The majority of Magelang Regency is considered as intermediate and high susceptible areas against landslide. As happened in Baleagung Village in January 2018, a landslide has damaged local residency buildings. The landslide occurred because of high-intensity rainfall on the day before. Meanwhile, cracks formed in several areas that were indicated by the slope around the village were still actively moving. Therefore, mitigation is urgently needed to minimize the risk of further landslide movement. This study aimed to analyze the mechanism of ground movement at Baleagung Village which was affected by rainfall. This research was conducted by using back-analysis method to determine the initial groundwater level conditions and its effect on the slope stability. Soil parameters were obtained by laboratory testing and permeability tests in the field. Subsequently, rainfall data was collected from Himawari-8 satellite and used as the data input parameter for numerical analysis using SEEP/W and SLOPE/W. The results obtained from back-analysis showed that rainfall infiltration into the soil affected the degradation of safety factor value that was caused by the increase of pore-water pressure and the decrease of effective stress in a certain period. The degradation of safety factor was caused by the increasing of soil saturation degree when water infiltrated into the ground.
Key words: landslide susceptibility / rainfall intensity / groundwater level / slope stability / landslide mitigation
