ABSTRACT
When a large earthquake hit Yogyakarta in 26 May 2006, several liquefaction events occurred in some places in Yogyakarta and surrounding areas. Liquefaction event is strongly influenced by the depth of the ground water in the area, as well as several other parameters. This paper will conduct a qualitative correlation between the observational data liquefaction after the earthquake and the measured groundwater depth.

A total of 493 water-table depths were directly measured in the southern part area of volcanic- clastic sediment by using a measuring-tape meter. Fairly high correlation is shown between areas with shallow water depth and the position of occurred liquefactions. The average water depth for liquefied soil is 2.05 m. Almost 90% of the study area showed a high potential for liquefaction to occur.
