Aseismic zone and earthquake segmentation associated with a deep subducted seamount in Sumatra

This article has been published in Nature Geoscience, 2011 . The authors have identified a seamount 3–4 km high and 40 km wide that has been subducted to a depth of 30–40 km below the Sumatra forearc mantle. The seamount has remained intact despite more than 160 km of subduction, and that there is no seismic activity either above or below the seamount.
