Historical Earthquakes of the Eastern Sunda Arc: Source Mechanisms and Intensity-Based Testing of Indonesia's National Seismic Hazard Assessment

Griffin, Jonathan; Nguyen, Ngoc; Cummins, Phil; cipta, athanasius


Historical reports of earthquake effects from the period 1681 to 1877 in Java, Bali, and Nusa Tenggara are used to independently test ground‐motion predictions in Indonesia’s 2010 and 2017 national probabilistic seismic hazard assessments (PSHAs). Assuming that strong ground motion occurrence follows a Poisson distribution, we cannot reject Indonesia’s current and previous PSHA for key cities in Java at 95% confidence, although the results suggest an incremental improvement in the updated PSHA....[Show more]
