LATE PLEISTOCENE TO MID-HOLOCENE COASTAL AND INLAND INTERACTION IN THE GUNUNG SEWU KARST, YOGYAKARTA

J. Susetyo Edy Yuwono

Abstract


The Gunung Sewu karst in the Southern Mountains of
Java Island has specific characteristics from a geoarchaeological
viewpoint. Cross disciplinary approaches
utilising Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and
geographical and geological information, are very useful
for examining correlations between site distributions and
geophysical processes. The geographical and geological
aspects of the region contribute information for understanding
prehistoric interactions between coastal and
inland communities. GIS technology was applied in an
examination of terrain, the karst landscape, and the
distributions of cave sites.
