The earthquake generated a large tsunami that caused severe damage in Sumbawa Maximum intensities are indicated on the Mercalli intensity scale.Major events took in Romania, Indonesia and Australia, Argentina and in Tonga Island in the year. ELSEVIER Earth and Planetary Science Letters 153 (1997) 287-292 EPSL Express Letter Did the 1977 Sumba earthquake excite the Chandler wobble? The earthquake has been previously studied using seismological data. This is a list of earthquakes in 1977.Only earthquakes of magnitude 6 or above are included, unless they result in damage and/or casualties, or are notable for some other reason. The bodies of dozens of students killed when a landslide hit a church have been found in the aftermath of the Indonesian earthquake. The epicenter is located at 11.80 S and 118.60 E, in south of Sumba Island which it make the earthquake is known as Sumba Earthquake The earthquake triggered tsunami wave which hit the south coast of Bali, Lombok, The great 1977 Sumba earthquake occurred at the eastern Sunda trench, just west of the collision of Australian continental lithosphere with the island arc. A strong earthquake had been occurred on Friday, August 19th 1977 in Indonesia. The earthquake generated a large tsunami that caused severe damage in Sumbawa and Sumba Islands in Indonesia. The locations of the three tide gauges are shown in Figure 3 . Abstract. South Of Sumba, Indonesia has had: (M1.5 or greater) 0 earthquakes in the past 24 hours 1 earthquake in the past 365 days Analysis of the Tsunami Generated by the Great 1977 Sumba Earthquake that Occurred in Indonesia A strong earthquake had been occurred on Friday, August 19 th 1977 in Indonesia.

All dates are listed according to UTC time. The earthquake is known as Sumba Earthquake because originated at under the seabed south side of Sumba Island with magnitude Mw 8.3. The earthquake had triggered the tsunami wave, which is propagated toward south side of Sumba, Sumbawa, Lombok and Bali Island. The earthquake produced a large tsunami wave height of 10 m on the island of Sumbawa, which suggests sub- stantial deformation of the ocean bottom and associated fault 1977 Sumba earthquake sequence and elsewhere along the Java subduction zone in general. This event has been variously interpreted as a plate detachment event (i.e., rupture through the entire lithosphere) or a shallow plate-bending event. On August 19, 1977, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale occurred and caused a tsunami.

The great outer-rise earthquake (Mw 8.3) occurred near the Sunda trench, Indonesia, on 19 August 1977. The earthquake had triggered the tsunami wave, which is propagated toward south side of Sumba, Sumbawa, Lombok and Bali Island. The earthquake is known as Sumba Earthquake because originated at under the seabed south side of Sumba Island with magnitude Mw 8.3. The length of the aftershock zone of this normal‐faulting earthquake is about 200 km. With a moment magnitude of 8.3, the earthquake is notable … The great 1977 Sumba earthquake occurred at the eastern Sunda trench, just west of the collision of Australian continental lithosphere with the island arc.
Port Hedland for the great 1977 Sumba earthquake using the slip amounts of 3 and 7 m on the fault model shown in Figure 1. The vertical rupture extent of the Sumba earthquake is prob- lematical.
