Foraminifera Distribution Patterns within Sequence Stratigraphy (A Case Study: Blora Area and Surroundings/Low Latitude Area)

Khoiril Anwar M.

Abstract. The approach in sequence stratigraphy analysis needs data from multi-discipline including biostratigraphy. Hypothetically, it indicates that biostratigraphy (foraminifera) can be used as a tool to identify a sequence. A case study at low latitude area has been done and some parameters such as microfauna assemblage, bioevent, abundance, diversity, and fauna composition have been applied to find some characteristics which could be used as a tool to identify sequence stratigraphy. Biostratigraphy as a tool seems to be influenced by the environment where the sediments are deposited. In shallow marine, where the age resolution is not very good, the sequence boundary and maximum flooding surface (MFS) are still easy to identify. On the contrary, in deep marine setting, biostratigraphy can be used to date the age and identify the condensed section which is associated with maximum flooding surface (MFS).
