ABSTRACT

SUCCESSION OF THE HALANG FORMATION,


A LATE MIOCENE INTRA ARC BASIN-FILLING IN BANTARKAWUNG
CENTRAL JAVA-INDONESIA
Bantarkawung is one of area in Central Java that a part of Bogor-North SerayuKendeng physiography zone. This area was formed in the back-arc basin during
Oligocene-Middle Miocene and turned into intra-arc basin in the Middle MioceneHolocene that has recorded volcanic activity since Oligocene. Halang Formation
revealed that presently being reworked-volcanic materials that was deposited by
gravity flow in submarine-fan during Middle Miocene-Late Miocene. The resulting
detailed-map and field observations consist of four major facies associations : slump
deposits, submarine-channel sandstone, submarine-fan lobe sandstone, mudstone
basin plain. Halang Formation is dominated by intercalated sandstone-mudstone.
Bouma sequence (intervals Ta-Te) was quitely founded in outcrop that indicates
turbidity current was existed. At the interval Tc sequences have shown bidirectional
climbing ripple as a result of reflected-turbidite mechanism. Consequently, the basin
was bounded by two paleo-high that take place in intra-arc basin system. Petrographic
composition is dominated by calc-plagioclase (labradorite-bytonite) and locally tuff
(vitric tuff) that indicates volcanic-influenced was deposited. Based on paleocurrent
direction is predominantly western-eastern and the existence of paleohigh may be
interpreted Kumbang Volcano in the western part and Proto Slamet in eastern part,
respectively. Sedimentation of the Halang Formation is dominated by sea level rise,
its consist of trasgressive system tract, hihgstand system tract and second
transgressive system tract that are against global climate conditions that tend to be
cool. Sea level rise presumed due to an active subsidence in the basin.
