Vulkanismus auf Sumatra

Der Vulkanismus Sumatras entsteht durch die nordwestliche Subduktion der ozeanischen indisch-australischen Platte, die sich um etwa 7 cm jedes Jahr unter die kontinentale Sunda-Platte schiebt (Teil der eurasischen Platte). Es ist die tektonisch aktivste Zone der Erde und es gab hier schon Erdbeben stärker als 9 auf der Richter-Skala. Die Folgen solcher katastrophalen Erdbeben sah man am 26.12.2004 als eine Serie von Tsunamis mehr als 200.000 Menschenleben vernichtete. Die aktivsten Vulkane Sumatras sind die Vulkane Marapi (nicht mit Merapi zu verwechseln!), Karinci, Talang und der Kawa.

Vereinfachte, tektonische Karte des Indischen Ozeans und Sumatra. Man erkennt die Bewegungen der tektonischen Platten, den Sunda Tiefseegraben, der auch der Urspung des Erdbebens von 2004 war, das die schrecklichen Tsunamis ausgelöst hatte (USGS).
