The 7km abyss deep under the ocean: Biggest fault on Earth found inside the deadly 'ring of fire'

It is a terrifying abyss, 7km deep.

Now, geologists have for the first time seen and documented the Banda Detachment fault in eastern Indonesia - and worked out how it formed.

It could lead to a breakthrough in tsunami prediction for the area, which is part of the Ring of Fire - an area around the Pacific Ocean basin known for earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  

Lead researcher Dr Jonathan Pownall from The Australian National University (ANU) said the find will help researchers assess dangers of future tsunamis in the area.

'The abyss has been known for 90 years but until now no one has been able to explain how it got so deep,' he said.
