dc.description.abstract The spermonde islands are a reef complex trending north – south in the western coastline of South Sulawesi. The development of the reef is controlled by geological processes forming Makassar Strait. The strait arises since rifting between Kalimantan and Sulawesi in Paleocene Era and followed by spreading to form Makassar Strait. The geological process allows the reef complex developed along the Spermonde platform in the west coast of South Sulawesi. Beside the geological factor (such as sea floor morphology), global sea level fluctuation in the Quaternary Time also controlles the development of the reef complex. Klerk (1982) has studied the reef development with reference of P. Langkai, P. Kapoposan and P. Samalona. He found (based on C-14 dating) that there was an sea level fall during the period of 7000 year to 1000 year. Morphology of the islands within reef complex of Spermonde changes at any time following the seasonal changes. This change is controlled by sea currents and waves. Taking the example of Kodingarengkeke Island which was measured its shoreline during October 1979 - November 1980 and 2008 showed that the island has changed its morphology and shoreline, particularly in northern part. In the dry season (April to August) the northern coast tends to prolong east - west, but in the rainy season the coast extends north - south. en_US
