Abstract:

On the 26th December 2004 in South East Asia, near the island of Sumatra a very large seismic event occurred known as “the catastrophic earthquake of Sumatra-Andaman”. It provoked major destruction in the area as well as a massive tsunami. Both of these events inflicted considerable economic losses, damage and death. Seismologists consider that the Sumatra earthquake was one of the largest in the last 40 years. The earthquake resulted from a collision of tectonic plates of the Indian Ocean and the Eurasian plate. As a geological result, some tectonic and physical-chemical processes taking place in the centre of Sumatra-Andaman earthquake (temperature, pressure, mechanical, acoustic, electromagnetic and gravitational fields of a various range, a shock wave, etc.) occurred the global geodynamic changes both in the structure of some tectonic zones and in megastructures, and short-period – in seismic-fluid-geodynamic conditions of "water-rock" system.
