Correlation of Tertiary Lithostratigraphic Units in the Java Sea and Adjacent Areas

G. A. S. Najoan


In the Java Sea Tertiary sediments cover a cratonized basement of Pretertiary age. Tentative standard sections of the Tertiary sequence employ used stratigraphic nomenclature.

Regional lithologic correlation provides a consistent picture of alternating carbonate and clastic series covered by a clay series. This correlation is substantiated by paleontological data. Although local variations exist, the following uniformly valid nomenclature is suggested:

- Claystone Series or Equivalents

- Main Carbonate Unit A

- Clastic Series A.

- Main Carbonate Unit B

- Clastic Series B.
