Tectonics and history of the Andaman Sea region
Abstract The Andaman Sea is an active backarc basin lying above and behind the Sunda subduction zone where convergence between the overriding Southeast Asian plate and the subducting Australian plateExpand

An overview of the sedimentary geology of the Bengal Basin in relation to the regional tectonic framework and basin-fill history
Abstract The Bengal Basin in the northeastern part of Indian subcontinent, between the Indian Shield and Indo-Burman Ranges, comprises three geo-tectonic provinces: (1) The Stable Shelf; (2) TheExpand

The Bengal Fan: morphology, geometry, stratigraphy, history and processes
Abstract The Bengal Fan is the largest submarine fan in the world, with a length of about 3000 km, a width of about 1000 km and a maximum thickness of 16.5 km. It has been formed as a direct resultExpand

Sediment volume and mass beneath the Bay of Bengal
Rates of sediment accumulation and the amount of sedimentary fill in depocenters lying downstream of erosion in the Himalayas and Tibet can provide some insight into tectonics and geological history.Expand

Growth of the Bengal Deep-Sea Fan and Denudation in the Himalayas
A geological and geophysical survey in 1968 has shown that the Bengal Deep-Sea Fan is almost 3000 km long, and 1000 km wide. We estimate that it may exceed 12 km in thickness. The sediments of theExpand

Seismic refraction studies of the Sunda Trench and Forearc Basin
Six refraction lines were shot parallel to structure, from the Sunda Trench axis to the west coast of Sumatra, near Nias Island. Seaward of the Nias Island ridge, 2.4–3.8 km of low-velocity sedimentExpand

New constraints on the tectonic evolution of the eastern Indian Ocean
Abstract From marine magnetic anomaly studies, a fossil spreading ridge is identified beneath the Nicobar Fan in the northwestern Wharton Basin. Several north-south-trending transform faults offsetExpand

The Sunda Arc: a model for oblique plate convergence
Abstract The Sunda Arc, which extends from the eastern Himalayan syntaxis to the Banda Arc, is the zone where the Indian-Australian plate or plates are being subducted beneath the Southeast AsianExpand

Seismic refraction and reflection studies of crustal structure of the Eastern Sunda and Western Banda Arcs
Two-ship seismic refraction profiles were made across the Sunda Arc south from central Java and Bali; in the Flores, Banda, and Arafura seas; and in the Timor Trough. South of the trench off Java andExpand
