Extreme weather triggers high-intensity rainfall, and it triggers land movement that eventually becomes landslides. The water of rain will enter to the ground through the rock gaps and accumulate along the landslide area to reduce effective stress and reduce the shear strength of the soil. Morphologically, Sukaresmi Village, Cisaat Sub-District, Sukabumi Regency is located at the foot of Mount Gede with a bumpy surface relief. This condition is one factor that triggers landslides because the soil is prone to movement. This research aims to identify the field slope zone for landslide prediction in the Sukaresmi village, hoping that the surrounding community could anticipate further landslides. The research was carried out using the Geoelectrical Resistivity method of the Schlumberger configuration as many as eight measuring points with 1 m electrode spacing. This research indicates that the subsurface conditions are divided into three constituent rocks: Clay, Tuff, and Volcanic Breccia. The field slide zone is located between the Tuff rock and turf layer at a depth of 4-7. 5 m long, 82 m (Line 1), and 40 m (Line 2), with a resistivity value range of 56-158 Ωm. The efforts that the local government can make to anticipate the condition of the building to remain safe include analyzing soil stability, strengthening slopes, and making retaining walls to increase the value of the safety factor.
