Abstract

Jakarta, as the capital city of Indonesia, is one of the most flooded areas in Indonesia. The floods occurred annually and heavy floods usually occurred once in a few years. This paper address the geographic distribution of floods and statistical analysis of the floods causes by using rain intensity, tidal height, elevation, and floods occurrence as the parameters. This research was conducted in Angke (Kapuk) and Penjaringan Districts, located in Northern Jakarta where the floods usually occur. The result shows that rainfall intensity, remaining water inundation from the previous flood, and land runoff coefficient as the key factors of flooding in these areas.
