Coastal Engineering

General Information

General Information

Ocean covers about three quarters, or 5,800,000 km2, of Indonesia. With 17,506 islands and 81,000 km coastline, it has great potentials and challenge. These potentials include continuities of fishery resources, sea biota, tourism, oil and gas field, ocean energy, sea services, maritime industry, brackish water cultivation. The challenges in this area relate to the position of Indonesia on the crossing of three tectonic plates that makes it vulnerable to natural disasters such as earthquake and tsunami.
