    Plans to build a sea dike in the Jakarta Bay to solve the multiple water problems in the Jakarta area should take into account the possibility of tsunami waves from a possible future explosion of Anak Krakatau. To obtain a rough indication of the possible waves we took the waves caused by the 1883 explosion of the Krakatau as guidance. The inverse problem to determine a possible generation scenario that produces similar waves as in 1883 is considered here using a relatively simple phreato-magmatic explosion model. For the simulations we use a Finite Element implementation of a linear Variational Boussinesq model.
