Historical Evidence for Past Tsunami in the Java Subduction Zone

Reid, Anthony


Despite its role in the 'Ring of Fire, where the India-Australia plate subducts beneath the Eurasian plate, Java has been thought to be relatively aseismic. A landmark article by Newcomb and McCann (1987) drew attention to likely mega-events of 1833 and 1861 on the west coast of Sumatra (when historical observation was still rudimentary), and contrasted this with the absence of reports of such events in Java.
