As one of the most populated islands in Indonesia, research on active tectonics in Java is still lacking. Furthermore, other than the destructive 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake, there were no other significant earthquakes that occurred and damaged cities in Java.
Nonetheless, active inland faults in Java exist from west to east of Java with slip rate varied between 1-6 mm/yr. Notice that those recent scientific findings suggest that the active inland faults are through big cities in Java, such as Jakarta, Semarang and also Surabaya. Subduction zone located in southern Java is also prone to future megathrust earthquakes.
In this seminar, we are going to share those scientific findings and discuss the present-day crustal deformation of Java based on GPS data. In addition, we will also discuss some issues related with the challenge and opportunities of conducting research in this particular region.

The COMET+ webinar series promotes research by collaborators of COMET scientists. We aim to provide a platform for these researchers to showcase their work to large and international audiences, opening doors to broader collaborative networks and enhancing the community’s diversity of backgrounds and ideas.
