... Abstract High resolution multibeam bathymetric and seismic data from the area north of the Banggai-Sula Islands, Indonesia, provide a new insight into the geological history of the boundary between the East Sulawesi ophiolite, the Banggai-Sula microcontinent and the Molucca Sea collision zone...

... and Atlantic oceans (Fig. 4 ). This is a trait shared with Indian Ocean MORB (I-MORB) and suggests that during the Neogene the mantle wedge beneath Halmahera was part of the I-MORB domain which is consistent with the source inferred for lavas erupted to the north and west of the Molucca Sea during the Eocene...

... are presented in table I, on figure 2 and figure 3. In northern Molucca Sea (north of equvator), the fast convergence slip rate (75 mm/a) is absorbed by the Sangihe subduction and accommodates the major part of the Philippines/Sunda plates motion. South of the equator, the estimated slip rate is only 2 mm/yr...

Differential subsidence on NW–SE and NE–SW sets of faults in the region immediately behind the active arc led to the formation of deep sediment-filled basins adjacent...
