WATER QUALITY ANALYSIS FOR THE REGION SEAWEED USING REMOTE SENSING TECHNOLOGY (REMOTE SENSING) AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN WATER ISLAND DISTRICT PURA ALOR
Pura Island is one of the districts in Alor Regency NTT between by two large islands and many smaller islands in the west bordering Pantar Island in the east by the Alor Island in the north bordering with Retta Island/Ternate and the south side of the island Tereweng. Community life on the island Pura dependent on dry land and fishing traditional therefore the need for land clearing new work of which is seaweed farming, it is necessary analysis land suitability for cultivation of seaweed for cover Economic Community Sector in Pulau Pura effective and efficient, The purpose of this study was to determine the carrying capacity of the waters on the island temple, knowing non-technical factors in the waters of the island temple, analyze the conformity of the waters of the technical aspects of using remote sensing data. The method primarily used in analyzing the suitability of the waters is a method of remote sensing with algorithm approach. Menujukana research results that the water quality (nitrates, phosphates, current speed and brightness) sting appropriate to serve as a regional development of seaweed cultivation in the island temple.
