Stratigraphic Lexicon of Indonesia

The importance of a stratigraphic lexicon to geoscientists has long been realized by us. It has become a kind of a preliminary guidebook to the understanding of the geology of an area to be studied. Through a lexicon, also known as nomenclature, earth scientists can find all the existing lithostratigaphic terminologies of their respective countries.

Like most stratigraphic lexicon, the present one also contains information on the lithostratigaphic units which are available in the literature, either formal or informal ones, accompanied by name of unit, age, nomenclature, type locality, description, fossil content, thickness, distibution, environment, tectonic setting, economic aspect, remark, and reference.
