Survey at Lake Temengor – Malaysia

February 23, 2014

The end of January 2014, team of Limnology LIPI (Luki Subehi, Hendro Wibowo and Iwan Ridwansyah) was invited by Prof. Mashhor (Univerisiti Sains Malaysia) for visiting lake Temengor – Malaysia (analysis sedimentation and bathymetric mapping).

We were supported by Prof. Mashhor’s students in the field.  We also took sample on 5 station sampling.  In the future, in order to realize collaboration, we will cooperate to conduct the research on both sides (Malaysian and Indonesian lakes).  Malaysia team will visit the Lake Maninjau and Lake Singkarak.  On the other hand, team of Limnology LIPI has a plan to investigate the cascade lakes at Malaysia, including lake Temengor.

Smart Tunnel

October 9, 2013

Bogor, GATRAnews – Apa kabar rencana pembuatan terowongan pintar Jakarta? Ternyata ada ide lain dari Profesor Hidrologi Institut Pertanian Bogor Hidayat Pawita untuk menampung limpahan air di kala banjir. Memanfaatkan ratusan tempat parkir bawah tanah.Menurut Prof Hidayat, tempat parkir  bawah tanah di pusat-pusat perbelanjaan dan kantor pemerintahan dapat dimanfaatkan sebagai retensi banjir di wilayah Jakarta seperti “smart tunnel” (terowongan pintar) yang diwacanakan Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta. “Jakarta bisa mengadopsi penanganan banjir seperti di Jepang, areal parkiran bawah tanah,” kata Guru Besar Hidrologi Sumber Daya Air, Departemen Geofisika dan Meteorologi, FMIPA IPB, itu  kepada wartawan di Kampus IPB Baranangsiang, Kota Bogor, Jawa Barat, Senin.

Menurut Prof Hidayat, di Jakarta banyak kapasitas retensi banjir yang tidak dioptimalkan.  “Di Jakarta itu ada ratusan gedung parkir bawah tanah baik itu milik pemerintah maupun milik swasta,” katanya.  Prof Hidayat menyebutkan, pemanfaatan areal pakir bawah tanah tersebut harus dilengkapi oleh sistem peringatan dini.
“Jadi pada saat banjir datang, kendaraan yang ada di parkiran bisa keluar dari basement, dan parkiran bisa dimaafkan untuk retensi air banjir, air yang masuk nantinya dialirkan ke saluran pembuangan,” katanya.  Menurut Prof Hidayat, cara ini telah diterapkan oleh negara Jepang. Begitu juga dengan Malaysia yang mencotoh “smart tunnel”.   “Tapi kita tidak perlu ‘smart tunnel’ karena itu hanya untuk banjir kiriman. Optimalnya kita menggunakan ruang terbuka biru dan ruang terbuka hijau,” ujarnya. (Dh)

Annual Scientific Meeting MLI 2013

September 8, 2013

Topic : Limnological progress in supporting sustainable development in Indonesia : Challenge and Expectation


  1. To globally discuss Indonesia’s recent research topics of limnology.
  2. The scientific medium to exchange latest knowledge in limnology with researchers/colleagues at any stages, policy makers, community, and stakeholders having common interest upon Indonesia lake’s condition.
  3. To generate conceptual model and recommendations on holistically sustainable management of national priority’s designated lakes on the basis of limnology approach.

Keynote Speakers

  1. Prof. Dr. Gadis Sri Haryani (Puslit Limnologi-LIPI)
  2. Dr. Osamu Kozan  (CSEAS-Kyoto University)
  3. Dr. Adelina C. Santos-Borja (General manajer Laguna Lake Development Authority ILEC Committee)


Seminar Scope and Topic

Seminar is open for lecturers, students, researchers, policy makers and those who concern with inland water ecosystems (lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and estuarine).  Seminar would likely be discussing researches pertaining to issues on the current condition of inland waters in Indonesia that could be used as references on Indonesian inland water management.  The topics that will be raised as a discussion in the seminar :

  1. Functional biodiversity
  2. Lake ecology and catchment area
  3. Restoration and lake conservation
  4. Sustainable management of fisheries
  5. Mitigation against lake desolation/disaster
  6. Social and Institutional aspect
  7. Public policies related to efforts for lake conservation

IFAS 2013

January 11, 2013

The countries in Asia and the Pacific region, with different climate characteristics are vulnerable to hydrological extremes and the global changes increase the uncertainty associated with extreme events. Some of these countries are vulnerable to floods and annual flood losses are too high for any government to bear. In the framework of the International Hydrological Programme focusing on the impacts of climatic variability and changes, the activity intends to strengthen, in the ASPAC Region, scientific approaches for improved water resources management policies and governance with reference to hydrological hazards and extreme events via specific efforts such as enhancing water related technical capacity-building and education at all levels, and supporting national and regional efforts to develop, integrate and complement capacities to reduce and address risks arising from land-based and freshwater natural disasters.

As a continuation of comprehensive study on Flood Forecasting and Warning System (FFWS) conducted in ten countries (Australia, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lao P.D.R, Malaysia, Philippines, Rep. of Korea, Thailand and Vietnam), the activity together with The UNESCO Category II Water Centre ICHARM (International Centre for Water Hazards Risk Management), will focus on the organization of country training courses on the Integrated Flood Analysis System (IFAS) and FFWS data interpretation and implementation in the region, draw the related conclusion and propose to government related agencies, through IHP National Committees, possible management guidelines to deal with FFWS. The activity is intended to focus on sharing knowledge/experience and improve capacity building by enhancing UNESCO-ICHARM collaboration through the training courses on Integrated Flood Analysis System.

APCE proposes to organize of training course on IFAS in Jakarta, Indonesia with the following venue:


Date    :           15 – 17 January 2013

Venue  :           Hotel Kartika Candra

Jl. Gatot Subroto, Jakarta – Indonesia
