Tutor description

Borneo is known as the largest island in the Southeast Asia which drains through the longest and biggest tropical rivers (approximately 900-1000 km in length and 50-700 km wide). Most of the rivers are charged with great amounts of sedimentary materials, resulting from equatorial weathering condition, and combinations of climate, tectonics

Most of the rivers are charged with great amounts of sedimentary materials, resulting from equatorial weathering condition, and combinations of climate, tectonics, base level changes, and avulsion (Schumm, 1968).Despite of high-resolution seismic image capability that able to directly visualize paleogeography appearance, quantification of the fluvial morphology dimension using modern analogue will provide further insight of channel style and depositional facies geometry to the subsurface (Posamentier, 2001). This article aims at better understanding of fluvial controls and morphology of Mahakam River, Borneo using Landsat data and field surveys (Figure 1). The morphometric measurements aim to predict paleo-channel shape, composition of the major lithologies, as well as various parameters that control their
