Earthquakes in the Santa Cruz Islands, Solomon Islands
Friday Feb 01, 2013 16:57 PM | BY: T
The area of the quakes lies at the subduction zone where the Australian oceanic plate dives under the Pacific plate. The subduction process also causes volcanic activity along an arc of island volcanoes. The nearest volcano to the earthquakes is Tinakula, located to the north of Nenda, about 70 km distance from both areas of earthquakes. Tinakula is rarely visited, but one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and often in strombolian activity.
