BMKG is preparing for a joint mission to explore earthquake zones


JAKARTA (ANTARA) – The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) has begun preparing missions to investigate seismic phenomena in Indonesia's megathrust zones, the agency's head, Dwikorita Karnawati, said on Sunday.

The expeditions will be conducted by BMKG and the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) for research and data collection.

Karnawati said the expeditions will explore all of Indonesia's megathrust zones: Sunda subduction, Banda subduction, Sulawesi subduction, Philippine Sea plate subduction, Maluku Sea plate subduction, and North Papua subduction.

“We have started preparing everything, including research, training and development centers, to create earthquake and tsunami models,” she said.

The expeditions will start in Batam, Riau Islands, and travel through several cities before arriving in Betong, North Sulawesi, on August 25, said Andrey Ramadani, head of general meteorology at BMKG.

The research will involve a series of long voyages using OceanX's OceanXplorer ship.

OceanX is a global marine exploration non-profit organization that collaborates with the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Investment to research the Indonesian seas.

The expeditions will not only investigate seismic phenomena, but will also monitor air-sea interaction in Indonesian waters.

The target areas are where these interactions influence weather and climate variability in Indonesia, such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) and the oceanic dipole in the Banda Sea.

BMKG considers this research exploration crucial because natural and sometimes cyclical changes in air and ocean circulation, volcanic eruptions, and other factors influence climate variability.

Moreover, only 19% of Indonesia's vast seas (more than 70% of the country's area) have been mapped, highlighting the need for exploration, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said at a recent coordination meeting.

“Preparations with OceanX have been completed. BMKG is also bringing equipment to measure relevant parameters and continues coordination, especially with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment as the leading sector,” Ramadani said.
