Nur Zaman, Iswara Gautama, Usman Arsyad

Abstract: This study aims to analyze the relationship between changes in land use and the extent of landslides. This research was conducted from August 2019 to January 2020 in the Bua-bua watershed, Selayar Islands Regency. The data collected includes maps of land use change from 2013 to 2019 and landslide identification data from the results of the interpretation of satellite imagery field studies. The results showed that open field was a land use change factor that had the most significant effect on the area of landslides in 2019 because it had a p-value of 0.04 less than the ά of 0.05. This is because open field has a density of vegetation that is rarely uniform, which can hinder the infiltration process and lead to excessive surface flow that can lead to landslides.
