How to build a geoscience presentation (part 1)



(image from:

Geoscience has been placed as a rocket science, due to its complexity. The audience is considered to be very specific.

I mad these slides for my undergrad (and also my master students) in Bahasa Indonesia. It contains a few notes on how to make a worthy geoscience presentation.

I made it with LaTeX by the way. You can find the source code at:


About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia ( and serving as ORCID and OSF ( ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog:, (
