Active Fault Analysis Through Quantitative Assessment Method in Cikapundung Sub Watershed

Authors(5) :-Nana Sulaksana, Supriyadi, Ismawan, Pradnya Paramarta Raditya Rendra, Murni Sulastri

Cikapundung sub-watershed is one of the sub-watersheds at the upper of the Citarum River adjacent to an active regional fault, Lembang Fault. Active fault is a major factor in landform control in area that affected by tectonic activity. Therefore, an approach to identify tectonic activity in the research area through quantitative analysis (morphometry) is required. The morphometric analysis used to identify Index of active tectonics (IAT) uses four parameters, namely: Asymmetry factor (Af), Ratio of valley width and valley height (Vf), Basin shape index (Bs), and Mountain front sinuosity (Smf). Based on the parameters of Index of active tectonics (IAT) , it can be concluded that 10 basins of the Cikapundung sub watershed has a class of low tectonic activity which may still be affected by the active Lembang fault. However, its existence should be noticed by the surrounding community and government, because the major earthquakes can occur anytime. In addition, the variation of Smf and Vf values caused by lithologic responses that are less resistant to weathering and erosion.
