Sediment Trap – Kepulauan Seribu

This research is a collaboration between our company and Creocean (French company).


  • Sedimentation and suspended sediment are generally recognized as important factors that can negatively affect coral health (Ogston, A. S. et al 2004).
  • Kepulauan Seribu is an ecotourism site, which also known as an excellent field laboratory to demonstrate comparisons between living Holocene reef systems and Tertiary reef facies which host a major portion of Indonesia’s hydrocarbon reserves (Junior, C. F. J. 1998).


  • To assess the reliability of sediment trap in measuring sediment flux.
  • To measure and quantify sinking sediment flux in selected underwater sites around Panggang District, Kepulauan Seribu.

To provide baseline information of sinking rate estimation in Panggang District, Kepulauan Seribu.
