2023-01-09, M7.6, Indonesia

On the 9th of January 2023 an M7.6 earthquake occurred in the Tanimbar region of Indonesia (see map below). Several aftershocks were also reported after the powerful quake that was also felt in some parts of northern Australia.

Indonesia is positioned at the boundary of 3 tectonic plates (the Indian-Australian, Eurasian and Pacific plates). The plate boundaries are long and found beneath the ocean, meaning large and shallow earthquake can be generated from this zone that may potentially generate tsunami.

The event was recorded by seismic stations worldwide, including stations in theĀ Irish National Seismic Network (INSN), see figure below.
