Master of Earth Sciences

Master and Doctoral Program in Earth Sciences at the ITB was established in 1995 and 2003, respectively. their goal is to produce graduates with a thorough academic knowledge and professional abilities, and to develop and implement oceanography, atmospheric science, and seismology to mis geohazard reduction. These programs are under ITB Graduate Program and has been run by the School of Earth Science and Technology, ITB.2. Specific Sub-Program

Masters and Doctorate Program in Earth Sciences has three sub-specialty programs as follows:

Physical Oceanography

Students are directed to study the physical and dynamic properties of ocean waters that are important to the marine industry / technology, the environment, and the exploration of renewable marine resources

Research Interests: Wave modeling and analysis; Coastal waters dynamics (hydrodynamics and transport phenomena); modeling of marine environment (local, regional and global); air-sea interaction and ENSO; Environmental management of coastal waters; Tide and long-wave analysis and modeling; sea surface topography analysis and modeling; marine ecosystems and global change; fishery oceanography

Recent and Current Research: Coastal morphodynamics; 3D thermal dispersion model around the power plant; modeling of oil spills; marine hydrodynamic modeling; wave modeling and analysis; sea water quality modeling; ecological planning for mariculture; Tidal data analysis and modeling; Model of sea surface temperature and elevation in Indonesia and surrounding waters associated with ENSO phenomenon; tsunami modeling issues related to coastal protection; Predicting the movement of the warm pool, front salinity, and the convergence zone associated with fishing ground using hydrodynamical-ecological models are combined; sediment transport phenomena


Students are directed to study the physics of the earth. There is a particular emphasis on studying the issues related to earthquakes due to the high seismic activity in Indonesia and marine geophysics is to develop prospects marine resources nonrenewable.

Research interests: modeling and seismic anisotropy; Gravity and geomagnetic modeling; Geoelectric and electromagnetic modeling; Geodynamics and seismotectonics; geophysical environment: Earthquake and tsunami hazard assessment; Local, regional and global seismic tomography; The mechanism of seismic sources and prediction; The theoretical geophysics

Recent and Current Research: modeling of seismic exploration of hydrocarbons; Gravity and geomagnetic modeling for mineral exploration; Geodynamics and seismotectonics of the territory of Indonesia; The earthquake and tsunami hazard assessment for Indonesia; Non-linear seismic tomography of upwelling (feathers); Seismic anisotropy bottom of Lake Toba; Rate predictability of earthquakes; 3D ray tracing on Earth is round; statistical analysis of earthquake data Indonesia

Atmospheric Science

Students are directed to physical assessment and dynamic atmosphere in order to solve the climate and weather. There is a particular emphasis on studying the issues related to the Indonesian maritime continent which form the convective active area.

Research Interests: tropical monsoon and intraseasonal variability; El-Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and inter-annual variation; variations in long-term and global climate change; Regional climate response to global change; mesoscale meteorology; hydrometeorology; Coastal and maritime meteorology; hydrometeorology; meteorological environment; Indonesian maritime continent meteorology; Engineering meteorology

Recent and Current Research: ENSO: predictive models and analyzes their impact on regional climate; The mechanism of drought during the Indonesian maritime continent; Climate change is a newly developed micro transmigration areas; Field induced flow modeling; Wind circulation of sea / land; Air pollution monitoring and modeling; Global warming and climate change.
