Volcanism in Sumatra

Sumatra's volcananism is caused by the northeastward subduction of the oceanic Indian-Australian plate at speeds of up to 70 mm/year under the continental Sunda plate (part of the Eurasian plate).
The region is tectonically among the most active on earth, as the great 9.0 (or perhaps even 9.3) magnitude earthquake on Dec. 26, 2004, has sadly illustrated.
The most active volcanoes of Sumatra are Marapi and Karinci, followed by Talang and Kawa volcanoes.
