Date: 25 – 28 OCTOBER 2019
KEPULAUAN SERIBU, INDONESIA
4-days pre-conference fieldtrip that provides the setting of modern reef systems of Pulau Seribu. This fieldtrip will provide details of the sedimentology and components of carbonate Sediment and reef building organisms specific to Kepulauan Seribu, which is typical reefs of the region.
Good understanding on depositional environment and facies variation in carbonate rock is an important aspect of the study. Carbonate reservoir’s properties are the direct results of their depositional fabric and diagenesis process. Hence, the proposed fieldworks aims to provide an opportunity for participants to enhance knowledge on carbonate depositional environments, sedimentary facies and related secondary processes that controlled and characterised the carbonate reservoir’s properties.
Field Trip Fee:
RM 6,000 / USD 1500 (per person)
* Field Trip is limited up to 20 pax only
Kepulauan Seribu is a cluster of about 128 small islands in the Bay of Jakarta in the Java Sea.
Participants will be based at Pulau Putri Resort throughout the stay at Kepulauan Seribu. It is located approximately 45 km north of Jakarta and can be reached in one hour and a half by speed boat.
Study of carbonates in Kepulauan Seribu offers the opportunity to observe and investigate modern carbonate sediments, reef building processes and evolution, facies distribution, build-up geometries and early diagenetic processes. Carbonates in this area exhibit characteristics that can be associated with global trends for Oligocene – Miocene rocks and provide useful analogues for carbonate fields in Central Luconia region.
