The December 26th 2004, Mw 9.2 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake ruptured 1300–1500 km of the subduction mega thrust along the eastern boundary of the Indian and Australian plates. The nearly 500 km long Andaman segment, the northernmost stretch of the 2004 event, evidenced slower rupture propagation and less slip than other segments. It is the largest event since the 1960s and the first Mw > 9 earthquake to occur in the era of modern space geodesy and broadband seismology.
