Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
As the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Universitas Gadjah Mada, I am pleased to welcome you to the Geophysics Field Camp 2018. The Geophysics study program is a part of department of Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences , University of Gadjah Mada, Special Region of Yogyakarta.
Our vision is to be known both internationally and nationally and excel in education, research, and community service, and to produce graduates who are competent in their fields, literate in information technology, entrepreneurial, and able to compete at both national and international level. This particular event will increase international recognition to our faculty/institution and also for improving the quality and relevance of international network. This particular event is annually held by our final year Geophysics students. Providing an opportunity for our students to develop both their academic and soft skill sets, Field Camp also collaborating different aspects of geophysics as a whole experience. Working on a final project that actually relate to a real field with a real potential elevates students' understanding in how a project should be done. Our institution encourages students to be active, the publications that will be made, adds more value to the student's future career or academic path.
Wassalamu’alaikum wr. wb.
Assalamu'alaikum wr wb.
As the Faculty Advisor of Society of Exploration Geophysicists Universitas Gadjah Mada Student Chapter (SEG UGM – SC), I proudly introduce you to Geophysical Field Camp, an annual event of SEG UGM - SC. In 2018 our field camp will be held at Sangon Kulon Progo Yogyakarta province. Sangon is locally known as a place prosperous in mineral deposits which located in complex geology setting.
Around one hundred final year students of the Geophysics Study Program, Department of Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Universitas Gadjah Mada will be intensively acquaint with conducting an integrated approach of multi-geophysical survey for analyzing subsurface physical and geological properties of the area. During this 10 days field camp, they will learn: how to make a valid multi-geophysical survey design based on geological field study in order to reach efficiency and effectiveness as well as optimum measurement results quality; how to set up various geophysical instruments and other survey equipments (GPS and Field Communication systems) properly, preparing field lo-

gistics and procedures which enhanced safety, health, and environment as the first and foremost priority; how to set up various geophysical data processing software, and apply them to real data with a systematic procedure; how to manage individual knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to excel a good team work while conducting various geophysical measurements; and finally to integrate the results of all measurements in accurate, solid, and comprehensive subsurface models of the target area.
From all mentioned above, I strongly believe that Geophysics Field Camp 2018 is an encouraging opportunity for the students to implement the whole package of geophysical knowledge and other skills beyond. Therefore, I encourage all students, field assistants, and field supervisors to synergistically impart their knowledge, skills, good attitude, and sincere effort for the successful Geophysical Field Camp 2018.
Thank you very much.

Geophysics Field Camp 2018 is an annual event planned and executed by senior students of Geophysics study program, Universitas Gadjah Mada. Geophysics Field Camp is organized by Society of Exploration Geophysicists Universitas Gadjah Mada Student Chapter (SEG UGM – SC) since 2009, this event is supported annually by Society of Exploration Geophysicist (SEG).
This project has been giving a great amount of beneficial experiences in understanding a series of geophysical projects. From surveying the field to presenting the result will be done systematically. Geophysics field camp activity is set identically with a real geophysical project.
The participants will work in a team to manage the project which requires a preparation stage: geological fieldtrip, HSE Training, and class-session. The project will contribute benefits not only to geophysics community, but also to the society resides around Field Camp area by giving outdoor education concerning natural resources and hazard potential that exist in the area. Moreover, we will be holding a social project as our dedication to society.
Fieldcamp 2018 consists of three events that are Pre Events, Field Session, and Post Event. Click to expand.
Field Session is our main event that will be held for ten days from 29 April – 9 May 2018* at Kalirejo Village, Kokap Sub District, Kulon Progo Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta. This is an integrated geophysics survey to map the subsurface features including mineralization, intrusion, and alteration area related to prospect mining exploration and area mapping of landslide hazard within prospect area.
This event is one of the most interesting session to socialize with people about our activity in field camp and some additional activity such as Milk Day, Medical Check Up, Student Scholarships, and building Green Park.
Final Report Presentation
In this session there will be report or presentations of each method that will be done in Fieldcamp 2018. The presenter will explain the result and the conclusion about the prospective of research area. This event will be held on May 2018.

During the Field Camp, we have a commitment to minimize time loss, injury, and environmental damage. HSE Workshop is a requirement for all participant to maintain HSE aspect during Field Camp. The HSE Workshop will be held on April 2018.
In this event, the participants will be trained how to interpret geophysical data by using geophysical principles. This event will be held on March 2018.
Survey Design and ArcGis Workshop
This session will explain how to make an effective field survey. It begins with a survey map making from the geological map of the area that will be used for acquisition. That process would determine the point where the acquisition is expected to show the desired target zone. The making of survey maps will be using ArcGis software. To accommodate this demand, we will hold ArcGis Workshop. These events will be held on March 2018.
Will be held on March 2018 at Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Universitas Gadjah Mada. This is a preceding workshop to provide the participant a forum in understanding the study area geologically using satellite imageries and literature studies. In this workshop, the participant will also be doing survey design presentation, weighing and making slight adjustment so that the survey plan could match both the target and the method used.
Will be held on March 2018 and take location at Fieldcamp 2018 site. This will help the participant to design survey plan based on field condition as a crosscheck of the geology seminar. Basic geology, structural geology, and other associated subject about geology is used to identifying the properties of rock deposition and analyzing geological map to verify the target measurement.
