Landslide Susceptibility in Majalengka Regency, West Java Province

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Majalengka is one of districts in Indonesia which is susceptible to landslides. Landslides in Majalengka caused enormous losses such as damage to infrastructure, loss of property, and even human fatalities. Seeing of the impact, mitigation efforts are needed to reduce risks and losses by making landslide susceptibility maps. This study aims to map areas landslide susceptibility and as a reference for the government and related agencies to reduce losses. The method used overlay using Spatial Multi-Criteria Evaluation (SMCE), using weighting values from the Minister Public Works Regulation NO.22/PRT/M/2007, Puslittanak Bogor (2014) and Directorate Volcanology and Disaster Mitigation (DVMBG) (2004). Then comparison of these sources is carried out to determine weighting value with the highest accuracy. The variables are slope, rainfall, soil type, lithology, and land use. The results of this study indicate that landslide susceptibility areas are divided into non-susceptible, low, moderate, and high areas. Where areas Majalengka Regency is dominated by moderate susceptibility level. For the accuracy value of the landslide susceptibility map produced by the weighted value source from the Minister of Public Works Regulation NO.22/PRT/M/2007 has the highest accuracy value of 76%. For weighting from the Bogor Puslittanak is 73%, while weighting source from DVMBG is 68%.
