2011 : PHYTOTECHNOLOGY INSIGHT FOR THE FLOOD PLAINS ALONG THE RIVER AND RIPARIAN ZONE

Prof. Dr. Ir. Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo MScES


Abstract

The case study was presented with the purpose of obtaining quantitative landscape span along the river and riparian zone. Field observations carried out in many places in Indonesia and also studied the experiences of some countries, all of which were intended to avoid similar mistakes in the future. Approach on spans establishment of riparian areas was in perspective phytotechnology for environmental protection. River water quality and riverbanks stability were discussed. The general picture riparian span was 100m, 10 times the maximum depth of the river, 44m for every 1m overflow river. The riparian span need to be corrected by taking into account the local topographic slope of landscape.
