Study of Flood Inundation due to Sea Level Rise in Pekalongan in Central Java


Year: 2012-2013
Country: Indonesia
Location within country: Pekalongan, Central Java

The objectives of this project were: 1) To derive flood inundation maps using MIKE-11 flood models, 2) To derive land subsidence maps using SAR interferometry technique. Tidal flood or ‘rob’ in in the coastal city of Pekalongan, Central Java are likely to be intensified in the future and this study will provide some indications to the city planners for taking mitigation measures. The MIKE-11 models were used to simulate and predict the flood inundation area.
