Metamorphic rocks retain information of tectonic conditions in some areas by the study of its mineral compositions. Metamorphic rocks occupy in Central Indonesia terranes including Kalimantan, Jawa and Sulawesi. The purposes of this collaborative research program are estimates geochronology (age) of metamorphic rocks from Central Indonesia and its contribution for tectonic conditions. Metamorphic rock samples and analyse using most advance petrology laboratories and facilities in Kyushu University (XRF, SEM FE-EPMA, LA-ICP-MS and LA-MC-ICP-MS). The occurrence of metamorphic rocks in eastern and western part of Indonesia region are also provide important meaning for understanding plate movement, metamorphic evolution, and geological history of Indonesia as background and basic science of other applied geological study in Indonesia region.
