Abstract: The impact of the mudflow disaster in Sidoarjo, Indonesia, which is still being felt by the community since 2006 until now, sets a background against which this review of disaster mitigation efforts that have been carried out so far is conducted. This ...

Evaluation of Shannon Entropy and Weights of Evidence Models in Landslide Susceptibility Mapping for the Pithoragarh District of Uttarakhand State, India.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Advances in Civil Engineering. 4/12/2022, p1-16. 16p.

Abstract: Landslide susceptibility mapping is considered a useful tool for planning, disaster management, and natural hazard mitigation of a region. Although there are different methods for predicting landslide susceptibility, the bivariate statistical analysis ...

Analysis of the calculation of the nearest tectonic earthquake to Selong City and its distribution type (Case study of the 2018 tectonic earthquake on Lombok Island and surrounding areas).

Publication Type: Conference

Source(s): AIP Conference Proceedings. 2023, Vol. 2588 Issue 1, p1-7. 7p.

Abstract: Indonesia is a country that is often hit by tectonic earthquakes. This is because Indonesia is located at the confluence of three of the world's significant plates. One of the areas in Indonesia that were hit by a tectonic earthquake is the island of L...
