Seram, an island of the outer Banda Arc, eastern Indonesia, is crucial to understanding the complex interplay between major tectonic processes in this region, such as the ongoing collision between Australia and Eurasia, Banda Sea subduction rollback, strike-slip faulting, crustal delamination, melting and flow. It is located in a region of intense seismic activity and important frontier hydrocarbon exploration, yet because it is a large, sparsely populated island of rainforest and mountains, its geological evolution remains poorly understood.
