Abstract

Jakarta Bay as an area with the densest population in Indonesia became one of the highest contamination level waters in the world includes pollution of debris. Reclamation activities in Jakarta Bay will change the water conditions will also affect the distribution of debris at sea. Therefore, this study conducted to determine the movement of the macro debris before and after island reclamation in Jakarta Bay. The method used is a model that simulated by the hydrodynamic model and particle trajectory model. Data needed for the hydrodynamic model were wind, tides, bathymetry, and shoreline, while for the trajectory of the particles using a data type of macro debris, debris weight, and debris flux. Hydrodynamics simulations indicate if a reclamation island formation does not change surface current patterns significantly, but causes a decrease in the flow velocity of ± 0.002 to 0.02 m/s at some point. The trajectory of particles of debris indicate if after reclamation, debris tends to accumulate in the eastern Jakarta Bay in the rainy season (January) as there are anticlockwise eddy current, as well as in the western and eastern regions during the dry season (July), because there is a clockwise eddy current in the eastern Jakarta Bay.
