The Mentawai Fault Zone (MFZ) along the south Sumatra forearc. Red, yellow and green circles represent earthquakes with depth of 0–30, 30–60, and 60–90 km, respectively [Pesicek et al., 2010]. Beach balls are GCMT focal mechanisms (1976–2010) for earthquake 30 km depth (modified from Mukti et al., 2012).
Photograph of channel-and-overbank deposits. Two stacked channel-fill deposits are incased in overbank fine-grained deposits. Sediment waves are denoted by SW (modified from Mukti & Ito, 2010).
