Eleven types of organic debris and thirty-one types of discrete organisms have been recognized in the surface samples obtained during research activities in Indonesia. The relative concentrations of these types have been submitted to reciprocal averaging and to cluster analysis. With reciprocal averaging two main groups can be distinguished: (1) open sea samples, characterized by the occurrence of identifiable remains of marine organisms, and (2) terrigeneously influenced samples characterized by the relative abundance of woody debris, pollen and spores. The clustering suggests that other depositional environments might be detected.
