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.
THIS YEAR'S THEME
and Geological Structure Mapping
Using Geophysical Methods
for Advancing Prosperity of Society
in Kulon Progo,
Special Region of Yogyakarta
Field Camp 2018 is designed to apply all of the geophysical knowledges of the final year Geophysics Student. It generally aims to give contribution to academic development―particularly in geophysics and geology―in a form of series of fieldwork and research program. The main target of Field Camp 2018 is gold deposit mapping. In that case, these are the objectives of this activity:
The participants are fourth year students of the Geophysics Study Program and selected participants from other institution. The expected participants are up to 80 people
Kulon Progo lies between 7°52' S to 7°55' S latitudes and 110°2' E to 110°5' E longitudes with total area 12.72 km . Variety lithology in Kulon Porgo are(1) an Old Andesite Breccia Formation, consist of andesite-breccia, agglomerate, tuff, lapili-tuff and inserted andesite lava (2) a Sentolo Formation, consist of limestone and marl sandstone; (3) an Alluvium Formation, consist of sand, gravel, silt and clay; (4) a Marine Formation which consist of sandy beach material, Bemmelen (1970).
Variety in lithology has a correlation with surrounding geomorphology. Morphology that we may find in Kulon Progo are: (1) the alluvial plain, (2) the denudational hills which consist of Old Andesite Breccial Formation, (3) the denudational hillslope, composition of this morphology is primarily Sentolo Formation (marl limestone), (4) the natural levee, (5) the fluviomarine plain, (6) the sand dunes.

Kulonprogo is located at western area of Yogyakarta, forming of mountainious range in NS direction. The Kulonprogo mountain range is mainly composed of volcanic rock of Oligo-Miocen age (Andesite Formation) overlain the Eocen sandstone. Magmatic activity during Oligo-Miocen generate hydrothermal deposit (i.e. Cu-Au-Mn) has been traditionally mined by local people since early 1900s. Those metal deposit are hosted within the Oligo-Miocen Rock (i.e. andesite basaltic lava-volcanic breccia) in vein structure. The knowledge of subsurface beneath Kulonprogo, as detected by geophysical survey, can be help us to estimate the resource and the control of deposit occurrences
