Seismogram of the mainshock at the vertical component of nine BMKG seismic stations in North Sumatra

(1) We apply hypocenter relocation and moment tensor inversion by using regional permanent broadband seismic data of BMKG

(2) We perform template matching detection to search for missing foreshocks and aftershocks

(3) We perform finite fault inversion and static stress changes for the mainshock
