GeoPangea Research Group (GPRG)
GeoPangea Research Group (GPRG) is an independent research group founded on May 31st, 2010, led by ideas from young and passionate geology students of UPN ”Veteran” Yogyakarta. The group is supervised by Dr. C. Prasetyadi, a faculty member of the Geology Department, as well as a mentor to all research-related activities conducted by GPRG. This group aims to contribute to scientific knowledge in numerous aspects of geosciences (i.e. regional geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy, structural geology, tectonics, etc.) by performing research and demonstrating their application in hydrocarbon exploration. The results of our research are documented as published papers and articles in various journals and scientific conferences of both regional and international levels.
The focus area of GPRG is primarily on field and experimental-based research. To date, there are more than twenty professional papers and articles that have been published by GPRG, with the first research conducted in late 2010, entitled: Sedimentology of Parangtritis Coastal Dunes and Stream Table Analogue for Fluvial-Deltaic Morphology. Since then, this group keeps consistently developing experimental sed-strat analyses and structural analogue modeling within the loop of research projects.
