Enigmatic Sulawesi: The Tectonic Collage

Peter Baillie, John Decker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sulawesi has a complex tectonic history that is affected by major plate re- organisations during the Cenozoic resulting in an extension-dominated setting in an overall setting of convergence of the Indo-Australian, Pacific and Philippine Sea, and Eurasian plates. It is a complex collage of disparate tectonic terranes brought into juxtaposition by a variety of tectonic processes which have occurred at very fast rates. The island is subject to a variety of geohazards related to earthquake and volcanic activity.
