The ocean floor southwest of Sumatra is part of the Indian/Australian plate, while Sumatra and the other islands of Indonesia and Thailand are part of the Eurasian plate (see Figure 1). The two plates meet on the ocean floor at the plate boundary (black line in Figure 1), which is about km ( miles) off the western shore of Sumatra and.

The Indo-Australian tectonic plate (on the . The concept of plate tectonics was formulated in the s. According to the theory, Earth has a rigid outer layer, known as the lithosphere, which is typically about km (60 miles) thick and overlies a plastic (moldable, partially molten) layer called the lithosphere is broken up into seven very large continental- and ocean-sized plates, six or seven medium .

  Indonesia is a dangerous country to call home. Precariously located above the grinding and mashing of several tectonic plates, and ringed by a chain of fire-breathing volcanoes, the country's. Plate tectonics are plate movements which will in turn cause earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, mountain ranges, and islands. Both Hawaii and Alaska have active volcanoes. In the rest of the United States however, volcanic activity is observed only in the Pacific Northwest. In this investigation, you’ll plot volcano locations and explore how volcanism is related to plate g: Indonesian region. 2 Introduction • Earth's lithosphere is divided into mobile plates. • Plate tectonics describes the distribution and motion of the plates. • The theory of plate tectonics grew out of earlier hypotheses and observations collected during exploration of the rocks of the ocean floor.

Theory of Plate Tectonics. When the concept of seafloor spreading came along, scientists recognized that it was the mechanism to explain how continents could move around Earth’s surface. Like the scientists before us, we will now merge the ideas of continental drift and seafloor spreading into the theory of plate g: Indonesian region.

Abstract: The plate-tectonic evolution of a region can be deduced by following the as­ sumptions that subduction zones are characterized by ophiolite, melange, wildflysch, and blueschist, that intermediate and silicic calc-alkaline igneous rocks form above Benioff zones.

This was the first comprehensive report on the regional geology, but described the geological evolution of the archipelago in terms of the pre-plate tectonic. Figure Plate tectonic model of Indonesia (Tectonics of Indonesia) In the region of the earthquake, the Indo-Australia plate moves toward the northeast at a rate of about 6 cm/year relative to the Euro-Asian plate (Figure ).

This results in oblique convergence at the Sunda trench. The oblique motion is partitioned into thrust-faulting,File Size: KB. Indonesian Landforms and Plate Tectonics DOI: /ijog.v5i The horizontal configuration and vertical dimension of the landforms occurring in the tectonically unstable parts of Indonesia were resulted in the first place from plate tectonics.

Tectonics. The tectonics of Indonesia are very complex, as it is a meeting point of several tectonic plates. Indonesia is located between two continental plates: the Eurasian Plate (Sunda Plate) and Australian Plate (Sahul Shelf); and between two oceanic plates: the Philippine Sea Plate and Pacific Plate.

The Indonesian archipelago is an extremely complex collection of continental blocks, active and extinct volcanic arcs, old and young ocean basins and subduction complexes (commonly with ophiolites), marking the sutures where former oceans were consumed. PLATE TECTONICS. In 'The Problem' section, a simple background of the location of Indonesia in relation to the location of particular natural disaster hot spots such as the 'Ring of Fire' and 'Alpide Belt' was given.

Tectonics presents original research articles that describe and explain the evolution, structure, and deformation of Earth’s lithosphere including across the range of geologic time.

Katili is one of Indonesian geologists who wrote numerous publications, especially on the tectonic of the region. The idea to produce this book originated during the "Tectonics and Sedimentation of Indonesia" seminar, the first regional meeting of the Indonesian Sedimentologists Forum (FOSI), the sedimentological commission of IAGI, in The meeting was conducted to commemorate the 50 years anniversary of the publication of van Bemmelen's book, entitled "Geology of Indonesia.

INDONESIA, GEOLOGY 12/19/08 PM. About one-fourth of Indonesia's volcanoes are north of the Sunda arc in an area with complex tectonics. Several small plates have produced mostly north-south trending subduction zones. The volcanoes of Sulawesi, Halmahera, and Sangihe are the result of these subduction zones.

Figure This thematic map shows the volcanic eruptions, surface elevation, earthquakes and plate tectonics in the world. Since Indonesia is located in the "Ring of Fire" you can see the cluster of volcanoes and earthquakes. The triangles represent the volcanoes, the circles represent the earthquakes and the different colours separate the tectonic boundaries.

The northern part of Sulawesi and Maluku Islands lie on the convergence of Sunda Plate and Molucca Sea Plate, making it an active tectonic region with volcanic chains such as the Sangihe and Talaud Islands.
