Workshop on Development and Use of a Knowledgebase System for ILBM Research

July 11, 2018

WORKSHOP ILBM & LAKES3

Research Centre for Limnology – LIPI (RCL-LIPI) held a workshop on Development and Use of Knowledgebase System for IBLM Research on July 9 – 11, 2018 at RCL-LIPI. This event is a collaboration between International Lake Environment Committee (ILEC) and RCL-LIPI, attended by researchers from RCL-LIPI and Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF)

At the opening of the workshop, Director of Research Center Limnology – LIPI, Dr. Fauzan Ali stated that the workshop is held as a commitment of RCL – LIPI cooperation with ILEC.  In 2016, RCL-LIPI and ILEC with other Indonesian Government Institute have organized WLC (World Lakes Conference) in Bali.
This workshop entitled Integrated Lake Basin Management and LAKES3 database is important for researchers, especially Southeast Asian Limnological Network (SEAL Net) member where RCL-LIPI was acted as secretariat SealNet.  It also responds to the lake problems in ASEAN and the problems of the lake in Indonesia in cooperation with MOEF.  Moreover, Prof. Masahisa Nakamura said that ILEC has cooperated with various universities and institutions in Asia related to the lake.

In this workshop, the participants got material about Integrated Lake Basin Management (ILBM) and Learning Acceleration and Knowledge Enhancement System (LAKES) delivered by Prof. Masahisa Nakamura and Kiyoko Takemoto.

Survey lapangan ke Danau Kasumigaura dengan menggunakan perahu motor, keliling meninjau kondisi Danau Kasumigaura.  Siangnya, kunjungan ke Kasumigaura Environmental Science Center.  Melihat dari dekat fasilitas laboratorium analisa kualitas air, perpustakaan dan ruang pameran dan edukasi untuk masyarakat sekitar danau.

Khusus untuk ruang pameran, tersedia fasilitas untuk masyarakat umum mengenal lebih dekat tentang Danaunya, permasalahan dan usaha pengelolaannya.  Sehingga partisipasi aktif dari masyarakat sangat berperan penting dalam menjaga kelestarian danau.

 

28 Maret 2018

Diskusi di University of Tsukuba (Advanced Research Laboratory A-501)

Ada 2 bahasan:

  1. Pemasangan dan penambahan sensor DO di Danau Maninjau.  Diharapkan monitoring ini akan terus berlanjut dan bisa membantu dalam kajian kualitas air danau Maninjau.
  2. Konsep sister lake.  Ke depan diharapkan adanya kerja sama antara pemda di Indonesia yang memiliki danau dengan Pemda Ibaraki (sebagai otoritas dari Kasumigaura Environmental Science Center). Untuk Saat ini, Pemda Ibaraki sedang menyiapkan ajang World Lake Conference (WLC) ke-17 yang akan diadakan bulan Oktober 2018.


KOLABORASI ANTAR PUSAT PENELITIAN LIMNOLOGI – LIPI, UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA (USM) DAN SEALNET DALAM KONFERENSI INTERNASONAL TENTANG EKOLOGI DAN BIODIVERSITAS PADA BULAN AGUSTUS 2018

April 13, 2018

Sebagai salah satu hasil dari pertemuan World Lake Conference (WLC) di Bali bulan November 2016, telah disepakati membangun jaringan kerja sama antar peneliti di kawasan ASEAN, khususnya bidang limnologi melalui SealNet (Southeast Asian Limnological Network).  Tujuannya untuk mendorong kajian bersama, khususnya perairan darat tropis yang kaya keanekaragaman dan keunikannya, berbeda dengan wilayah sub-tropis.  Puslit Limnologi sebagai salah satu panitia WLC 2016, diminta menjadi sekretariat SealNet dalam menjalankan kegiatan organisasi tersebut

Salah satu kegiatan yang akan diselenggarakan adalah Konferensi Internasional tentang ekologi dan biodiversitas di Penag, Malaysia.  Pihak USM sebagai panitia dan Puslit Limnologi LIPI sebagai co-organizer dengan dibantu anggota SealNet lainnya.  Selain konferensi dan pelatihan, juga akan ada pertemuan SealNet pertama untuk membahas program-program ke depan yang berpotensi bisa dilaksanakan.  Harapannya, dengan pertemuan ini, dapat dilakukan komunikasi dan berbagi pengalaman antar negara-negara ASEAN dalam pengelolaan perairan darat.

Selain itu, makalah terpilih dan disajikan dalam konferensi akan diterbitkan dalam IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Sciences, yang diindeks Scopus, serta EI Compendex dan Inspec.

Untuk keterangan lebih lengkapnya tentang kegiatan ini, bisa dilihat dalam https://usmicebats2018.wixsite.com/icebats2018 atau brosur di bawah ini.

 

COLLABORATION AMONG RESEARCH CENTRE FOR LIMNOLOGY – LIPI, UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA (USM) AND SEALNET IN THE FRAMEWORK OF INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ECOLOGY AND BIODIVERSITY IN AUGUST 2018

As one of the outcomes of the World Lake Conference (WLC) – Bali in November 2016, it was agreed to build a network of collaborators among researchers in the ASEAN region, particularly in the limnology field through SealNet (Southeast Asian Limnological Network).  The goal is to encourage joint study, particularly the tropical inland waters which rich in biodiversity and uniqueness, different character to the sub-tropical regions.  Research Centre for Limnology – LIPI as one of the WLC Bali 2016 committees, was asked to be the secretariat of SealNet in organizing the Sealnet’s activities.

One of the activities to be held this year is the International Conference on ecology and biodiversity in Penang, Malaysia.  USM as a committee and Research Centre for Limnology – LIPI as a co-organizer with the support of other members of SealNet.  In addition, besides the programs in this conference (seminar, discussion and and training), there will also be the first SealNet meetings to leverage future programs that could potentially be implemented.  The objective of this meeting, communication and sharing experiences among ASEAN countries in the management of inland waters could be conducted.

In addition, Selected papers and presented in coference will be published in IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Sciences, a publication that is indexed in Scopus, as well as EI Compendex and Inspec.

LIPI – KOREA Collaboration Introduces Innovation on Rainfall Observation Using Dual Polarization Technology

April 3, 2018

Indonesia and Korea encounter similar problems when it comes to dealing with the risk of climate change which also implements in the change of rain pattern. The consequences of heavy rainfall can be the occurrence of erosion, landslides (mainly at slopes and hills) and flood. Conventional method by using rain gauge has disadvantages chiefly when measuring spatial distribution of the rainfall is accurately needed. In addition, conventional rain gauge has limited capability to observe the rainfall due its small size. Spatial distribution of rainfall is important to provide a more accurate forecast of the risk of flood and erosion.

A Korean team consisting of multi institutions (KICT (Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology), JCOMS Co. Ltd., SELAB, Kyungpook National University and Chonnam National University) visits Indonesia to have bi-national seminar (Korea and Indonesia) and to test out the performance of EWRG (Electromagnetic Wave Rain Gauge). This device is used for rainfall observation using dual polarization technology. The seminar was carried out at Research Center for Limnology LIPI in the last week of March 2018. The representatives from Korea (Dr. Sanghoon Lim, Dr. Jungho Choi, Prof. Gyuwon Lee, Dr. Chanjoo Lee, Hoon Choi, M.Ed), Dr. Iwan Ridwansyah (RC Limnology LIPI) and Dr. Indra Gustari (BMKG) presented the research development on rainfall observations in Korea and Indonesia, respectively.

For nearly two weeks (the end of March until the beginning of April), the Korean team has been doing performance tests of EWRG at Bukit Paralayang (Paragliding site), Cisarua. This field activity is supported by Research Center for Limnology LIPI which delegates two representatives Dr. Luki Subehi and Miratul Maghfiroh, M.Sc. as field coordinators.

Director of Research Center for Limnology, Dr. Fauzan Ali, cordially welcomes the Korean team and hopes that this activity will lead to a joint research that benefits between two countries. In regard to this, Dr. Won Kim (project Director from KICT) appreciates all individuals and LIPI for its support during the activities. This collaboration is supposed to be carried on in the coming years.
