On Decemone of the largest earthquakes of the last hundred years occurred in the Indian Ocean, outside of Sumatra and the Andaman Islands. This earthquake set into motion a transoceanic tsunami that struck coasts of the Andaman Sea, Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean, and Arabian Sea.

The 26 December Sumatra-Andaman earthquake was the largest seismic event on Earth in more than 40 years, and it produced the most devastating tsunami Sumatra-Andaman Islands earthquake and tsunami of December 26 recorded his-tory (1). Like other comparably sized great earthquakes—such as the Kamchatka, the Andreanof Islands in the Aleutians, the Southern Chile, and the Prince.

A minute before 8 o'clock in the morning local time, a colossal earthquake began to shake the northern part of Sumatra and the Andaman Sea to its north.

Seven minutes later a stretch of the Indonesian subduction zone kilometers long had slipped by an average distance of 15 meters. The moment magnitude of the event was eventually estimated asmaking it one of the largest recorded Author: Andrew Alden. The Great Sumatra-Andaman Earthquake of 26 December and southeastern Eurasian plates on 26 December [seismic moment magnitude (Mw) = to ] and 28 March (Mw = The Sumatra-Andaman earthquake caused the worst tsunami disaster in history.

In order to reduce damage from future natural hazards, important steps include (1) scientific research, (2 Author: Kenji Satake. Rupture Modelling of the Decem Sumatra-Andaman Earthquake using the Hi-Net Array. Point of contact: Miaki Ishii 日本語 (Japanese Version) The Decem Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and its ensuing tsunami caused unprecedented and unanticipated destruction across Asia, but the character of the rupture has proven difficult to unravel.

A magnitude megathrust earthquake occurred on Decem just off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The earthquake happened on the interface of the India and Burma plates. Based on preliminary locations of larger aftershocks, approximately kilometers of the plate boundary slipped as a result of the earthquake.

From the size of the earthquake it is likely that average. Results from different tsunami forecasting and hazard assessment models are compared with observed tsunami wave heights from the 26 December Indian Ocean tsunami.

Forecast models are based on initial earthquake information and are used to estimate tsunami wave heights during propagation. An empirical forecast relationship based only on seismic moment provides a close estimate to the.
