Koulali, Achraf; Susilo, S.; McClusky, Simon; Meilano, I.; Cummins, Phil; Tregoning, Paul; Lister, Gordon; Efendi, J.; Syafii, M.A.


We use Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements of surface deformation to show that the convergence between the Australian Plate and Sunda Block in eastern Indonesia is partitioned between the megathrust and a continuous zone of back-arc thrusting extending 2000 km from east Java to north of Timor. Although deformation in this back-arc region has been reported previously, its extent and the mechanism of convergence partitioning have hitherto been conjectural. GPS observations establish that...[Show more]
