Short summary
This study develops the first national probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment for Indonesia. The findings indicate that for short return periods (100 years) the south coast of Java and west coast of Sumatra have a similar hazard level to north Papua and north Sulawesi. For long return periods (2500 years) the hazard is the highest in Java and Sumatra. The results can be used to inform and prioritise tsunami risk reduction activities.
