Erosion area, volume and particulate organic carbon emission to the ocean were calculated by the coastal erosion of the Bengkalis Island, Indonesia. In the Bengkalis Island, total of 741 ha peatland has lost from 1998 to 2013. The erosion rate of the coast is almost double in recent 5 years. Annual total of 2.6 Mm 3 of the peat and 1.2 Mm 3 of the clay have been eroded to the ocean. Annual particulate organic carbon loss from the Bengkalis Island was at the maximum of 0.13 Tg. Also, groundwater emission to the coastal area was enhanced by making constructed water way.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
