Abstract. The June 17, 1996 (M w 7.8) Flores Sea event is one of the largest deep earthquakes, and also produced an energetic aftershock sequence, allowing study of the spatial relationships between moment release, aftershock occurrence, and slab geometry. The locations of the mainshock, rupture sub-events, aftershocks, and background slab seismicity are determined using a relative location algorithm. The event occurred at the edge of a 150 km wide aseismic region that represents a tear in the lowermost part …
