Halmahera, Indonesia

Asessment of seismic and volcanic hazard under Halmahera

Duration: 2016-2018

PI: Dr. Claus Milkereit

BMKG / Indonesia
GFZ Sectionen 1.1, 2.1, 2.2 (GIPP), 2.4, and 3.1

 The project aims at the understanding and modelling of an unusual seismic activity under Halmahera (NE Indonesia). In 2015-2016 hundreds of felt earthquakes happened in the Jailolo Region, some of them reached M5 (GEOFON 2016 http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de/eqinfo/event.php?id=gfz2016dukv, 2015 http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de/eqinfo/event.php?id=gfz2015xneg).

Project partner is the BMKG (www.bmkg.go.id),  Together we will install a seismic and geodetic temporary network in the region, extended with 2 volcano gas-monitoring stations. In addition, an extended educational programme accompanies the project. Within the GFZ sections 1.1, 2.1, 2.2 (GIPP), 2.4, and 3.1 are involved in this project.
