The Indonesian region includes several volcanic island arcs that are highly active at the present day, and also contains a record of Cenozoic volcanic activity owing to subduction of oceanic lithosphere at the margins of SE Asia. As a result of long-term subduction, there is a high regional heat flow, and a weak crust and lithosphere, as identified in other subduction zone backarcs. The stratigraphic record in the Indonesian region reflects a complex tectonic history, including collisions, changing plate boundaries, subduction polarity reversals, elimination of volcanic arcs, and extension. The arcs have not behaved as often portrayed in many arc...
