Kabuh Formation

Stratigraphic unit in central Java, dated to the Early/Middle Pleistocene, and that contains Trinil fauna with Sino-Malayan affinities. The base of the unit is marked by a 1-2 m thick layer called the Grenzbank sands, dated to approximately 900 kya, a visually distinct marker sediment important because the sediments immediately above and below it (see the Pucangan Formation) are fossiliferous. The Kabuh Formation is up to 59 m thick. Aka Kabuh Beds.
