that occurred in research area. This research methodology relies on identification and interpretation of image or map and field observation to the research area directly. Interpretation of image or map is used to identify geomorphological aspects such as morphometry, morphography, and morphogenetic aspect. Field observation of this research focused on finding evidences of landslide occurrences. Based on applied geomorphology aspects such as morphometry, morphography, and morphogenetic aspects, the research area can be concluded as landslide prone area. Therefore, the landslide occurred many times caused the research area is not recommended to be built as residential area. There are several ways that can be done to avoid future landslide, the local residents should be concerned about their environment by seeking a good drainage system. People are also not allowed to damage the land and change land use carelessly. Further, the research area is fully recommended to be made as conservation forest area or agriculture cultivation area on small-medium scale.
