List of earthquakes in Indonesia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
As of the present, six of the Top Ten strongest Indonesian earthquakes ≥ 8.3 Mw occurred near Sumatra and along the Java Trench.

This is an incomplete list of more recent recorded major earthquakes that have occurred within the boundaries of Indonesia—as indicated by the geology of the region, and the volcanic activity—much large numbers of earthquakes of smaller magnitude occur very regularly due to the meeting of major tectonic plates in the region. Based on the records of the USGS, Indonesia has had more than 150 earthquakes with magnitude > 7 in the period 1901–2017.
