Abstract (in english)
   Spatial and temporal analysis of global seismological data 1964-2005 reveals a distinct teleseismic earthquake activity producing a columnar-like formation in the continental wedge between the Krakatau volcano at the surface and the subducting slab of the Indo-Australian plate. These earthquakes occur continuously in time, are in the body-wave magnitude range 4.5-5.3 and in the depth range 1-100 km. The Krakatau earthquake cluster is vertical and elongated in the azimuth N30 E, suggesting existence of a deep-rooted fault zone cutting the Sunda Strait in the SSW-NNE direction.
