Paper Abstract

There is no agreement for the extensive of mangrove forest in Indonesia, but invarious forums it is usually used the number of 4.25 million ha for that. At approximately 9 years ago, the extensive vast of mangrove forest in Indonesia was about 4.13 million ha but now it is only 2.49 million ha (60%). Remote sensing could play an important and effective role in the assessment and monitoring of mangrove forest cover dynamics. The aim of this study is to measure change of the mangrove cover from the 1972 to 1993, from 1993 to 2003, from 2003 to 2013, and from 1972 to 2014 using multitemporal Landsat. The study site was selected in Tanakeke Island, Takalar District, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The results of analyze shows the mangrove forest is decrease and It is caused anthropogenic impact.
