Introduction

The present paper presents a description of the oceanographical features of the coastal zone between Jakarta and Cirebon. From the outset it has to be stated that the paper is not intended to be an exhaustive source of information concerning the oceanography of this region. Rather it is a brief report of the facts and figures of the physical, chemical, biological, and geological parameters that describe its oceanographical features.

Research has been done on the coastal and land geology of the area, but not much has been done on its marine physics, chemistry, and biology. Therefore of necessity the present report contains mostly inferences and interpolations drawn from the oceanographical knowledge available on the adjacent areas, specifically the Java Sea and Jakarta Bay.

The paper consists of three sections: "Oceanography" prepared by A. G. Ilahude, "Biology" prepared by D. P. Praseno, and "Geology" prepared by Otto S. R. Ongkosongo. It is hoped that the paper may serve as the basis for discussion of the oceanography of the region.
