Walkable cities emphasize cities with high walkability values, where walkability can be defined as the degree to which the environment can be pedestrian friendly. Walkable city is considered to be able to increase people's desire to walk so that it can make the environment more humanistic and can also help realize one of the objectives of sustainable transportation. The value of walkability can be viewed from the perspective of the urban form (macro level) of an area. The Central Business District (CBD) Pekanbaru City walkability index assessment uses the WAI IPEN Project model that measures the form of the Urban Form. The walkability assessment process in the Pekanbaru Kota Sub-District Area (CBD) divides the study area into 6 grids. The analysis shows that there are 4 grids that have a negative walkability value. In the analysis of the walkability value pattern it can be seen that the area dominated by office activities has a lower walkability value compared to the area that has mixed land use.

Groundwater is water resource that widely used for domestic purposes, including for drinking. However, the industrial and population growth causes the quality and quantity of groundwater to decline. In this case, the quality of drinking water in Indonesia must meet the requirements according to Health Minister Regulation No.492/MENKES/PER/IV/2010. This study aims are to determine the quality of groundwater in the research area based on physicochemical parameters and its evaluation for drinking water. Groundwater samples were taken from dug wells in Teluk Nilap area, Rokan Hilir, Riau. Groundwater samples have temperature average 30oC, TDS average 312,5 mg/L and pH average 5,6. Groundwater contain sulfate and nitrate with average value 48,8 mg/L and 11,86 mg/L, respectively. Groundwater water also have iron and lead metal above the permitted standard with average value 2,57 mg/L and 0,022 mg/L. Groundwater in the study is not recommended as drinking water.

The increasing trend of global temperature is related to the land use change in the form of urbanization. The impact of land use change to surface air temperature in Indonesia especially in smaller scope in Indonesia have not researched yet. The study area is located on newly built campus and the development of land use change inside campus can be managed carefully. This research aim is to determine which land use affecting high-temperature by using multiple linear regression method with least square approach so that temperature increase can be controlled in which some land uses must be preserved in urbanization. Land use data is interpreted from the photo map of 275 hectare campus. Temperature data is measured by using the digital thermometer three times a day. The method idea is to obtain distinctive contribution of every land use to every temperature measurement point. The contribution follows the inverse distance weighted concept. Surface air temperature measurement points are located with 150 meter interval and centroids of land use polygons are used for association calculation. Temperature measurement shows values between 25.5oC and 35.4oC. Land use with more anthropogenic activities and rubber plantation are the top contributors to high surface air temperature within a day. In the non-built-up land use category, water body increases the temperature in the daytime. Anthropogenic activities and vegetation density within land use is the main factor in increasing the surface air temperature so that it is suggested to plant farm-like vegetation around every built-up land use.

Shoreline shift have occurred in the Coastal region of Makassar City in recent years due to abrasion and accretion. Spatial temporal feature extraction of the Makassar City Region has been carried out using remote sensing techniques withRadiometri, Geometric Corrections and Composite Imagein the Landsat image dataset in 2009 and 2019. This study aims to analyze shoreline shift near Makassar City with remote sensing technology using Landsat imagery data, based on multi-temporal data with visual and digital analysis techniques between 2009 and 2019. This research contributes to local and central government as baseline data (data base) in making decisions for handling coastal areas. The results showed that the length of the Makassar City coastline without including the coastline length of the islands separated from land in a row that is equal to 37.79 km in 2009. While in 2019 there was a significant change that is 49.82 km. This shows the addition of a coastline of 12.03 km in the span of 10 years. These changes are mainly caused by anthropogenic factors, namely the construction of the pier / port and the reclamation and hydro-oceanographic factors, namely waves, currents and tides.

The research area is located in Asera District, North Konawe Regency, Southeast Sulawesi Province which has ultramafic rock lithology. The purpose of this study is to determine the characteristics of ultramafic igneous rocks using petrographic and geochemical analysis. Petrographic analysis aims to determine the types and abundance of minerals present so that rock types can be determined based on the classification of Travis (1955) and Streckeisen (1976). The geochemical analysis aims to determine the oxide/major element so that it can determine the type of magma based on the AFM classification according to Irvine and Baragar (1971) and the origin of the magma / original rock formation environment based on Pearce (1977). Petrographic analysis results showed that ultramafic rocks in the study area consisted of 2 types of rocks namely peridotite consisting of wherlit and lherzoite and serpentinite. The results of geochemical analysis indicate that the type of magma in the study area is thoellitic series and the origin of the magma/rock formation environment comes from the expansion of the oceanic floor or mid oceanig ridge (MOR) which is ultramafic.

The subsurface geological conditions of a geothermal system are vital objects to be considered in geothermal exploration. The Magnetotellurics survey was conducted to explore for geothermal potential in Pantar Island. This is to achieve deeper penetration compared to our previous study that adopted resistivity method to determine reservoir zones based on rock resistivity models. The difference in rock resistivity in geothermal systems provides subsurface geological information in the form of low resistivity that associated the clay cap zones (high conductive), the medium resistivity zones associated with the reservoir zones, and high resistivity associated with a heat source. The results of 2D and 3D models from MT data show that the low resistivity value ( 200 Ωm) starting from depths of -2000 meters are considered as heat source from the Pantar geothermal system.

The frequency of landslides and the fact that a large number of people live in the landslides-prone areas lead to a high death toll in Java Island, Indonesia – over 1,112 people in the period between 1999 and 2005. Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency (Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana [BNPB]) reported 2,766 landslides that occurred in Java from 2014 to 2019, with 662 deaths. From its state, it looks as if Indonesia 's disaster mitigation is still weak. It is very essential to a deep understanding of landslides disaster mitigation weakness in Indonesia with the approach of governments, researchers, and local communities action. This research is a review of landslides disaster mitigation in Java Island with the approach of governments, researchers, and local communities action. Furthermore, the purpose of this study is to highlight the driving forces of landslides disaster mitigation in Java Island, Indonesia. From the assessment of each stakeholder (government, researchers, and local communities), the driving forces of landslides disaster mitigation in Java Island are the central government has commanding disaster management activities to local governments. However, the implementation of landslides disaster mitigation at the regional level has some obstacles such as the lack of residential development planning.Many landslide research results have only become scientific papers but the landslides-prone areas have not been fully paid attention by the local government such as the absence of landslide danger warning signs.In addition, the level of preparedness and awareness among local communities is not constant at any given time. Usually, community preparedness levels can be high following a disaster. It is likely, however, to diminish over time.

Northwest Java Basin (NWJB) is one of the proven hydrocarbon basins in Indonesia. The scope of this paper will focus onthe shales and sandstone interval within Y1 well in Karawang area, NWJB, Indonesia.A cored interval from Y1 well was chosen for an investigation of the clay minerology for the gamma-ray activity and with the purpose of determining how the Spectral Natural Gamma (SNG) log could be used as an indicator of source rock and reservoir quality. The Th/U as a redox indicator is used to assert that the shales are of anoxic conditions of shallow marine environments. Despite the relatively high insoluble Th values (60-74.15) ppm, the presence of U in substantial amounts, which only occurs in reducing conditions where it is preserved as a lower insoluble valence (U4+) explains for the low Th/U values ranging between (5.8-7.1) ppm/ppm. The overall Th/U value of the evaluated shales remain less than 25, where Th/U

Bintan Island is a part of Riau Islands Province. On this island, the capital city is Tanjungpinang. The compliance of public facilities such as landfill waste is a priority in this city. Landfill design that suitable in this area is a sanitary landfill system. The soil layer uses to cover the waste in this landfill system. The closure did gradually avoid the disruption of waste processing. The type of soil for its landfill cover has to be able to control the leachate. It controlled by the permeability of the soil. The methods used in this study are the analysis of the physical and mechanical properties of soil. Rock and soil samples are obtained systematically through trenching. Sampling-based on changes in physical properties of soil that reflect its mechanical properties. A probabilistic approach used to solve the problems and to get accurate results. The geomorphology of the study area divided into four units. They are very flat terrain, flat terrain, slightly steep hills, and steep hills. The sample used for the study is undisturbed soil. Analysis of the physical and mechanical properties of soil shows the types of soil, such as SW, GM, MH-OH, and CH. However, MH is the most dominant type of soil. Each of the soil types represents a certain degree of weathering. The degree of weathering in the study area varies from the III degree to VI degrees. Rocks are weathering form clay mineral, which compiles the soil. Clay mineral in the soil layer is varied from quartz, illite, kaolinite, gibbsite, goethite, and hematite—the impact of the swelling of clay. The swelling of clay in the study area ranged from low to high. The properties and composition of the soil are affected by the permeability value.

Pekanbaru is a city in Indonesia with high population growth. The increasing amount of the population has a parallel relationship with the increasing quantity of waste disposal. This study has been conducted on an open dumping landfill at Pekanbaru that surrounded by residential areas. Waste disposal produces leachate as a threat to surface water and groundwater resources. This study aims to investigate the contamination spread formed by leachate using the geophysical method. Direct Current Resistivity (DCR) has been used to produce 2 D Resistivity subsurface Models. Data acquisition has been done using multi-electrodes (32 electrodes) with spacing 2 m between electrodes. 2D Resistivity model produced, a contaminant from leachate represented by low resistivity value 26.1 - 870 Ωm. The deepest penetration of leachate that detected is around 3 m from the surface. It has been understood that leachate from the landfill of the study area is not contaminated groundwater yet. It confirmed by groundwater analysis at residential around the landfill area. By knowing the spreading of leachate, preventive action can be made to maintain the quality of groundwater resources.
