...R.M. Russo Abstract Shear-wave splitting of S waves from earthquakes in the Arakan slab is consistent with strong asthenospheric anisotropy that developed as a consequence of the India-Asia collision. Global positioning system (GPS) site velocities in the India-Asia-Sundaland triple junction region...

... in that it was accompanied by subsidence (as much as 1 m) but not by strong shaking near Port Blair. If event II was the A.D. 1762 Arakan earthquake, the laminated sand and mud provide the first evidence that this earthquake was associated with a tsunami. The 2004 earthquake at Port Blair was accompanied by weak shaking...

... earthquake in the Arakan region (e.g., the historical 1762 Arakan earthquake rupture) may not propagate southward into the Irrawaddy region for the same reason. We conclude that in the event of earthquake occurrence on either side of the arc, such a shallow slab tear will prevent or defuse the effect...

... reports from the Burmese coast, as well as parts of the east coast of India ( Temple, 1911 ), suggest this is comparable to the 1941 earthquake in magnitude and rupture extent. An earthquake also occurred in the Arakan Coast of Burma (Myanmar) on 2 April 1762 ( Oldham, 1883 ; Chhibber, 1934 ); from...

... the twentieth century, there were several records of historical earthquakes in Myanmar, for example, the 1762 Arakan earthquake ( Cummins, 2007 ; Gupta and Gahalaut, 2009 ). A number of shallow earthquakes related to the strike‐slip faults across the country caused damage (see also Aung, 2017 , for complete...

The damage caused by the 1869 earthquake was confined in small regions where unconsolidated sediments were present, and so this earthquake cannot...
