Mentawai Gap–Tsunami Earthquake Risk Assessment (MEGA-TERA)
The Mega-Tera experiment took place in May - June 2015 aboard the Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) research vessel Falkor. A total of 19,515 km2 of high-resolution bathymetry and 2,780 km of high-resolution reflection data were acquired in the Wharton Basin and the Mentawai frontal region. The objective of the experiment was to understand the link between earthquake and tsunami genesis and assess the tsunami potential in the Mentawai locked zone.
