Abstract

This study was carried out to determine geomorphology and geological features of the Bukit Bauk. Bukit Bauk is located in the Dungun District, Terengganu, between 4°36′10″ to 4°53′02″ N and 103°07′25″ to 103°25′50″ E. Fields data were provided during three days fieldwork, from 22 to 25 of May 2006. The topography of Dungun area is divided into three different morphologies; 40% of the area consist of lowland, swamps and other water bodies covered 20 and 40% of this area is high landform that underwent weathering from grade III to VI. Geology of Dungun consisted of granite, meta-sediments, especially schist, phyllite and slate and quaternary sediments. Based on joint measurement of granitic rock at the coastal area, at least three compressions (P 1 to P 3) were interpreted during the Late Paleozoic to Early Mesozoic deformation with directions of N 55° E; N 25° E and N 15° E. Environment of Bukit Bauk has been identified as vulnerable to the natural hazards such as flashfloods and landslides due to its position of being surrounded by swamps and coastal areas.
