Hydro-geomorphic effects of subsidence, sedimentation and sea-level rises

Ruang Serbaguna (Floor 4)
Most of the world’s population lives within 100 km of the coastline, including the population of Southeast Asia. Those numbers are growing, so that land use is also changing year by year. Therefore, the anthropogenic stressors in coastal regions are expected to further degrade the coastal environments. In terms of hydrogeomorphology, these changes will potentially increase subsidence and saltwater intrusion. In addition, sea-level rises caused by global warming will make coastal communities more vulnerable. Potential discussion topics:
  • Development of waterfront cities and urban communities under hazardous coastal conditions
  • Land subsidence and saltwater intrusion effects on land building
  • Climate change adaptation
