Cimandiri Fault is one of the faults that have high tectonic activity. Several earthquake events around the Cimandiri Fault have caused impacts and losses on humans. Efforts to detect earthquake events need to be done as disaster mitigation. Detection of earthquake events in this study by looking at deviations in surface temperature. This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between changes in land surface temperature (LST) in relation to the earthquake that occurred on 7 July 2018 (ML = 4.73) and 11 October 2018 (ML = 3.77). Landsat 8 satellite imagery are used in this study to get the value of the land surface temperature using the LST algorithm. To find out the deviation that occurred researchers used a statistical test x ± σ with a 66% confidence level and compared with the average LST for five years. The results of the study are an increase in land surface temperature due to the earthquake occurrence on July 7, 2011, an increase in surface temperature of land was 6.56 oC on the day before the earthquake, and October 11, 2011, there was an increase of 7.02°C the day before the earthquake.
