Structural geology and sedimentology of Nias Island, Indonesia: A study of subduction zone tectonics and sedimentation
The mid-Tertiary subduction complex exposed on Nias Island, Indonesia comprises tectonic melanges and slope basin sediments. The unique exposures on Nias allow the internal structures of subduction zone rocks to be observed in a known morpho-tectonic setting. Field mapping on Nas was undertaken in an attempt to gain insights into deformational and sedimentary processes occurring in subduction zones.
