The southern part of Java Island is located between the two plates of the subduction zone, therefore this region had an active tectonic and volcanic activities. Those made a deformation of the geology around the southern part of Java island. This research was conducted to know the volume of deep geological structures to provide an overview of disaster warning systems in southern East Java region. The research that has been carried out using numerous active geophysical methods such as seismic methods had not been able to indicate internal structures. The needed for innovation used the integration of gravity and magnetotellurics methods. Bouguer anomaly gravity map became the supported data for interpretation. It showed low-density zones (0-80 mGal) between Pacitan-Trenggalek and beneath the Lumajang area which indicates the fault structure. Magnetotellurics (MT) which had a high penetration so that it is able to map deep active geological structures below the surface. The research area covered 8 regencies at the southern of East Java namely Pacitan, Trenggalek, Tulungagung, Blitar, Malang, Lumajang, Jember, and Banyuwangi. Magnetotelluric 1D processing showed indications of faults with orientations tend to be NE-SW between Pacitan and Trenggalek with depth (500 m - 8000 meter). Indications of faults with orientation tend to be NorthEast-SouthWest in Lumajang (100 - 500 meter).
