On the Cusp of a Tear: Arc-Continent Collision in the Banda Arc

Thursday, November 12 | 4:00 PM

Virtual Event

Meghan Miller, of Australian National University, will present this lecture.

Eastward along the Sunda-Banda arc, convergence transitions from subduction of oceanic lithosphere to arc-continent collision. This region of eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste provides an opportunity for unraveling the processes that occur during collision between a continent and a volcanic arc, and can be viewed as the temporal transition of the process of continental collision along strike. We have collected a range of geological, geodetic, seismic, and geomorphic data to place constraints on the geometry and history of subduction.
