New insight on the deformation along the southern Java forearc

This note is taken from an abstract presented at American Geophysical Union, Fall Meeting 2012. The new seismic data set in south Java resolved detailed structures of the southern Java forearc. The plate interface expressed as irregular surface in the western part and rather a continuous smooth boundary in the eastern area. This observation coincides with the higher uplift of the western part of the … Lanjutkan membaca New insight on the deformation along the southern Java forearc

Seismic images of the megathrust rupture during the 25th October 2010 Pagai earthquake, SW Sumatra: Frontal rupture and large tsunami

This is a note from an article that has been published in Geophysical Research Letters, 2011. An earthquake of Mw = 7.8 occurred on the 25th October 2010, SW of Pagai Island, Sumatra. The earthquake generated an unexpected very large tsunami on Pagai Islands with run‐up height of up to 8 m. Here we present seismic reflection and bathymetry images from the 2010 epicentral region … Lanjutkan membaca Seismic images of the megathrust rupture during the 25th October 2010 Pagai earthquake, SW Sumatra: Frontal rupture and large tsunami
