Le Volcanisme sur Sumatra

Le volcanisme de Sumatra est une conséquence de la subduction vers le Nord-est de la plaque océanique indo-australienne sous la plaque continentale de la Sonde (une subdivision tectonique de la plaque Eurasienne) avec une progression allant jusqu'à 70 mm/ans.
La région est tectoniquement parmis les plus actives de toute la planète Terre, enregistrant de très forts séismes de fortes magnitude, comme le grand séisme de magnitude 9.0 (ou peut être même de 9.3) le 26 décembre 2004, qui a malheureusement été illustré.
Les volcans les plus actifs de Sumatra sont le Marapi et le Karinci, suivi par les volcans Talang et Kawa.
