Coastal area is a dynamic environment where erosion, sediment transport and deposits contributed continuously to the physical changes in this area. This dynamic process requires energy as a driving force in the processes that take place on the coast. Sediment cells are spatially discrete areas of the coast within which marine and terrestrial landforms are likely to be connected through processes of sediment transport. They include areas of sediment sources, sediment sinks, and the sediment transport processes linking them. The objective of this study is to determine sediment cells boundary in the north coast of the East Java Island, Indonesia. This work is based on various satellite images data. Twelve sediment cells were identified in the north coast of the East Java. These coastal cells can be very helpful for coastal planning and management issues in Indonesia.
