It has an area of 164.54 km² and an official intercensal estimated population of 1,537,2. The Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is located in the city. At this point the India Plate subducts beneath the Burma Plate, which carries the Nicobar Islands, the Andaman Islands, and northern Sumatra.Contents [hide] * 1 Overview * 2 Demographics * 3 Infrastructure and Facility * 4 Economy o 4.1 Cityscape o 4.2 Struggle for Independence o 4.3 Independence o 4.4 Situ Gintung Flood o 4.5 South Tangerang o 4.6 Education * 5 Transportation * 6 Pictures Gallery * 7 References * 8 External links  Overview Tangerang is an industrial and manufacturing hub on Java and is home to over 1,000 factories. The India Plate sinks deeper and deeper beneath the Burma Plate until the increasing temperature and pressure drive volatiles out of the subducting plate.Many shopping malls developed in Tangerang, such as Mal Summarecon Serpong, WTC Matahari, BSD Plaza, ITC BSD, Bintaro Plaza, and the biggest one, Supermal Karawaci. The only recorded earthquakes with a larger MW were the 1960 Chilean and 1964 Alaskan quakes, with 2.5×1023 joules (250 ZJ) and 7.5×1022 joules (75 ZJ) respectively. The earthquake generated a seismic oscillation of the Earth’s surface of up to 20–30 cm (8–12 in), equivalent to the effect of the tidal forces caused by the Sun and Moon. ^ Mitrica, Mihai Un milion de romani s-au mutat in Italia (“One million Romanians have moved to Italy”).
KRL Jabotabek serves from Tangerang and Serpong to Jakarta Kota. This is a truly enormous figure, equivalent to 9,560 gigatons of TNT equivalent (550 million times that of Hiroshima), or about 370 years of energy use in the United States at 2005 levels of 1.08×1020 J.

Certain areas consist of swamps, including the areas near the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The volcanic activity that results as the Indo-Australian Plate subducts the Eurasian Plate has created the Sunda Arc.
In recent years the urban expansion of Jakarta has covered Tangerang, and as a result many of its residents commute to Jakarta for work, or vice-versa. ^ “Transportation Issues and Future Condition in Tokyo, Jakarta, Manila and Hiroshima” (PDF). As well as the sideways movement between the plates, the sea floor is estimated to have risen by several metres, displacing an estimated 30 km3 (7 cu mi) of water and triggering devastating tsunami waves.
Many international corporations have plants in the city. These volatiles rise into the overlying plate causing partial melting and the formation of magma.
Tangerang tends to be hot and humid, with little in way of trees or geographical features. The rising magma intrudes into the crust above and exits the Earth’s crust through volcanoes in the form of a volcanic arc.
