Languages of publication
This study aims to determine what is the influence of the density of mangroves on the rate of coastal sediment transport and abrasion that occurred in the Sikakap Coastal area of Mentawai Island district. The research method used is the quadratic transect method and the sediment trap method. The type of mangrove vegetation that dominates in the Sikakap Coastal area of Mentawai Island district is Avicennia marina. Tree level mangrove density at Station I is 1,450 stands / ha and categorized as good, while the tree level mangrove density at Station II is 900 stands / ha and categorized as heavily damaged mangrove forests. The relationship between mangrove density and transport sediment rate in Sikakap Coastal, Mentawai Island district shows a negative correlation with the value -1, meaning that when mangrove density is high, the transport sediment rate will be low, and vice versa, when mangrove density is low, the transport sediment rate will be high.
