Comprehensive information in natural disaster area is essential to prevent and mitigate people from further damage that might occur before and after such event. Mapping this area is one way to comprehend the situation when disaster strikes. Remote sensing data have been widely used along with GIS to create a susceptibility map. The objective of this study was to develop existing landslides susceptibility map by integrating optical satellite images of Landsat ETM and ASTER with Japanese Earth Resource Satellites (JERS-1) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data complemented by ground GPS and feature measurement into a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) platform. The study area was focused on a landslide event occurred on 26 March 2004 in Jeneberang Watershed of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Change detection analysis was used to extract thematic information and the technique of Differential SAR Interferometry (DInSAR) was employed to detect slight surface displacement before the landslide event. The DInSAR processed images would be used to add as one weighted analysis factor in creating landslide susceptibility map. The result indicated that there was a slight movement of the slope prior to the event of landslide during the JERS-1 SAR data acquisition period of 1993-1998.

Introduction Recently, natural disasters increased in terms of frequency, complexity, scope, and destructive capacity. They have been particularly severe during the last few years when the world has experienced several large-scale natural disasters such as the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami; floods and forest fires in Europe, India and China, and drought in Africa (Sassa, 2005). Mapping such natural disaster areas is essential to prevent and mitigate people from further damage that might occur before and after such event. In Indonesia in particular, in these recent years natural disasters occurred more frequently compared to the last decade (BNPB, 2008). Once within a month in 2011, in three different islands, Indonesia was stricken by earthquake, tsunami, flash floods, and volcanic eruptions with severe fatalities to the people and environment. It was obvious that Indonesia was prone to natural disaster due to its position of being squeezed geologically by three major world plates and this fact makes Indonesia one of the most dangerous

Sand is a material needed for various purposes such as construction materials and backfill materials so that the need for sand continues to increase. The economic potential in the form of increasing sand demand has triggered increased sand mining activities in the Sadang River in Pinrang Regency. The research took place between September and November 2019 which aimed to determine the economic potential and hydrological benefits of the Sadang River sand mining in Pinrang Regency. The research area covers three districts included in the Sadang River sand mining area of Pinrang Regency namely Patampanua, Duampanua and Cempa Districts. A field survey was conducted to find out the amount of production volume, production costs, mining and transportation activities. The results showed that the Sadang River sand mining has considerable economic potential. In addition to direct economic benefits, it also provides indirect economic benefits for the community around the mining area. If the river sand mining has been deemed damaging to the environment and disrupting the function of the river, then the passive river of Sadang River shows the opposite fact, namely that the Sadang River sand mining can help restore the hydrological function of the Sadang River to prevent siltation of the Sadang River due to sedimentation so as not to cause overflow and floods that can damage residents' settlements and agricultural land in three districts.
