Historically, the Sunda Strait has experienced tsunamis due to volcanic eruptions, earthquake tectonics and underwater landslides which have the potential for future recurrences.

The most recent event was the Sunda Strait Tsunami on 22 December 2018. Although there have been several writings on Mount Anak Krakatau (GAK), the results are not satisfactory. Therefore, this study proposes that tsunami modeling be carried out based on bathymetric survey data so that the source and impact of the tsunami due to the 2018 GAK can be reconstructed and inform mitigation efforts in the Banten and Lampung areas in the future.
