2018 : THE USE OF SENTINEL-2 IMAGERY FOR TOTAL SUSPENDED SOLIDS (TSS) ESTIMATION IN PORONG RIVER, SIDOARJO

Dr.Ir. Teguh Hariyanto M.Sc


Abstract

Sidoarjo mud disaster is an occurrence of hot mud bursts at drilling location of Lapindo Brantas Inc., Sidoarjo, Indonesia since 29th May 2006. In order to overcome the continuous mud flow, Indonesian government built embankment around the center of the mudflow. They also throw mud materials into the Porong River. The large and continuous disposal of mud material leads to sedimentation in Porong River. Remote sensing method with satellite imagery can be a solution to find out how much sedimentation occurred in Porong River as a result of mud’s disposal. Total Suspended Solid (TSS) calculation from satellite image can be indicator of sedimentation distribution.
