Survey Rote Island on August 26 – September 1, 2018

September 13, 2018

On August 26 – September 1, 2018, we conducted survey at Rote island. This activities as part of the project with topic: Research study on Integration System Development Through a Multidisciplinary Approach for Mapping Natural Resources and the Environment; case study: technology and content at Inland water resources for geospatial and remote sensing data.

It is located in the west coast of Kupang. This exotic island can be reached only in half an hours from Kupang by airplane. The unique combination of geologic activities, rock formation and many other variables resulted in condition as a saltwater lake.  Our team member consist of LAPAN (leader of this project), LIPI, KLHK, PUPERA and UGM.

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.

27 Maret 2018

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.
