Geospatial Assessment of Coseismic Landslides in Baturagung Area
Saputra, A.Sartohadi, J.Hadmoko, D. S.Gomez, C.
Java, the most densely populated island in Indonesia, is located on top of the most seismically active areas in Southeast Asia: the Sunda Megathrust. This area is frequently hit by...
Hydrodynamic versus GIS modelling for coastal flood vulnerability assessment: Which is better for guiding coastal management?
Seenath, A.Wilson, M.Miller, K.
Under climate change, sea-level rise and increasing storm surge intensity will increase the likelihood of floods for low-lying coastal areas. Therefore, Coastal Flood Vulnerability...

Geologic records of Holocene typhoon strikes on the Gulf of Thailand coast
Washover sedimentation resulting from modern typhoon strikes on the Gulf of Thailand coast forms anomalous sand layers in low-energy coastal environments including marshes, ponds a...
Investigation of high-seepage zones in slopes using the Groundwater Aeration Sound (GAS) survey technique in Thailand
Jotisankasa, A.Mahannopkul, K.Teerachaikulpanich, N.Miyashita, T.Tada, Y.
All too often in geotechnical works, slopes fail as a result of high seepage force arising from excessive rainfall or impoundment as well as poor compaction of fill material. One o...

Assessing the performance of regional landslide early warning models: the EDuMaP method
Calvello, M.Piciullo, L.
A schematic of the components of regional early warning systems for rainfall-induced landslides is herein proposed, based on a clear distinction between warning models and warning ...
Atmospheric resonant oscillations by the 2014 eruption of the Kelud volcano, Indonesia, observed with the ionospheric total electron contents and seismic signals
Nakashima, Y.Heki, K.Takeo, A.Cahyadi, M. N.Aditiya, A.Yoshizawa, K.
Acoustic waves from volcanic eruptions are often observed as infrasound in near fields. Part of them propagate upward and disturb the ionosphere, and can be observed with Total Ele...
