Abstract:In the early days after the large scale earthquake and tsunami hit Banda
Aceh on 26 December 2004, a coastal area on the tip of Sumatra
Island, Indonesia, scientists came from all over the world to this coast
to witness and investigate the scale of damage that these rare disaster
have caused to this broad low-lying coastal area. Many of them
researched the direct impact due to the earthquake and tsunami, but
mostly without further investigate the extent of the changes of the
coastal morphology. A lack of comprehensive study about the coast
before the tsunami event was mainly the problem. Without the knowledge
of how much the coast has changed the new state of the coastal
morphology cannot be determined, thus, forecast of the coastal development
may lead to bias result.
