Hopefully, Next week I will finish and post a tribute to Awang Satyana, one of the prominent Indonesian geologist. The post will verbatimly linked to his post at his Facebook Wall.

There will be three posts:

  1. Books: the world he can’t live without

  3. The geology of Indonesia: his scientific point of view

Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behaviour.
