Abstract

Toponymy is the scientific study of geographical names. Island Toponym represents step of island identi- fication by identifying its name and geographic position. Island Identification in toponymy was conducted through desk study and field survey. Desk study was implemented to obtain earlier description of islands physical condition, social and culture of local people. Field survey to obtain names of the islands was carried out by interviewing local people and positions were measured by using a simple GPS system then validated using nautical chart Dishidros publications 1997 and Image from Google Earth in 2013. The Survey at Bulungan Regency of East Kalimantan Province, 19 islands had been identified 7 islands which have not been listed at DEPDAGRI (Ministry of Internal Affairs) in 2004 but the other 10 islands have been named, and 9 island which is not drawn yet in sea chart published by DISHIDROS TNI-AL.

Abstract

Global warming which leads to climate change has potential affect to Indonesia agriculture activities and production. Analyzing rainfall pattern and distribution is important to investigate the impact of global climate change to local climate. This study using rainfall data from 1976-2010 from both lowland and upland area of Lampung Province. The results show that rainfall tends to decrease since the 1990s which related to the years with El Nino event. Monsoonal pattern- having rain and dry season- still excist in Lampung; however, since most rain fell below the average, it could not meet crops water need. Farmers conclude that dry seasons were longer and seasonal pattern has been changed. Global climate change might affect Lampung rainfall distribution through changes on sea surface temperature which could intensify the El Nino effect. Therefore, watching the El Nino phenomena and how global warming affects it, is important in predicting local climate especially the rainfall distribution in order to prevent significant loss in agriculture productivities.

Abstract

In 2007, a series of landslides occurred at Tawangmangu, resulting in the collapse of several houses and the death of dozens of people. One essential pathway to reduce the vulnerability of communities goes through an increased preparedness. The present contribution aims to determine existing level of preparedness by analysing the people perception and knowledgeof landslides. Survey method with random sampling technique was applied to assess the level of people perception and to analysis local people knowledge regarding with landslide. The number of respondents was spread proportionally across five sub-villages; Plalar, Guyon, Sodong, Salere and Ngledoksari. The respondents were interviewed using questionnaires with open and closed questions. Statistical analysis with multiple linear regressions was applied to identify the influencing factors of local people perception related to landside. The result show that people in the area have good knowledge and perception about landslide. This condition is commonly influenced by age and education.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the Erosion hazard, to look for conservation of bio - mechanical techniques are appropriate . Research methods with overlies topographic maps, soil maps, land use maps, to obtain a Land Unit Map. Determined soil physical properties (texture, structure, permeability) and chemical properties of soil (soil organic matter), slope, slope length, broad of land unit, crops factor and value conservation factors that have been there for Land Unit. Each land unit is determined the amount of land erosion and erosion hazard level. Erosion hazard level is determined based on soil erosion, and soil depth. Erosion hazzard level is used to determine the bio-mechanical conservation, according Hardjowigeno and Sukmana (1995). The results showed that the highest erosion hazard level with an area of 12.947 ha is classified weight (Land unit 15A), and the classification of an area of 14.665 ha is clssified moderately (Land unit 6A). Soil conservation is done in areas with highest erosion hazard level by making individual terraces and “kerandang” planted as a cover crops.

Abstract

Fire is one of the hazards that may affect urban areas with high density settlements. Thus, research on fire mitigation is important to be conducted. This paper examines the behavior and preparedness of occupants in high density settlements towards fire risks in urban area. The case study is located at Kelurahan Sukahaji, Kecamatan Babakan Ciparay, Bandung that has very high density settlement as well as prone to fire hazards. This study assess 232 respondents in the study areas on information related to demography, understanding about fire, behavior and preparedness. The respondents understanding on the types of fire sources are still low. Similarly, the behavior related to the activites using fire are still dangerous because some activities are conducted with other activities which make people less aware of the fire hazards. Nevertheless, their knowledge on how to extinguish fires are quite good. This paper recommends more trainings on knowledge of fire source and behavior to be conducted to occupants living in high density settlements in order to reduce fire disaster risk.
